The Joint Electronic Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) has announced that they are working on official DDR5 specifications that will offer more bandwidth and better power efficiency.
According to the JEDEC compared to the DDR4., the new DDR5 will provide double the bandwidth and density along with delivering improved channel efficiency. Making it more power efficient than its predecessor.
JEDC announced this news on their official website saying, “JEDEC DDR5 memory will offer improved performance with greater power efficiency as compared to previous-generation DRAM technologies. As planned, DDR5 will provide double the bandwidth and density over DDR4, along with delivering improved channel efficiency. These enhancements, combined with a more user-friendly interface for server and client platforms, will enable high performance and improved power management in a wide variety of applications.”
JEDEC is expected to publish the DDR5 standard sometime in the next year. After the specifications are live, it will take a few months for the hardware manufacturers to adopt these standards. That means if you have recently assembled a new system using the DDR4 memory then you don’t have to worry about it for at least a year or two.
Stay tuned for the updates.
