Earlier this week, Samsung touted its development of next-generation 512GB DDR5 modules rated for 7200 Mbps speeds. TeamGroup is grabbing some headlines of its own today with some announcements from its T-Force Gaming brand. According to TeamGroup, it has already validated its first standard DDR5 U-DIMM and SO-DIMM... Read more...
As we inch closer to Intel's Alder Lake and AMD's Zen 4 architectures (late this year and/or early next, barring any delays), memory makers have started announcing advances in DDR5 memory, which will deliver a big increase in bandwidth. We've even seen some DDR5 module launches. Samsung, however, has managed to... Read more...
We are all eager to see what kind of performance impact the adoption of DDR5 memory will bring to the table when it arrives on consumers platforms later this year. In anticipation of the DDR5 era beginning in earnest, a company called Longsys has provided some preliminary benchmarking figures for one of its DDR5... Read more...
AMD has not yet released its fourth generation EPYC "Milan" server processors based on its Zen 3 CPU architecture, but barring any last minute snags, those chips are coming any day now. Looking further down the road, a new leak highlights a possible fourth generation EPYC "Genoa" configuration based on Zen 4, with... Read more...
Sure, there are many PC users out there pining for a hard-to-find AMD Ryzen 5000 series desktop CPU to build a new system around, and on the mobile front, AMD's latest generation Zen 3 stack is brand new as well. But even so, the rumor mill remains in full swing regarding what sits further down the road. Specifically... Read more...
Intel is set to release its 12th generation Alder Lake processor architecture during the second half of 2021, so it should come as no surprise that benchmark leaks are starting to accelerate in frequency. This latest Alder Lake-S (desktop) processor prototype is interesting, as it continues the odd pairing of cores... Read more...
Almost all of the chatter centered on DDR5 memory so far has been in reference to full-size modules for future motherboard applications. That is all fine and dandy, especially with Intel set to release its Alder Lake-S lineup later this year, and AMD on track to deliver Zen 4 around the same time. But what about... Read more...
Earlier this month at CES 2021, Intel officially confirmed that its 12th generation Alder Lake CPU architecture will launch during the latter half of 2021. Intel says that Alder Lake will be the "most power-scalable system-on-chip” ever produced, and will be manufactured using the company's advanced 10nm SuperFin... Read more...
It has been a nice, long run for the DDR4 standard, and while it is not exactly coming to a complete end, DDR5 is poised to replace it in the not-too-distant future. On next-gen platforms, anyway. Incidentally, Adata has been collaborating with MSI and Gigabyte on its upcoming DDR5 memory modules, which will feature... Read more...
Earlier this month, TeamGroup boasted that its first 16GB DDR5-4800 modules would be rolling out in 2021. The company indicated that it would be coordinating the release of these blazing faster modules with next-generation CPU platforms from leading PC processor manufacturers AMD and Intel. In the lead-up to an... Read more...
The clock is ticking on DDR4, and TeamGroup is eager to adopt the next-gen DDR5 memory standard as quickly as possible. As such, the memory announced today that it will be releasing its first "Elite" branded DDR5 memory product in the second half of next year. In the process, TeamGroup may have also tipped what AMD...

Back in July, JEDEC finalized the specifications for DDR5 memory, and laid out a number of key performance advantages over DDR4 including quadrupling the maximum die density to 64Gb and boosting maximum data rates from 3.2Gbps to 6.4Gbps [official]. Today, SK Hynix has announced that it is launching the world's very... Read more...
Although it’s a few years behind schedule, the final specifications for DDR5 memory have been released. The JESD79-5 DDR5 SDRAM standard was originally supposed to be released two years ago (2018), but now, new hardware based on the standard is expected to arrive in 2021 (late 2020 if we’re lucky). There are a... Read more...
We are all waiting patiently for Intel to finally move on from its 14 nanometer node on the desktop, and that day may come when its 12th generation Core "Alder Lake" CPUs arrive. It may seem like we are getting a bit ahead of ourselves talking about Alder Lake—we still have Rocket Lake in the wings—but apparently... Read more...
It's about that time again in the desktop market to switch to a new memory standard. We first began the transition from DDR3 to DDR4 six years ago, and now memory suppliers are laying the groundwork for the leap from DDR4 to DDR5. So, what kind of advantages will DDR5 offer over its predecessor? Well, SK Hynix is... Read more...
Good news folks, the era of DDR5 memory is upon us, let's all celebrate! Well, sort of—you may want to buy the cheap champagne instead of the good stuff. Micron announced it is mass producing the world's first low power DDR5 DRAM (LPDDR5), which will find its way into high-end smartphones starting with Xiaomi's Mi... Read more...
A next generation Intel "Tiger Lake-U" processor submission for the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) suggests the upcoming CPU series will support both LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 memory when it arrives next year. Overall details are rather light, but according to the listing, the unidentified processor is a quad-core... Read more...
Rambus has stepped up and revealed some preliminary specifications for the DDR5 and HBM3 memory standards. HBM3 is the successor to HBM2 memory with DDR5 being the successor to DDR4, as if the names didn’t give that fact away. These specs are still in their early stages and could change ahead of the official launch of... Read more...
