AMD is preparing a new AGESA BIOS firmware to address 24GB and 48GB memory compatibility issues on the AM5 platform.
AMD AGESA BIOS Firmware 126.96.36.199 is on its way to resolve 24GB and 48GB DDR5 memory compatibility issues for AM5
Memory manufacturers introduced their new 24GB and 48GB memory modules earlier this month, which allow capacities up to 192GB. Motherboard manufacturers were quick to release the BIOS required to support these memory modules on 600 and 700 series platforms, but it appears that AMD partners have not released any official or BETA support for such memory modules or kits. .

As such, there were reports that AMD’s AM5 platform was having issues with 24GB and 48GB DDR5 memory modules. Although the BIOS could detect the memory, the PC never booted into the operating systems, which meant users had to fall back to a standard 16GB or 32GB DIMM solution. But it seems that AMD and its partners are aware of these issues and will soon release a new AGESA BIOS firmware to address the issues faced by users who want to use higher capacity memory kits and modules.
hardware Leak, chi11eddog, reports that AMD is working on a new AGESA BIOS firmware labeled 184.108.40.206 that will add initial support for 24GB and 48GB memory modules. Corsair 48 GB memory modules are shown to work fine on Intel 700/600 series platform and the same will be true for AMD AM5 platforms once the new BIOS ships. It will be very nice to get options up to 192 GB on the AMD AM5 platform as well for users doing content creation and processing workloads.
While there is no information on the actual release timeline for the new BIOS, our sources have mentioned that it will be available for various motherboard vendors in April or next month, so stay tuned for more information.
