Computex 2021: TeamGroup Announces its First DDR5-4800 Memory Module

Back again in December 2020, TeamGroup announced its intentions for the swap to DDR5 memory on long term platforms. During Computex 2021, TeamGroup promises it has ‘successfully taken the direct more than competing PCB manufacturers’, with the first of its announced products for DDR5, the Elite DDR5-4800 16 GB module. Back again at CES 2021, ADATA claimed that it has a DDR5 module in hand, but it sent us rendered visuals. We in the long run disapprove of this apply – will not point out you have it in hand until you are prepared to present us actaul photographs of the issue. Unfortunately, TeamGroup has performed the exact here, furnishing renders. not pictures.

The Street to DDR5

About the last calendar year, we have highlighted specific elements of DDR5 memory and what buyers can expect, which includes functions, memory latency, and technological advancements over the existing DDR4 memory. Some of which can be observed beneath:

TeamGroup’s announcement hasn’t come as a shock supplied how very long DDR5 has been speculated and talked over about the very last 12 months. Just one of the very first platforms to supposedly feature DDR5 support is Intel’s Alder Lake microarchitecture, which is expected to land in This fall 2021/Q1 2022. The initially collection of DDR5 from TeamGroup will be primarily based on its ‘Elite’ memory series, with the initially package to feature speeds of 4800 MT/s, sub-timings of CL40-40-40-seventy seven, and will characteristic an operating voltage of one.1 V.

A single of the major characteristics of DDR5 is built-in on-die ECC, which is built to improve total system steadiness (but is basically more to do with generate). This is different to module-huge ECC, which DDR5 does not aid by default (you continue to need to have a module-vast ECC module to assistance ECC technologies). The facts furnished by TeamGroup say the Elite DDR5-4800 has double the banks when compared to DDR4, with an all-black PCB. It is unclear whether or not or not the Elite DDR5-4800 will feature heatsinks, or they will run with a bare PCB. We also know that it will aspect 16 GB of ability and will most likely be marketed as a twin-channel kit, and maybe independently.

At current, there is certainly no information on latency timings or how considerably the Elite DDR5-4800 16 GB module will expense, but TeamGroup does point out that it will be unveiling its ‘new generation’ of items in September 2021.
