The company has engineered its high-end DDR5 modules with a preset XMP profile, but Kingston is also letting motherboard makers manually adjust the power management integrated circuit (PMIC) beyond the actual DDR5 spec with 1.1V which allows the ramp up of DDR5 memory speeds through overclocking.

Kingston says that it expects to ship its DDR5 solutions in Q3 2021, while it explains the memory validation process as requiring "cooperation of the entire computing ecosystem and Kingston has forged close ties with the leading motherboard manufacturers and chipset makers throughout its 33-year history. This step continues the critical process of bringing leading high-performance and overclockable memory solutions to market later this year".
