It’s been two years since HyperX added AMD Ryzen support to our growing family of memory solutions. Since then we’ve continued to improve how our industry-leading RAM performs inside your Ryzen-powered rig. Many of our Fury and Predator ranges of DDR4 memory modules will work straight out of the box with Ryzen platforms, making the most of your fresh and powerful motherboard and AMD CPU. Here’s how adding HyperX to your AMD Ryzen ecosystem can be the final touch to get your games running smoother and your Chrome tabs neverending, and which HyperX RAM models to use if you’re planning a new Ryzen rig.
Ryzen-based systems have been benchmarked at higher framerates in many games when paired with faster memory. HyperX’s optimized FURY and Predator DDR4 modules allow for safer and more dependable overclocking performance, allowing you to hit those faster speeds and smooth out your FPS.
Most AMD Ryzen and Threadripper processors are limited to a maximum safe overclock speed of 3200MHz, and by the type of DIMM needed to achieve this speed (Single Rank “1R” versus Dual Rank “2R”) and the number of DIMMs installed per memory channel. If you need a refresher on what that means, check out our Ultimate RAM Guide for Gamers.
In some cases, 2nd generation Ryzen processors and motherboards will slightly improve overclock performance over 1st generation, so be sure to check out later hardware revisions. However even on older generation motherboards, continual refinements to BIOS and motherboard design have enabled better memory support and faster speeds on some models.
HyperX’s memory team has done extensive compatibility testing on AMD Ryzen platforms, and based on our lab testing we have compiled a list of parts we recommend to help you get the most out of your Ryzen-based system. We expect these modules and kits to work at the factory tested and programmed speeds, timings, and voltage, however some system boards may limit memory speed or timings based on the board design and BIOS.

(*AMD Ryzen clock ratios do not support 3000MHz speeds, so it will be optimized at 2933MHz)
Note: Installing the latest BIOS may resolve initial compatibility or performance issues. FURY Plug N Play DIMMs and Impact “PnP” SODIMMs are designed to operate at factory overclocked speeds using standard DDR4 1.2V out of the box. On most AMD Ryzen™ systems the memory will default to the industry standard (JEDEC) speed and timings. In order to achieve the factory overclock speed, please select memory Profile 1 from within the BIOS to force the factory overclock settings. A second, less demanding memory Profile 2 is also available if Profile 1 is not stable.
