Renowned Overclocker Teases Intel Arrow Lake-S “Core Ultra 200” Desktop CPUs, Could Feature Updated DDR5 Memory Controller

Intel's Aero Lake-S “Core Ultra 200” desktop CPU A brand new DDR5 memory controller may offer as one famous overclocker has hinted.

Overclocker suggests Intel's Arrow Lake-S “Core Ultra 200” desktop CPUs with an updated DDR5 memory controller launch in Q3 2024.

The information comes from MSI's Dragon Shield “Wuhan” event where the company showcased its latest products and innovations. During the event, MSI's in-house and leading overclocker, TOPPC, took the stage to briefly discuss the featured dual-channel memory controllers on current Intel CPU families and the upcoming Arrow Lake-S “Core Ultra 200” desktop. Tease the platform. There's no mention of the CPU family or its memory controller, but it's pretty easy to tell what TopPC was talking about.

Current Intel Alder Lake (12th Gen) and Raptor Lake (13th Gen / 14th Gen) CPUs feature both dual-channel DDR4 and DDR5 memory controllers. One should expect the same to happen on Intel's next-generation desktop CPU family, but it looks like Intel is introducing an updated IMC that will be great for memory tuners.

So far, DDR5 memory has only reached speeds up to 9000 MT/s in overclockable DIMMs and although JEDEC is setting the future 8800 MT/s speed standard for servers., client speed could see a big increase in memory support. There is still the question of whether all motherboards will be able to support speeds as high as we've seen with the 600/700-series motherboards, with only a few high-end variants and some boards like Z790 MPOWER Can support high-speed OC memory.

At the same time, overclockers using Intel's 14th gen platform have pushed the speed of DDR5 memory to the limit. The highest speed ever recorded is DDR5-11648.4. Which is just nuts. Intel's next-generation Arrow Lake-S “Core Ultra 200” desktop CPUs are expected to feature native DDR5 support of up to 6400 MT/s, which is about 14 times faster than the DDR5-5600 native speed listed for 14th Gen CPUs. % is the increase. This is the baseline that suggests Intel's Arrow Lake should be able to handle speeds north of 10K MT/s.

Here's what we know so far about the Aero Lake S desktop CPUs:

  • New Core Ultra 200 CPU branding (285K, 265K, 245K unlocked SKUs)
  • LGA 1851 Socket Longevity Plans Until 2026
  • DDR5 compatibility only, no DDR4 support.
  • Starting with the 800 series motherboards
  • Support for DDR5-6400 memory (native JEDEC).
  • PCIe Gen 5.0 lane expansion via CPU and PCH
  • Arrow Lake S First Desktop Family Supported (DIY)
  • Arrow Lake-S CPUs feature 3 MB of L2 cache per P-Core.
  • Arrow Lake-S CPUs feature Alchemist iGPUs
  • Arrow Lake-S CPUs include 8+16, 6+8 CPU SKUs.
  • Arrow Lake S 8+16 (24 cores)
  • Arrow Lake S 6+8 (14 cores)
  • No hyperthreading support (?)
  • 2H is launching in 2024.

Keep in mind that Intel's Arrow Lake chips will have Alchemist “Arc” Xe-LPG iGPUs onboard so the faster memory will definitely help the graphics chip meet its bandwidth needs. Also expect the first family of Arrow Lake-S “Core Utlra 200” CPUs to support only DDR5 memory, similar to AMD's AM5 platform. gave New LGA 1851 socketed motherboards should come out in the form of the 800 series. The manufacturer also indicates that the overclocker will launch in Q3 2024 so a July or August timeframe should be correct as Intel expects to unveil the chips in June 2024. Computex.
