Interview: Kingston talks about what DDR5 will do for PC games

DDR5 is the latest memory standard for gaming PCs, with Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake being the first consumer desktop processor to support this standard. AMD is expected to follow suit with its Zen 4 architecture sometime in 2022, and in the new year, we should see low-power LPDDR5 landing on laptops as well.

We first interviewed Iwona Zalewska of Kingston Technology about DDR5 at the end of October, just as the new memory standard was about to launch. Since then, the new memory standard has shown some solid performance with the first platform to support it, the Intel Alder Lake platform. Although it has become almost impossible to find it in the wild.
