Under the embrace of its performance-oriented gaming brand T-Force, TeamGroup has already announced that it has already shipped the first samples of its overclocking-capable DDR5 RAM to motherboard manufacturers such as ASUS, ASRock, MSI and Gigabyte for them to can validate its performance in your next-generation products. This means that when the DDR5 generation of motherboards hits the market, they will already have RAM in their QVL to ensure full compatibility.
Overclocked DDR5 RAM, isn’t this normal?
When we talk about RAM, the possibility of overlocking it sounds normal to all of us. However, with DDR5 RAM, things will change, since in current and previous generations the voltage control and its conversion were found on the motherboard, but with DDR5 RAM this power stage it has been moved directly to RAM.
This allows for much finer and more adequate voltage control for the RAM, improving Overclocking capacity and stability because overclocking is almost completely eliminated. power leaks in the conversion stage, also improving efficiency and reducing consumption. According to TeamGroup, these first DDR5 RAM memories that have already been sent to manufacturers are capable of supporting up to 2.6V when overclocked, which can lead to astronomical operating frequencies.
So, with the generation of DDR5 RAM we are going to see ourselves in the position that there will be models that do not allow overclocking, plain and simple. We can expect that gaming-oriented RAM manufacturers do have advanced ICs that allow very fine voltage control and therefore have a wide margin for overclocking, but there will also be entry-level entry-level models that do not. We can also hope that this is a point, precisely, that manufacturers exploit with marketing techniques, that you can have for sure.
As for TeamGroup, they have said that they will continue with their development of DDR5 RAM for various applications; They are in a sweet time where they have put a strong development push in during the DDR4 era, and they hope this will carry over to the next generation of RAM where, to put it bluntly, they want to explore the limits of its performance. We have already seen some examples in the previous weeks that have given us a preview of the performance of DDR5 memory, but this will be only the beginning since as always happens, as time progresses and technology improves we can discover new much higher heights. where performance that now seems incredible to us will become the norm.
