AMD has reportedly settled upon a new memory overclocking standard for its next-generation AM5 platform and Ryzen 7000 Series processors. As initially hinted by a filing that surfaced back in February, AM5 users can probably expect to overclock their expensive new DDR5 memory with EXPO (“EXtended Profiles for Overclocking”), red team’s rendition of Intel’s existing XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) 3.0 technology. Sources suggest that EXPO supports two memory profiles, one targeting high bandwidth and another for low latency.

According to our information, EXPO will be responsible for storing two memory overclocking profiles for DDR5 series. The first profile will be optimized for high bandwidth use, whereas the latter will be for low-latency. Our source claims that the second profile is optional.

Furthermore, EXPO will work with all types of DDR5 memory, including UDIMM, RDIMM and SO-DIMM. This means that EXPO is likely to make its way to laptops at some point in the future, while the current Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” series are all limited to DDR5-4800/LPDR5-6400 specs.

An HWiNFO64 beta update in January had suggested that AMD was developing a new memory technology called Ryzen Accelerated Memory Profile (RAMP). It’s unclear whether RAMP is a distinct feature that will complement EXPO in the BIOS options of upcoming motherboards, or if it’s simply an older branding that AMD has since replaced.
