The Crucial DDR5 Pro Memory is an overclocking-capable memory module that optimises power, performance and latency, making it ideal for gaming. The company claims that its Overclocking module edition comes with 25% lower latency compared with the previous edition, namely, Crucial DDR5 Pro Memory Plug and Play. Additionally, the origami-inspired aluminium heat spreader and high frame rate support of 1080p and 1440p of the module make it ideal for a variety of gaming rigs.

This memory module is available in 16GB providing speeds up to 6,000MT/s. Moreover, the module is compatible with the latest DDR5 Intel and AMD CPUs, supporting both Intel XMP 3.0 and AMD EXPO specifications.

Micron Benefits from Expanding Product Portfolio

Micron continues to expand its product offerings for gaming and content industries with recent launches, including Gen5 Consumer NVMe SSD and Plug-and-Play High-Performance DRAM. In July 2023, it introduced Crucial X9 Pro and X10 Pro Portable SSDs, followed by Crucial T500 SSD in October 2023, featuring PCIe 4.0 NVMe and Micron's advanced 232-layer 3D NAND technology.

Additionally, Micron boasts an extensive array of products tailored for PCs, servers and the smartphone sector, encompassing both DRAM and NAND offerings. DRAM chips serve as pivotal elements in PCs and servers, whereas NAND flash chips play a critical role in smartphones and solid-state drives. MU's presence in the SSD storage market is steadily broadening.

Management foresees accelerated 5G adoption, the rise of foldable smartphones and forthcoming advancements in AR/VR contributing to continued content growth and bolstering smartphone sales throughout the year. Micron's SSD-based offerings are capitalizing on the trend of thinner laptops and tablets, which has cultivated favorable market conditions for SSDs. This is positioning them favourably in the market.
