Kingston is first third-party vendor to get Intel Platform Validation on DDR5 memory
Kingston Technology has just announced that their DDR5 UDIMMs have received Intel Platform Validation, making the first milestone of compatibility between Kingston DDR5 memory solutions and Intel’s upcoming DDR5 platform. Aside from validation with Intel, Kingston has also sent out over 10 000 DDR5 UDIMM samples to major motherboard makers and technology partners to verify compatibility as well.
By helping everyone test their DDR5 platforms, Kingston believes that this will help lay the foundation for a smooth transition to DDR5. Kingston has two DDR5 memory solutions already, with 16GB and 32GB DDR5-4800 UDIMMs running at just 1.1V. Kingston will be backing their DDR5 solutions with lifetime warranties, as you would usually get with Kingston memory products.
Kingston is currently the top third-party DRAM module supplier in the world, and it is their 18th year in a row at the top. Aside from the aforementioned memory modules, Kingston also has a range of DDR5 memory modules in the pipeline, including gaming-oriented FURY options as well.
