Kingston's Overclockable DDR5 Memory Modules are "One Step Closer to Reaching Market"

The DDR5 era will soon be upon us, promising to deliver to consumers higher memory frequencies, increased power efficiency and a wide range of other improvements. Kingston, one of the world's largest DRAM third-party DRAM manufacturer, has confirmed that they will be shipping DDR5 memory modules in Q3 2021, in time for Intel's planned 12th Generation Alder Lake CPU launch. 

Kingston plans to ship their DDR5 memory modules with XMP profiles to allow their modules to be operated beyond JEDEC's DDR5 specifications, allowing motherboard manufacturers to adjust the power management integrated circuit (PMIC) beyond the 1.1 V DDR5 spec to enable higher performance levels. 

Motherboard partners have already been sent overclockable DDR5 memory modules from Kingston Technology, allowing them to qualify their motherboards for their next-generation memory platform. This early testing should help ensure that the first DDR5 compatible motherboards can run without issues, offering users the full benefits of Kingston's DDR5 technology.  
Below is Kingston's press release on the matter; 


    Kingston Technology Europe Co LLP, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced it has sent overclockable DDR5 modules to its motherboard partners to begin qualification on the next-generation memory platform. Kingston engineered its DDR5 modules with a preset XMP profile but also enabled our motherboard partners to manually adjust the power management integrated circuit (PMIC) beyond the 1.1V DDR5 spec, thus allowing maximum flexibility to overclock. Kingston expects to ship its DDR5 solutions in Q3.

Memory validation requires cooperation of the entire computing ecosystem and Kingston has forged close ties with the leading motherboard manufacturers and chipset makers throughout its 33-year history. This step continues the critical process of bringing leading high-performance and overclockable memory solutions to market later this year.?

For over three decades, Kingston has meticulously engineered and has 100% tested every cell on every chip on every module. The methodical testing combined with a lifetime warranty and unmatched customer service has made Kingston the largest third-party memory manufacturer in the world, with over 80% market share. Kingston has also been a longtime member of JEDEC, the governing entity for the microelectronics industry. For over a decade, Kingston has held a seat on the JEDEC board as well, helping set the standards for which all manufacturers follow.?
