Guangwei and Asgard RAM brands are owned by the company, which announced its first-gen DDR5 memory comes at up to 4800MHz speeds and 128GB capacities.

Intel will be the first with support for next-gen DDR5 memory with its upcoming Alder Lake-S platform, speaking of which Intel just launched its new Rocket Lake-S platform with our reviews on the Intel Core i9-11900K here and Intel Core i5-11600K here. Intel will have support for both DDR4 and DDR5 memory with its next-gen 600-series chipset, making it much easier for gamers to transition over to DDR5 over time.
