About this deal

When it comes to DDR4 memory, we see again that the sweet spot is around the 3600 mark, with DDR4-4000 barely reducing latency from what was seen with the CL16 3600 kit. Then from 2400 to 2933 we see a further 12% increase and at that point DDR4 is maxed out with 3200, 3600, and even 4000 only offering a few extra frames. In total, we have nine 32GB memory kits from the Vengeance LPX, Vengeance RGB RT, Vengeance RGB Pro and Dominator Platinum RGB series, covering DDR speeds from 2400 right up to 6200. We used all default timings for each kit, and have labeled graphs with the primary timings for each one. We've simply loaded XMP on the MSI Z690 Tomahawk DDR4 and DDR5 motherboards, and in two instances manually adjusted the gear mode to show gear 1 and gear 2 performance. clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 34-246-182-217_s-23-203-249-90_ts-1604429563-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 34-246-182-217_s-95-101-129-82_ts-1604425062-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 34-246-182-217_s-95-101-143-18_ts-1604429398-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 34-246-182-217_s-95-101-143-24_ts-1604429274-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 34-246-182-217_s-95-101-143-24_ts-1604429365-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net,

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is very CPU intensive but at 1080p with a 6900 XT we're able to turn the game from CPU limited to GPU limited by the time DDR4-2933 CL16 is reached. We do see small improvements as memory performance is increased, but from 2933 to 6200 we're looking at a 7% increase in 1% lows, that's it. High-performance computing requires memory that can keep pace with the ever-increasing demands of today’s processors,” said Joe Macri, AMD Compute and Graphics CTO “With the publication of the DDR5 standard, AMD can better design its products to meet the future demands of our customers and end-users.” Quadrupling capacity High-performing kits still command a premium though and the G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-6400 2x 16GB kit is certainly a speedy offering. It’s not the first 6400MHz kit on the market, but we believe it’s the first to come with a CAS latency of just 32, and one of very few kits at any speed to come with a CL that low. Surprisingly, Corsair’s Vengeance DDR5 RAM, running at 5200 Mt/s, inches out slightly ahead of the FURY Renegade DDR5. Still, between all the DDR5 RAM kits that we’re testing, there margin of difference in the performance majorly lies between 1% – 3% in all our gaming benchmarks. 3DMark Time Spy ExtremeA height of 44mm means the module won’t come in the way of other components in your PC, particularly if you’re using a liquid cooler. Taller RAM modules sometimes make it problematic for the water pipes. That wouldn’t be a problem with the FURY Renegade. Enabling the XMP Profile All product specifications reflect internal test results and are subject to variations by the user's system configuration The FURY Renegade 32GB 6400MT/s kit costs ₹21,700. The same kit at a lower speed of 6000MT/s costs ₹17,999. Without RGB, both kits comes ever cheaper. Spending ₹3,200 extra for around 1-2% performance is a decision one has to make for themselves. Comparing with other OEMs, there are hardly any competitors for the 6400MT/s variant. G.Skill offers 7200 CL34 RAM for around ₹26,000. That is a good ₹3,300 above the FURY Renegade. In perspective, only G.Skill has a competitive RAM. For anyone looking to maximize the value of an Alder Lake processor, DDR4 memory is what you'll be after, and there isn't any point as far as we can tell going beyond DDR4-4000. So if DDR4-3200 CL16 and DDR4-4000 CL18 are priced fairly similarly in your region, you might as well go with 4000.

DDR5-6400 32GB RGB RAM Kit Review Kingston FURY Renegade DDR5-6400 32GB RGB RAM Kit Review

No doubt someone will start to produce cheaper lower latency non-ECC DDR5 RAM if it is possible to do so. We will wait and see what happens, there is plenty of time before DDR5 hits the mass market for desktops, and then we will find out the reality of DDR5 in the desktop environment rather than this super crappy info release where we really do not know what the RAM speed even was.! All product specifications reflect internal test results and are subject to variations by user’s system configuration. File compression and video encoding are two tests that show decent gains. The G.Skill kit is the fastest of all tested kits, though as it's the fastest on-paper kit, that’s not a surprise. Even less of a surprise are the stellar synthetic AIDA64 results, which show the G.Skill kit leading the way. The latency result is fantastic too.The idea of this test is not to take a few premium kits and then manually adjust timings and frequencies, which is what we've done in the past. Instead we want to test memory kits you can actually buy and see how those perform and compare. We reached out to Corsair and submitted a long shopping list of kits that we wanted to test and they were gracious enough to help us out. So there's either something else that's hosing up the memory module or AIDA64 doesn't quite know the best way to test the memory. clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 176-34-86-175_s-23-203-249-81_ts-1604432488-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 176-34-86-175_s-23-203-249-90_ts-1604428164-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 176-34-86-175_s-95-101-143-18_ts-1604428258-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 176-34-86-175_s-95-101-143-24_ts-1604428321-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 34-242-207-243_s-23-203-249-81_ts-1604425495-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, g2nlvmqcchiscx5bva5a-pwotro-14b66ca5a-clientnsv4-s.akamaihd.net, g2nlvmqccuqvax5bs7hq-p4vzcl-ad59a5fd9-clientnsv4-s.akamaihd.net, g2nlvmqccuqxax5bsz6q-pm3a6a-3feb7d021-clientnsv4-s.akamaihd.net, g2nlvmqxzp4swx5bs5uq-pd12b9-62c8cb38d-clientnsv4-s.akamaihd.net, g2nlvmqxzp4swx5bt3va-p7puv0-d4fafcfea-clientnsv4-s.akamaihd.net, g2nlvmsy3wdkax5bs5zq-p675cj-d0b1fd299-clientnsv4-s.akamaihd.net, g33b4vqccuqvax5btwhq-pfp8ei-5c0ea4329-clientnsv4-s.akamaihd.net, The Trident Z5 RGB memory kit has a great CAS Latency (32); however, its other timings need some work. Sadly, there wasn't a considerable margin for optimization. Even at 1.45V, we only reduced the tRCD, tRP, and tRAS from 39-39-102 to 37-37-97. Bottom Line

Do note that it's a tall kit, however, so you'll need to make sure your cooler is compatible with its height and doesn't tower over the DIMM slots of your motherboard at all. The modules themselves feel well built and the heatspreader hefty, indicating there's good cooling potential. Some of the silk screening is a bit over the top perhaps, but since you’ll never see that after its installed. Bandwidth looks great but Latency terrible which is par the course with every new memory standard. By the time i'm looking to build a DDR5 platform which won't be until maybe 2024-2025 these modules should be much better. Just like with PMIC, an Error Correcting Code chip is installed on a DDR5 RAM module. Its purpose is to detect errors of a signal before sending the signal to the CPU.

Beyond this point, the improvements for DDR4 are fairly minimal and going from 3200 to 4000 we're looking at a 15% increase. That's not nothing, but for a 25% increase in frequency, that's not a big jump which is explained by increased timings. For productivity workloads, where time is money, you might be able to justify the cost of high-end DDR5, but you'll also want to make sure the 12900K is the fastest processor for that workload, otherwise the Ryzen 9 5950X or a Threadripper CPU might be a better investment.

DDR5 does move performance along a little bit, DDR5-4800 was 4% faster than DDR4-4000 and 3600 and we continued to see around a 3-4% gain with each step up to DDR5-6200, hitting 178 fps on average. In the end, that meant DDR5-6200 was 13% faster than DDR4-4000. All product images shown are for illustration purposes only and may not be an exact representation of the product. Replacing a data center's DDR4 with DDR5 saves power of up to 1TWh annually. The on-DIMM PMIC further boosts Time for some games and we'll start with Rainbow Six Siege using the ultra quality preset at 1080p with the Radeon RX 6900 XT. Quite incredibly, the 12900K can drive over 500 fps using DDR4-2400 memory in the gear 2 mode and that means the best DDR4 results which was seen with DDR4-3200 memory, was just 9% faster when comparing the average frame rate, or 14% faster for the 1% lows. That said, a lot of applications are both memory latency and bandwidth sensitive such as Corona. So if you have weak memory bandwidth coupled with weak latency performance, performance overall is going to tank and we see that with the DDR4-2400 kit using the gear 2 mode, which was the default for this configuration.However, with the rest of the memory kits offering either strong bandwidth performance or respectable latency, we're looking at no more than an 11% difference between the fastest and slowest kits. DDR4-4000 CL18 using gear 1 did provide the best results, but DDR4-3200 and 3600 CL16 also beat out all DDR5 kits. DDR5 memory's availability problem is related to a shortage of power management components. It's not the same as we're seeing with GPUs, which also have a demand problem which exacerbates the shortage. Supply will certainly improve throughout 2022 for DDR5, something that we cannot say for sure about graphics cards. Our DDR5 test system leverages Intel's Core i9-12900K processor with Corsair's CUE H100i Elite LCD liquid cooler taking care of the cooling. The flagship Alder Lake chip resides on the MSI MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboard, running the 7D28vA8 firmware. Meanwhile, the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Trio is responsible for our gaming RAM benchmarks. DDR5 achieves 30% greater power efficiency than DDR4 through improved performance and power reduction.
