GIGABYTE unveiled its new memory AORUS RGB DDR5 at CES in Las Vegas. Although we assume there will be other capacities in the future, the ones presented will be marketed in a 32 GB kit (2 x 16 Gbytes) and will reach a frequency of 6,000 MHz .
The new generation of RAM memories is being deployed at a good pace in all areas of the technology industry: consumer, professional and servers. Although DDR4 will be still dominant, DDR5 will be extended this year as we have already seen in other launches from specialists such as Corsair , Kingston or Samsung, and also its equivalent for laptops, LPDDR5, ubiquitous in the range high presented this week at CES.
The standard presents important advantages compared to DDR4 in performance , energy consumption, operations or capacity, in addition to others typical of manufacturing, improvement of the data controller, of the integrated circuit power management or error correcting code (ECC) for professional applications.
The GIGABYTE AORUS RGB DDR5 is a good sample. They have been optimized to work with motherboards with Intel Z690 chipset, they work in dual channel, their frequency can reach 6,000 MHz and their latency is 40-40-40-76.
You can take advantage of the support for the Intel Extreme Memory Profile ( XMP 3.0 ) and together with the function “ DDR5 XMP Booster ” that detects the frequency in BIOS settings, allowing users to quickly choose between multiple overclocking profiles easily.
These memories equip passive cooling solutions based on copper and aluminum heat sinks , with nanocarbon coating and a high conductivity thermal pad, which promise to maintain the temperatures of the control unit of power and your own memories under control, even when you ‘turn them up’.
The modules have 8 digital LEDs that produce custom lighting strips and effects that can be managed with the GIGA RGB Fusion application and synchronized with other components and peripherals that have this type of lighting .
The AORUS RGB DDR5 claim to have been tested on the entire Gigabyte line of motherboards, although they may work on others. They have a lifetime guarantee and should reach the market shortly. No price has been provided.
