Base specs for the upcoming GeIL DDR5 kits include 16 GB capacity per module, 4800 MHz speeds and CL40 timings. The overclockable modules will come with higher specs: 6 GHz CL32-36-36, 6.4 GHz CL32, 6.8 GHz CL36-44-44, and 7.2 GHz CL36. There will be RGB as well as non-RGB variants with black PCB and capacities will eventually go up to 32 GB per module.

DDR5 RAM support will be available later this year with the introduction of Intel’s Alder Lake platform and all the relevant memory kit producers are gearing up to offer products featuring the new standard. GeIL is the latest producer to present its DDR5 RAM lineup with the recent announcement of the overclockable Polaris kits.

The GeIL Polaris DDR5 kits will feature 16 GB capacities with 8 DRAM chips per PCB at first, but there will also be 32 GB per module later on for quad module kits with up to 128 GB capacities. GeIL will provide base spec modules with 4800 MHz speeds, CL40-40-40 latencies and 1.1V voltages, together with faster modules that can also be overclocked. The OC modules include variants with 6 GHz speeds and CL32-36-36 latencies, 6.4 GHz speeds CL32 timings, 6.8 GHz speeds with CL36-44-44 latencies, plus 7.2 GHz speeds with CL36 timings. Design-wise, the modules come with metallic silver heatsinks that may include an RGB diffuser at the top, while the PCB is black, iintegrating a PMIC for increased power efficiency and lower voltages.

All these modules are expected to launch in Q4 2021, yet GeIL, like all the other RAM makers, is not mentioning anything about pricing. Since the performance is supposed to be at least doubled from current DDR4 modules, we might have to pay quite the premium for the next-gen standard.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
