Crucial to Release 12 GB SO-DIMM DDR5 Memory Modules for Laptops

In a recent development, Crucial plans to roll out 12 GB SO-DIMM DDR5 memory modules, catering primarily for laptops—a non-standard capacity within the industry. The unexpected advanced product was spotted in the Amazon database.

Evolution of DDR5 RAM Modules

Initially, DDR5 RAM modules were manufactured in three capacities: 8, 16, and 32 GB. However, a year after their release, Intel and AMD included support for 24 and 48 GB memory modules in their updated platforms. Manufacturers have recently begun to produce larger 64 GB RAM modules catering to enthusiasts. This has expanded the capacity of a standard home system to incorporate 256 GB of RAM. The market will soon welcome a new addition – 12 GB memory modules. However, this pertains exclusively to SO-DIMM modules for laptops and compact PCs that support this type of RAM.
