TEAMGROUP teases overclockable DDR5 -- promises much better overclocking

TEAMGROUP is really banging the DDR5 drum. A couple of months ago, the first talked about its first DDR5 modules and now TEAMGROUP hypes up its first DDR5 overclocking module. These modules will be launched under the T-FORCE brand. No actual products are revealed -- so it's not even a paperlaunch but more of a "technology preview" announcement. TEAMGROUP says the firm is sampling DDR5 OC modules to ASUS, ASRock, MSI, and Gigabyte.

Consumers can expect the TEAMGROUP DDR5 OC modules later this year when the first DDR5 compatible platform arrives. This is believed to be the Intel Alder Lake-S, it's scheduled for a late 2021 launch. According to TEAMGROUP, DDR5 will have greater room for voltage adjustment thanks to better power management IC.

One of the differences between DDR4 and DDR5 is that voltage conversion is no longer handled by the motherboard but by the memory modules. TEAMGROUP says this not only reduces voltage wear but also reduces noise generation. The firm claims overclocking headroom will be significantly higher compared to the past:
TEAMGROUP has worked vigorously on the development of next-generation DDR5 memory. After completing validation tests for standard DDR5 U-DIMM and SO-DIMM products with the collaboration of major motherboard manufacturers, TEAMGROUP is announcing an exciting breakthrough today: its T-FORCE brand has successfully created DDR5 overclocking memory. Samples were immediately sent to ASUS, ASRock, MSI, and GIGABYTE for collaborative testing of its overclocking capability. Consumers can expect TEAMGROUP’s products to be fully compatible with motherboards from the four major manufacturers when the DDR5 generation arrives.

The DDR5 overclocking memory has greater room for voltage adjustment, due to its upgraded power management IC. This PMIC can support high frequency overclocking with voltage over 2.6 V. In previous generations, voltage conversion was controlled by the motherboard. With DDR5, components were moved to the memory, enabling the module to handle the voltage conversion, which not only reduces voltage wear but also reduces noise generation. This allows significantly increased room for overclocking compared to the past, and more powerful computing processing.

T-FORCE will continue to forge ahead and develop DDR5 memory for various applications. The strong momentum it has built with its brand and technology during the DDR4 era will be carried forward into the future as it continues to explore the overclocking limits of DDR5, achieve performances that eclipse previous generations, and enhance the reliability of its product applications. During this transitory period of DRAM, T-FORCE is an industry leader, planning for future long-term development and providing the most mainstream DDR5 solutions.
