The article may not be the clearest. But, the chart shows the ROG Maximus with DDR5 (and some other non-ROG models) and the ROG Strix with DDR4 (and some other non-ROG models).Yeah, no early adoption for me,
My guess is that you're all going to want DDR5 as soon as the first XMP-rated kits hit the market with higher voltage ratings than standard.
My guess is that you're all not going to want to pay the price for for said RAM. (see also every subsequent DDR release in the past 15 years).
Especially since (historically), early revision sticks aren't going to be speed demons and will likely have less raw performance in some areas than higher end DDR4 once you factor in the latency. There's always been an early adopter tax with new revision DDR memory. I see no reason this is going to change with DDR5. Waiting it out 6 months to a year (second gen DDR5 platforms) isn't a terrible idea.
If that ends up being the case, I would hold off on the upgrade altogether. It doesn't make sense to me to wait for ADL and then buy a mobo that locks you into DDR4.
Only real high end motherboard I've ever owned was the EVGA SR2 back when I was really [H] into Distributed Computing. With that said, I'm getting ready to buy a $390 X570S board which I guess is mid-range these days.I've ever bought a top end mobo, the value just isn't there
