It's the same as DDR3 with HW memory controller used on both DE10-nano and Novtech boards. So, you don't need HyperRAM as you already have the similar DRAM with uncontrolled refresh cycles. And this RAM cannot be used in system where precise timings are required.

Currently, i see more troubles than advantages of these PSRAM chips.
