Crucial is a global brand of Micron Technology, Inc., one of the largest memory and flash storage manufacturers in the world. The company's product lineup includes award-winning solid state drives (SSDs) and computer memory upgrades (DRAM) for more than 50,000 systems. These products have been qualified and approved by major original equipment manufacturers and every single module has been rigorously tested at the component and module level. Each SSD also undergoes over a thousand hours of prerelease validation testing and hundreds of qualification tests to ensure optimal reliability and performance.

With the launch of Intel's Raptor Lake and AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors, the need for high speed DDR5 memory is greater than ever. To meet this demand, Crucial recently introduced DDR5-5200 and 5600 memory for desktop and laptop computers. Available in 8, 16 and 32GB densities, the DDR5-5200 memory can transfer data up to 1.63x faster and deliver up to 1.97x more bandwidth than DDR4, resulting in shorter load times, file transfers, downloads, lag time and improved refresh rates. Crucial's DDR5-5600 memory is available in additional densities, including 24GB and 48GB, and offers faster bandwidth and data rates. Both memory types also support Intel XMP 3.0 and AMD EXPO and feature voltage regulation on the module through a power management integrated circuit (PMIC) for better power regulation and increased efficiency.

For this review, Crucial sent us 32GB (16GB x 2) of both the DDR5-5200 and 5600 desktop (UDIMM) memory. The specs are below:
