ASGARD announces 128GB DDR5-4800 RAM for the 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake platform
ASGARD, a RAM manufacturer from China, has just announced their DDR5-4800 offerings for the next-gen platforms. It is probably worth mentioning that this is just an announcement, as ASGARD will apparently only commence mass production when Intel announces the Intel 600-series chipset for the upcoming 12th Gen Alder Lake platform.
The memory kits are available in capacities ranging up to 128GB, which will provide enthusiasts ample RAM to fully take advantage of Google Chrome. The 4800MHz speeds should also ensure great compatibility, as it is the base speed of the DDR5 standard. The timings of 40-40-40 might also seem really loose by DDR4 standards, but then again the memory runs at just 1.1V.
DDR5 promises close to twice the performance of DDR4 while consuming 20% less power. ASGARD has listed out the platforms that are expected to support its DDR5-4800 memory kits. Intel is reportedly going to support it with the Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP processors for the server segment, as well as the 12th Gen Intel Core processors based on the Alder Lake architecture for consumers.
They also interestingly listed the Tiger Lake-U processors, AMD Van Gogh and Rembrandt APUs, even though the former is a mobile processor that won’t support ASGARD’s DIMM modules.
