A number of tech giants have announced the successful development of DDR5 Memory but unfortunately mass production hasn’t started yet.
Luckily, the fourth-largest RAM manufacturer, Jiahe Jinwei, has come to the rescue as they have announced that DDR5 RAM from Micron has entered its facility. The manufacturer owns the following RAM brands: Guangwei or Asgard.
In comparison to its predecessors, the DDR5 modules will consume less power and will be capable of achieving higher overclocking speeds.
The platforms supporting DDR5 will arrive soon as Intel is expected to launch its first DDR5 capable platform based on the 12th Gen Core Alder Lake-S series. Intel’s new 600-series chipset will support both the DDR5 and DDR4 RAM since the transition requires time.
AMD on the other hand will offer DDR5 platforms based on the new AM5 socket which will be introduced in the Zen4 CPUs. However, AMD has not provided any launch schedule yet.
