DDR5 expected to become dominant in 2023

Market research firm Yole Developments has cooked up some forecasts about the memory market. Later this year, we'll see the release of Alder Lake, the first consumer CPU architecture from Intel with DDR5 memory support.

More DDR5 bits than DDR4 bits to ship in 2023

Hexus reports the analysis predicts DDR5 will overtake DDR4 in terms of bit shipments in 2023. This trend will be primarily driven by the server market, which is expected to rapidly adopt the new DDR memory standard. Nevertheless, the adoption of DDR5 is expected to be quite rapid and DDR4 will be pretty rate three to four years from now.
The chart directly above gave birth to our headline, but it must be viewed in the context of the chart above it. In other words, the big swing from DDR4 to DDR5, resulting in DDR5 leading in bit shipments as early as 2023, is going to be led by the server industry – with its significantly greater bits shipped per annum. You can see DRAM shipments off the pack of PCs are far lower, and more comparable to automotive.
