Micron Unveils 24GB and 48GB DDR5 Memory Modules

Posted on

Micron has introduced its new DDR5 memory modules featuring 24GB and 48GB capacity, reports News.Mynavi.jp (via @momomo_us). The modules are compatible with both AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 profiles for quickly setting them up and are designed for desktop PCs running AMD’s Ryzen 7000-series as well as Intel’s 12th and 13th Generations Core processors. 

Micron’s new family of DDR5 memory modules feature data transfer rates of 5200 MT/s and 5600 MT/s as well as CL46 latency at 1.1V. The DDR5-5600 DIMMs come in traditional 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB versions, but the interesting capacities are the new 24GB and 48GB models. Those are probably based on 24Gb memory chips, whereas the former likely use 16Gb DRAM ICs. Meanwhile, DDR5-5200 modules are available only in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB sizes.

Typically, 24GB and 48GB capacities are considered to be optimal for new-generation server platforms as they allow systems to precisely balance memory capacity and the number of cores, which ultimately means lower costs. Meanwhile, support for AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 profiles designed primarily for enthusiasts in mind indicate that these modules are indeed aimed at desktops.
