The production of DDR5 memories is already suffering from a chip shortage


Suppliers are in serious slippage if we can believe the latest rumor.

With the introduction of Intel Alder Lake processors and the launch of the Z690 motherboards, the generational shift may finally begin, but there are indications that the DDR5 memory required for this may prove to be a shortage in the long run.

A 12chip for the new RAM manufacturers have been severely affected by the lack of one of the components.

The problem is caused by PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit) chips, which are said to be delivered by suppliers with a delivery time of only 35 weeks.

The situation is further aggravated by the fact that these little things are 10 times more expensive than their DDR4 counterparts, which is also reflected in consumer prices. Of course a 12chip report there was no question before that it was difficult and especially expensive to cut an ax into one who insists on the earliest possible generational change.

By the way, the main players in the hardware market, such as Intel, Nvidia and AMD, all agree that the chip shortage will not be significantly reduced in 2022 either, although Lisa Su, who conducts the latter, has twice said that it could improve somewhat by the end of next year. the situation.
