Corsair provides a first look at its DDR5 memory
Another brand shows off its new DDR5 memory kit.
Corsair provided a first look at its Vengeance DDR5 memory. The company did not reveal anything specifications of the new series though, such as frequencies or overclocking options, but this information should become available once we get closer to the Intel Alder Lake-S launch, the first desktop series to support this new memory standard. According to JEDEC specifications, the DDR5 memory starts at 4800 MT/s and 1.1V. The overclocking potential will depend on many factors, such as binning or integrated PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit) as suggested by MSI overclocker Toppc.
