from Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake-S desktop processors will be launched around the same time as AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop processors. Both platforms will be fully PCIe Gen 5.0 and DDR5 ready, but a new leaked spec sheet could hint that the red team might have a slight advantage in memory support capabilities over the platform. 13th generation Intel form.
Intel and AMD are gearing up for a brutal battle this fall, Raptor Lake-S native DDR5-5200 specs listed, may give Ryzen 7000 the edge
MiTAC, an industrial motherboard manufacturer, listed in its specifications PH12ADI motherboard, the native memory speeds supported by the upcoming 13th Gen Intel Alder Lake Desktop processors. According to the manufacturer, Raptor Lake-S desktop processors will get a boost of DDR5-5200 over Alder Lake’s native DDR5-4800 speeds. Both processors also support the DDR4 memory standard, but in the future Intel and AMD will focus more on the newer DDR5 standard.
Previous reports have speculated about native DDR5-5600 speed for Intel’s Raptor Lake Desktop line of processors, but it looks like DDR5-5200 is becoming the more believable scenario. This represents an overall increase of 8.3% over existing native Alder Lake memory speeds. But will that be enough to tackle AMD’s memory controller featured on the Ryzen 7000 desktop processors which is said to deliver native speeds as high as DDR5-5600, marking another 8% increase?
Well, it looks like AMD might end up having an edge in the memory department based on what they’ve said so far and what we’ve seen as well. APACER revealed in a slide that the new Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” family will also feature native DDR5-5200 speeds, but rumors say the actual speeds would be much higher and rated at DDR5-5600. Additionally, AMD is very confident about its EXPO (Ryzen Extended Profiles for Overclocking) technology and how it will really push DDR5 overclocking on the AM5 platform:
Our first DDR5 rig for gaming is our Raphael rig and one of the great things about Raphael is we’re really gonna try to make a splash with overclocking and I’m just gonna leave it at that but speeds that you thought might be impossible might be possible, maybe possible with this overclocking spec.

Currently, this is what DDR5 platforms look like for 2022:
- Intel Alder Lake – DDR5-4800 (Native – Confirmed)
- Intel Raptor Lake – DDR5-5200 (native – expected)
- AMD Ryzen 7000 – DDR5-5600 (native – expected)
So, as I said earlier, we are going to face some very stiff competition this fall with 13th Gen Raptor Lake on Intel’s side and Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ on AMD’s side.
