Type Synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM)
Release date 2019 estimated[1]
Predecessor DDR4 SDRAM

DDR5 SDRAM, in computing interface development, is the abbreviation for the fifth generation of Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory. DDR5 is planned to reduce power consumption once again, while doubling bandwidth and capacity relative to DDR4 SDRAM.[2]

A 2016 presentation by Intel suggested a JEDEC plan to release a 2016 DDR5 SDRAM specification, with the memory being available for end user purchase in 2020.[3]

In March 2017, JEDEC announced its plan for the DDR5 specification release in 2018.[4] JEDEC's Server Forum 2017[5][6] claimed a date to offer a DDR5 SDRAM preview on June 19, 2017 accompanied by a DDR5 SDRAM Workshop on October 31 – November 1, 2017.[7] Rambus announced a working DDR5 RAM prototype in September 2017, with availability not expected until 2018 3 Quarter.[1]
