Kingston will arrive with its DDR5 this summer

Kingston has just announced that it is finalizing its overclocking-ready DDR5 memory modules and will begin shipping its arrays in Q3 2021.

In a way, this announcement also reinforces the September date for the launch of Alder Lake-S, which will be the only consumer CPU backed by DDR5 over 2021.

Kingston revealed that it has already sent initial samples to motherboard manufacturing partners such as ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, etc. Kingston’s DDR5 memory modules are designed to meet XMP profiles, but the company has also been working to give its motherboard manufacturing partners latitude to allow manual PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit) adjustments above 1.1V and thus promote overclocking.

Since a few weeks, we know that Micron in particular has started to deliver modules to the most “fussy” manufacturers of ram for demanding users.

The official Kingston press release: “Memory validation requires the cooperation of the entire computing ecosystem, and Kingston has built strong relationships with leading chipset and motherboard manufacturers throughout its 33-year history. This step continues the critical process of bringing market-leading high-performance, overclockable memory solutions to market later this year. For more than three decades, Kingston has meticulously designed and 100% tested every cell on every chip in every module. This methodical testing, combined with a lifetime warranty and unmatched customer service, has made Kingston the world’s largest third-party memory manufacturer, with more than 80 percent market share. Kingston is also a long-time member of JEDEC, the microelectronics industry’s governing body. For more than a decade, Kingston has also served on the JEDEC board, helping to set the standards that all manufacturers follow.”
