China begins mass-producing its own DDR5 DRAM memory

Jiahe Jinwei, one of the four largest memory chip manufacturers in China, announced that it has received the first batch of DDR5 memory chips from Micron in order to start mass production of its own DRAM memory modules, thus being the first Chinese company to mass-produce DDR5 memory, although it was at the end of 2020 when it had already started trial production. Other Chinese manufacturers, such as Asgard, showed their DDR5 @ 4800 MHz RAM memory last February, although they have not yet been able to start mass production.

With this announcement, the company will be ready to sell its memory kits by the end of the year, coinciding with the launch of Intel Alder Lake processors, which will be the first consumer platform to take advantage of the benefits of this memory.

It must be remembered that the main differences between DDR5 and DDR4 memory are power consumption, capacity, frequency, which are already ECC memories. This means that DDR5 memory has a relatively lower power consumption, greater stability and security, and will allow the creation of memory sticks of 512 GB capacity @ 8400 MHz, yes, due to the prices that will be handled, it is more than clear that its purpose is linked to data centers and servers.
