KLEVV has just introduced its new DDR5 standard U-DIMM and SO-DIMM memory at DDR5-5600 speeds, ready to rock and roll inside of your new Intel "Raptor Lake" or AMD "Zen 4" system.
The new KLEVV DDR5 standard memory is fully compliant with JEDEC standards at DDR5-5600 speeds in both its U-DIMM and SO-DIMM variants: U-DIMM for a desktop PC and SO-DIMM for a laptop. KLEVV is making its new DDR5-5600 memory available in a single 16GB DDR5-5600 as well as a 32GB kit with 2 x 16GB sticks.
KLEVV is aiming its new DDR5 RAM for multiple markets including business, learning, entertainment on desktop and laptops... no mention of gaming systems there in their press release, maybe a hot tip: add that in, because gamers (there would be at lease ONE) that would buy this memory.
GIGABYTE has teamed with TEAMGROUP on enabling XMP support for a hefty DDR5-7800 memory on new AORUS Z790-based motherboards, and Intel's new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" processors.
The new XMP DDR5-7800 memory will work on the Z790 AORUS EXTREME and Z790 AORUS MASTER motherboards with TEAMGROUP T-FORCE DELTA RGB DDR5 memory.
GIGABYTE's new high-end motherboards have new generation Shielded Memory Routing design, exclusive BIOS settings, top-quality components, and an advanced design from hardware to firmware on their motherboards. This is how they've achieved the DDR5-7800 memory support on their new Z790 motherboards.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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'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.
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.
GeIL has just unveiled its new AMD EXPO DDR5 memory kits in both "EVO V" and "Polaris" DDR5 memory families, where they even have RGB lighting and active cooling.
The new GeIL EVO V AMD Edition DDR5 memory will come with RGB lighting and an active dual-fan cooling system, where the DDR5 RAM has two small fans built into the top of the heat spreader that keeps the internals nice and cool, and helps blow away the hot air that the DDR5 memory is generating.
There's also a beautiful RGB diffuser on the top of the GeIL EVO V AMD Edition DDR5 memory, while there's even RGB lighting inside of the two fans as well. The module itself is tall, so you'll have to make sure you've got the room... but it'll also look slick, too.
Corsair has just announced it has launched its new DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5 memory, ready for AMD's new AM5 platform and Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" CPUs.
There's also the new Corsair VENGEANCE DDR5 memory (in both RGB and non-RGB variants) for AMD, with all of Corsair's new DDR5 memory supporting AMD's new EXPO technology. Corsair is making its new DDR5 memory kits available in 64GB capacities, with speeds of up to DDR5-6000.
Corsair leads its new AMD Zen 4-ready RAM with the DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5 for AMD, which features the iconic and beautiful DHX cooling system with 12 ultra-bright RGB Corsair CAPELLIX LEDs and a stunning forged aluminum heat spreader which the company is making available in a unique gray color-way exclusive to their new Corsair DDR5 for AMD memory.
AMD has confirmed its new EXPO technology, which makes overclocking your DDR5 memory inside of your new AM5-based motherboard and new Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" processor easier.
The new AMD EXPO technology is offered as a one-click DDR5 overclocking tool for new Ryzen 7000 series CPUs, where AMD promises there's up to 11% enhanced gaming performance at 1080p with it enabled. There's also lowered latency, down to around 63ns.
AMD has said that it's making its new EXPO technology open with a standard license and royalty-free, which means we'll see it adopted into the market quicker, and cheaper. AMD is working with around 15 partners with DDR5 memory kits that offer up to DDR5-6400 speeds, with the likes of ADATA, Corsair, G.SKILL, Kingston, and more are ready for the world of Zen 4 + AMD EXPO technology.
Samsung has announced that development has started on its next-generation DDR5 memory modules, with a gigantic 1TB DDR5 capacity coming in the very near future.
You and I might not need 1TB DDR5 memory modules, at least not right now, but Samsung is not making it for consumers: the next-generation DDR5 memory modules are aimed at next-gen servers and HPC (high-performance computing) systems.
In the regular world, we have the heights of 32GB per DIMM, so you can fill a system with 128GB of DDR5 RAM pretty easily (4 x 32GB = 128GB) but Samsung has been making gigantic DIMMs for a while now. We have 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and even mammoth 768GB DIMMs that we were reporting on this time last year... but now Samsung is entering the world of 1TB capacities on DDR5 memory.
