It is encouraging to see items like Sabrent’s Rocket DDR5 join the market as DDR5 continues to find its way into more and more of the best gaming PCs. Sabrent, which is best known for its storage devices, has maintained its tradition of high quality with its 16GB and 32GB Rocket DDR5 RAM module lineup. It doesn’t quite have the absurd rates of the very finest RAM for gaming, with a claimed clock speed of 4800MHz. For instance, the Corsair Dominator Platinum features 6000MHz right out of the box. Nevertheless, the Rocket DDR5 compares favorably to Corsair’s Vengeance DDR5 and is reasonably priced to do so.
In comparison to DDR4 choices, it’s still pretty expensive at $179.99 / £145 (for 16GB). Is Sabrent’s most recent feat of rocket science financially worthwhile given the next generation’s increased efficiency?
