Back in July, JEDEC finalized the specifications for DDR5 memory, and laid out a number of key performance advantages over DDR4 including quadrupling the maximum die density to 64Gb and boosting maximum data rates from 3.2Gbps to 6.4Gbps [official]. Today, SK Hynix has announced that it is launching the world's very... Read more...
Although it’s a few years behind schedule, the final specifications for DDR5 memory have been released. The JESD79-5 DDR5 SDRAM standard was originally supposed to be released two years ago (2018), but now, new hardware based on the standard is expected to arrive in 2021 (late 2020 if we’re lucky). There are a... Read more...
It's about that time again in the desktop market to switch to a new memory standard. We first began the transition from DDR3 to DDR4 six years ago, and now memory suppliers are laying the groundwork for the leap from DDR4 to DDR5. So, what kind of advantages will DDR5 offer over its predecessor? Well, SK Hynix is... Read more...
The official introduction of AMD's Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 processors and the accompanying X570 chipset are just days away. We already know quite about the processors and supporting chipset courtesy of leaks, and today we're learning about official memory specs for the Ryzen 3000 desktop processor family. According to...

JEDEC announced an update to the the JESD235 memory standard that deals with the second generation of high bandwidth memory (HBM). This update brings two key feature enhancements to the standard. First, it raises the capacity limit for each device to 24GB, and it also raises the speed threshold to 307GB/s. If you... Read more...
A mere month after DDR4 was introduced for the first time on an AMD platform (Ryzen), the memory guidance organization JEDEC has decided to reveal its plans for DDR5. That's right: nothing can stop the progression of technology. As soon as we have something fresh to enjoy, the next big thing is right around the... Read more...
Is the world okay as-is with just DDR2 and DDR3 memory? Perhaps. We could get by, yes, but what about pushing the envelope? What about faster, faster, faster? Well, it's about time for memory to take the next major leap in speed. JEDEC, a known name in the development of standards for the microelectronics industry, today announced the initial...
