Some time ago, Intel officially began selling the long-awaited processors based on Alder Lake processor cores. These are the first Intel processors to be built on a 10nm technology called “SuperFin”. This is actually the 12th generation of Intel processors, and they are much more powerful compared to their predecessors.
Intel Alder Lake processors support both DDR4 and DDR5 system memory. However, because DDR4 and DDR5 system memories are not equipped with the same socket, motherboard manufacturers must decide which system memory to choose. However, this will likely not be the case when setting up motherboards with the Intel 700 family of systems.
There have been rumors online that Intel is pressuring motherboard manufacturers to provide only DDR5 system memory support for Intel 700 motherboards. These boards will also be compatible with Intel’s 13th generation processors. Here, of course, we are talking about Intel processors codenamed Raptor Lake.
DDR5 system memory, along with DDR5 system memory, will provide much higher performance compared to DDR4 memory. This in turn will provide users with a much better user experience. Unfortunately, DDR5 system memory is still much more expensive compared to DDR4 memory. In addition, their availability is very poor and it is difficult to purchase them.
