As we know, some Intel 600 and 700 motherboard series already support non-binary memory. This type of memory includes non-standard capacities such as 24GB, 48GB or 96GB. Interestingly, over at ROG forums one can find a screenshot from Raja working for ASUS Tech Marketing, clearly showing that the support for non-binary memory is coming to the X670E platform as well.

The screenshot confirms that ASUS ROG STRIX X670-E would support four 48GB memory in four slots, this is a non-binary memory with capacity higher than 32GB but lower than 64GB. The system was equipped with four 48GB memory modules, each dated at 2600 MHz (5200 MT/s). Combined they offer 192GB of capacity, which is confirmed by the information displayed by the operating system. This also confirms that this system boots into Windows successfully.
