PNY Announces XLR8 DDR5 4800 MHz Desktop Memory

PNY announced today the latest addition to their extensive lineup of PC memory for computer upgrades as well as for enthusiasts and gamers; Performance DDR5 4800 MHz Desktop Memory. Designed for next generation systems supporting the new memory standard, DDR5 will allow for higher-density modules and faster frequency speeds as compared to previous generation technologies.

PNY Performance DDR5 is designed to support the growing lineup of motherboards compatible with the new DDR5 memory standard. This advanced technology supports many new and exciting features that were limited or not supported in previous generations of PC memory. DDR5 supports higher density modules, up to four-times higher per module, and faster frequency speeds as standard. Compared to DDR4, which has a limited JEDEC standard speed of 3200 megahertz, DDR5 starts at 4800 MHz. The PNY Performance memory will also start at 16 GB per module and feature the JEDEC standard frequency of 4800 megahertz.
The DDR5 modules will operate at ultra-low 1.1 volts and feature on-die ECC support which increases efficiency. Existing DDR4 memory relies on the motherboard to handle voltage conversion, but DDR5 supports on-module conversion, resulting in lower voltage wear and less noise generation. Thanks to the on-module PMIC (Power Management IC), DDR5 also has higher amounts of headroom for overclocking support and voltage adjustments.

With the Intel Alder Lake CPU launching late 2021, Intel's CPUs will be the first to support the DDR5 standard, but with growing support from other CPU manufactures, DDR5 will likely overtake DDR4 in popularity by 2023.

Product Availability

PNY XLR8 Gaming DDR5 4800 MHz Desktop Memory will be available for compatibility testing with various motherboard manufacturers in the third quarter of 2021, and the company expects the modules to enter mass production in the fourth quarter of 2021.

@kayjay010101 My money is on CAS latency of 40-40-40, with 1.1 V operating voltage in line with the other companies.
