DDR5 tech has some problems associated with it. First and foremost, DDR5 is not easily available and this is a serious issue for potential customers. Secondly, DDR5’s high latency in comparison with the latency of DDR4 is being a cause of frustration for the users. A few months have passed since its launch and fortunately, both the above-mentioned deficiencies are seeing improvement. G.Skill seems to be working on minor issues such as latency as they have confirmed the launch of a DDR5-6400 memory kit with a CAS latency of just 32.
Reportedly, the Trident Z5 and Trident Z5 RGB 32GB (2x16GB) kits are estimated to run at DDR5-6400 CL32-39-39-102 with 1.40V. The IC is expected to be by Samsung or Hynix.
CAS latency of just 32 is quite remarkable for default operation, but it is just one time. The Trcd, Trp, and Tras are arranged at 39-39-102 and play a remake role. The memory controller of the CPU is also expected to play a great role in all this.
The company’s recent memory kits have won our hearts. Although the DDR5-6000 C36 kit is hard to get, it is quite impressive. Rumor has it that the trident Z5 modules were overclocked and made a world record DDR5-8888.
The DDR5 technology is in the initial phase of development. Much more development and betterment is anticipated with faster clocks, better timings and new world records. Who knows we might be getting DDR5-10000 in the near future.
