A little over three months ago, leaks suggested AMD was going to introduce its own competitor to Intel's XMP profiles called RAMP or Ryzen Accelerated Memory Profile. However, it seems like the company has decided to change the name of its XMP competitor and according to VideoCardz, the standard will be known as EXPO or Extended Profiles for Overclocking. AMD filed for a trademark for EXPO back in the middle of February, although it's unclear if it has been granted as yet.

According to information that VideoCardz has been given, EXPO is said to be able to store two profiles for memory overclocking and it'll be exclusively for DDR5 memory. AMD has gone for a novel approach compared to XMP, with the first profile being for high-bandwidth optimised settings and the second for low-latency. The second profile is apparently optional, which makes sense since not all memory modules can do low-latency. EXPO is also said to be compatible with all types of memory modules, so it might also appear in SO-DIMM modules in the future.

Sounds like "Overclocking" was used a safety word for motherboard and ram manufacturers.

I dont see why the 2 profiles cant be swapped without going into the BIOS each time, once it is enabled in the BIOS.

Is this just a XMP standard or a true overclocking feature as in auto tuning of timings and such?

XMP 3.0 is 3 factory profile + 2 slot to save user profiles.

If that is the equivalent, I assume that the 2 new profile are part of the 3 factory profile. One for JEDEC, one for high bandwidth and one for low latency. Then the user could still have access to the 2 save slot.

But maybe they use these saved slot to preload overclocked profiles

Benchmark Scores I don't quite know how i managed to get such a top tier PC, I am not rich.
Expanded profiles for overcooking does make more sense for beginners, but i prefered RAMP, as it was similar to A-XMP

Is this just a XMP standard or a true overclocking feature as in auto tuning of timings and such?
Intel own XMP, this is them officially supporting it (converting any needed timings like Zen liking even numbers, etc)

XMP supports two profiles, this is saying that official AMD sticks can come with two profiles, one for MHz one for latency. I like that - 3600C16 with 3200C14 for example, would have been really popular on DDR4
