Desktop memory is about to take a major leap forward in the industry with Samsung and SK Hynix competing to introduce new DDR5 products. Even though this standard is considered under development by Jedec standards organisation, both the competitors have unveiled their plans for DDR5 memory.

DDR5 RAM

A 16Gb DDR5 SDRAM was showcased by SK Hynix which is capable of running at 6.5Gbps on each pin while operating at 1.1 V. The module measures 76.22 square millimeters and is made with a 1y-nm process. But Samsung’s 10nm LPDDR5 SDRAM draws only 1.05 V while offering speeds upto 7.5Gbps, which is simultaneously more efficient and powerful than the former.

For consumers, this means up to 50% more bandwidth while drawing less power and offering better performance. According to Hynix’s predictions, DDR5 memory should make up 25% of the market by 2021 and reach 44% by 2022.

I've damaged way too many processors than I'd like to admit. Music and Sim Racing keep me sane; that is until I get a strange itch to tinker with stuff again.
