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

DDR5 is the latest memory standard to add luster to our gaming PCs. Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake is the first consumer-grade desktop processor to support this standard. AMD is expected to emulate its Zen 4 architecture sometime in 2022, and in the new year, we should see low-power LPDDR5 also land on laptops.

Our first interview with Iwona Zalewska of Kingston Technology was about DDR5 at the end of October, just as the new memory standard is about to be released. Since then, the new memory standard has shown some strong performance on Intel’s Alder Lake, the first platform to support it. Although it has also become almost impossible to find in the wild.
