AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs get go-ahead for performance boosting Smart Access Memory

Recommended Posts


AMD has today made available Smart Access Memory (SAM) on Ryzen 3000 CPUs. The feature, which allows for more effective communication between CPU and GPU, had previously required both the latest Ryzen 5000-series CPU and RX 6000 GPU in order to function, but is now been transplanted to Zen 2 desktop chips.


That will also include the new AMD RX 6700 XT graphics card when its release date rolls around later this month on March 18.


Unfortunately, that doesn't include the Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G APUs, as AMD clarifies on its website's footnotes.

There has been some talk and speculation about 3000 CPUs getting SAM for the past few months but now it's official.
