Even if Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake-S hybrid CPUs officially only support DDR5-4800 RAM in dual channel, standards such as the DDR5-8000, which is already in the test flight, are already in place with the help of the in-house RAM optimizer Intel XMP 3.0 and expect more.

DDR5-8000 already being tested

The 12th generation of the Core-i series, alias Alder Lake-S, supports DDR4 and DDR5 in the respectively highest memory standard specified by JEDEC, DDR4-3200 and DDR5-4800. Now the Twitter user has @hw_reveal First published screenshots showing DDR5-8000 with 50 clock cycle latency.

The 2 × 16 GB RAM ran on a Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Tachyon using Intel XMP 3.0 with DDR5-8000 CL50-50-50-100-150 2T in dual channel and flanked an Alder Lake-S specified with 125 watt TDP, in which it is likely to be the upcoming spearhead of the portfolio, the Core i9-12900K.

As early as mid-September, screenshots from the storage benchmark of the AIDA64 suite from @ harukaze5719 published that show a CPU of the type Alder Lake-S with DDR5-6400 in the test flight. Specifications for future mainboards that are to be written out with support for the fast memory also point to at least DDR5-6400.

8,000 MT / s is not the end of the story

With the corresponding memory ICs, as they have already promised Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron, whose fastest memory chips will roll off the production line as 1α-DRAM in the new and even more efficient 1-alpha (1α) manufacturing process, will also be used later OC modules with DDR5-9600, DDR5-10200 and more for overclocking and gamers appear.

At the launch of the Intel Core i-12000, which is rumored to take place on November 4th and shortly thereafter, DDR5-4800, -5600 and -6400 are expected to be available. It is not yet possible to say whether DDR5-8000 or -8400 and more will also be implemented in the near future. At the start, such high-speed memory is likely to be a very expensive exception.
