About this deal

There aren't many processors that support DDR5 memory, and we haven't heard anything conclusive from the AMD camp.

JEDEC finalizes DDR5 standard: Terabyte-sized DDR5-6400

With several new performance, reliability and power saving modes implemented in its design, DDR5 is ready to support and enable next-generation technologies,” said Desi Rhoden, Chairman JC-42 Memory Committee and Executive VP Montage Technology. The Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-6400 C32 excelled in most of the benchmarks except for Cinebench R23, where it came in fourth.Looks are always in the eye of the beholder, but I feel the Team Delta RGB kit and its diffused RGB lighting looks great.

Pricing aside, DDR5 has little to offer over DDR4 in today's games with an Alder Lake processor for the most part. Surprisingly, Corsair’s Vengeance DDR5 RAM, running at 5200 Mt/s, inches out slightly ahead of the FURY Renegade DDR5.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. But most interesting of these results is 7-Zip, with that huge file compressing more than 20% faster on DDR5 than even the DDR4-4000 result. As for DDR5, there's little point investing in it right now unless you simply want the best of the best, at which point you're going for 6000+ spec memory which costs roughly the same amount as the 12900K processor.

That's a complete look at Alder Lake performance using a wide range of DDR4 and DDR5 memory kits with the Core i9-12900K. We did see a 12% boost to the 1% lows at 1080p, with a 6% improvement for the average frame rate and this was reduced to 5% at 1440p and then nothing at 4K. 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. Time Spy Extreme is the same test as Time Spy, the only difference being that it renders the graphics in 4K resolution.

For most of us considering a new Intel-based desktop-PC build today, the decision will be whether to build a new system now, using some DDR4 modules already in hand, or to wait for DDR5 pricing to normalize. To further improve performance, DDR5 brings better refresh schemes as well as an increased bank group count with the same number of banks per group. Illuminate your system with ten individually addressable, ultra-bright RGB LEDs per module, encased in a panoramic light bar. A few titles did show nice performance gains, but overall performance was much the same, leaving us to recommend prospective 12th-gen owners to ignore DDR5 for now and stick with tried-and-true DDR4. The DDR4-4000 memory allowed for a similar average frame rate, but the increased latency did reduce the 1% lows.

G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-6400 C32 Review: Top Performance

With exceptional transfer speeds of up to 7,200 Mbps, DDR5 effectively handles the ever-increasing demands of larger, more complex data workloads. With DDR4 memory you ideally want to use gear 1 as you'd need to run the memory up around DDR5 speeds to offset the increased latency. For the most part, we appear fairly GPU limited and that's going to be the case for 12900K owners in the vast majority of games, even with an extreme GPU. Superior speed advancements with double the banks from 16 to 32 and double the burst length from 8 to 16 take DDR5 memory, your gaming experience and your overall system applications to the next level of performance.Our Asus Maximus Z690 Apex has really improved and overclocking is a lot better than it was in the early days.

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. Still, DDR5-5200 and up now offers the best 1% low performance coupled with the highest average frame rates, even if DDR5-6200 is only 3% faster than DDR4-3200.
