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...
Look, JEDEC might be fine and dandy with DDR5-4800 memory kits, but that's not the kind of speed that excites enthusiasts, not when memory makers had been talking up a big game prior to the launch of Alder Lake (the only consumer desktop platform at the moment that supports DDR5). But a DDR5-6400 memory kit? Now... Read more...
G.Skill continues to claim overclocking records with its Trident memory products, and that has continued in the emerging DDR5 era. The company's latest bragging right, made possible with the help of ASUS, applies to its Trident Z5 DDR5 memory—it set a world frequency record at DDR5-8888 while nestled in an ASUS ROG...

The transition to DDR5 memory on a large scale is going to take some time—it will likely be years before DDR5 outpaces DDR4, even as more platforms arrive that support the newer memory standard. As such, the beginning of the transition phase can be a bit clumsy, particularly right now as there's also a DDR5 shortage... Read more...
If you head over to Newegg, you'll notice that almost all of the DDR5 memory listings carry the dreaded 'OUT OF STOCK' badge, and in all-caps for good measure. The only DDR5 kits available are from marketplace sellers who have jacked up pricing beyond the premium that DDR5 already commands. Given that Alder Lake is... Read more...
As time goes on, we can expect memory makers to release DDR5 kits with increasingly higher data rates, as well as lower latencies. In fact, it's already starting to happen. Corsair has added a DDR5-6400 Dominator Platinum RGB memory kit to its lineup, which is faster than anything you can buy on Amazon or Newegg right... Read more...
The introduction of Alder Lake has created demand among home consumers for newfangled DDR5 memory modules, but anyone hoping to score a kit will have to pay a premium (compared to DDR4). And that's before factoring in scalper pricing and bundles like the ones in Newegg's Shuffle program. There's some good news... Read more...
It was always a given that DDR5 memory would command a premium over DDR4 kits at the outset, but $2,399.99 for a 32GB package? That's just plain ridiculous. It's also what a recent kit of Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5-5200 recently sold for on eBay as scalpers continue to make bank on tech items that are in hot... Read more...
We have only now entered into the era of DDR5 memory with the introduction of Intel's Alder Lake platform pushing us through the door, and it will take some time for the latest memory standard to gain significant traction. That's to say, DDR4 isn't going to disappear from the market in the near future. Nevertheless... Read more...
In computer security, "cracking" systems is all about gaining access where you aren't supposed to have it. One of the most definitive ways to do this is by "pwning"—or "taking control of"—a system's main memory interface. Normally, doing so requires physical access to the system, but security researchers have... Read more...
Most records are destined to be broken, and make no mistake, that's going to happen at a breakneck pace in DDR5 land once things really get going. It's already happening, to some extent, with G.Skill leading the way. Earlier this week, for example, G.Skill showboated hitting DDR5-7000 on its Trident Z5 memory, the... Read more...
Slowly but surely, memory makers have begun announcing DDR5 memory kits for Intel's Alder Lake platform. Most of them have been relatively modest in speed, at or around DDR5-4800. Meanwhile, G.Skill is doing what it does—focusing on enthusiast kits and seeing how far it can push its own memory products. The best... Read more...
The big news today is Intel's 12th Gen Core Alder Lake launch, which kicked off a bevy of product announcements from various system builders and hardware partners. G.Skill is among them. To avoid getting lost in the noise, G.Skill today came out swinging with a high-end Trident Z5 DDR5-6800 memory kit designed for... Read more...
G.Skill has carved out an enthusiast following for its high-performance memory kits and its efforts within the competitive overclocking community. Not looking to slow things down in the DDR5 era, G.Skill announced several "extreme performance" DDR5 memory kits, culminating in DDR5-6400 with comparatively tight timings... Read more...
