24GB and 48GB capacity

Micron has released 24GB and 48GB capacity DDR5 memory modules.

According to the modules are compatible with both AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 profiles and are designed for desktop PCs running AMD's Ryzen 7000-series as well as Intel's 12th and 13th Generations Core processors.

The modules feature data transfer rates of 5200 MT/s and 5600 MT/s as well as CL46 latency at 1.1V. The DDR5-5600 DIMMs come in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB versions. The new 24GB and 48GB possibilities are interesting and are based on 24Gb memory chips. DDR5-5200 modules are available only in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB sizes.

Using two 24GB or 48GB modules instead of a pair of 32GB and 64GB DIMMs allows PC to be built with 48GB or 96GB of dual-channel memory. This will be cheaper than machines with 64GB or 128GB of RAM.

Micron has not disclosed recommended prices for its DDR5-5200 and DDR5-5600 modules.
