About this deal
Finally, we take a look at War Thunder and here we're seeing pretty impressive performance gains at 1080p, though how useful a 24% performance boost is when you're already over 200 fps is hard to argue about. Still, even at 4K we're looking at up to a 9% performance boost. Based on those figures, DDR5 does very little to aid the Core i9-12900K across a wide range of today's games.
VENGEANCE® 32GB (2x16GB) DDR5 DRAM 6400MHz C32 Memory Kit — Black
As for DDR5, there's little point investing in it right now unless you simply want the best of the best, at which point you're going for 6000+ spec memory which costs roughly the same amount as the 12900K processor. We see little reason to go with the more affordable 4800 to 5600 memory if you're gaming, especially given you're probably going to be GPU limited more often than not. The idea of this test is not to take a few premium kits and then manually adjust timings and frequencies, which is what we've done in the past. Instead we want to test memory kits you can actually buy and see how those perform and compare. We reached out to Corsair and submitted a long shopping list of kits that we wanted to test and they were gracious enough to help us out.
DDR5-6400 32GB RGB RAM Kit Review Kingston FURY Renegade DDR5-6400 32GB RGB RAM Kit Review
admin.brightcove.com, metrics.brightcove.com, players.brightcove.net, sadmin.brightcove.com, vjs.zencdn.netThe FURY Renegade 32GB 6400MT/s kit costs ₹21,700. The same kit at a lower speed of 6000MT/s costs ₹17,999. Without RGB, both kits comes ever cheaper. Spending ₹3,200 extra for around 1-2% performance is a decision one has to make for themselves. Comparing with other OEMs, there are hardly any competitors for the 6400MT/s variant. G.Skill offers 7200 CL34 RAM for around ₹26,000. That is a good ₹3,300 above the FURY Renegade. In perspective, only G.Skill has a competitive RAM. Testing PUGB shows a small improvement to the 1% lows with DDR5, about 5 - 7% so nothing to write home about. Meanwhile, the average frame rate remained much the same, so either memory technology will allow you to squeeze the most out of an Alder Lake CPU in this game. The CAS latency or CL timings are only part of the equation, so you can't judge RAM's performance based on the CL timings alone, which is why a lot of people have been confused by DDR5 and it's seemingly high CL figures. Memory speed (frequency) and the CL timings (latency) play a critical role in system performance.
DDR5-6400 RAM Benchmarks Show Major Performance Gains Over
Things have changed now, for the better that is. DDR5 is now well into its second-generation. The latest generation of CPUs from both AMD and Intel support DDR5, along with their accompanying motherboards. So, a more accepting ecosystem works in favor of DDR5. Prices of DDR5 RAM kits, while still being on the higher side, are slightly more reachable to the mainstream consumer. Supply has increased steadily. However, we still feel that more options would have been better, RAM producers themselves have been slow to catch up to the DDR5 train. DDR5 again didn't do much to improve 1% lows but the average frame rate was increased 5%, even with the 4800 spec kit. clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 54-75-41-190_s-23-203-249-81_ts-1604425120-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 54-75-41-190_s-23-203-249-81_ts-1604425189-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 54-75-41-190_s-23-203-249-81_ts-1604427540-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 54-75-41-190_s-23-203-249-90_ts-1604424875-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net, 54-75-41-190_s-23-203-249-90_ts-1604425270-clienttons-s.akamaihd.net,
Awards and Reviews
With DDR4 memory you ideally want to use gear 1 as you'd need to run the memory up around DDR5 speeds to offset the increased latency. With DDR4-2400, we're looking at a 40% increase in latency when switching from gear 1 to gear 2, and this is going to crippled performance in memory sensitive tasks, such as gaming. If we recalculate using the memory tested here, the Trident Z RGB, DDR4-3600 CL14 and DDR5-6000 CL36 we find a similar margin using the Core i9-12900K and Aorus Elite AX, basically DDR5 ends up costing 20% more. A few weeks ago we reviewed Intel's new Alder Lake architecture for the first time and with it we also got our first chance to play around with DDR5 memory. In our Core i9-12900K review, we tested both DDR4 and DDR5 memory in a range of applications and games, to find that the faster, more expensive memory offered little extra performance for the most part, and this was particularly true for gamers.
