In a press release, T-Force Gaming, Teamgroup’s sister brand, has confirmed that they have developed the first consumer DDR5 memory modules with overclocking support. The news about DDR5 is heating up as we approach the launch of the first generation platforms from Intel and AMD that will support DDR5 memory modules later this year.
T-Force Gaming develops DDR5 memory modules with overclocking support, voltages can exceed 2.6V
T-Force confirmed that after completing DDR5 U-DIMM and standard SO-DIMM validation, it is now targeting mainstream consumer desktop platform. The company now confirmed the development of DDR5 memory modules with support for overclocking. According to T-Force, they sent the first samples to major motherboard partners such as Gigabyte, MSI, ASRock, and ASUS for validation of their upcoming products.
T-Force also claims that DDR5 memory has a lot more room for voltage adjustment when it comes to overclocking support. This is mainly due to Enhanced Power Management ICs (PMICs) that allow for voltages above 2.6V. It is also detailed that the existing DDR4 memory modules handled their voltage conversion across the motherboard, but that changes with DDR5. Components that are required for voltage conversion are now moved to the memory DIMM itself, reducing voltage drain and noise generation while offering more headroom for overclocking.
Below is the press release from T-Force:
Press release – TEAMGROUP has worked vigorously in the development of next-generation DDR5 memory. After completing validation testing for standard DDR5 U-DIMM and SO-DIMM products in collaboration with leading motherboard manufacturers, TEAMGROUP today announces a breakthrough: its brand T-FORCE has successfully created DDR5 overclocking memory. . The samples were immediately sent to ASUS, ASRock, MSI and GIGABYTE for collaborative testing of their overclocking capabilities. Consumers can expect TEAMGROUP products to be fully compatible with motherboards from all four major manufacturers when the DDR5 generation arrives.
DDR5 overclocking memory has more room for voltage adjustment, due to its improved power management IC. This PMIC can support high frequency overclocking with voltage higher than 2.6V. In previous generations, the voltage conversion was controlled by the motherboard. With DDR5, components were moved into memory, allowing the module to handle voltage conversion, which not only reduces voltage wear but also reduces noise generation. This allows significantly more space for overclocking compared to the past and more powerful computing processing.
T-FORCE will continue to advance and develop DDR5 memory for various applications. The strong momentum you have built with your brand and technology during the DDR4 era will carry over into the future as you continue to explore the limits of DDR5 overclocking, achieving performances that outshine previous generations and improving the reliability of your products’ applications. During this transitional period of DRAM, T-FORCE is an industry leader, planning long-term future development and providing the most conventional DDR5 solutions.
We can definitely expect some crazy numbers from overclockers running DDR5 memory and we expect LN2 users to break the 10 GHz limit considering that 6666.6 MHz was already achieved in DDR4 memory.
