Shenzhen Longsys Electronics Co. Ltd isn’t a name that would immediately ring a bell, but the China-based memory maker recently came into focus after news about its romp with the next-generation DDR5 memory surfaced. On top of that, it was tested at a frequency of 6400MHz.
According to Tom’s Hardware, Longsys currently has two DDR5-6400 RAM modules in the works; a 16GB variant with a single-rank design and a 32GB model with a dual-rank design. Regardless of design, both variations feature an eight-layer PCB, have CAS Latency (CL) of 40, and requires only 1.1V to operate.
Based on Longsys’ data, its DDR5-6400 RAM showed as much as 64% gains over the current DDR4 memory standard in the Master Lu benchmark, but to be fair, it was not made clear as to what frequency the DDR4 memory was running on.
What is interesting to note is that the system Longsys appears to be using to test its DDR5 RAM is an unreleased Intel 12th generation Alder Lake-S system. It’s not all that surprising, given that the Alder Lake-S is currently the only chipset so far that claims to support DDR5 and as it stands, AMD is still keeping mum about its next generation of Ryzen’s capabilities.
That said, it should also be pointed out that Longsys isn’t the first company to announce its entry into the realm of DDR5. Another Chinese memory maker, Asgard, recently announced its own 64GB DDR5-4800 RAM solution and in capacities of 64GB.
