PC memory enters a new era as we take a closer look at the Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR5 Memory
range. So then, what does the jump from DDR4 to DDR5 bring to the table? Well, you can probably guess the first part - faster speeds. Not only that but you’ve got better power efficiency and the ability to up the total capacity to the point where a PC with 1TB of DDR5 memory is possible. Not entirely feasible, but possible.
Memory or RAM is one of key components of a PC, it’s where data for all of your Chrome tabs are stored alongside anything else that makes switching between tasks and applications fast and seamless. Rated at 5200MHz (with this review testing the 64GB variant) any memory intensive task you can think of is handled in a way that’s substantially faster than anything we’ve ever seen outside of watching one of those videos where a few insane builders overclock their memory with liquid nitrogen.
Our Full Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR5 Memory Review
In terms of the Corsair Dominator range, well, you’re getting pure quality through and through. From the custom heatsink to the sturdy aluminium body to the RGB strip light action. It’s worth stating that these sticks are tall units, far taller than the DDR4 RAM we’re used to. Throw in a limited lifetime warranty and it’s all par for the course for Corsair - a company known for creating reliable memory modules for PC builds.
