ADATA send out a press release about its DDR5 memory module development. The memory maker says they've been cooperating with MSI and Gigabyte to test and research DDR5 memory module solutions, including optimizations for overclocking. ADATA says DDR5 modules and DDR5-compliant motherboards will be launched simultaneously. No timeline is provided but presumably this will coincide with the arrival of Intel's 10nm Alder Lake-S processors later this year.

ADATA promises 8400MT/s DDR5 modules with a capacity of up to 64GB. DDR5 has integrated ECC and runs at 1.1V.
ADATA Technology, a manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, mobile accessories, gaming products, electric power trains, and industrial solutions, is gearing up to bring next-generation DDR5 memory modules to market to offers users a significant upgrade in speed, capacity, as well as increased bandwidth per CPU cores. ADATA has been working closely with two leading motherboard makers, MSI and Gigabyte, to ensure an optimized experience through ensuring synergies between ADATA’s DDR5 modules and their latest Intel platforms.

In parallel to developing the new memory modules, ADATA has also been working closely with two leading motherboard makers MSI and Gigabyte, its long-term strategic partners, to ensure their new platforms can take full advantage of DDR5. Among other initiatives, ADATA, MSI, and Gigabyte have been conducting joint testing and research to guarantee optimum DDR5 overclocking on the latest Intel platforms to meet gamers’ discerning standards. ADATA and the motherboard above makers will be launching DDR5 modules and DDR5-compliant motherboards simultaneously to offer high performance to a wide range of users, including enterprises, gamers, and creators, to name a few.

“As longtime strategic partners, Gigabyte and ADATA have committed themselves to test DRAM products to ensure exceptional overclocking performance on the latest Intel platforms,” said a representative from Gigabyte. “With next-generation DDR5, our commitment is no different, and we continue to verify the synergy of our products to deliver smooth operations and reliability.”

“The strategic partnership between MSI and ADATA is a complementary relationship that brings together ADATA’s leading expertise in memory and MSI’s core competencies in motherboards and PCs,” said a representative from MSI. “Together, we work hand in hand to validate that our products can work in combination to offer maximized DDR5 performance on the latest Intel platforms.”

“ADATA has always looked to progress technology to the next level, and DDR5 is our next objective in that pursuit,” said Nick Dai, Director of Product Marketing at ADATA. “In our journeys to innovate and progress technology, we have never been alone in those endeavors and are lucky to have MSI and Gigabyte as trusted partners to bring to market the best that technology has to offer.”

Faster Performance and Higher Capacities for the New Era in Tech
With the arrival of 5G networks, Wi-Fi 6, and processors with evermore cores, memory modules must keep up with these developments to ensure optimized computing. As a result, ADATA has been focused on developing next-generation DDR5 memory modules that will offer enhanced speeds, capacities, and increased bandwidth per CPU cores. ADATA’s DDR5 memory will deliver speeds of up to 8400MT/s and come in capacities of up to 64 GB. The modules will also come with error-correcting code (ECC) functionality for enhanced accuracy and reliability and power management functionality for improved energy efficiency with an energy consumption reduction of up to 1.1V.
