Hello team, I am planning to build a new PC.
My question is whether to buy DDR4 RAM or wait for DDR5 RAM. Is 3200 MHz enough for gaming, surfing, and a bit of editing like Photoshop and video editing? Are there any compatibility issues with Intel or AMD CPUs? I haven’t made up my mind which CPU to choose.
Thank you so much!
You seem a little ahead of the market, but I’ll try my best to answer that. As you mentioned above, DDR5 is shipped by both Micron and Samsung and SK Hynix, but not in our typical desktop PC form factors.
Instead, it has been released in RDIMM for servers and HPC platforms and offers a performance increase of 85% with increased reliability. In addition, DDR5 is now being delivered to server markets. It won’t be long before we see it on the desktop, maybe with Intel Rocket Lake?
As mentioned above, no current CPU supports DDR5, not even the current Zen 3 range from AMD. It should be noted here that AMD’s chiplet design can be easily updated if necessary and a DDR5 memory controller can be added. However, new motherboards that electrically meet the DDR5 specification are required.
If you’re building now, choose DDR4, 3600 MHz or higher, especially if you’re using AMD, and I would personally recommend 4000 MHz for modern systems.
