Why All Vengeance LPX Have SPD DDR4-2133MHz

My motherboard will be EVGA Z590 with Intel i9-11900K cpu.

The cpu has memory spec of 3200MHz.

 

I prefer Vengeance LPX for the low profile and I don't care about rgb.

 

All ram specs have various tested speeds but they always have SPD set at 2133MHz.

For reference I looked at other brands and they are the same way.

 

Why can't I find any ram (hopefully Vengeance) with SPD set at 3200MHz?

Then I could enable XMP for overclocking.

 

Why should people have to enable XMP just to get the rated speed of the processor memory support?

 

EDIT:

I just found this Corsair help page for memory:

 

https://help.corsair.com/hc/en-us/articles/360025282412-Run-DRAM-at-its-Rated-Speed-with-XMP

 

I guess that explains it. It's so that the memory can be used on a variety of motherboards.

I heard that Intel officially doesn't support enabling XMP. Which is strange since you have to in order to get their rated speed.

 

Thanks anyway. Sorry for the unnecessary post.
