DDR5 memory is slowly getting cheaper, with prices of DDR5 memory dropping 20% in the last month alone according to ComputerBase.
ComputerBase has been keeping a close eye on DDR5 memory pricing, with DDR5-4800 memory dropping down to under 5 EUR per gigabyte: 20% cheaper over the last month alone. ComputerBase has an awesome price tracker, that includes over 200 different DDR5 memory kits, with the standard 32GB DDR5-4800 desktop SO-DIMM kit (the JEDEC standard) costing 154 EUR, down from nearly 450 EUR at the start of the year, and down from 250+ EUR in February and March 2022.
The site also noticed price drops for U-DIMM memory, with 16GB modules of DDR5 memory -- Kingston DDR5-4800 memory for example, in a single 16GB DIMM -- costs 42 EUR. This is a huge reduction as well, as it was 99 EUR back in February.
Corsair has just unveiled its latest DDR5 high-performance memory kit, with the introduction of its new DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5-6600 CL32 memory: now the world's fastest DDR5 kit on the market.
The new Corsair DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5-6600 CL32 memory comes in 32GB (2 x 16GB) kits with tight timings of 32-39-39-76. Corsair explains: "At time of writing, these are the fastest DDR5 kits available to buy in the world, achieving remarkably tight timings of 32-39-39-76. Available in kits of 2x16 GB, DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB continues to break frequency barriers with unprecedented speeds, and stay on the cutting-edge of performance".
Corsair already has a few different DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5 memory kits on the market: with DDR6-6400, DDR5-6200, and DDR5-6000 that are now joined by their biggest brother in the DDR5-6600 kit. Corsair's new DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB DDR5-6600 CL32 memory is the perfect companion for the new Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs and flagship Intel Z690-based motherboards.
AMD has outed its enthusiast-grade X670E + X670 chipsets and a bunch of new motherboards are being announced, with MSI accidentally revealing AMD's new DDR5 memory overclocking technology.
MSI outed AMD's new "EXPO" technology, which popped its head up inside of MSI's own X670 launch slides... but AMD didn't make a mention of it. MSI has asked other websites to remove the post, as it seems mentions of EXPO is triggering alarm bells for the company, or it could be completely wrong.
We have no idea what AMD's new EXPO technology is going to do exactly, but there are some things that AMD didn't share, that MSI shared through the leaked slides. We know that AMD is claiming just 24 PCIe 5.0 lanes, but MSI is saying there will be 28 PCIe 5.0 lanes (this could change, could be a mistake, or could be a future SKU).
TEAMGROUP has just announced two new members of its new T-Force DELTA RGB DDR5 family of memory, with a new DDR5-6600 and DDR5-6000 kit.
The new TEAMGROUP T-Force DELTA RGB DDR5 memory is available in a new high-speed variant: DDR5-6600, while the company also has a DDR5-6000 low-latency kit with CL30 timings. Both of the new TEAMGROUP T-Force DELTA RGB DDR5 offerings are coming in 32GB kits (2x16GB).
TEAMGROUP uses its iconic 120-degree wide-angle RGB heat spreader, with smart RGB control. TEAMGROUP will have its new T-Force DELTA RGB DDR5-6600 and DDR5-6000 memory kits in July 2022, sending them to major motherboard manufacturers for verification testing. You'll need an Intel Z690-based motherboard, or one of AMD's future X670E + X670-based motherboards.
GeIL has just unveiled their new EVO V DDR5 RGB Hardcore Gaming Memory with a "ground-breaking dual-fan cooling system that combines RGB illumination and next-generation active cooling design into a one-piece molded heatshield".
The new GeIL EVO V DDR5 RGB Hardcore Gaming Memory comes in 32GB and 64GB kits with speeds of between DDR5-4800 and DDR-6600. The unique heat spreader is joined with an active cooling system with RGB lighting and comes in both titanium gray and glacier white variants.
Even with the extensive cooling system and dual-fan cooler, the GeIL EVO V DDR5 RGB Hardcore Gaming Memory can fit next to most CPU coolers of the physical height of the heat spreader. The two cooling fans are found in the heatshield's top left and top right corners, pushing airflow across the DDR5 RAM: up to 45% more thermal dissipation is achieved, which is quite significant. Nice work there, GeIL.
Sabrent must be working with CERN and the Large Hadron Collider in the multiverse, making products in alternate realities with thousands of staff working in tandem... because the company has released so many new products and we're barely 5 months into 2022.
The company has just unveiled its new high-performance, low-latency DDR5 UDIMM memory modules: available in 16GB and 32GB single sticks at DDR5-4800 speeds. Sabrent explains: "It seems like DDR4 has ruled the roost forever. Finally, new motherboards and architectures have allowed memory to grow wings with the advent of DDR5. Improved clock speeds promise up to twice the bandwidth of DDR4, all with lower voltage for better efficiency".
"To further help with that last bit, DDR5 has on-board power management to reduce motherboard cost and complexity. Sabrent's new DDR5 kits simply plug and play, install your memory kits of choice, enter the BIOS and hit AUTO, and reboot. For those that want to OC these kits, there is plenty of headroom to advance speeds if you want".
GIGABYTE has just nudged MSI out of the way of the DDR5 memory overclocking world record, where MSI smashed into 10004MT/s... GIGABYTE pushed 18MT/s more reaching DDR5-10022.
The record was broken by GIGABYTE's internal OC team that HiCookie leads, with the DDR5 memory frequency world record being achieved on the GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS Tachyon motherboard. This motherboard in particular, was crafted from its inception for overclocking... and those days are now here.
GIGABYTE not only used its own Z690 AORUS Tachyon motherboard, but its AORUS DDR5 memory -- which was DDR5-4800 before overclocking, with a single 16GB DDR5 stick -- pushed up to DDR5-10022. The GIGABYTE OC team had timings of 46-58-58-46-104-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tCR) when at DDR5-10022 speeds.
VIPER GAMING has just unveiled its new VENOM DDR5 performance memory, available in 16GB and 32GB kits with speeds ranging between DDR5-4800 and DDR5-6200.
The new VIPER VENOM DDR5 RAM comes in both RGB and non-RGB memory kits, with 16GB and 32GB kits of DDR5-4800, DDR5-5600, and DDR5-6200. You've got the option of RGB and plain non-RGB if you wanted, with enthusiasts and overclockers ready to use the new VIPER VENOM DDR5 memory with their new Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPU and Z690-based motherboard.
Roger Shinmoto, Vice President of VIPER GAMING explained: "Our VIPER Gaming fans waited quite a while for quality DDR5. The VIPER VENOM DDR5 is the first DDR5 DRAM that we distributed for hardware enthusiasts, hardcore gamers, and case modders addicted to unparalleled system performance and stability. VIPER's engineering team has put countless efforts to guarantee excellent compatibility and higher reliability across Intel®'s latest platforms, currently".
COLORFUL has just announced its new CVN Guardian DDR5 memory, ready to rock and roll with Intel's new 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs and Z690 motherboards.
The new COLORFUL CVN Guardian DDR5 memory comes in DDR5-4800, DDR5-5600, and DDR5-6000 speeds all in 16GB modules (single stick 16GB, so you'd need to buy two if you want 32GB, four if you want 64GB DDR5 RAM).
The company designed its new CVN Guardian DDR5 memory to go hand-in-hand with its COLORFUL CVN Series motherboards: available in the CVN B660M GAMING FROZEN, and CVN Z690 GAMING FROZEN. These motherboards will match the aesthetics of the new CVN Guardian DDR5 memory, and look killer in a gaming PC.
MSI's internal overclocking team has broken a new world record for DDR5 memory overclocking, with MSI OC member Kovan Yang smashing the record: hitting DDR5-10004 speeds.
The MSI OC Team used some very heavily overclocked Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 memory, boosting it up from its stock frequency of DDR5-4800 up to an insane DDR5-10004. The team of course used an MSI motherboard, with the MEG Z690 Unify-X and Intel's latest Core i9-12900KS processor, which was gimped down to 4 cores and a 425MHz CPU clock.
Kingston's Fury Beast DDR5 memory was overclocked to 5001.8MHz with high timings of 72-126-126-126-127-2 -- the only way DDR5-10004 specs were hit. Insanity, absolute insanity, hats off to Yang and the MSI OC Team for this incredible achievement.
