Neo Forza Details its DDR5 Memory Rollout Plan

PC enthusiast memory and storage brand Neo Forza, detailed its plans to roll out DDR5 memory for desktop PCs. It also sheds light on some of the possible combinations of memory speed and density under development. Q4 2021 is when the company's first DDR5 memory modules will debut. These will be basic, bare-PCB modules with specs and speeds closest to JEDEC's. The company will start out with DDR5-4800 MHz modules, with densities of 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB. The starting CAS latency on these things appears to be 40T. From what we gather, 16 GB will be the new single-rank standard memory size, 8 GB single-rank will be a low-cost option; while 32 GB could be commonly dual-rank, rarely single-. These modules will likely be co-branded with authorized DRAM IC providers.

Vanilla DDR5-4800 modules are only the beginning. Neo Forza plans to develop gaming-grade memory modules, complete with chunky heatspreaders, RGB LED illumination, and more importantly, higher clock speeds. The company expects that as DDR5 matures as a standard, speeds of DDR5-6400, DDR5-7200, and DDR5-8600, will become common for the enthusiast segment. The higher frequency modules will likely be 16 GB single-rank. As densities ramp up, 64 GB dual-rank modules will be possible, and Neo Forza expects to ship 128 GB (2x 64 GB) dual-channel kits, or scale out to 4-channel thru 8-channel HEDT platforms.

They're one of a bunch of tech companies in the same area.
Right next door is A-data, EVGA, Supermicro, Patriot, Team Group, GeIL, Albatron, Askey, TechNexion, Zaward and a bunch of others.

Why not after jump over 12.6GT/s :)

Yeah. I won't be nitpicking about 2.6GT/s

So, nothing close to Samsung or Micron?

No, they're just another nobody rebadger manufacturer. Think of Gskill.

A little off but interesting to learn how "its" is enough to be its:

The truth about memory manufacturers

There are multiple memory companies on the market, but only a few true memory manufacturing companies. When researching different memory brands, you may run across companies that claim to be memory manufacturers, when they're really just module assemblers. How these companies work is that they purchase pre-manufactured parts (such as DRAM chips and printed circuit board) from true memory manufacturers, and then assemble these components to “manufacture” a module with their label on it.
True memory manufacturing involves a much higher level of technical expertise and quality control, and involves everything from selecting choice silicone to functional module testing. True memory manufacturers design, produce, and test components and modules at all stages of production.
