G.Skill showcase its eye-watering DDR5 RAM at Computex 2023
As with every year, G.Skill has some incredible memory kits on display at Computex, and Computex 2023 was no different, with the company showcasing its DDR5 Trident Z5 Royal Elite, the Trident Z5 Royal, and the Trident Z5.
G.Skill walked me through some of its newest RAM offerings, and while there are hardly any details, if any at all, on speeds or specifications, G.Skill did say to expect extremely fast speeds on both of these DIMM modules. As with G.Skill's DDR4 modules, the company will be offering DDR5 variants for its top-of-the-line Royal Elite, the Royal, and Trident Z5. While this article will lack any specification details, we will be able to take a close-up look at each of the variants.
Below is the Trident Z5 memory kit, which will come equipped with an RGB diffuser that can be disabled for those gamers that aren't into all of the flashy lighting. Additionally, the Trident Z5 memory kits will come with a gold or silver trim with a brushed back and front plate located in the center.

COLORFUL's new CVN ICICLE DDR5 memory is not only fast, but looks great too
COLORFUL is launching a new range of DDR5 memory kits designed for overclockers and enthusiasts with its new COLORFUL CVN ICICLE DDR5 memory. With support for Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) 3.0 technology alongside using high-quality Hynix A-die memory chips, the new memory kits are set to launch Q2 2023 with a high-speed configuration of DDR5-6600MHz with CL34 timing.
And with the kits using a 10-layer PCB for greater stability and integrity when overclocking, COLORFUL has also managed to push these new DDR5 kits to speeds beyond DDR5-10000.
With COLORFUL's internal iGame LAB team of professional overclockers, the team achieved this with the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 APEX motherboard, and you can check out the fully validated results here.

NEO Semiconductor's new 3D X-DRAM technology is groundbreaking 3D NAND-like DRAM
NEO Semiconductor has announced that it has developed the "world's first 3D NAND-like DRAM cell array," which aims to increase DRAM chip density using established 3D stacking technology. Designed to overcome DRAM's capacity bottleneck, the company claims this new groundbreaking tech could "replace the entire 2D DRAM market."
The company filed all relevant patent stuff with the United States Patent Application Publication on April 6, 2023, for what it's calling a 3D NAND-like DRAM cell array structure for memory. This new form of 3D X-DRAM can be manufactured using existing 3D NAND-like processes based on capacitor-less floating body cell technology.
According to NEO Semiconductor, the result is high-speed, high-density, low-cost, and high-yield - a bold claim. The company notes that the technology can achieve an impressive 128 GB density with 230 layers, an eight-fold increase over today's memory capacity.

Lexar's new ARES RGB DDR5 memory kits are designed for gamers and creators
As with new technology, the transition to DDR5 memory has been slow and gradual. But with most CPUs and motherboards supporting DDR5 in 2023, we're seeing more and more affordable DDR memory kits hit the market - with the latest coming from Lexar, aimed at gamers and content creators.
As per its namesake, the new Lexar ARES RGB DDR5 Desktop Memory features a funky RGB lighting strip, but with quick CL32-36-36-68 / CL34-38-38-76 overclocking timings via Intel XMP 3.0 and AMD EXPO, you've got speeds of up to up to 6000MHz.
The modules also feature built-in Power Management IC (PMIC) to enhance power efficiency and on-die ECC for improved stability and reliability. Plus, an aluminum heat spreader keeps them cool when gaming or alt-tabbing between a dozen different Chrome tabs, which seems to be the main culprit for my main rig's RAM usage.
