Meet AMD’s Extended Profiles for Overclocking

DDR5 have brought a lot of changes, and the Z690 chipset has brought even more, specifically the long first boot as it trains the memory the best way to interface with the Ryzen chip it is now housing.  AMD’s EXPO is intended to help with your move to the new platform, as it is specifically designed for that purpose.  Thanks to it being an open standard. Intel could adopt EXPO as well if they so desired.

The timings of 30-36-36-76-112 on the Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5-6000 is also good to see, as that is tighter than many others.  TechPowerUp tested it out with a Ryzen 9 7950X and Gigabyte’s X670E AORUS Master motherboard.  The Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5-6000 kit did well compared to other kits, and while Intel users might appreciate that it can be overclocked to 7GHz that is not particularly useful for the new Ryzen chips with a 6GHz sweet spot.  What you might like is the tiny performance boost they saw from manually lowering the CAS slightly.

Overall it looks like EXPO is working as it should and gives you great performance out of the box without needing to manually adjust frequencies and timings in your BIOS.

Corsair's Vengeance RGB takes the AMD DDR5 platform to a sweet spot. Using the new EXPO 6000 MT/s profile that's optimized for Zen 4 and tight timings of 30-36-36-76, this kit is designed to fit right into the Corsair ecosystem to provide a great end-to-end user experience.
