Silicon Power 2x16GB DDR5 4800MHz C40 Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2022-12-19

The DDR5 4800MHz kit from Silicon Power represents its point of entrance within the new RAM standard and does not include either a heatsink or RGB lighting. In terms of performance, we can squeeze some extra by raising the frequency to 5400MHz, while working with a voltage of 1.25, still fine to be used without extra cooling.

Product Features:

Harness The Power of DDR5

Taking speed, capacity, and reliability even further, the cutting-edge technology of this DDR5 module gives that next-level edge for your system's performance. With aggressive speeds of 4800MHz, it's 1.5x faster than standard 3200MHz DDR4 to provide multi-core CPUs with extreme responsiveness and the power to multi-task seamlessly.

Greater Power Efficiency

Even with all its extra power, this DDR5 module improves upon its predecessor with on-module voltage regulation. A power management integrated circuit (PMIC) reduces the burden on the motherboard control and results in a lower voltage of 1.1V versus 1.2V for DDR4 for even less power consumption.

No Need to Keep Tabs on Your Tabs

Compared to DDR4's 16GB chip unit capacity, this DDR5 module doubles that number to 32GB by packing in more banks and bank groups. This allows for more pages to be open at a time so you can increase your productivity without worrying about your system slowing down from having too many tabs open at once.

Higher Computing Performance

That's not all that's doubled – the minimum burst length on this DDR5 module is up to 16, up from 8 for DDR4. This improves data bus efficiency, providing twice the data on the bus, and consequently reduces the number of reads/writes to access the same cache data line.

Less Room for Error

This DDR5 module introduces On-Die ECC (Error Correction Code), a new feature that was designed to correct bit errors in real-time within the DRAM chip. By doing so, this advanced technology keeps your system reliably stable while automatically correcting data errors.

2 Channels are Better Than 1

For even greater performance, this DDR5 module features two independent 32-bit channels per module. Compared to DDR4's single channel, splitting it into two increases efficiency and lowers the latencies of data accesses for the memory controller to promote optimized efficiency.
