Zadak Spark DDR5 Announcement

1 July 2021

No sooner have we all just got used to the idea of DDR4 memory, or perhaps taken advantage of the recently launched Ryzen 3rd Gen and Intel 11th Gen CPUs than a new memory specification is on the horizon in the form of DDR5.

Zadak produce high end memory kits and one of their most popular models is the Spark range. With the forthcoming DDR5 they've announced the next entry into this long running kit, the Spark DDR5. The key improvement, besides speed, of the new DDR5 format is the movement of the power management from the motherboard onto the memory itself, letting you run DDR5 at a staggeringly low 1.1V.

Available in both 16GB and 32GB capacities the modules come in truly breathtaking speeds. If you want to go as affordable as possible you can grab their 4800 MHz version, but should you want to go all in on getting the biggest possible bandwidth then 7200 MHz is available. 7200 MHz @ 1.1V! Blimey.

Naturally as with all modern memory kits the Spark has RGB illumination, and for those of you who prefer your lighting a little subtler it's a little strip on the front and top side, rather than the kind of lighting that will overpower your fans.

The form factor of the connection looks the same as DDR4, but I guess that with the power management being on the module itself, a new motherboard will be mandatory, right?Quote

A new motherboard will be needed anyways, and these pictures look like ddr4, i highly doubt ddr5 would be keyed the same, to easy to get it wrong for a lot of people if they did that.

So far everytime there has been a new ddr version, and even in the past before that, each version had a different layout.Quote
