Netac Confirms its DDR5 Memory has Completed Testing
With Intel’s Alder Lake-S platform coming out around September / October this year, while we are all clearly expecting to see big things in terms of their new (and theoretically significantly improved) processor platform, one of the biggest events will undoubtedly be that it will be the first official adoption of the DDR5 memory platform. As such, it’s not exactly surprising to learn that manufacturers are just a little more busy to ensure that when Lake Alder-S lands, there are plenty of options to choose from.
Well, following a report by Chinese manufacturer Videocardz, Netac, which is definitely positive news in this regard, confirmed that their series-produced DDR5 RAMs have just completed their testing phase!
Netac confirms completion of DDR5 testing!
Even though Micron reportedly only shipped the chipsets to Netac less than a month ago, they appear to have been exceptionally busy mass-producing their supposedly first DDR5 memory. It was finally confirmed that this process had begun. However, we have officially taken a significant step closer in the testing phase to definitely bringing the latest and significantly faster memory platform (offering a standard speed of about 4800 MHz) to consumer computers.
Double data revolution
Although there is currently no date for when these memory modules will be on our computers, Netac has confirmed the completion of the evaluation phase, indicating that the process went smoothly and the DDR5 memory modules booted smoothly into the operating system.
DDR5 SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) is likely to be positioned as a new standard for high-end computers, especially as the specifications are supported by Intel’s soon-to-be-released 12th generation Core processors as well as AMD’s next-generation technology.
The 16GB of RAM in the DDR5 will be more than enough to support upcoming high-end processors and GPUs, and if it’s available on a luminous fast DIMM (or wand as it’s commonly called), users will be free up slots to PC to expand on them. ambitious, for example, if they want to start a production hobby where faster memory is essential.
As the demand for PC games and programs grows year by year, memory requirements are as essential to construction as processors and GPUs, enabling the efficient performance required by current-generation hardware and software.
While 32GB DIMMs may seem overwhelming for gaming PCs (which comfortably fit a total of 16GB of RAM), they are ideal for more professional workstation builds such as graphics design and CGI display where they are more demanding. 64 GB or 128 GB requirements are created.
What do we think?
Undoubtedly, the transition to DDR5 memory is long overdue, with DDR4 insisting for much longer than anyone would have expected. However, if you’re a little worried about whether you might fall behind (assuming you don’t intend to switch to Lake Alder-S), don’t. “While Alder Lake-S will undoubtedly bring a lot of exciting innovations, we don’t expect anything to be cheap. Moreover, given that AMD is not expected to move DDR5 until late 2022 (and possibly early 2023), it will clearly take several years for this new memory platform to become the new market standard.
You can’t deny it, though with the speed performance on offer, the DDR5 seems like an exceptionally delicious offer!
