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...
In the early going, there is a single chipset available for Alder Lake—Z690, which happens to be Intel's flagship offering. That's not surprising, as chip makers like to put their best feet forward when launching generational products. However, more mainstream chipsets are on the horizon and a fresh leak purports to...

If you are looking to build a PC around one of Intel's newfangled Alder Lake CPUs, it's Z690 or bust, as far as the motherboard platform goes. The vast majority of Z690 motherboards that are out so far cost north of $200 (some are far north). That's not unexpected given that Z690 is a top-tier chipset, though if... 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...
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...
Acer will waste no time injecting Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs into its desktop line, starting with its newly unveiled Predator Orion 7000 series PC. Built for high-end gaming, the latest addition to the Predator PC line pairs unlocked and overclockable Alder Lake processors with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090... Read more...
Samsung says it has begun mass producing what it claims is the industry's smallest DRAM based on extreme ultraviolet (EUV) technology, on a 14-nanometer process. It had already begun shipping the first EUV DRAM earlier this year (back in March), and what it's kicking into high gear now represents an increase in the... Read more...
The first retail listing for a DDR5 memory kit with RGB lighting has popped up, and in doing so, we have an idea of where preliminary pricing will land. That's the good news. The bad news? It looks like DDR5 memory is not going to be cheap. That is to be expected to some extent when new technology emerges, and on the... Read more...
Next-generation DDR5 memory is not even out in earnest yet for consumers, but that has not stopped Adata from pursuing overclocking records...with its own RAM, of course. Adata has taken one of its 16GB DDR5 memory kits that is rated to run at 4,800 MT/s, and overclocked it to 8,118 MT/s. Not too shabby, eh? The... Read more...
Back in May, Samsung unveiled a high-tech gadget for data centers called the CXL Memory Expander, essentially a memory expansion device that utilizes the newer Compute Express Link interconnect standard. As with most hardware, however, the clever device is only as good as the software. To address that fact, Samsung... Read more...
When Joe Gamer is building a PC, he probably doesn't even look at qualified parts lists, like memory QVLs. Products made to a given standard typically "just work," at least to a good-enough degree for general use, and don't need to be individually validated. Things are different in the business world, though. There... Read more...
The big event where we expect Intel to announce its 12th generation Alder Lake processor family is just three weeks away. Lenovo has already spilled the beans on its Legion 9000K gaming desktop PC in the lead-up to the launch, while pricing from numerous ASUS motherboards has leaked. The latest company to jump on the...

Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake processors are right around the corner, with an official announcement coming as soon as October 27th. However, in the lead-up to the launch, most of the leaks and news have surrounded the Alder Lake-S desktop family rather than the related laptop-centric processors. Thankfully, today... Read more...
In preparation for the arrival of Intel's upcoming Alder Lake CPUs and Z690 platform, TeamGroup is highlighting a couple of new DDR5 memory products, the T-Force Vulcan and T-Force Delta RGB. They are part of a larger online launch event, in which TeamGroup is unveiling a spate of products, including internal and... Read more...
You can safely assume that motherboard makers will not be caught flat-footed when Intel's 12th Gen Core desktop processors based on Alder Lake arrive. There's plenty of work that goes on behind the scenes between CPU and motherboard players. Especially so with Alder Lake, I imagine, given all the new technologies. So... Read more...
Some potentially exciting platform upgrades are on the horizon, two of them coming by way of Alder Lake and its accompanying Z690 series chipset. Namely, support for the PCI Express 5.0 bus, which doubles the bandwidth compared to PCI Express 4.0, and DDR5 memory. Will either matter? We can only wait and see, but as... Read more...
For all of the leaks and rumors related to Intel's upcoming Alder Lake launch, actual CPU product photos have been very few and far between. So it is notable that the an Alder Lake CPU has smiled for the camera, giving us a mostly clear view of the bottom (it's not a high resolution image, but it is at least mostly... Read more...
