Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP) are certificates for DDR3 and DDR4 memory introduced by Intel.
The purpose of these certificates is to better utilize the memory speed.
Pre-stored profiles enable a simpler and more reliable overclocking of RAM - memory even outside the JEDEC - Standard.
Comparable certificates also exist for AMD systems, these have different names depending on the manufacturer, such as A - XMP (MSI), D.O.C.P. (ASUS) or EOCP (Gigabyte).
