Patriot is pushing the limits of DDR5 at CES 2024
Want faster DDR5? Patriot are making it happen!
Patriot aren’t just pushing the limits of PCIe 5.0 storage with their Viper PV573 SSD, they are also showing us the future of DDR5 memory. We were shown the peaks of DDR5 performance today, and we were also shown what will push forward the limits of DDR5 tomorrow.
The Legend behind the show – Meet Shannon
This year we want to shine a light on the people behind CES. For Patriot, that light shines on Shannon Robb. Shannon isn’t just a PR guy, he is hardcore PC enthusiast. This mythical man has been working hard at CES by day and by night he has been pushing the limits of Patriot’s Viper Xtreme 5 memory with extreme overclocking runs, just for fun! I don’t know how you have the energy friend, but I applaud you for it.
Patriot are pushing DDR5 memory to new heights
At their boot, Patriot has a tonne of memory to show us. They had RDIMMs, SODIMMs, regular DIMMs and even some prototype modules. Representing some of the best memory available today, Patriot shown us some Viper Xtreme 5 DDR5 memory modules. This includes RGB clad modules that could reach speeds of up to 8,000 MT/s and non-RGB modules that could reach 8,200 MT/s speeds. Those are some fast modules, but Patriot can do better.
At CES 2024, Patriot shown us an engineering preview for their Viper Xtreme 5 8800MT/s + DDR5 memory modules. Below you can see an modules running at DDR5-9000 speeds. These speeds are benchmark stable, which is a mean feat for DDR5 memory.
Patriot shows us the future of DDR5
Now for the future of DDR5 memory. Patriot had another engineering preview to show us. This time it was for a DDR5-6400 memory kit, one that features a new client memory clock driver (CKD). With these new chips, Patriot has created JEDEC standard DDR5-6400 memory modules.
While DDR5-6400 speeds may not sound like much, this technology is what paves the way towards an era of “enhanced DDR5 performance”. With JEDEC standard DDR5-6400 modules, Patriot are preparing boost DDR5 memory performance from the bottom up. With a higher level of baseline performance, just imagine how much faster overclocked modules could be.
Today, AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs and Intel’s 14th Generation desktop processors officially support DDR5-5200 and DDR5-5600 speeds respectively. Patriot are opening the door to an era where DDR5-6400 is the standard speed for DDR5 based PC platforms. That’s good news for everyone, as faster memory will help us build faster PCs.
