Memory vendor TeamGroup will release its first DDR5 RAM modules in Q3 2021.

On Tuesday, the company introduced the upcoming technology, which is designed to succeed the DDR4 RAM found in the latest PCs. TeamGroup is cooking up a 16GB module through its Elite line that can support speeds from 4800 to 5200MHz. 

That’s up to 60 percent faster when compared to a standard 3200MHz DDR4 RAM module. At the same time, the new memory can run at 1.1 volts—compared to 1.2 volts on DDR4.

According to TeamGroup, the new DDR5 RAM should also run with fewer errors. “Today’s DDR4 memory with error correction code (ECC) requires an additional chip installed on the PCB, whereas DDR5 supports on-die ECC, a feature that self-corrects single-bit errors, greatly improving system stability,” the company said in today’s announcement. 

The news follows South Korean manufacturer SK Hynix’s efforts to commercialize DDR5 RAM. In October, the company announced the world’s first 64GB DDR5 memory module, which can support speeds from 4800 to 5600MHz. According to The Verge, SK Hynix plans on selling the first DDR5 RAM modules also during next year’s third quarter. 

As a result, 2021 is poised to become the first year when DDR5 begins entering the market. However, the new RAM will likely first be sold to data centers utilized for research and AI computing before the technology reaches consumers. Research firm TrendForce is predicting 2022 will be the year when DDR5 starts to go mainstream as AMD, Intel, and motherboard makers begin integrating it into products. In the meantime, consumers can buy DDR4 memory modules that’ve been overclocked to 4800MHz, but expect them to cost over $450.
