MSI has just announced that they will be the first major motherboard vendor to fully support the latest JEDEC standard memory for 32GB memory modules for its current MSI Z390 motherboard lineup. This support will be released with a soon-to-be-released BIOS update, however no mention was made as to when exactly users will be seeing these updates. MSI did provide a list of supported motherboards which will be upgraded to this particular JEDEC memory standard.
- MSI Z390 MOTHERBOARDS
- MEG Z390 GODLIKE
- MEG Z390 ACE
- MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON AC
- MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON

- MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC

The latest JEDEC memory standard supports 2048×8 memory allows for support for up to 32GB capacity on a single stick of of DDR4. For the Z390 chipset, this means that you’ll now be able to install up to 128GB of DDR4 on any MSI 4-DIMM slot Intel Z390-based motherboard. This news was expected however since we recently learned that the Z390 platform would provide support for up to 128GB of DDR4.
Not only the memory capacity, the MSI Z390 motherboards also feature exclusive DDR4 Boost and dragon alliance with optimized layout design and a fully isolated memory circuitry ensures perfect stability and performance.
No word yet if the same support will be eventually provided to the similar Intel Z370 chipset motherboards
