ASUS Preps 192 GB DDR5 Memory Support For Its AMD AM5 Motherboards

ASUS is amongst several manufacturers who will soon be offering support for up to 192 GB DDR5 memory on its AMD AM5 motherboard lineup.

Up To 192 GB DDR5 Memory Support Coming To The AMD AM5 Platform, ASUS Preps Latest BIOS Firmware

Last week, we reported that AMD and its board partners were working on the release of the latest AGESA BIOS firmware which would enable support for 24 GB and 48 GB memory modules, allowing for up to 192 GB memory capacities on the existing AM5 motherboards (X670(E) / B650(E)).

Now, ASUS's Technical Marketing Manager has showcased the initial support for up to 192 GB of DDR5 memory running on the ROG STRIX X670E-E Gaming WIFI motherboard. The ASUS rep also shared a screenshot that shows that the motherboard was able to boot into the Windows 11 OS without any hiccups. In the screenshot, we can see the motherboard running four sticks of Corsair Vengeance DDR5 memory kits with 48 GB capacities. That's a total of 192 GB capacity running at DDR5-5200 speeds.

Now ASUS did hide the BIOS version that they used for this motherboard and it is likely that it is either the BETA AGESA BIOS which was recently submitted here or the upcoming AGESA BIOS firmware. So far, we have only seen ASUS list the newest AGESA firmware & that's being rolled out across 8 X670E motherboards. The official website lists own the 0925 BIOS which is based on the AGESA firmware.

This is definitely a breakthrough in offering up to 192 GB capacities on the AMD AM5 boards. The Intel 600 and 700-series motherboards have already received several BIOS updates and optimized support for the non-binary 24 GB and 48 GB memory kits so we should expect similar support on the AMD AM5 600-series motherboards in the coming week.

While there's no word on the actual launch timeframe for the new BIOS, our sources have already mentioned that it will be available by various motherboard vendors in April or next month so stay tuned for more information.
