DDR5-4800 chips have speeds between 4,800 to 5,600Mbps while consuming less power than DDR4

Korean chipmaker SK Hynix introduced the first 64GB DDR5 RAM module, marking a big step compared to DDR4 DIMMs which have dominated computer memory since 2013. DDR5-4800 chips have speeds between 4,800 to 5,600Mbps while consuming less power than DDR4. The technology also makes possible 256GB modules available in size.

The JEDEC standard of DDR5 RAM was officially introduced in July but SK Hynix has unveiled the first chip in 2018 with this memory. In addition to capacity, DDR5 will have two 32-bit channels instead of 64-bit making it easier to increase the bandwidth. It is the modules themselves that regulate the voltage and not the board with DDR5 allowing the memory output to control its frequency. SK Hynix also tested the modules at 6,400 Mbps and 8,400 Mbps.

By 2022 DDR5 memory will occupy only 10% of sales and by 2024 it will go to 43%. When this moment comes it will be the de facto the memory used on all new computers.
