Kingston is still releasing DDR3 for older gaming PCs despite DDR5 RAM’s arrival

DDR5 RAM is available for purchase now, but it will be more prevalent when Intel releases the Alder Lake compatible CPUs at the end of 2012. Many PCs will still use DDR4 RAM until then. Kingston recognizes that DDR3 RAM will be popular, so the brand is releasing new modules for both.

Both RGB and non-RGB versions of the new DDR4 modules can be ordered. They have clock speeds up to 4,600MHz or 5,333MHz, respectively. This is faster than Teamgroup’s entry-level DDR5 RAM. The DDR3 kit, which does not include RGB lighting, is slightly less impressive at 1,833MHz. Nevertheless, it’s still surprising to see new equipment for the 14-year old memory in 2021. And it is a gaming-focused one.

Gaming PCs will continue to pack the third-generation memory. However, it’s unlikely that there will be a shortage of them, especially when you consider that most older computers are still running the older standard. DDR4 RAM was introduced to computers in late 2014 when Intel’s Haswell-E range of high-end processors arrived. Unfortunately, AMD did not support this standard until 2017.

DDR3 RAM can still run the most demanding PC games on a budget build when paired with a CPU like the Intel Core i7–4770K or a decent GPU. If you still have an older gaming computer with DDR3 RAM, Kingston’s latest modules may be the perfect solution.
