ECS to Implement AMD Memory Profile Support into Its Motherboards

AMD has won a reputation not only for designing and supplying high-end processors but also for introducing its brand memory expansion, codenamed AMD Memory Profile. This development is called to store and share memory settings profiles and to facilitate the search for the most rational settings. Thus, ECS company is going to implement AMP support for DDR3 memory into its future and current lineup of motherboards. According to the available data, AMP technology will be applied to the upcoming motherboards with AMD processors, and to the current products by means of UEFI firmware update. This is the first 'revival' of the technology since its reconsideration and upgrade.



The integrated technology is destined to setup new frequency, voltage and timings showings which will facilitate in keeping DDR3 memory modules stable. As a rule, random-access memory with high frequencies of more than 2GHz require manual system overclocking. AMP will prevent the emergence of errors while setting …

AMD Has Officially Launched the Sale of Its Ryzen 7 CPUs

The AMD has just officially announced the beginning of its AMD Ryzen CPUs sale, designed for desktop PCs. The development of these processors took 4 years, and now customers can enjoy the results of the process – the up-to-date CPUs, based on the brand-new AMD Zen microarchitecture.
