A document leak has revealed more performance numbers for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 7800X3D. But this time the leak comes from MSI, revealing benchmark results of the CPU with MSI's home-grown Enhanced Mode Boost 3 and MSI's High-Efficiency modes turned on. These modes are MSI-exclusive and boost the 7800X3D’s power... Read more...
Memory bandwidth isn't that big of a deal on desktop platforms. Client tasks like office work, web browsing, and even computer games are usually much more sensitive to memory latency than memory performance, which is why AMD sees such huge gains in gaming from its 3D V-Cache technology. Server and HPC tasks can be... 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...
The latest Halo Infinite update has unexpectedly disabled 3GB GPU support from the game's system requirements. Gamers running 3GB GPUs, such as the infamous GTX 1060 3GB can no longer run the game and will be greeted by an error screen explaining the issue. 343 Industries seemingly did not announce the GPU requirement...

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...
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...
A report emanating from a Chinese tech news source asserts that the next generation of NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards are “expected” to come packing GDDR7 memory. It is also claimed that the next-gen NVIDIA lineup, unsurprisingly referenced as the RTX 50 series by the source, will be the first graphics cards featuring... Read more...
The race to deliver increasingly high-speed 24GB and 48GB memory kits is heating up. Crucial got the party started by being the first to deliver 24GB and 48GB DDR5 kits in January, followed by Corsair unveiling 24GB and 48GB Vengeance DDR5-5600 memory options last month. More recently Corsair upped the ante with... 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...
There are some quite convincing signs that NVIDIA and partners are going to release the GeForce RTX 4070 in as many as three memory configurations. Tech site VideoCardz probed what appears to be the Thailand-based Aorus game registration site, and noted that qualifying bundle products include the following... 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...
There are many examples of why buyers should beware if they are considering perusing the used market for graphics cards. However, sellers of used, and possibly abused, old graphics cards have hit upon a new technique to deceive GPU hungry folk—painting memory chips to make them look factory fresh. After prolonged...

SK hynix finds itself in a braggadocios mood after developing what the memory maker claims is the fastest mobile DRAM solution on the planet. That in an of itself is noteworthy, but in case anyone might overlook the achievement, SK hynix has decided to add a "T" to its LPDDR5 product (LPDDR5T) to signify it's a... 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...

The next time you purchase a laptop, gaming or otherwise, you might be surprised to discover that it's rocking a different type of memory module than you're used to seeing. While the majority of laptops up to this point have employed traditional SO-DIMM (Small Outline Dual In-Line Memory Module) sticks, Dell's CAMM... Read more...
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...
