A tweet from hardware leaker @momomo_us reveals that Intel’s future Arrow Lake CPU architecture could drop DDR4 support entirely in favor of DDR5. If true, Arrow Lake will be Intel’s first CPU platform to support DDR5 alone, just like AMD’s latest AM5 platform and Ryzen 7000 series CPUs. Arrow Lake is the codename... Read more...
ASRock has provided some updates regarding Intel’s upcoming 14th-Gen Raptor Lake Refresh CPU lineup, including motherboard support for the new chips and new memory performance upgrades on the platform. The motherboard manufacturer has confirmed that its Intel 600 and 700 series chipset motherboards will support... Read more...
It's all about timing when it comes to PC memory and we're not just talking about latency settings—when you pull the trigger on a new memory kit can make a big difference on the value proposition. Fortunately for consumers, DDR5 and DDR4 memory pricing is still on a downward swing, though it's no longer free falling... Read more...
Confession time: I'm absolutely terrible (or lazy?) at dusting my dwelling as much or as often I should. So, going with a white-themed PC isn't really on my radar. That said, I'm also absolutely envious of anyone who can pull it off (will you come clean my place?), and to make it easier, G.Skill is introducing fast... Read more...
It didn't take long for Samsung to go from announcing the development of the industry's first 16-gigabit (Gb) DDR5 memory chips built on a 12-nanometer class manufacturing process, which it achieved in December, to now mass producing the advanced DRAM parts. In doing so, Samsung puts us one big step closer to faster... Read more...
Neo Semiconductor has announced the world’s first 3D stackable DRAM technology, called 3D X-DRAM, that could revolutionize the memory industry as we know it today. Neo estimates that its 3D X-DRAM tech can achieve 128Gb density which is 8 times greater compared to today’s best solutions with DDR5 technology. 3D... Read more...
If the only thing holding you back from building a new Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake or AMD Ryzen 7000 series PC is the cost of DDR5 memory, you're in luck. Pricing on DDR5 modules has fallen precipitously since the launch of Alder Lake, which is when DDR5 first stuck its foot through the mainstream doorway, and further... Read more...
ASUS has released a new series of BIOS updates that support the latest high-capacity 24GB and 48GB DDR5 memory modules on select ASUS AM5 motherboards. These BIOS updates are available as test revisions for users to try out early from resident overclocker Shamino on the ROG forums. As a result, these BIOS updates are... Read more...
A new report confirms that MSI will be discontinuing the production of several DDR4-based Z790 and B760 motherboards in the future. Affected SKUs include the MPG Z790 Edge WiFi DDR4, Pro Z790-A WiFi DDR4, Pro Z790-P DDR4, and the DDR4 series of B760 Mortar motherboards. The reasoning for the discontinuations is... Read more...
If you talk to Intel, the company will tell you its roadmap remains on track to launch Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake this year and next, followed by Lunar Lake, an all-new and ultra-low power architecture built specifically for mobile. Unofficially, however, there have been rumors pointing to Meteor Lake skipping the... Read more...
ASUS has shared a sneak peek of 48GB DDR5 modules operating at a functional state on one of its AM5 motherboards featuring an unknown AGESA microcode update. The test setup used included a Ryzen 9 7950X and four 48GB DIMMs installed onto a ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming WiFi motherboard, making up a grand total of 192GB of... Read more...
Until very recently, DDR5 DIMMs came in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities—at least as long as we're talking about the kind of unbuffered memory you'll find in most non-server PCs. You may have heard that larger 24GB and 48GB capacities are now available, but what you may not have realized is that those unusually-sized... Read more...
Can you ever have too much system memory? Not if you're a Chrome user! Kidding (sort of) aside, bigger DDR5 memory modules are coming from Corsair. We know this because multiple retailers have put up listings for Corsair Vengeance DDR5 memory kits consisting of dual 24GB and 48GB modules, at speeds up to DDR5-5600... Read more...
MSI has announced that its MEG, MPG, MAG, and PRO Series Intel motherboards with DDR5 slots can support 24GB and 48GB memory modules. No BIOS updates are necessary for this expanded memory support, says MSI. It will enable systems with up to 96GB of system RAM (2-slots), or 192GB (4-slot motherboards). This should... Read more...
Gigabyte and its in-house overclocker, HiCookie, just set a new world record for the fastest DDR5 memory speed ever achieved. The official record to beat, as recognized by a validated HWBOT listing, now stands at 11,135MT/s, or 11,135MHz if you prefer the more common albeit technically incorrect way of listing the...

Hot on the heels of Intel formally unveiling its 4th Gen Xeon Scalable processors (otherwise known as Sapphire Rapids), SK hynix is pounding its chest over having obtained the industry's first validation for '1anm' DDR5 DRAM on Intel's latest server platform. From SK hynix's vantage point, this is a "monumental"... Read more...
We keep hearing about faster DDR5 memory kits eventually coming to market, which would have the dual benefit of offering better performance for those want to pay extra, and driving down the cost of mainstream RAM. It's largely a waiting game at this point. To speed things along, Teamgroup today announced a controller... Read more...
A brand new year is officially upon us (2023!) and as we reflect back on the preceding months, one reason to be optimistic is the continued decline of DDR5 memory prices. The situation now is far and way more palatable than it was when DDR5 first hit the scene, with a new report detailing a massive drop in DRAM spot... Read more...
Make no mistake, there will come a time when DDR5-10000 memory kits will enter the mainstream market. We're not quite there yet at this still-early stage, but memory makers are fast approaching that threshold. Case in point, GeIL is getting a jump on the Consumer Electronics Show by unveiling "ultra-speed" DDR5-8000... Read more...
For some users, one of the roadblocks of building a PC around the latest generation platforms from AMD or Intel is the comparatively high cost of DDR5 memory (which is optional but preferred with Raptor Lake, and required for Zen 4). Well, that could soon change. Samsung is touting the development of the industry's... Read more...
G.Skill can officially lay claim to offering the world's fastest DDR5 memory at retail. Well, sort of—G.Skill announced today that its ultra-high frequency DDR5-8000 memory has released to retail starting with a pair of listings on Newegg, though at the time of this writing, both kits that are up for offer are showing...

One of the biggest pain points of building a new PC around the latest generation hardware from AMD and Intel is buying DDR5 memory. Sure, you can get away with DDR4 RAM on Raptor Lake, but DDR5 is preferred and is outright required for Zen 4. The good news is pricing on DDR5 has been steadily declining. Even better, a...
