Kingston Gets First Intel DDR5 Memory Validation

Kingston Technology has announced that its upcoming DDR5 UDIMMS has received Intel Platform Validation, bringing the new memory one step closer to the mass market. Kingston plans to launch its first lineup DDR5 memory over the next year.

“We are looking forward to unveiling our latest DDR5 portfolio and have made significant investments into enabling the upcoming launch,” said Kingston. “By early sourcing of components during a global shortage to enhance our production infrastructure with the latest DDR5 platforms, we are able to support high volume demand. From the partner level through to the end-user, Kingston Is With You, and here to take the lead with the next generation of memory.”

Kingston also plans to provide over 10,000 DDR5 UDIMM samples to several major motherboard manufacturers and technology partners to help push the launch of the new DDR5-based platforms. According to Kingston, it wants to help lay down the foundation for the successful launch of these new platforms by supporting partners early.

The company recently announced that it successfully retained its position as the top third-party DRAM module supplier in the world, marking the 18th consecutive year Kingston has held the title.
