Xpg showcases ddr5 memory modules
The wait for DDR5 modules is almost over, and many high-end manufacturers have finally begun to reveal what they have been doing in recent years. The latest to debut is ADATA’s gaming division XPG. The
gaming department recently demonstrated its next-generation DDR5 memory module, which will become part of its high-end "Caster" series. Like other DDR5 products, the "Caster" series will be launched sometime in the third quarter of 2021.
From an aesthetic point of view, the "Caster" series looks relatively similar to Spectrix memory modules that have been around for a long time. Some years. However, although there is not much difference in surface area, the internal operation of the two generations is certainly not the case. The latest
memory module will be equipped with a new DDR5 DRAM IC, which can achieve more than twice the transmission speed and higher bandwidth.
When looking at the physical specifications of XPG DDR5 memory, users can expect 8GB, 16GB and 32GB modules, all of which have speeds between 6000MHz and 7400MHz. Compared with JEDEC's native 4800MHz speed, this is a huge leap, and much faster than TeamGroup's latest product.
Although there is no official statement on the speed increase of XPG DDR5 memory modules, we can only speculate that the reason lies in the target group: gamers. Although the other modules we mentioned are designed for general consumers, the opposite is true for XPG products.
The company has worked closely with major motherboard partners, such as ASUS, ASRock, Gigabyte and MSI, to ensure that there will be no compatibility issues at the release date (third quarter of 2021). As can be seen from the above figure, the design of the new RAM kit will be in matte black and matte gray two tones styles. XPG will provide RGB and non-RGB versions of RAM, the former will sell more (probably). XPG means that the voltage will remain at 1.1V, which is implemented by the PMIC (Power Management IC) chip, which helps determine the power in the memory.
