Intel 9th Generation Core CPUs To Support 128 GB on Desktop

Category: Memory
Posted: October 15, 2018 02:42PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

Memory is an interesting component for a computer as there can be a right amount of it, depending on how you use your computer, and going above that amount is not necessarily worth it. For some people, just 8 GB will be enough, but for others 32 GB is more appropriate, but then there are still others that need more. AnandTech is reporting that Intel's 9th Generation Core processors, so the i5-9600K, i7-9700K, and i9-9900K, will be able to support up to 128 GB of RAM, following an update coming in "a few months' time." That would mean having four 32 GB DDR4 DIMMs in a desktop system; not just a high-end desktop system (HEDT).

As is explained in the article, this is not exclusively being achieved by the Double Capacity DIMMs like G.Skill announced last week, but also by a shift to 16 Gb chips being used on the PCBs, instead of the 8 Gb chips that are the current standard. What is not known is if older CPUs may support this much memory or if Intel's HEDT platform may support up to 256 GB of RAM.

Besides seeing CPU support, we may also need to wait and see how motherboards support this high capacity. G.Skill partnered with ASUS for its Double Capacity DIMM technology.

DRAM and NAND Prices May Decline During 4Q2018

Category: Memory
Posted: October 15, 2018 02:19PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

For anyone looking to build or even upgrade a computer in the near future, this is almost certainly good news. TrendForce, through its DRAMeXchange division, are predicting the price of memory, both DRAM and NAND, may come down in price during the fourth quarter of this year, and in 2019. The reasons for this include a sluggish demand for replacing smartphones, uncertain server shipments, and the shortage of Intel CPUs. Combined this suggests the possibility of DRAM oversupply in 2019, so manufacturers have been slowing or postponing investment in capacity expansion, but the prediction still is for prices to drop as much as 15% to 20% in 2019. The drop could be even greater, depending on the demand for servers and smartphones.

The market for NAND memory is also being impacted by decreasing demand, like what is being seen for DRAM, but this is mainly true for consumer products. Demand for enterprise SSDs will likely remain stable and the competition in this very profitable market could see prices drop there too.

G.Skill Announces New DDR4 Kits for Z370 and Double Capacity DIMMs

Category: Memory
Posted: October 8, 2018 12:21PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


With the announcement of the Z390 motherboards, such as those from MSI, of course we are seeing new memory kits announced too for filling the DIMM slots. G.Skill has announced two new kits for these motherboards, with one being a 2x 8 GB and the other a 4x 8GB, depending on what your needs are, but both are tested at 4500+ MHz.

The 2x 8GB kit is the faster, reaching 4800 MHz with CL 19-22-22-42 timings, so this kit is the fastest XMP speed available. If you need more capacity than that though, the 4x 8 GB kit is tested for 4500 MHz with the same CL 19-22-22-42 timings.

If you need still more RAM capacity than that, G.Skill also announced its new Trident Z RGB DC series with a DDR4 64 GB kit using two 32 GB sticks. These kits are only compatible with the three latest Z390 motherboards from ASUS though, which G.Skill worked with when developing the Double Capacity DIMM technology. These sticks double the number of 8 Gb chips installed on them, allowing 32 GB of memory on a single stick, but this requires a new PCB design and that the modules are taller to fit all the chips. The three kits available are all 2x 32 GB kits tested for 1.35 V, with one kit being DDR4 3000 CL 14-14-14-34 while the other two are both DDR4 3200 with CL 14-14-14-34 or CL 14-15-15-35 timings. Naturally these feature XMP 2.0 profiles to easily get the speeds you want. The three ASUS motherboards the support these kits are the ROG Z390 Maximums XI Apex, ROG Maximus XI Gene, and ROG Strix Z390-I Gaming.

RAM Prices May Come Down Thanks to Intel CPU Shortage

Category: Memory
Posted: September 11, 2018 11:39AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

If you are considering building a new computer or upgrading a current one with more memory, you may want to wait a bit as prices may be coming down soon. As it is, some have predicted the price of DRAM modules will decrease in 4Q2018, but now TrendForce, through its DRAMeXchange division, is suggesting this turn may be faster than predicted due to an Intel CPU shortage. While the cause of the shortage is unclear, Intel is suffering from one on its products based on its 14 nm++ process and 14 nm+ process, including the Coffee Lake platform. This in turn is also bringing down the expectations for laptop shipments, which combined the shortage and expectation of the DRAM market to shift into oversupply may cause prices to drop more than previously expected.

Another market that may be impact is NAND Flash, because if laptop shipment expectations are lowered than so will be the demand for the SSDs they use. Come the fourth quarter, we could see both of these memory technologies become more affordable.

Never content to not push things farther, G.Skill brought multiple DDR4 memory kits to Computex 2018 to show off what the company has achieved. First up is a dual-channel Trident Z RGB kit that was running at 5066 MHz with CL21-26-26-54 timings on an MSI Z370 I Gaming PRO Carbon AC motherboard with an Intel Core i7-8700K. If you want tighter timings than that, G.Skill also had a DDR4-4800 MHz dual-channel kit with CL17-17-17-37 timings, and this was running on an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X APEX motherboard, again with a Core i7-8700K. Both of these were 2 x 8 GB kits, but if you need more capacity than that, G.Skill had more to show with a 4 x 8 GB kit running at 4600 MHz with CL18-18-18-38 timings. This was with a Core i5-8600K on an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO.

Another 4 x 8 GB kit was shown off, but this was a SO-DIMM quad-channel kit, running at 4200 MHz with CL 18-18-18-38. This kit was paired with a Core i9-7940X CPU on an ASRock X299-ITX/ac motherboard. Another SO-DIMM kit on display was just a 2 x 8 GB kit running at 3600 MHz with CL18-18-18-43m but this was in an Intel NUC that had been modified for custom water cooling.

Not wanting to leave out AMD, G.Skill had a Ryzen 7 2700X CPU and ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VII Hero motherboard paired up with a 2 x 8 GB DDR4-4000MHz kit with CL18-22-22-42 timings. On an MSI X470 GAMING M7 AC with a Ryzen 5 2600, the timings were loosened to CL20-22-22-44.

Author: Guest_Jim_*

Among the improvements AMD made for its 2nd Generation Ryzen CPUs was a better integrated memory controller. Many people found it difficult to raise their DDR4 speeds to 3200 MHz on first generation Ryzen, and were considered fortunate by some if they could go higher, but this new IMC will make those speeds much more attainable. For that reason, G.Skill has announced new DDR4 RAM kits targeting the new processors, starting at a speed of DDR4 3200 MHz.

The new kits are in the Sniper X and Trident Z RGB series. The two sniper X kits are both 2x 8 GB with one having a tested frequency of 3400 MHz at 16-16-16-36 CL timings and the other at 3466 MHz with 18-18-18-38 timings. There are three Trident Z RGB kits, with the 3466 MHz and 3600 MHz only available in 2x 8 GB kits with timings of 18-22-22-42 for both. At 3200 MHz (with 16-18-18-38 timings) you have a choice of capacities at 2x 8 GB (16 GB), 4x 8 GB (32 GB), and 2x 16 GB (32 GB). All of these use 1.35 V.

The new AMD targeting kits will be available later this month.

G.Skill has revealed today it managed to reach DDR4-5000 MHz on a dual-channel memory setup, under air-cooling with RGB memory. If that sounds impressive, it is as previously extreme cooling methods such as liquid nitrogen were needed to reach this speed with in a single-channel configuration. G.Skill achieved this on an MSI Z370I Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard with an Intel Core i7-8700K.

If this wets your appetite for such ultra-fast memory kits, understand this is done with in-development memory. This means G.Skill is working on bringing DDR4-5000 MHz kits to retail, but it is not ready yet. The specific memory used was a DDR4-4700 MHz Trident Z RGB dual-channel kit that was successfully overclocked another 300 MHz to reach the 5000 MHz mark.

DDR5 Could be Available Starting in 2020

Category: Memory
Posted: August 22, 2016 02:45PM
Author: Nick Harezga

DDR4 is currently the highest level of DRAM available, but like all technology it shouldn't stay that way for long. At the Intel Developer Forum it was hinted that the specification for DDR5 could be completed by the end of this year, with availability expected to begin in 2020. As with all steps forward in technology, DDR5 will offer several benefits compared to its predecessors. Among them are higher memory density allowing for more RAM per slot, lower power usage, and higher speeds. The presentation noted that servers are likely to get the new RAM first as "many applications, like databases and analytics, are executed in memory." The updated DDR will offer improvements, but won't be as much of a step up as some other technology in the early stages of research and development that were viewed as possible upgrade paths from DDR. Technology such as phase-change memory, resistive RAM, and magnetoresistive RAM would also offer the ability to store data in RAM when the system is powered down.
