I've become rather interested in Gigabyte's new high-end Aorus 17X AZF (specs, left column) and until they release new subproduct SKUs it looks like the only available configuration is called AZF-C5US665SP which carries 2×16GB DDR5-5600, and I can't find any retail vendors hawking 262-pin LPDDR5 certified to that rate (PC5-44800), so that means one of two things: either the modules are factory OCed (which would also mean the mobo has an HM770 chipset rather than a WM790) or they're just getting faster-rated modules that haven't hit retail yet. Why do I care? I want to run two 2R×8 (32GB) modules, and I don't know what to buy or how they got there, is XMP 3.0 on the board (it could be, but Intel wants you to ask the laptop mfg) or am I starting with lower-binned modules and manually OCing? I just wish someone had or could borrow one of these machines and run CPU-Z or AIDA64 or something and see what exactly it's working with, before I commit that kind of money (not that it'd be a dealbreaker but I just hate the vendor part opacity in laptops). Anyone have a guess or know anyone with one of these things?
