SK hynix, one of the world’s largest memory chip manufacturers, has announced the launch of the world’s first DDR5 DRAM memory. About two years ago, the company announced that it was developing the first 16GB DDR5 DRAM, and the company has now achieved that goal.
DDR5 is the next evolutionary step in memory technology and continues the trend of recent generations, further reducing the operating voltage from 1.2V to 1.1V. This allows the unit to consume even less power. energy, with SK hynix speaks of a reduction of 20%. In addition, the new memory offers significantly faster transfers, with a transfer rate of between 4,800 Mbps and 5,600 Mbps, or 1.8 times higher than the DDR4 range.
Besides being much faster, the new DDR5 DRAM also includes an Error Correction Code (ECC), which can correct 1-bit level errors and increase application reliability up to 20 times.

SK hynix also said it will continue to work with other partners in the memory chip industry to develop the DDR5 ecosystem. Some partners already have DDR5 products listed on their websites, but SK hynix itself doesn’t appear to be showing any yet. At the moment, DDR5 products are targeted at high performance computing tasks like big data, AI, and machine learning, so consumers in general can take some time to get them on their computers. Additionally, support for this memory is only intended for future generations of Intel and AMD processors.
