The hardware market continues to be overlapping with incredible prices and short availability. Meanwhile, no longer only the coveted console flagships such as PS5 and Xbox Series X as well as the popular graphics cards of NVIDIA and AMD are affected, but also further coveted technology. Now it gets the brand new DDR5 memory.
DDR5: New memory is nowhere available
Gamers just have anything but easy. Due to the hardware crisis, not only Next-Gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X are in short supply, also important PC hardware like current graphics cards are just about utopian prices.
But it is getting worse: Anyone looking at the availability of DDR5 memory will be detected that the new RAM type is sold out everywhere. The hardware crisis has found a new victim.

This is especially annoying for the PC players who want to put together a new computer with Intel’s current I processors of the twelfth generation. The chips are among the first desktop models that support DDR5 RAM at all can also be operated with DDR4 memory.
After all, the low range of DDR5 memory does not seem to cause an immediate price increase in the old DDR4 RAM. The prices remain stable — at least so far.

When is the hardware crisis survived?
AMD boss Lisa SU currently assumes that hardware demand will still exceed the offer at least until the summer of the next year. Whether you can really count on an improvement, is currently still in the stars.

Even with consoles, it is likely to take a while for the bottleneck to be overcome. The PS5 and Xbox Series X remain in short supply — and even Nintendo is now that there will be problems with the Nintendo Switch at the end of the year. Only the Xbox Series S (look at Amazon) also seems to be in stock in most dealers.
