To address the growing need for memory performance in high-end gaming and performance computing, Intel engineers developed the Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP). Intel co-developed the specification for Intel® XMP with its memory partners, which enabled performance tuning of DDR3 memory beyond the standard JEDEC SPD specifications.
The Intel® XMP profiles defined by the specification are extracted by the BIOS to tune the memory controller for optimal memory performance.
||Requires the use of DDR3 modules that are Intel XMP compatible.|
