The DDR5 standard is approved by JEDEC in 2020, but it will take some time to start marketing. The first processors that support this are the 12th Generation Intel Alder Lake, which also supports DDR4.
AMD needs a little time to support this new standard, which will not come until the launch of Ryzen 7000. These new processors, to support DDR5, will change the socket to AM5. This is different from Intel, because the Ryzen 7000 does not add support for DDR4, only for DDR5.
