When you install memory in a system, there is a set of standardized speeds/timings your memory will run at. This standard is called JEDEC. This is why you see DDR4 and DDR5 memory speeds like DDR4-2133, DDR4-2666, and DDR5-4800. These are standardized speeds that all memory manufacturers adhere to. Outside of JEDEC are additional performance … Read more

DDR5 memory bandwidth is initially at 4.8 Gbps per pin, compared with DDR4’s 3.2 Gbps. Future versions are expected to double DDR4’s, going up to a maximum of 6.4 Gbps. DDR4 frequency ranges from 1866 to 3200 MHz (without overclocking), while DDR5 ranges from 4800 to 6400 MHz initially. DDR4 maximum density is 16 Gb … Read more
