Crucial works with top-tier CPU and motherboard vendors to ensure quality and compatibility.

DDR5 RAM from Crucial = next-level performance

The phenomenal speed of DDR5 means you can have multiple Chrome tabs open while watching YouTube, editing family photos, and chatting with friends on social media. To work not just faster but also better, DDR5 is engineered for efficiency so you can load, transfer, and download files faster, with less lag time. 

DDR4 vs DDR5 concurrent operations comparison.

Two independent 32-bit channels per module for twice the concurrent operations. 

DDR4 vs DDR5 banks comparison

2x banks and bank groups increase data bus efficiency. 

DDR4 vs DDR5 data rate comparison

Doubling the burst length to 16 enables higher data rates and bus efficiency. 

DDR5 RAM = optimized stability and increased efficiency

DDR5 provides the same lasting reliability as DDR4, even with the rigorous demands of next-gen computing. With improved stability and efficiency, DDR5 provides stronger signaling and cleaner power.

DDR5 On-Die ECC (ODECC)

On-die error correction code (ODECC) offers long-term stability. 

DDR5 PMIC

Power management (PMIC) moves from the motherboard to the module. 

DDR4 vs DDR5 voltage comparison

Module voltage is reduced from 1.2V to 1.1V. 

Future DDR5 speeds and densities

As DDR5 technology matures over its five to seven-year lifespan, new products will become available that are even faster, in more densities.

Future DDR5 products will reach speeds up to 8400 MT/s

Products with speeds of 4800MT/s will launch in late 2021. When the technology matures, new products will reach speeds up to 8400MT/s, which is 2.63x faster than DDR4. 

DDR5 future densities up to 4x DDR4

Products in densities of 8, 16 and 32GB will launched in late 2021. When the technology matures, new products will reach densities of 128GB, which is 4x larger than DDR4.
