AMD Ryzen microcode update: improved DDR4 support

AMD's upcoming microcode update for Ryzen will improve DDR4 support

AMD will be pushing out a new microcode update for its Ryzen CPU architecture, something that will provide support for 20+ new RAM kits in the wild.




The new AGESA 1006 microcode update is something that was announced by a GIGABYTE spokesperson through a forum post, an update that will add over 20 new memory registers that will allow compatibility with existing Intel friendly DDR4 RAM.


Until now, the recommendation for DDR4 RAM with Ryzen processors were on Samsung's 'B die' memory chips, something that G.Skill and GeIL make. AMD's Technical Marketing Lead, Robert Hallock, confirmed that B die chips from Samsung were the best for out-of-the-box compatibility with Ryzen processors, and allowed for the highest overclocking results as well.
