A popular source for leaked information, momomo_us on Twitter has dropped a screengrab of Intel’s Alder Lake-S processor sporting DDR5, running SiSoftware’s SANDRA. While DDR5 is nearly upon us, it will be interesting to see the new chipsets that come along with these new processors from Intel and AMD in the next year. The other “fun” part will certainly be the price premium these new processors, motherboards and DDR5 modules will pull. It’s no secret we’re already dealing with mass shortages and ridiculous prices. Time will tell how this plays out. Until then, here are the scores.
DDR5 is slated for a 2021 release, and TeamGroup is working around the clock to be one of the first vendors to push out their products. The memory manufacturer has already started the validation phase with the top motherboard companies in the industry, including Asus, MSI, ASRock and Gigabyte.
Just to start things off, TeamGroup plans to release its first wave of DDR5 memory modules with a capacity of 16GB. The memory modules are rated for DDR5-4800 and only require a 1.1V DRAM voltage to operate. The specifications are not final, of course, but that’s what TeamGroup expects to put out.

SK hynix Inc. (or ‘the Company,’ www.skhynix.com) announced to launch world’s first DDR5 DRAM. It is a high-speed and high-density product optimized for Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) as a next generation standard of DRAM.
Since SK hynix announced the development of World’s First 16 Gigabit (Gb) DDR5 DRAM on November 2018, the Company has provided its major partners including Intel with sample products, and has completed various tests and verification of its functions and compatibility. This will allow SK hynix to provide its customers with the products once the DDR5 market becomes active.

Today we posted a news article about SK hynix’s new DDR5 memory modules for customers – 64 GB registered modules running at DDR5-4800, aimed at the preview systems that the big hyperscalers start playing with 12-18 months before anyone else gets access to them. It is interesting to note that SK Hynix did not publish any sub-timing information about these modules, and as we look through the announcements made by the major memory manufacturers, one common theme has been a lack of detail about sub-timings.
