    SK Hynix is showing details on their first DDR5 chip. The standard is officially still under development by Jedec, but seems to make an appearance soon enough.....

    When considering new computer, is there something that a general PC gamer (no integrated graphics) would want to wait for in regards to DDR5?

    in the typical worlk loads you do not really care you mostly care to have enough if far more important sure though there are workloads that benefit but if you need fast ram for em you are already aware for em :p

    Compatibility. I'd bet that'll be the only significant factor. Zen 2/Ryzen 3 will have a DDR4 memory controller, so it's likely Zen 2+ will as well. But there's no guarantee Zen 3 will. On the Intel side it doesn't matter as much since those scumbags try to force you to buy new motherboards every pseudo-generation anyway.

    I hope we would see powerful APUs from AMD and DDR 5 4000mhz RAM...
