Corsair launches its new generation of DDR5 memories

The world of computers is today celebration: it is the day at which Intel launches its expected 12th generation of processors, nicknamed Alder Lake. And by the hand, a multitude of components adapted to their benefits.

For this reason, Corsair has already launched its new Dominator DDR5 memories, in options of 32GB and 64GB (two modules in both cases). The jump to this new generation of memory is one of the reasons why the new generation of Intel processors was being so anticipated.

DDR5 technology allows RAM reports to achieve greater transfering fees than those of the previous generation with a minor consumption (1,2V to 1V) while the controller of the same motherboard has been moved. The memory modules themselves. While this can increase the temperature they reach, it allows an improved voltage and voltage setting. It is also necessary to mention that DDR memories include a system called On-Die ECC to detect faults and inconsistencies in a better way and alleviate them without the user noticing it at work with the computer.

Another important advance is the support for two data transaction channels by memory (before one could only be one), which would effectively allow the performance to duplicate in some cases with the previous generation. And if we add that it is possible to incorporate twice as a module, we have a clearly winning combination and an impressive generational jump.

Led this to the Corsair Domintator Platinum RGB, we are facing a type of memory that reaches the speeds of 4,800 and 5.200MHz, as well as latencies of 34-35-35-69 and 38-38-38-84, according to the chosen version .

And as your own name indicates, they have LEDs to be able to illuminate the computer inside the user. It is necessary to use the Free Corsair ICUE software to give full use to this features. It is from this program from which you can make use of the new compatibility with Intel XMP 3.0, which allows the temperatures and performance of the memories in real time.

It is clear that Corsair's new DDR5 memories are greatly designed for the Gamer audience, who are the ones who at first more may notice the jump to the new technology. The sum of new type of RAM, new type of processor and the inclusion of the PCI5.0 standard in the new motherboards opens a range of future possibilities.

Obviously, as each time a generational leap is given, the price is not precisely affordable. The 32GB module exceeds 300 euros in its two versions. At the moment, taking the jump to the new Intel technology will be especially expensive, especially if there is still a shortage of chips for its manufacture.
