Chinese memory makers are keen to share details about DDR5 progress. Yesterday, we had a post about the first DDR5 modules from Netac and Jiahe Jinwei and now there's fresh information about Asgard's DDR5 gaming memory plans. Asgard is the gaming brand of Jiahe Jinwei. With trial production out of the way, the company is able to provide DDR5 product roadmap.
First up, VideoCardz reports Asgard is already mass producing 16GB and 32GB DDR5 kits with a frequency of 4800MHz. These modules have a latency of CL40 and run at 1.1V.
Later in 2021, or in 2022, Asgard plans to offer 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB kits clocked at 5600MHz. As the frequency gets higher, latency gets even worse of course. The 5600MHz DDR5 modules from Asgard will use CL46. The 6400MHz kits are expected in 2022 at the earliest.
Interestingly, all of these modules will use just 1.1V. DDR5 will allow much higher frequencies than DDR4, some memory makers already expect future modules will be capable of hitting 10GHz.
The firm is also considering 6400MHz kits, which could be offered in 64GB and 128GB capacities. These modules are envisioned to have a latency of CL52.
Here is the roadmap:
Asgard foresees DDR5-5600 128GB DDR5 kits in 2022
