Do you like RAM? Do you like really fast RAM? Do you like large amounts of memory in your RAM? Samsung just teased (via Tom’s Hardware) some ridiculous 512GB DDR5 RAM modules at the Hot Chips 33 event, and this RAM is almost twice as powerful as DDR4.
This new DDR5-7200 RAM module promises to offer up to 40% more than DDR4, mixed with double capacity and lower voltage. Of course, you already know how important RAM is to the speed of your computer, so the idea of 512GB in a single stick with all the other benefits offered by the new DDR5 technology sounds like something that’ll have computer users drooling.
The reason Samsung can cram so much memory into a single RAM module is that it’s relying on eight-stacked DDR5 dies. DDR4 is limited to four dies, even in the best, most powerful modules on the market.
