One question that we need to wait to see is if AMD actually does the design work to take advantage of DDR5 memory. From the lack of significant changes to performance between DDR4 and DDR5 in Alder Lake, Intel clearly didn't do any real optimization for DDR5, and just slapped the support in there, but making the link between RAM and CPU cores too generalized to really benefit from one or the other type of memory. Since AMD didn't rush the DDR5 based products out the door, AMD has been in the position to make it so the higher price of DDR5 may actually be worth the higher price.
