The DDR5 memory specification should be finalized by the end of this year

 

Some hardware experts believed that DDR4 memory would be the last we see of the DRAM standard, but now it seems that DRAM still has a lot of life in it as the DDR5 memory standard is now in development. 

Right now it is expected that the DDR5 memory specification will be finalized and released by the end of the year and start reaching PCs in 2020. This new memory standard will be designed with modern manufacturing processes in mind, allowing this new memory type to offer increased capacities as well as increased speeds and reduced power consumption. 

The DDR4 memory specification was developed when 40nm and 50nm manufacturing processes were used for making DRAM, which are hugely different to today's 14nm and 10nm memory manufacturing processes. DDR4 as it stands has a lot of shortcomings, especially in the server markets, though DDR5 is only expected to live until around 2025. 

  The DDR5 memory specification should be finalized by the end of this year

So going to assume DDR5 will be the last DRAM standard?Quote

could end up having 1TB of ram Quote

DDR4 equalled epic fail if we are honest as it is hardly better than DDR3 performance wise.

I remember 8 Pack posting a load of bench figures on another forum when DDR4 arrived to show how fast it was. I think I was the only one at the time who pointed out his scores where hardly better than if he was using DDR3.

DDR4 = higher MHz but terrible timings, will DDR5 be even worse.Quote

And finally matching the numbering used in GPUs for a while. It was very confusing (for me at least) why GPUs were using GDDR5 when PCs were still on DDR3/4. I know I know GDDR has nothing to do with DDR but still they are both DoubleDataRate memories so the confusion to me was how come one is on the 5th iteration while the other is stuck at 3rd/4th?Quote

anything to justify new mb and force people to buy really not needed items, unless ofc they continue to use either ddr3 or 4 slotsQuote
