DDR5 Memory Gearing Up For A Major Price Drop Soon

For anyone who has been buying or assembling a top of art PC with Alder Lake and in the future the Zen 4, would have to go through the trouble of the pricey DDR5 memory. However, this might be changing soon as DDR5 memory prices have started to come down since the Alder Lake first launched. Once AMD’s Ryzen 7000 series are launched, these prices might drop down even further.


This has been the case with previous memory modules too. As far as AMD’s Zen 4 architecture is concerned, they seem to be going all in. Intel apparently had a different approach concerning the DDR4 and DDR5 memory modules when it came to the Alder Lake CPUs. The price drop can be attributed majorly to AMD’s decision and DDR5 memory makers will soon be offering price points lower than the current ones.

We have all been hearing of AMD’s latest EXPO technology which allows for memory overclocking solutions with a single click, much like the XMP and AMP. The only catch is that users will have to have a memory kit that supports this technology. It remains unclear whether these memory kits will be available at a premium as opposed to the regular ones. Regardless of this, the DDR5 memory prices continue to decline and this trend would like to continue into the next year as well.
