Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced it has sent overclockable DDR5 modules to its motherboard partners to begin qualification on the next-generation memory platform. Kingston engineered its DDR5 modules with a preset XMP profile, but also enabled our motherboard partners to manually adjust the power management integrated circuit (PMIC) beyond the 1.1V DDR5 spec, thus allowing maximum flexibility to overclock. Kingston expects to ship its DDR5 solutions in Q3.
Memory validation requires cooperation of the entire computing ecosystem, and Kingston has forged close ties with the leading motherboard manufacturers and chipset makers throughout its 33-year history. This step continues the critical process of bringing leading high-performance and overclockable memory solutions to market later this year.
For over three decades, Kingston has meticulously engineered and has 100% tested every cell on every chip on every module. The methodical testing combined with a lifetime warranty and unmatched customer service has made Kingston the largest third-party memory manufacturer in the world, with over 80% market share. Kingston has also been a longtime member of JEDEC, the governing entity for the microelectronics industry. For over a decade, Kingston has held a seat on the JEDEC board as well, helping set the standards for which all manufacturers follow.Add a comment

TEAMGROUP has worked vigorously on the development of next-generation DDR5 memory. After completing validation tests for standard DDR5 U-DIMM and SO-DIMM products with the collaboration of major motherboard manufacturers, TEAMGROUP is announcing an exciting breakthrough today: its T-FORCE brand has successfully created DDR5 overclocking memory. Samples were immediately sent to ASUS, ASRock, MSI, and GIGABYTE for collaborative testing of its overclocking capability. Consumers can expect TEAMGROUP’s products to be fully compatible with motherboards from the four major manufacturers when the DDR5 generation arrives.
The DDR5 overclocking memory has greater room for voltage adjustment, due to its upgraded power management IC. This PMIC can support high frequency overclocking with voltage over 2.6V. In previous generations, voltage conversion was controlled by the motherboard. With DDR5, components were moved to the memory, enabling the module to handle the voltage conversion, which not only reduces voltage wear but also reduces noise generation. This allows significantly increased room for overclocking compared to the past, and more powerful computing processing.Add a comment
Leading global memory brand TEAMGROUP continues to make its mark on the next generation of DDR5 memory. At the end of last year, the company announced that it had entered the validation phase with the collaboration of major motherboard manufacturers. In early 2021, it has made another breakthrough. Paying attention to the needs of not only desktop but also notebook and mini PC users, TEAMGROUP has successfully created DDR5 SO-DIMM and is expected to be the first to take Intel and AMD's new platform validation tests.
Specifications of the DDR5 SO-DIMM at the early stage of development resemble those of the U-DIMM version. A single module has a capacity of 16 GB and a frequency of 4800 MHz, and both versions run at the lowered voltage of 1.1 V. For notebooks that need to stay mobile for a long period of time, this can noticeably reduce power consumption and extend standby time. DDR5 SO-DIMM also supports on-die ECC, a feature that self-corrects single-bit errors, greatly improving system stability. Users can look forward to the convenience and peace of mind that DDR5 will bring to notebooks, mini PCs, NAS, and more.Add a comment
