Review: DDR5 SK Hynix A-die 32 GB 5600B dual rank


After a series of tests of DDR5 memory kits, most recently with the test of a Kingston Fury Renegade 6400 MT/s CL32 kit, today we focus on the future of DDR5, with two kits equipped with Hynix A-die chips. The first one today is a kit, or rather a batch of two 32 GB strips each in dual rank. The second test will come later on the single rank version of two 16 GB bars each.

We are here on the first bars available for purchase (in China), designed and manufactured directly by SK Hynix. It will be very difficult to buy them without contact on the spot and we will have to wait for the next batch in production. But count around 400 € for a 2×16 GB kit and about 50% more for a 2X32 GB kit.

Here, no XMP, but only JEDEC profiles peaking at 5600 Mt/s CL46 for 1,1V with the promise to reach never seen frequencies and performances (we have seen 7800 Mt/s CL32 here in 2×16 GB).

As CornerJack is not testing this kit, I could not compare it to other previously tested kits. However, we leave you free to look at it and compare it with the results obtained on its Z690 APEX. SK Hynix ddr5 A die 2x32 GB kit

Small summary of the kits previously tested by Cornerjack :

Although this is not a comparative test, we did run a kit with an XMP 6000 Mt/s CL40 so you can get an idea of the gain of dual rank vs single rank. A detailed article will be published in the future to shed light on the A-die SR vs A-die DR.

So, a little comment on the choice of the unit for the memory frequency. For several months now, manufacturers and many of our colleagues no longer use MHz to talk about the frequency of the memory. Either some use MT/s or Mbps. For our part, we will switch to MT/s at the moment while waiting to see what the new standard will be.
