Intel Raptor Lake CPUs May be launched with Native DDR5-5200 RAM Support

    A datasheet including the full specifications of an industrial Thin Mini-ITX LGA1700 motherboard has surfaced as an interesting piece of information about the next 13th generation Intel Raptor Lake-S (RPL-S) systems(opens in new tab). The Mitac PH12ADI(opens in new tab) has an H610 or Q670 chipset that supports DDR5 RAM and is designed for 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake (ADL-S) Core i9, i7, i5, and i3 processors up to 65W.


    If you’re building an Alder Lake system, Mitac recommends using DDR5-4800 RAM to fill the two 262-pin SO-DIMM slots on this motherboard. Raptor Lake, on the other hand, appears to support DDR5-5200 modules by default, according to the Mitac datasheet.

    By default, Intel’s 13th Gen Core CPUs would support DDR5-5200, which would be a tiny but welcome improvement. It implies that any Raptor Lake system should be able to plug in DDR5-5200 modules and proceed without any additional configuration steps or specific motherboard ‘overclocking’ support.

    When Raptor Lake hits, this is what can convince you to switch to a new processor as well as a new motherboard. There has been some speculation that motherboards designed for Intel 700-series chipsets will only support DDR5. With its initial batch of Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ processors and AM5 socket motherboards, AMD has already chosen this path.


    More information on Raptor Lake CPUs, speed, memory support, and the new 700-series chipsets (e.g. Intel B760, H770, and Z790 motherboards) will be available closer to the introduction, which is planned for Q4 of this year. Intel accidentally stated about a year ago that their 600-series chipsets will be compatible with two generations of processors: Raptor Lake and Raptor Lake 2.
