Deal of the day: you won’t believe how cheap this Crucial DDR5 memory has gotten

Better value than DDR4!

We’ve picked out some corking deals this past week, but today’s discovery is surely the most astonishing. Scouring the shelves for DDR5 memory has unearthed a Crucial 16GB module for a mere £25.

That’s comfortably the lowest price we’ve ever seen, and it means you can put together a 32GB configuration for just £50. Remarkably, that’s less than the cost of a DDR4 kit, and absolutely puts to bed the notion DDR5 is a hinderance to next-generation adoption.

Crucial’s on-sale memory is listed as 60 per cent off at Amazon UK, and while DDR5-4800 is not the quickest in terms of sheer speed, it represents a tremendous deal for users on a new platform prioritising capacity and value over frequency. Heck, grab four of these modules for a 64GB setup and you’ll be set for a good few years.

Putting pricing into perspective, the very same module was fetching £128 this time last year. That’s an epic 80 per cent reduction in the space of 12 months, and goes to show there are still deals worth knowing about in these times of rampant inflation.

Memory, on the whole, has become far more accessible as DRAM prices continue to tumble. Those yet to make the transition to DDR5 can find similarly enticing deals on DDR4, where 32GB (2x16GB) kits of DDR4-3600 are routinely available for under £70.
