ADATA Technology, a manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, mobile accessories, gaming products, electric power trains, and industrial solutions today announces the ADATA DDR5-4800, a next-generation DDR5 memory module that is capable of reaching frequencies of up to 4800MT/s and comes with up to 32 GB of capacity. In addition, ADATA has worked with six major motherboard brands, including AORUS, ASROCK, ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI and ROG to ensure optimal performance and compatibility across a wide range of motherboards.

"Through our strong R&D capabilities and close partnerships with the world's leading motherboard makers, we are committed to offering memory modules with next-generation performance, higher capacities, and enhanced stability," said Nick Dai, Senior Manager of DRAM Products at ADATA. "In the coming months, we will continue to launch a diverse array of DDR5 products to meet the different needs of creators, gamers, and other users."

An Upgrade in Speed, Capacity, and Stability
In view of more processor cores being used and greatly increased bandwidth in recent years, higher performance memory modules are crucial to staying up to speed in the era of 5G, IoT, and WiFi 6. Compared with previous-generation memory modules, DDR5 allows each CPU core to be allocated more bandwidth, greatly improving overall PC performance. The ADATA DDR5-4800 clocks in at up to 4800 MHz and come in either 8 GB, 16 GB, or 32 GB variants for excellent performance and ample capacity. It also sports Error Correcting Code technology and a built-in Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC) for accurate data transmissions and improved energy efficiency.

Ensuring Optimal Performance and Compatibility through Collaboration
The INTEL 12th generation platform will soon welcome the use of DDR5 memory modules by the end of October, and ADATA has conducted joint testing with motherboard brands AORUS, ASROCK, ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI and ROG to ensure compatibility and optimal performance. The DDR5-4800 memory module will be offered in a single stick of 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB capacities or a dual kit of 8GBx2, 16 GB x2, and 32 GB x2 capacities. SO-DIMM variants will be available by fourth quarter of this year to meet the needs of laptop users.

The Utmost Quality and Reliability
The ADATA DDR5-4800 memory module is made from high-quality chips, has undergone strict testing, and complies with JEDEC and RoHS standards for the utmost in quality and reliability. For added peace of mind, the module comes with a lifetime warranty.

No dumbass heatspreaders?

Heatspreaders are not stupid for higher clocked RAM you know. You can have DDR4 without heat spreaders so long as you like 2666 or lower.

Probably because it not required because it runs cool, but I've just looked into my crystal ball, Pro Overclockers will somehow bypass onboard regulation to gain more performance.
JDEC spec DDR4 doesnt have it either. The 3200+ MHz DDR4 kits do use it for cooling reasons. DDR4 overclockers have found DDR4 more sensitive to temperature then DDR3. DDR5 wil likely continue that trend.

Time to break out my old DDR Booster.

Just kidding, but I can see resistor/shunt mods happening basically on day one.
