Thanks to the Eurasian Economic Commission, it has become known that Asus prepares to launch nothing less than 16 motherboards equipped with the Intel Z690 chipset for Intel Alder Lake processors, but interestingly, the names of these motherboards reveal that the top-of-the-range models, the Asus ROG Maximus, they will only offer support for DDR5 RAM.
The conclusion has been reached due to the fact that the most modest motherboards are multiplied by two, for example like the Asus PRIME Z690-P and the Asus PRIME Z690-P D4 or the Asus PRIME Z690-V or Asus PRIME Z690-V D4, which is basically telling us that we will have variants of motherboards that work with DDR5 or DDR4 memory according to our choice.
If we think about it, it is not a bad idea at all, and it is that who can pay the extra cost of a motherboard with support for DDR5 RAMAlong with the memory itself, it will always choose this combination, but if a user wants to renew an Alder Lake team, they can always buy a DDR4 motherboard and reuse the memory you already have, or if it is a new PC, buy it, but of course, it will be cheaper too, so it is to offer an affordable option.
