DDR5: New memory is nowhere in stock

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.

This is especially annoying for the PC players who want to put together a new computer with Intels 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.

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.
