KLEVV has just unveiled its new DDR5 overclocking/gaming RAM, which has a beautiful design and will arrive in speeds of up to DDR5-6400 for your new Intel Alder Lake-based gaming PC.
The higher-end overclocking and gaming RAM from KLEVV will arrive in other speeds between DDR5-4800 through to DDR5-6400, where I'm sure there'll also be plenty of room for some manual overclocking. KLEVV explains in its press release for its new DDR5 overclocking/gaming RAM: "DDR5 is the latest memory standard soon to be adopted by the PC ecosystem. Its key upgrades are larger capacities and considerably faster speeds compared to previous generation DDR technologies".
"The new standard incorporates Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC) and On-Die Error Correcting Code (ODECC) technology on the DIMM for the first time, allowing KLEVV to tailor its memory designs for improved power efficiency, stability, and better overclocking effectiveness".
JEDEC announced the publication of the DDR5 SDRAM standard update which included new features to enhance reliability and performance across a wide range of applications, in systems and high-performance servers.
The new features for DDR5 memory from JEDEC include bounded fault error-correction support, Soft Post-Package Repair (sPPR) undo and lock, Memory Built-In Self-Test Post Package Repair (MBIST and mPPR), Adaptive RFM, and an MR4 extension.
JEDEC also expanded the timing definition and transfer speed of DDR5, ramping up to 6400 MT/s for DRAM core timings and 5600 MT/s for IO AC timings to help the industry build an ecosystem up to 5600 MT/s. JEDEC Chairman Mian Quddus explains: "The fact that this update to DDR5 is being published so soon after the initial launch of DDR5 in July 2020 underscores JEDEC's ongoing commitment to continual improvement, and represents a collective effort on the part of all involved member companies to better serve the industry".
ADATA has thrown another hat into the DDR5 memory ring with the unveiling of its new XPG LANCER DDR5 gaming memory that has RGB lighting.
The new ADATA XPG LANCER DDR5 memory comes in kits of up to 16GB and speeds of up to DDR5-5200, with ADATA adding in a PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit) and ECC (Error Correcting Code) for enhanced performance and stability.
ADATA reiterates that the company is using high-quality ICs and PCBs to "ensure uncompromised performance and reliable overclocking, ideal for discerning gamers and overclockers. With support for Intel® XMP 3.0, users can get overclocking easily without the need to go into BIOS. There is no need to repeatedly adjust and fine-tune overclocking parameters".
ADATA has broken an overclocking record with next-gen DDR5 memory, with ADATA's in-house XPG DDR5 memory the first to be overclocked to DDR5-8118 speeds.
The company promised that it would be launching new DDR5-8400 memory in the future, but it wouldn't be with the first batches of DDR5 memory releases. However, just before the release of Intel's new Alder Lake and Z690 platform which has support for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 technologies, ADATA has pushed its DDR5 to 8118 MT/s.
ADATA's own in-house XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) overclocked ADATA's upcoming DDR5 memory to 8118 MT/s which wins XPG the award of the first DRAM provider to hit this milestone using DDR5 memory.
We can almost smell the Alder Lake CPU, next-gen PCIe 5.0 and next-gen DDR5 silicon from here... with GIGABYTE preparing some new AORUS DDR5 gaming RAM.
The new AORUS DDR5-5200 non-RGB memory kit has been spotted, with our friends at VideoCardz doing their leaking thing and showing us the new AORUS DDR5-5200 non-RGB RAM. The kit we have here today is the overclocked DDR5-5200 kit, with 32GB on offer with dual 16GB DDR5-5200 sticks.
AORUS will have support for Intel XMP 3.0 profile which will roll out on Intel's next-gen Z690 chipset, and the various Z690 motherboards. I'm sure GIGABYTE is wanting you to buy their new AORUS Z690 EXTREME motherboard for their new AORUS DDR5-5200 RAM, with the new AORUS Z690 EXTREME motherboard featuring an interesting little cover for the DDR5 RAM.
Intel is days away from launching its next-gen Alder Lake family of CPUs as well as the next-gen Z690 chipset and a huge flow of Z690 motherboards, all rocking new DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 technologies.
But how much more expensive will DDR5 RAM be over DDR4 RAM? It's a question that we don't have solid answers for just yet, but now we have a pretty good source: MSI. In a new post by MSI on their website regarding DDR5 RAM, MSI's Sara Lin explains that DDR5 RAM is expected to cost 50-60% more than DDR4.
Lin explains on the MSI website: "Historically, newer memory technology has always commanded close to a 30-40% premium over the previous generation. However, this time, DDR5 includes additional components that have driven the costs up further. As a result, we expect a 50-60% price premium compared to DDR4 at launch".
You can't even buy DDR5 memory right now, but there's already the world's fastest DDR5 memory unleashed by G.SKILL with speeds breaching DDR5-6600 in a larger 32GB kit.
G.SKILL is using timings of CL36-36-36-76 for its 32GB kit of DDR5-6600, using some of Samsung's very best DDR5 IC. The new member of the Trident Z family of DDR5 memory will be the perfect choice for gamers, enthusiasts, overclockers, and those chasing the most performance from their new Intel Alder Lake gaming PC.
G.SKILL will be offering the super-fast DDR5-6600 as a new member of the Trident Z family of DDR5 memory, with an option for RGB lighting with its Trident Z RGB RAM. The tighter timings on the DDR5-6600 are impressive, with CL36-36-36-76 compared to the normal CL40-40-40 timings of DDR5. This RAM is of course ready for Intel's new 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs and the Z690 chipset, which will support both DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0.
TEAMGROUP is the latest to join the DDR5 memory party, introducing its new T-FORCE VULCAN DDR5 gaming memory which was debuted during the recent TEAMGROUP Online Launch Event 2021.
The new TEAMGROUP T-FORCE VULCAN DDR5 will be available in huge 64GB kits with up to DDR5-5200 speeds on offer, with TEAMGROUP also having T-FORCE VULCAN DDR5 memory kits in 4800MHz and 5200MHz speeds, as well as offering single 16GB and 32GB DDR5 DIMMs as well as dual-channel kits with 2 x 16GB (32GB) and 2 x 32GB (64GB) kits.
TEAMGROUP's new T-FORCE VULCAN DDR5 gaming memory supports XMP 3.0 for One-Click Overclocking, making things easy for you to overclock your new DDR5 memory inside of your new Z690 motherboard and Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" processor.
I think you could build one of the most unique-looking gaming PCs with GALAX's upcoming LEGO-ready GAMER DDR5 memory. I mean, just check it out:
Intel's upcoming 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs will be ready for the world of DDR5 memory, with new Z690 motherboards to take in GALAX's new LEGO-themed GALAX DDR5 RGB memory. Better yet, it's not just LEGO-themed but LEGO-compatible: you can actually physically attach other bits of LEGO to this DDR5 RAM.
GALAX will have its new LEGO-compatible GAMER DDR5 RGB memory available in both red and blue, with an ARGB lighting strip and interlocking mechanism included -- and will work with LEGO and other brick systems. It's a pretty cool thing to see, something a little unique in a world of same-ol-same-ol.
Corsair has just unveiled its next-gen Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5 memory modules, ready for the world of DDR5 RAM and Intel Alder Lake CPU architecture... and AMD's next-gen Zen 4 CPU architecture when it launches in 2022.
Corsair's new Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5 memory will be offered in speeds up to DDR5-6400, while Corsair will use the same look and style it used on its Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4. There's a high-end heat spreader, 12 ultra-bright and fully addressable CAPELLIX RGB LEDs that can be tweaked with Corsair's own iCUE software.
The company only just unveiled its new Vengeance DDR5 memory kits barely over a week ago now, and were light on details -- the same goes here for the Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5 memory. We don't know much about it apart from the look and style, and that it'll be compatible with Intel's new 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" processors when they launch in November.
