1. Introduction / Retail Package
Crucial, as a major memory manufacturer, tries not only to present products for entry-level users but also for gamers/creators. We have already tested the Crucial DDR5-5600 memory kit and since Crucial also offers another PRO series of DDR5 Pro Memory, today we will take a look as well, at what the PRO series has to offer compared with the normal "non-PRO" series.
Low-profile heat spreader
Dissipate module heat and enhance your gaming rig with a sleek, modern look. With our integrated low-profile heat spreader, Crucial DDR5 Pro can even fit in smaller PCs.
Supports Intel® XMP 3.0 and AMD EXPO™ on the same module
Achieve easy performance recovery on CPUs that suppress rated memory speeds with Intel® XMP 3.0 or AMD EXPO2 turned on in the UEFI/BIOS settings. Get the full value of your investment without overpaying for performance.
No-fuss memory for gaming rigs
1.75x faster than DDR4 to boost in-game frame rates and eliminate screen tears. Enhance your gaming rigs with our sleek design without the fuss of chasing B/E-die, LEDs or the risks associated with overclocking speeds and tuning latency.
Improved productivity for creatives and professionals
With 2x the bandwidth of the previous generation, Crucial DDR5 Pro enables next-level multitasking and faster processing so you can tackle even heavy workloads in less time.
Micron quality and reliability
As one of only three global memory manufacturers, and with 45 years of memory expertise, Micron delivers cutting-edge engineering and superior component and module-level testing for all Crucial DRAM products.

The DDR5-5600 2X16GB Kit Pro can be bought online at Crucial.com at $89.99, which is a good price for DDR5-rated memory. 32GB of DDR5 is the de facto standard for today's PC systems, and if you are working with Photoshop and other "creator" software you should consider upgrading to 64GB. The Crucial DDR5-5600 Pro series can be bought up to 48GB (2x24), 64GB (2x32), and 96GB (48GBx2) with the following retail prices, at least at the time of this writing:
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 second hand product is the retail package is in perfect shape.
The 32GB kit, includes 2x16GB modules that are totally blacked with a matt finish and a low profile spreader. All eight Micron 16Gbit memory chips are located on one side of the PCB by a single-rank configuration. There are no heat spreaders or RGB lighting. At the front, you will only find the Crucial and DDR5 Pro logos
, while at the back there are more labels with product speed, cache latency, and 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.
