Kingston, at their private suite during Computex, has shown the FURY CAMM2 memory modules.

CAMM2 is short for Compression Attached Memory Module, offering thinner dimensions compared to SO-DIMMs along with better performance and power efficiency thanks to its single PCB plane design. CAMM2 on itself is a dual-channel memory so you don’t have to worry about another stick to activate the feature. Initially a Dell proprietary design, CAMM2 has been introduced to JEDEC as a new industry standard for mobile memory

CAMM2 will be available in DDR5 and LPDDR5X variants – with the latter appearing as the soldered model for more physically constrained devices.

Now the FURY Impact CAMM2 we’ve seen were installed on MSI (Project Zero) and ASUS (Lengshuikeng) motherboards. I am not sure why Kingston decided to showcase them on ATX motherboards as I find ITX or SFF systems a much better form factor for demonstration.

Anyway, these runs at DDR5-5600 so not exactly the fastest DDR5 around by desktop standards. However, it is theoretically able to go faster compared to LO-DIMM and SO-DIMMs due to its design so expect record breaking specs once the CAMM2 standard gets its much needed attention and development.

Kingston told us that they are aiming to release CAMM2 modules in 32 GB and 64 GB capacities, with 128 GB and 256 GB still in consideration.
