Crucial has announced a brand-new specification for its DDR5 memory portfolio. While the standard capacities are 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB, the latest computer memory module sits between 8 GB and 16 GB. That is, the new SODIMM RAM features 12 GB of capacity. As per the Amazon listing, it debuts on March 31.

Although DDR5 computer memory launched in standard 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB module configs, Intel and AMD later offered support for non-binary modules. With that, we started to see the launch of non-standard options such as 42 GB and 24 GB RAM. It seems like another non-standard option will soon be available in the market, which will offer 12 GB capacity.

The first computer memory to support the 12 GB capacity appears to be the Crucial SODIMM RAM, which will default to 5600 MT/s speed. However, the product description of the memory module says that it works in 4800 MT/s and 5200 MT/s modes too. It basically depends on what speed the computer can work with.

While the initial listing of the 12 GB memory module is for laptops, Crucial is expected to release the same RAM capacity sticks for desktops. As for the price, the 12 GB laptop RAM stick is currently listed at $38.99 on Amazon, while a 24 GB kit (2 x 12 GB) is $70.99.

Crucial hasn’t yet put the 12 GB computer memory module specifications on its website. But that shouldn’t take long for the manufacturer. After all, the RAM is already up on Amazon, with the listing revealing that the memory will be available on March 31. You can learn more about non-binary modules from the video attached below.
