NETAC's new Z-RGB memory will offer speeds going all the way up to DDR5-8000

Kosta Andreadis | Feb 1, 2023 6:02 AM CST

In addition to blistering speed potential that will put it alongside some of the fastest DDR5 memory we've seen, it's built on the highly regarded and high-performing Hynix A-die memory module. Some users have been able to push the SK Hynix A-die to DDR-8600+ speeds with relative ease - leading to the tech being hailed as the fastest memory on the planet.

With 16GB and 32GB kits available, each featuring a slick layer of RGB lighting, the Z-RGB series from NETAC starts at 6200 MT/s CL32 at 1.35V, going up to 8000 MT/s CL38 spec. That will require 1.5V, so it might be limited to certain motherboards. If you're looking at this sort of kit, you're probably rocking a high-end board.

Micron has announced new DDR5 memory modules in 24GB and 48GB capacities

Kosta Andreadis | Jan 18, 2023 10:28 PM CST

Micron is introducing new DDR5 memory modules with 24GB and 48GB capacity, opening the door to enthusiast rigs with 48GB or 96GB of dual-channel memory configurations. They also support AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 profiles for easy plug-and-play setup with AMD Ryzen 7000-series and Intel 12th and 13th Gen CPUs.

The new DDR5 memory from Micron (aka Crucial) features data transfer rates of 5200 MT/s and 5600 MT/s, though it's the DDR5-5600 models that will have the new modules. These will be available alongside the standard 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB sticks. As for why? Well, outside of offering more choices and a cheaper way to boost memory without having to go the 64GB or 128GB route, the new module capacities are great for modern CPUs with 16 or 24 cores.

Samsung's new GDDR6W announced for 'immersive metaverse experiences'

Anthony Garreffa | Nov 29, 2022 9:29 PM CST

Samsung has just announced its new GDDR6W memory, which the South Korean giant says was created for "immersive metaverse experiences with powerful graphics memory" or whatever that means.

Samsung's new GDDR6W announced for 'immersive metaverse experiences' 04

The new Samsung GDDR6W was created with double the capacity, and performance based on the cutting-edge Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging (FOWLP) technology. The new Samsung GDDR6W memory is the industry's first next-gen graphics DRAM technology, building on top of the foundations of Samsung's GDDR6 memory with the new Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging (FOWLP) technology, boosting memory bandwidth and capacity.

GDDR6 has been on the market for a while now, with Samsung unleashing faster 24Gbps GDDR6 memory in July 2021, quickly becoming the industry's fastest graphics DRAM. The new GDDR6W modules have bandwidth and capacity that are doubled over GDDR6 while maintaining the identical side of GDDR6 modules.

SK hynix announces 32GB DDR5-6400 UDIMM / SO-DIMM memory, an industry first

Anthony Garreffa | Oct 26, 2022 8:47 PM CDT

SK hynix has just announced its new DDR5-6400 UDIMM + SO-DIMM memory modules, an industry first, with the company sampling to customers right now.

SK hynix announces 32GB DDR5-6400 UDIMM / SO-DIMM memory, an industry first 02

The new SK Hynix DDR5-6400 memory modules are the fastest DDR5 products for the PC so far, with the company using a new device called CKD (Clock Driver) which is used to provide more stable operation at the higher 6400Mbps speeds. SK hynix is the first company to use CKD, and the first to provide samples to customers, a PC SoC (System on a Chip) company, to conduct system evaluation.

Not only that, but SK hynix has said that it has completed customer certification for DDR5 in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities for servers in 10-nano class 4th generation (1a) microprocessing used. That was in August, while in September the company had customer certification for all DDR5 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB UDIMM memory modules for the PC and client were completed.

You can get 32GB DDR5 for FREE at MicroCenter with high-end Zen 4 CPU

Anthony Garreffa | Oct 2, 2022 9:22 PM CDT

If you are planning on buying yourself one of AMD's new high-end Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" processors, you might want to wait and check out the latest MicroCenter deal: you'll get 32GB of DDR5 RAM for free.

You can get 32GB DDR5 for FREE at MicroCenter with high-end Zen 4 CPU 01

MicroCenter is giving away 32GB of DDR5-5600 memory (G.SKILL Flare X5 series with built-in EXPO profiles) with any Ryzen 7 or Ryzen 9 series Zen 4-powered CPU. All of the AMD Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 SKUs are included -- so this means the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X, the Ryzen 9 7900X, and the Ryzen 7 7700X -- leaving out the mid-range Ryzen 5 7600X processor.

The 32GB kit of DDR5-5600 memory from G.SKILL costs $189.99 on its own, so if you are buying the Ryzen 7 7700X for $399, then you're getting half price effectively. You will need some new DDR5 RAM anyway, or you could sell the DDR5 second-hand and recoup close to 1/3 or more of the $399 price you just paid for your new Zen 4-powered Ryzen 7 7700X processor.

TEAMGROUP has some wicked-fast new DDR5 memory available on Newegg right now, with the new T-Force Delta RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-7200 memory. Yeah, DDR5-7200 memory.

TEAMGROUP T-Force Delta DDR5-7200 RAM arrives, costs $350 for 32GB 02

The company itself actually doesn't even list the new DDR5-7200 speeds on their own website, with TEAMGROUP officially listing DDR5-6600, 6400, 6200, 6000, 5600, and 5200 memory speed kits. The new TEAMGROUP T-Force Delta RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-7200 kit is listed on Newegg for $350 right now, ready for your new Zen 4 or Raptor Lake PC.

VideoCardz suspects this could be one of the first memory kits with the new Hynix A-die memory, as we saw M-die memory being pushed up to DDR5-7000, but now DDR5-7200 is here. The specific model number for TEAMGROUP's new T-Force Delta RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-7200 memory is "FF3D532G7200HC34ADC01", because you'll remember that.

AMD: yeah, so DDR5-6000 is the sweet spot for Ryzen 7000 'Zen 4' CPUs

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 31, 2022 9:05 PM CDT

AMD's new Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" CPUs usher in the world of DDR5 memory, with the company making it clear that DDR5-6000 memory is the "sweet spot" for your new Zen 4 system.

AMD: yeah, so DDR5-6000 is the sweet spot for Ryzen 7000 'Zen 4' CPUs 02

On the official AMD Discord server, Technical Marketing Manager Robert Hallock confirmed the news himself: using the AUTO setting will usually give you the most performant result unless you have an "astonishing overclocker". Hallock was fielding questions on Discord from users, in regards to DDR5 memory and their new Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" CPUs.

Hallock says that at its native setting, DDR5-5200 will operate in a 2:1:1 mode or 1733:2600:2600 clock, to which someone else replied saying "what is the sweet spot? 6000mhz" to which Hallock replied "roughly, yes" and then he said that to be more specific the "sweet spot" he's referring to is the best compromise of cost/stability + performance + availability + ease.
