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...
We always caution folks against putting too much stock in manufacturer numbers. Companies always want their product to look like the best, right? Now, AMD's been pretty honest after getting burned by spurious marketing in the past, but recent Ryzen 7000 numbers look pretty darn good. So, what's the catch? We won't... 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...
AMD and Intel are both readying next-generation platforms, Zen 4 (Ryzen 7000 series) and Raptor Lake (13th Gen Core), respectively. In anticipation of what those platforms will bring, Adata is showing off a handful of products that users will be able to pair with Zen 4 and Raptor Lake, including a couple of high-speed...

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...
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...
Do you ever think your browsing habits may be what are causing a bit of your system to slow down? Well, Microsoft thinks so, and that's why the Redmond outfit designed sleeping tabs for Microsoft Edge. The idea behind sleeping tabs, which we talked about in September of 2020, is to make it so that the tabs that are... 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...
It's not taking long for memory makers to crank out DDR5 kits that blast way past the initial wave of 4,800 MT/s offerings that arrived when Alder Lake debuted. How high they'll go remains to be seen. In the here and now, however, Corsair is offering up for the sale the world's fastest DDR5 memory kit under its... 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...
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...
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...
Are you thinking about selling off your kit of Crucial Ballistix DDR4 memory? You may want to reconsider before parting ways with what just became a piece of computing history. If you're into electronic collectibles, that is. Either way, it's the end of an era as Micron has made the decision to discontinue all... Read more...
There are a lot more DDR5 memory kits to choose from now than when Alder Lake first launch, but you'll still pay handsomely for most of the more intriguing options. A quick check on Newegg, for example, shows 32GB DDR5 kits starting at around $310 to over $600—yikes! Should laptop DDR5 memory prove more affordable... Read more...
In the world of competitive DRAM overclocking, G.Skill is very much an active participant, often bragging about setting frequency records. The company has not done that yet for its latest achievement, perhaps because it's on the verge of having one of its Trident Z5 DDR5 memory kits hit 10,000 MT/s. There's not far to... Read more...
Since its launch, Windows 11 has had a slew of performance issues. Much like Pac-Man eating power pellets, Microsoft’s latest operating system does have a habit of gobbling up extra RAM. Now a former Microsoft engineer has provided his insight on how to stop the buffet. Michael Niehaus, former Microsoft Engineer... Read more...
