1. Introduction / Retail Package
Crucial keeps updating its DDR5 lineup and recently we noticed a new product offer, the Crucial DDR5 Pro 48GB with 6000MHz CL46 with 1.1V that really made us want to test the fastest-ever DDR5 from Crucial. The Crucial DDR5 Pro Memory comes with a low-profile heat spreader with a matte black finish that can fit in most cases/motherboards, even in small factor systems.Crucial offers both Intel XMP 3.0 and AMD EXPO on the same module, making it a truly universal product for all users.

The DDR5-6000 memory speed modules are currently offered at the 48GB (2x24GB) Kit and can be bought online at Crucial.com for $166.99, making a rather expensive module for the capacity. The Crucial Pro 64GB Kit (2x32GB) DDR5-5600 costs $148.99 so the 48GB DDR5 kit is higher priced, probably due to its higher running speeds. The retail package follows the traditional packing with a carton box and plastic blister package for transportation hazards. In order to remove the product you need to cut down the package, meaning you won't get a secondhand product if the retail package is in perfect shape.
The 48GB kit, includes 2x24GB modules that are totally blacked with a matt finish and a low profile spreader. At the front, users will see the Crucial and DDR5 Pro logo, while there is no RGB lighting.
, while at the back there are more labels with product speed, cache latency, and product serial number.
Installing the modules at a DDR5-enabled motherboard is not hard, just keep in mind the side with the memory modules should look like the CPU cooler. The low-profile heatspreaders make the modules compliant with JEDEC specs and you can use those modules are any mini ATX system. The overall build quality is great and you cannot go wrong with Crucial, since it has been one of the biggest memory manufacturers for many years. Due to the high bus efficiency of DDR5 technology, you can expect efficiency improvements that provide 36% more system bandwidth than DDR4.
