Corsair Vengeance DDR5-5200 (32 GB): what extra performance to expect with a new generation of memory

Although DDR5 memories don’t make much sense for gamers yet, they can increase performance by up to 20% for content creators. In many demanding applications, the increase in performance against DDR4 is really interesting. In addition, they will certainly become the standard next year.

It is a sad tradition that newsrooms test products that you cannot buy. It started with graphics cards, continued through less accessible processors, and at the moment it also applies to DDR5 memory. You can’t buy any in the Czech Republic, none of the models are available. In Germany, they have a few kits in stock, but the selection is zero and the prices of those available are brutal. Perhaps this sad situation will soon be resolved, as DDR5 will be standard for AMD next year and their sales will certainly be high. The new computers will already be with DDR5.

At the moment, DDR5 is not an absolute necessity, you can also buy boards for Alder Lake with DDR4. Many tests have shown that in many applications, DDR4 is a better choice. However, most of these tests focused on regular and gaming deployments, and no one looked at applications that could really benefit from quick memories. There are dozens of such tests (games and common applications) on the web, and I recognize that for purebred players, DDR4 is a better choice at the moment. For content creators and professionals who can handle the number of Alder Lake cores, DDR5 is a more interesting choice. In many applications, significantly better performance can be achieved than with DDR4.

Corsair offers many DDR5 memories in two model lines. The highest series is DOMINATOR Platinum with a maximum speed of DDR5-6400 MHz. The price for 32 GB should be 10,000 crowns. In reality (only on eBay) it is more than doubled. I’m testing a cheaper Vengeance DDR5-5200 MHz series. You should be sold for 8000 crowns with tax. Unfortunately, I did not find them anywhere in stock, so I do not know the real price. When they are available, I will definitely bet them over 10,000 crowns.
