TeamGroup has launched new Elite and Elite Plus DDR5 reminiscence kits to rival the greatest RAM. Based on the product web page, the DDR5-6400 reminiscence kits are seemingly drop-in appropriate with the upcoming “Intel Z790 Refresh” platform for 14th Era Raptor Lake Refresh processors.
Current thirteenth Era Raptor Lake processors assist DDR5-5600 or DDR4-3200 reminiscence out of the gate. The specs on the product web page trace that Raptor Lake Refresh will seemingly assist DDR5-6400 natively. All of a sudden, the rumors of Raptor Lake Refresh reportedly having a better-integrated reminiscence controller (IMC) appear just a little extra credible.
TeamGroup’s newest DDR5-6400 reminiscence kits conform to JEDEC specs, which means you need not overclock them to hit DDR5-6400. In consequence, they do not include Intel XMP 3.0 or AMD EXPO profiles. They’re plug-and-play on appropriate platforms just like the Intel Z790 Refresh platform talked about on TeamGroup’s web site. So far as AMD goes, Zen 4 solely has native DDR5-5200 assist. The newest AGESA microcode has enabled some Zen 4 processors to hit DDR5-6400 and allowed some golden samples to go as much as DDR5-8000. That is the rationale why Zen 4 is not on the compatibility listing.
|Reminiscence Equipment||Half Quantity||Capability||Knowledge Charge||Major Timings||Voltage||Guarantee|
|TeamGroup Elite Plus||TPBD564G6400HC52DC01, TPSD564G6400HC52DC01||2 x 32GB||DDR5-6400||52-52-52-103 (2T)||1.1||Lifetime|
|TeamGroup Elite||TED532G6400C52DC01||2 x 32GB||DDR5-6400||52-52-52-103 (2T)||1.1||Lifetime|
|TeamGroup Elite Plus||TPBD532G6400HC52DC01, TPSD532G6400HC52DC01||2 x 16GB||DDR5-6400||52-52-52-103 (2T)||1.1||Lifetime|
|TeamGroup Elite||TED516G6400C52DC01||2 x 16GB||DDR5-6400||52-52-52-103 (2T)||1.1||Lifetime|
Being JEDEC-compliant has its concessions. Though the reminiscence kits solely require a DRAM voltage of 1.1V, the reminiscence timings are horrible. TeamGroup has configured the timings to 52-52-52-103, which is the center bin. The underside and prime bins are set to 56-56-56 and 46-46-46, respectively. The sloppy timings will negatively influence the reminiscence’s efficiency. For comparability, entry-level DDR5-6400 reminiscence kits have their timings set at 40-40-40-84. However then once more, these are overclocked reminiscence modules, pulling 1.35V as an alternative of TeamGroup’s JEDEC-specced 1.1V. The decrease working voltage implicates diminished energy consumption, nevertheless it’s sometimes not an enormous deal on desktop platforms except you goal to construct a really energy-efficient system.
TeamGroup will supply the DDR5-6400 reminiscence beneath the run-of-the-mill Elite sequence and the marginally better-looking Elite Plus sequence that comes with a low-profile aluminum black or silver warmth spreader. Both method, the reminiscence might be out there as single DIMMs (16GB or 32GB) or dual-channel kits (2x16GB or 2x32GB). The timings and DRAM voltage stay the identical whatever the capability or presentation.
TeamGroup introduced that the Elite and Elite Plus DDR5-6400 reminiscence kits will launch in August 2023 in North America and Taiwan. The corporate did not reveal the pricing, although. It might appear that the reminiscence kits will arrive earlier than Raptor Lake Refresh, rumored to hit the market in October.
