AMD RAM compatible with Intel?

Hi

I am in the process of slowly collecting parts for a build, as they go on sale. Came across this ram for $100AUD (~$65USD), 2x8gb 3000 https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/geil-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820158789?Item=N82E16820158789. It seems like a great deal, however I have not committed to either AMD or Intel yet (waiting for ryzen refresh before deciding). Will this work on an intel system, even though it says AMD ram? 

When comparing them, the Intel branded ram has 'Intel XMP 2.0' chipset, whereas the AMD one has nothing listed. It should be fine for either right?

Thanks

It should be fine, it's listed as "AMD RAM" because they've verified it'll work with AMD processors

Specs: CPU: AMD Ryzen R7 3700X @4.4Ghz, GPU: Gigabyte RX 5700 XT, RAM: 32 GB (2x 8GB Trident Z Royal + 2x 8GB TForce Vulkan Z) @3000Mhz, Motherboard: ASRock B550m Steel Legend, Storage: 1x WD Black 1Tb NVMe (boot) + 1x Samsung 860 QVO 1Tb SSD (storage), Case: Thermaltake Core V21, Cooler: Noctua NH-D15

XT. 4000 is likely gonna be mid next year isnt it? Thats too far away for me lol. Been waiting ages for the intel 10th gen so I don't mind waiting until July 7 or whatever to see what AMD's got to offer

There is no AMD or Intel specific RAM (well not anymore at least).  Both will work for either.

Late 2020 to mid 2021. Exactly when is up to the crystal ball.

 

Dont expect a ton from the XT CPUs. 

 

Looks like an FCLK bump to 2000mhz (you can then run 4000mhz ram at 1:1) and a boost increase. Benchmarks will show what difference that actually makes.

Allways nice to wait if you can.
