Micron introduces 24GB and 48GB DDR5 modules for desktop PCs with AMD Ryzen 7000 and Intel Alder or Raptor Lake

Micron introduced 24GB and 48GB Crucial DDR5 RAM modules. They are reported to support AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 overclocking profiles. As such, they are fully compatible with 12th and 13th Gen AMD Ryzen 7000 and Intel Core processors.

Micron has expanded its lineup of Crucial DDR5 RAM modules with several new additions that support 5200 and 5600 MT/s data rates. CL46 timings and an operating voltage of 1.1 V have been announced for them. DDR5-5600 RAM modules are available in volumes of 8, 16, 24, 32 and 48 GB. The DDR5-5200 strips, on the other hand, will offer volumes of 8, 16 and 32 GB.

Typically, 24 and 48 GB RAM modules are used in server systems. However, the fact that the solutions offered by Micron support the AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 overclocking profiles clearly indicates that they are intended for ordinary consumer PCs.

Using paired 24 or 48GB RAM modules instead of 32 or 64GB modules saves gaming PC assembly and gets a system with 48 or 96GB dual channel RAM. In addition, according to the Tom’s Hardware portal, the use of 48 or 96 GB is considered more optimal for modern processors with 16 or 24 cores.

Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not disclosed the recommended prices for its presented solutions. However, given the projected 18-23% drop in demand for DDR5 SDRAM memory chips in the first quarter of this year, we can expect new products from Micron to be really interesting offerings.
