  • Almost.

  • Ow.

  • Samsung will be launching 32Gb DDR5 memory in early 2023, with modules to follow in late 2023.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Not sure exactly why there's such a lead time between the chips and the modules, but it's pretty consistent with past launches.

    This will mean 64GB DIMMs for desktops and laptops, so desktops (and servers based on desktop systems) will be able to go up to 256GB of RAM and laptops that use modules rather than soldered-in RAM will go to 128GB.

    That assumes that the memory controllers in existing CPUs properly support the new capacity.  They should - the DDR5 spec list chip sizes up to 64Gb - but it's a bit hard to test until the chips are actually out.
