ADATA has just announced its new DDR4-4800 memory module, which is being made in up to 32GB capacities for large 64GB kits of DDR5-4800 memory.
The new ADATA DDR5-4800 memory will work in most major motherboards, with ADATA teaming with AORUS, ASRock, ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, and ROG to "ensure optimal performance and compatibility across a wide range of motherboards".
Nick Dai, Senior Manager of DRAM Products at ADATA explains: "Through our strong R&D capabilities and close partnerships with the world's leading motherboard makers, we are committed to offering memory modules with next-generation performance, higher capacities, and enhanced stability. In the coming months, we will continue to launch a diverse array of DDR5 products to meet the different needs of creators, gamers, and other users".
GeIL has just unveiled its latest Polaris RGB DDR5 memory kits available in speeds of DDR5-4800, DDR5-5200, and DDR5-5600 and capacities between 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB.
The company is using a large heat spreader and RGB lighting, for a super-slick style that would look fantastic in the right motherboard. Speaking of motherboards, you'll want -- no need -- an Intel Z690 motherboard that will handle DDR5 memory and Intel's new 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs.
GeIL will be offering its new DDR5 memory in a large variety of variants, with the DDR5-5600 memory available in 16GB, and 32GB kits while if you want 64GB in a single kit you'll need DDR5-5200. Although, you're better off buying 2 x 32GB DDR5-5600 kits... but if you want the lower latencies then the DDR5-5200 kits are better.
G.SKILL has just announced its very latest flagship Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 memory series, ready to rock and roll with next-gen speeds for Intel's upcoming Alder lake CPU launch. Check it out:
The new G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 memory series will arrive in both RGB and non-RGB variants, with the highest-end offering blasting up to DDR5-6400 with CL36 timings. G.SKILL is tapping Samsung DDR5 memory ICs so you can e expect some of the highest speeds and lowest latencies.
Each of the DDR5 ICs has twice the amount of banks and bank groups, as well as each DDR5 memory module featuring an on-board power management integrated circuit chip meaning that we have more reliable, and better signal integrity at higher speeds... perfect for DDR5 memory overclocking.
Samsung has just kicked off mass production of their new DDR5 memory, with speeds of up to DDR5-7200 and massive capacities of 768GB kits.
The new DDR5 RAM is made in-house on Samsung's own 14nm EUV process node, with this DDR5 memory aimed at HPC and AI servers for now. DDR4 offers 3.2Gbps speeds, while Samsung is kicking things off at 7.2Gbps with its DDR5 -- with Samsung being able to offer 512GB to 1TB capacities through to 768GB and 1.5TB capacities with DDR5, oh boy.
Jooyoung Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of DRAM Product & Technology at Samsung Electronics explains: "We have led the DRAM market for nearly three decades by pioneering key patterning technology innovations. Today, Samsung is setting another technology milestone with multi-layer EUV that has enabled extreme miniaturization at 14nm - a feat not possible with the conventional argon fluoride (ArF) process".
Taiwanese manufacturer V-Color has announced its new DDR5 memory with the V-Color DDR5-6333 memory teased with high speeds and an RGB lighting strip at the top.
The new V-Color DDR5-6333 memory teased by Hassan Mujtaba from Wccftech, with the 16GB DDR5 DIMM featuring a white theme and RGB lighting strip at the top. JEDEC's regular specs of 4800 aren't touched here, with V-Color kicking things off at DDR4-6333.
16GB per module means dual-channel kits will boast 32GB, while 64GB kits of DDR5 should be a much bigger norm in the future. You'll need a new CPU and motherboard, with Intel about to launch its next-gen Alder Lake CPUs and 600-series platform that will support DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 technology.
DDR5 memory isn't even here yet and we've got ADATA breaking overclocking records with its new XPG Gaming DDR5 RAM, pushing it right up to DDR5-8118 speeds.
The new Intel Alder Lake CPU platform will be launching in the coming weeks with both DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 support, with ADATA now teasing the overclocking side of its XPG Gaming DDR5 RAM. ADATA pushed their DDR5-4800 memory up to DDR5-8118 (CL50-50-50-160-210-2T) while the DDR5-6800 was pushed up to DDR5-8104 (CL52-52-52-96-148-2T).
ADATA explained: "XPG, a fast-growing provider of systems, components, and peripherals for Gamers, Esports Pros, and Tech Enthusiasts, today announces that its XPG Overclocking Lab (XOCL) has overclocked its upcoming DDR5 memory module to a frequency of 8,118 MT/s. XPG is the first DRAM provider to reach this milestone with a memory module. This achievement highlights XPG's know-how and expertise in pushing memory modules to their full potential. The record-breaking milestone was achieved with a memory module with a stock clock speed of 4,800 MT/s".
Corsair is showing off its next-gen Vengeance DDR5 memory nice and proudly, with a single image teased -- no specs, no details, just an image.
Well, not even an image because this would be a render... but still, this is the Corsair Vengeance DDR5 memory that will start off at DDR5-4800 speeds at just 1.1V. We should expect highly-clocked DDR5 memory that will push much further than this, upwards of DDR5-8000 speeds.
Corsair will launch its Vengeance DDR5 memory with what should be some next-gen Dominator DDR5 memory, too. Intel will be the first to market with DDR5 memory support with the launch of its Alder Lake platform in the coming weeks, which will not only support DDR5 memory but also PCIe 5.0 as well.
G.SKILL has just teased its next-gen DDR5 RAM and asked gamers if they're ready for the next-gen... which I'm sure you're totally ready, because I know I am. Here's your tease:
The new G.SKILL Trident Z DDR5 gaming RAM will be unveiled in full in the coming weeks and months, but G.SKILL is wanting to know if we're all ready for it. Right now the company has some of the very best DDR4 RAM on the market with its beautiful-but-fast Trident Z RGB, Trident Z NEO, Trident Z RGB DC, Trident Z Royal, and Trident Z Royal Elite DDR4 series RAM.
The company uses the very best DRAM dies that offer some of the best performance you can get, as well as overclocking headroom for breaking OC world records. We don't know about the DDR5 memory side of things from G.SKILL but we should see a similar -- hopefully slightly tweaked design -- with some beautiful RGB lighting that we've come to know and love.
Samsung has unveiled something rather hot during the annual HotChips 33 event, its new 8-stacks TSV modules that usher in up to 512GB DDR5 modules for the future.
The company will be using 8-stack packages with lower heights than 4-stack DDR4 packages, with the reduction in height made possibly through smaller gaps between the dies -- a 40% reduction, which is a big deal -- and using thin wafer handling techniques. We will also see 8-stack TSV modules with better cooling, too.
512GB of DDR5 memory per module is going to be a huge upgrade for HEDT users and servers, where DDR4 memory had limits of just 32GB and up to 64GB capacity per DIMM. There were very limited runs of 128GB and 256GB modules for the server market, but DDR5 is really going to deliver with 512GB DDR5 modules in the future.
PNY has just announced its new Performance DDR5 range of RAM, starting at DDR5-4800 and it'll drop in Q4 2021 for next-gen platforms.
The new PNY Performance DDR5 RAM will be available in 16GB modules, so expect 32GB and 64GB kits at the very least. The company will have its DDR5 RAM running at 1.1v and will have one-die ECC support, too. DDR5 has on-module conversion, which reduces voltage wear and less noise is generated -- compared to DDR5 which has the motherboard handling voltage conversion.
Intel's next-gen Alder Lake CPUs will be launching later this year, where Intel will be the first with DDR5 support on its motherboards. AMD will have DDR5 memory support in 2022 and beyond, with the launch of its next-gen Zen 4-based Ryzen 6000 series CPUs.
