Head over to Newegg and you'll find a new listing for a 32GB (2x16GB) Teamgroup T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 memory kit with a blistering 7,200 MT/s transfer rate (so much for G.Skill snatching the DDR5 speed crown). It's the only memory kit to boast speeds north of 7,000 MT/s, and as such is the fastest DDR5 RAM to date... Read more...
Buying a memory kit is all about timing, and we're not talking latency settings. We're talking about pricing and the volatility of DRAM, as it's particularly sensitive to constantly changing market conditions. Fortunately for consumers, DRAM pricing is on a downward spiral and, if the market analysts at TrendForce are... Read more...
G.Skill is adding to its growing collection of high-speed DDR5 RAM for Intel's Alder Lake and AMD's soon-to-be-released Zen 4 platforms. The memory maker's latest offerings include a 64GB (2x32GB) Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-6400 kit and a class-leading 32GB (2x16GB) Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-6800 RAM kit, the latter of which will... Read more...
Pricing on DDR5 memory has been a bit of a pain point for anyone assembling or buying a cutting edge PC based on Alder Lake, and soon Zen 4. Call it an early adoption tax, if you want. There's good news, though—while initially high, DDR5 prices have come down significantly since Alder Lake debuted, and will apparently... Read more...
Memory is important for Ryzen. Well, memory's important for computers, period, but the specific performance of your PC's main memory is particularly pertinent for Ryzen systems, as enthusiasts are well-aware. Memory overclocking could be a cumbersome on Socket AM4 motherboards, so to sidestep that whole issue, AMD's... Read more...
Just as everyone knew would happen, faster DDR5 memory kits are emerging as times go on, following an initial entry into the marketplace around the time Alder Lake launched last year. Now as AMD gets ready to the join the fray with its Zen 4 processors and Intel prepping Raptor Lake, the memory market is fleshing out... Read more...
We may have just seen a key benchmark result for the upcoming 13th gen Intel Core processor family, code named Raptor Lake. A direct comparison appears to have emerged, pitting an Intel Core i7-13700K system with DDR5 against a previous seemingly otherwise identical result on a system featuring DDR4. Yes, it could be...

For the time being, ASUS can lay claim to one of its enthusiast motherboards helping to facilitate a new DDR5 memory record. Using the ROG Maximus Z690 Apex motherboard, renowned overclocker LUPIN_NO_MUSUME took a 16GB DDR5-4800 module paired with a 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake processor and cranked it all...

Mobile devices are in store for a major bump in bandwidth, one that leaves JEDEC's official designation in the dust. Chinese chip maker Innosilicon has demonstrated a 10,000 Mbps transfer rate on its LPDDR5X memory, which is a not-insignificant 17 percent uptick over JEDEC's LPDDR5X-8533 specification. The company... Read more...
Looked at the prices of DDR5 memory lately? The newer, faster, all-ECC system RAM is coming down in cost slowly, but it's nowhere near as cheap as ubiquitous DDR4 SDRAM. Plus, due to the latency advantages of hot-clocked DDR4 versus the less-expensive DDR5 modules on the market, DDR4 systems often end up faster in... Read more...
AMD gambled that DDR5 memory prices and availability would be relatively stable by the time Zen 4 starts shipping, and it looks like that bet will pay off. After dropping in price by as much as 8 percent this quarter, DDR5 memory pricing is projected to fall even further next quarter, perhaps by as much as another 5... Read more...
One of the challenges Intel faced when it launched Alder Lake was the high introductory cost of DDR5 memory modules. Perhaps for that reason, Intel opted to also support DDR4 memory with Alder Lake. AMD is taking a different path—it's going all-in with DDR5 when Zen 4 arrives later this year, which is a potentially... Read more...
On Socket AM4, it took a few generations for AMD to get its memory controller performance all maxed-out. The original Ryzen struggled with DDR4 memory faster than about 2667 MT/s, and it wasn't really until Zen 2 (the Ryzen 3000 series) that we started to see wide support for memory faster than 3000 MT/s. That's... Read more...
GeIL is laying claim to launching the world's first DDR5 memory kit with active cooling. Its new Evo V DDR5 memory kits come with a sort of industrial looking heatsink with a pair of minuscule RGB fans positioned in the top left and right corners. According to GeIL, this dual-fan cooing system "drastically" increases... Read more...
Samsung is laying claim to the first-ever 512GB Compute Express Link (CXL) memory module, which packs four times the DRAM as its previous version. In doing so, Samsung provides an upgrade path to scale servers to massive amounts of memory—tens of terabytes of DRAM—with just one-fifth of the system latency. That's... Read more...
It looks like G.Skill has cracked the code to one of the biggest complaints with DDR5 memory, that being propensity for high CAS latencies. There have been efforts to release lower latency kits, some better than others. Now for the first time there are a handful of DDR5 memory kits that bring the CAS latency to below... Read more...
Dell isn't looking to reinvent system memory, but it does want the industry move to what it claims is a superior form factor for today's increasingly thinner and lighter laptops. That's what you're looking at in the image above—it's called CAMM, or Compression Attached Memory Module, and far as Dell is concerned it is... Read more...
Hardware enthusiasts will already know, but for anyone who doesn't, the performance of AMD's extant Ryzen platforms is seriously impacted by the transfer rate of the system RAM. It's not actually the memory bandwidth that matters for most tasks; instead, it's because the speed of the "Infinity Fabric" is linked... Read more...
MSI finds itself in a braggadocios mood on Twitter, as is deserving after its overclocking team set a new DDR5 record. The validated (by CPU-Z) benchmark to beat now sits at 10,000 MT/s (or 10,0004 MHz if using technically incorrect but more recognizable nomenclature, as MSI opted to do), achieved in MSI's MEG Z690...

Slowly but surely, the DDR5 memory market is being fleshed out with more options, and not just with desktop modules either. There is a growing pile of SO-DIMM solutions for laptops and mini PC form factors outfitted with truncated memory slots. Corsair just added to it with the launch of its Vengeance DDR5 SO-DIMM...

G.Skill continues to crank out high-speed memory kits for enthusiasts and overclockers, its latest offering a 64GB DDR5-6000 Trident Z5 RGB memory kit designed to accompany Intel's 12th Gen Core desktop processors based on Alder Lake in a Z690 motherboard. Two 32GB modules comprise what G.Skill is dubbing a... Read more...
Having trouble deciding between DDR5 or DDR4 memory for your Alder Lake desktop build? You're not alone—this motherboard can't decide either. It actually rocks DIMM slots for both types of RAM, and as far as we are aware, it's the only socket LGA 1700 motherboard to swing both ways. This raises the question of what... Read more...
