DDR5 has become virtually unobtainable

That it has become increasingly difficult to assemble a new PC is an established fact, especially if you decide to opt for a high-end Alder Lake platform.

To the difficulties in finding video cards at a human price and 12th generation Intel Core CPUs (12700K and 12900K), are added those relating to the lack of presence on the market of the new DDR5 memories.

We expected that the availability of DDR5 memory was low, at least initially, but the situation seems to be worse than expected and it turns out that the fault lies with the PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit), present on all DDR5 modules, which has become practically unobtainable. as reported by 12chip.

As if that were not enough, the current price of a PMIC chip has increased by about 10 times, which translates into mind-boggling figures for new memories, regardless of the frequencies and the particularity of the modules.

It appears that the time it takes for manufacturers to receive PMICs for DDR5 is at least 35 weeks, which is why this shortage could last until mid-2022.
