DDR5 RAM is supposedly right around the corner, and Intel’s upcoming Ice Lake successor may be one of the first CPUs to support it. A submission spotted at the Eurasian Economic Comission (EEC) suggests that Tiger Lake-U will be compatible with LPDDR5 memory. LPDDR5 has a ceiling of 6,400 Mbps, a healthy increase from today’s LPDDR4X standard (4,266 Mbps).
Memory industry leaders SK Hynix and Samsung have shared goals of rolling out -DDR5 RAM by the end of this year. So it’s feasible for Tiger Lake-U, which is scheduled for release next year, to leverage new LPDDR5 memory.
