HWiNFO will soon receive support for AMD’s next-generation AM5 Ryzen CPU platforms, as well as a new technology known as RAMP. The hardware monitoring software is also gaining preliminary support for Intel’s next-generation Granite Rapids Xeon series with the new release.

In addition to AMD AM5 Ryzen platform support, a name we have never heard of called “RAMP” is mentioned. We’re expecting the AM5 socket with the Zen 4 architecture, but this is the first time we’ve heard of RAMP. Here is the list of changes coming to HWiNFO soon:

  • HWiNFO64 has been ported to UNICODE.
  • Enhanced Intel XMP 3.0 Revision 1.2 support.
  • Advanced sensor monitoring on some ASRock B660 and H610 series.
  • Added AMD RAMP preliminary support.
  • Improved support for future AMD AM5 platforms.

AMD Raphael Ryzen ‘Zen 4″ Processors

We know the codename of the next generation Zen 4-based Ryzen desktop chips as Raphael and will replace the Zen 3-based Vermeer Ryzen 5000 processors. According to the information we currently have, Raphael CPUs will be based on the 5nm Zen 4 core architecture and will carry 6nm I/O dies in the chiplet design.

The red team hinted that it could increase the number of cores in the next generation desktop CPUs. Therefore, we can expect a slight increase in the current maximum of 16 cores.

The new Zen 4 architecture is said to provide up to 25% IPC gain over Zen 3 and reach clock speeds of around 5 GHz. The upcoming Ryzen 3D V-Cache chips based on AMD’s Zen 3 architecture will feature stacked cache structures. So it seems likely that the same technology will migrate to Zen 4 chips.

Expectations from Zen 4 Processors

  • New Zen 4 CPU Core (IPC / architecture improvements)
  • New TSMC 5nm process node with 6nm IOD
  • LGA1718 sokedollarsi AM5 platform support
  • Dual Channel DDR5 memory support
  • 28 PCIe Lane (CPU Specific)
  • 105-120W TDPs (upper limit range ~170W)

AM5 LGA1718 Platform

As for platform-wide, AM5 anakardollarsar will have LGA1718 socket. The platform will feature DDR5-5200 memory, 28 PCIe lanes, more NVMe 4.0 and USB 3.2 I/O, and may also offer native USB 4.0 support.

Initially there will be at least two 600 series chipsets for the AM5: the X670 flagship and the B650. The X670 chipset is expected to support both PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 memory, but due to the size increase, the ITX motherboards will reportedly only have the B650 chipset.

For Zen 4-based Raphael Ryzen CPUs, we’ll have to wait until at least late 2022, and there’s still a long time to be announced. Intel will join the competition with its 13th Gen Raptor Lake desktop processors.
