CAMM2 is coming to desktop, and MSI are leading the charge!

MSI and Kingston are ready to showcase the power of CAMM2 memory at Computex 2024

Last year, JEDEC ratified the CAMM2 memory standard, and MSI appears to be the first motherboard maker to bring the new memory type to desktop motherboards.

At Computex 2024, Kingston Technology and MSI plans to showcase the benefits of this new technology. To do this, they will be using prototype Kingston Fury Impact DDR5 memory modules and an MSI Project Zero PLUS Z790 motherboard. There, MSI will be showcasing the performance of this new memory standard and its overclocking potential.

MSI and Kingston Technology are previewing the next big revolution in memory design, the DDR5 CAMM2 (Compression Attached Memory Module). Featured on a Z790 PROJECT ZERO PLUS, the Kingston FURY Impact DDR5 CAMM2 prototype module demonstrates the compact size, thin profile, and potential overclock performance of this new standard form factor. Be the first to experience DDR5 CAMM2 memory at #MSIxComputex2024!

CAMM2 presents some interesting opportunities to the desktop memory market. Given their low profile nature, they do not interfere with CPU cooling solutions. Beyond that their wider base could enable the creation of interesting new DRAM cooling solutions. CAMM2 modules can also be installed closer to processors, potentially enabling higher data rates and reduced memory latencies.

Personally, I am looking forward to hearing about what CAMM2 can bring to the desktop PC market. Standard DRAM DIMMs have been commonplace for decades, so it will be interesting to see if this new memory form factor can deliver any benefits to users.

You can join the discussion on MSI using CAMM2 on a desktop motherboard on the OC3D Forums.
