At COMPUTEX 2023, Kingston showcased its latest products including the non-binary DDR5 memory, XS1000 External SSD, Industrial SD card, Data Center solutions and more.

Non-Binary DDR5 Memory

Up until the DDR4 memory interface, we were used to binary memory configurations. I.e., in capacities of 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64 GB. Non-binary memory on the other hand are available in 24, 48 and 96 GB instead of exponentially increasing the capacity at a power of 2. This might seem nothing special but this new configuration allows gamers, system builders and enterprises to save money – something that the DDR5 package could do due to its design.
