Ryzen 7000 CPU release could sort out DDR5 memory price stalemate
Company expects prices to fall
When AMD revealed its Ryzen 7000 CPUs at Computex 2022 there were questions from the floor about how it expects to sell when DDR5 costs about as much as a gold-plated Bugatti Veyron.
AMD says it doesn’t expect pricing to be an issue once launch rolls around.
The outfit’s Director of technical marketing Robert Hallock said the company is “all-in on DDR5” and the “supply looks really good.”
The memory vendors are bullish about being able to enable our supply forecast for the year, for next year. And so we don’t see any real challenges here with pricing.
Most experts say that DDR5 prices will drop throughout 2022 even if they are much more pricey that DDR4. The reason is that there are very few boards out there which support the new technology. When Intel released Alder Lake it decided to supports both DDR4 and DDR5 memory which meant that price-conscious users ignored the expensive upgrade.
