Patriot Reveals Signature DDR5 Memory Series

PATRIOT, a global leader in performance memory, SSDs, gaming peripherals, and flash storage solutions, today is proud to announce their first DDR5 high-performance memory will be available in the market in November 2021. The Signature DDR5 memory is approximately 75% faster performance over similar high-end and overclocked DDR4 memory right out of the gate. The memory kit provides high-speed frequencies up to 4800 MHz, with future versions ranging up to 8400 MHz. The single modules are available in various capacities, from 8 GB to 64 GB, and the perfect choice for system integrators and those looking to expand their DDR5 system memory.

"We've been working jointly with motherboard makers to ensure our DDR5 memory product line has excellent stability and compatibility with INTEL's latest ALDER LAKE desktop processor and Z690 platforms," said Roger Shinmoto, the VP of PATRIOT Memory. PATRIOT Signature DDR5 memory is designed to deliver a significant performance improvement. Only requiring 1.1 V of power, Signature DDR5 offers lower power consumption and produces less heat despite the higher frequency of 4800 MHz. Further power improvements include an onboard Power Management IC (PMIC), which provides better control of local voltage regulation while offering increased threshold protection, simultaneous monitoring, INTELligent voltage, and power management supporting increased voltage tweaking and more comprehensive adjustment ranges.
Each Signature DDR5 module has onboard thermal sensors to monitor and protect against thermal issues and better overall reporting.

Build quality and stability are critical features to successful DRAM memory; An 8-layer black PCB is used on the PATRIOT Signature DDR5 memory for substantial signal integrity. In addition, the latest on-die ECC (Error-Correcting Code) further enhances the accuracy of the data processing and overall system stability. As a result, the PATRIOT Signature DDR5 memory promises to be a wise choice for system integrators and anyone looking to expand their DDR5 system memory, offering a wide range of capacities and configurations, allowing users to get the most from the new ALDER LAKE and Z690 platforms.

The PATRIOT Signature DDR5 memory is backed by a PATRIOT's limited lifetime warranty and will be available in major retailers worldwide in November 2021.

Features
  • Lower power consumption, only requiring 1.1 V power input.
  • High-quality power management IC onboard to ensure stable power transfer at high efficiency.
  • Onboard temperature sensors monitor and protect from overheating.
  • On-die ECC error checking capability to provide accurate data processing.
  • Future module capacities up to 256 GB per single stick.

y/A/w/N....

other than the brand (and the absence of heat spreaders & rbg circus), how is this ram any different from all the other 4,286.97 DDR5 modules already announced by other mfgr's ??

Perhaps they didn't post a price cause Patriot is planning to undercut everyone else & steal some serious market share right of the gate, oh that would be supa sweeeet :)

4 chips single sided mdule spells trouble.

In a commodity market, a lot of press releases mainly serve the purpose of saying "Hey, look, we exist as well."

Yeah 1,1V, mine runs at 1,675V and where is the difference in a PC. (it make sense in a Tablet or Notebook)

.... all DDR5 runs at 1,1V. It's the base specification. OC DIMMS will run higher. Yours is DDR3, and likely an OC variant. It's not like they're putting aside performance in order to save power here - the low voltage is due to the design of DDR5 itself and the production processes involved. When they get around to releasing the DDR5-8400 spec that will also likely be at 1,1V.

Oh no :(

4 chips in a single side configuration means up to 20% performance lose, this is not a good sign, i dont like to see this spread into a norm, single channle dimms being everywhere since early 2020 is already bad enough

Single Channel in Notebooks is since 8 years standard by many OEM and since 4 - 5 years its standard to solder them even with Dual Channel.


A funny Content for that:
My FX 7800p (Mobile Carizzo) is in Games faster than my 2500u, how does this work?
Very easy my Carrizo have 2 Slots for DRAM (16GB 1866) but the 2500u have soldered 8GB (2666).


An example:
Windows use 2,8 GB
Game X use 4,5 GB
Now u have only 800MB from the RAM for the IGP

Before u reach this limit Windows start to write in the virtual ram on ure SSD :nutkick:

In real by a Game in 720p it looks like this:
FX 7600p 34 FPS (no Problem to switch with ALT TAB)
2500u 25 FPS and massive stuttering (switch from Game to Desktop ends in a long Loading Time)

You seem to be conflating several factors here:
Single v dual channel memory
Soldered v upgradeable memory
The amount of memory needed for a workload v total memory

There is no deterministic relation between either of these. Soldered memory can be single or dual channel and in any capacity the OEM desires. Slotted memory can be single channel (even with multiple slots!) and be limited in peak capacity by BIOS or the memory controller. And the amount of memory for any workload (including any set aside for VRAM) isn't related to those two, but only whether sufficient memory exists or not. You seem to have an interesting mix of good and bad implementations, but many different combinations exist. And none of this has a direct relation to DDR5 or the number of modules on a DIMM. iGPU FPS is mainly dependent on bandwidth, though of course you need sufficient RAM for the workload to run at all. Alt-tabbing is down to total ram, and bandwidth doesn't really matter. And whether or not the RAM is soldered is irrelevant as long as the PC is running - you're not upgrading on the fly, after all. You either have enough RAM or not.


Now, we can absolutely discuss how many OEMs cripple their designs by cheaping out on single channel memory, or the detrimental effects of non-upgradeable hardware vs. the performance benefits of higher bandwidth soldered memory like LPDDR4X or LPDDR5. But neither of those really relate to this topic or the video posted above.

The idea is to have only one bank group per chip, otherwise there is latency added.

So like every other memory. Dual bank DDR4 couldnt clock as high as single bank, hence the rush to get good samsung B die.
