DDR5 die type

I was curious as to how to access the die type of the GSkill 8400 memory kit so I downloaded and installed thaiphoon burner and Rammon. Neither give me the die type. I think it's M die by Hynix but where do you access that information? Had to allow SPD detect in the bios with TB.

I've got AIDA 64 Extreme installed and I can't see it there either. Also not in OCCT, MemTweakIt, MemTest64, iCUE, CPU-Z or HWMonitor. Apart from HWInfo, which doesn't work for you, I can't think where else to try looking. I have looked in Device Manager as well, but I can't see RAM listed as any type of 'device' 🤔

HWInfo seems to be the only place where die type is listed (for some of us anyway). I bet there is some software that will tell you, but I'm out of ideas. 

I've read that some RAM sticks have a code on the sticker that relates to the die type, but it's not in plain English. Perhaps you get can some info about how to decode those numbers and letters for your RAM?

Otherwise, maybe the only option is to ask G-Skill after giving them the stick serial numbers.

Oh I don’t know. I just wanted something to affirm the designation I am reading about. It’s not a big deal really. I just read B-die or M-die and would like to know how to access that information. Rammon and Thiaphoon burner didn’t help either. Thanks for the reply!! Much appreciated.

My HWiNFO64 also tells me no die information M or A.

With Gskill there's a code on the label - the last letter in the code. It's not a serial number or part number. Maybe we can call it a die number? 🤔

I don't know...

Hynix die.jpg20230308_115137.jpg

-S830A = Micron 16Gbit A-Die (Q1)
-S82*A = Hynix 16Gbit A-Die (Q1)
-S82*M = Hynix 16Gbit M-Die (Q1)
-S810B = Samsung 16Gbit B-Die (Q1)

Good 'ol stickers. Old tech is the best.

A = A die

B = B die

M = M die

🤣 Simples, good job Bruce.

I only purchased two DDR5 kits for all of Z790 - Raptor Lake and RLR, for both Apex Vanilla and Apex Encore and here they are:

Both Hynix A-die, both with letter A at the end of that "mysterious" code on the Gskill label. 😉

Not certain where the Apex Encore thread has gotten off to, lol.

But anyway, boy did I enjoy Z790 Raptor and RLR, it was the most fun I've had with a new hardware release since the ROG Maximus V Extreme build way back - summer of 2012. Both Apex boards were/are beautiful who would have ever thought a white Apex board would happen? Such a surprise and ROG made it work. DDR5 speeds simply exploded exponentially, what a surprise, and the i9 CPUs are monsters at getting work completed quickly. Raptor Lake was my very first i9 and 8core processor ever, planned on cooling the CPU 12months prior to it's arrival building a custom loop very short "processor only" and the Hardware Gods blessed me with a very sweet 13900KS high SP and super IMC, wow - still cannot believe it, first shot, and high Thermal Velocity Boost capable.

😀

Ended the series grabbing a 4080 Super and more recently a 4070 Super for BOTH ROG Apex boards, they're stunning cards full black-out so gorgeous mounted on Apex Vanilla and Apex Encore.

So sorry, these photos are very poor quality, need to pick up a real camera (like Sir John's) for hardware pics instead of a potato phone.

Thank you ROG for making Z790 so successful and enjoyable. 😍

With the 2x24GB kits G.SKILL Trident Z5 8000, 8200 and 8400 modules they used two versions of Hynix 3G M DIE, namely native DDR5-6400 MHBD and native DDR5-5600 MGBD. You do not need software identification, use the numbers above the barcode on the sticker shown below. 820M = Hynix M DIE, 64 = 6400MHz which would be the MHBD ICs.

But that’s going to be difficult if you forget to look before you install it. 🙂

Hey I just said that about the Gskill sticker. lolol 🤣

How's it goin' Braegnok bro? Are ya clearing out older gear to purchase Apex Z890? 

I'm planning on being a Super-Bencher for Z890 as in - sitting it out on the bench. lolol I'll watch youz guyz have all the Z890 fun. 😎

And that story this week about Z990 Panther Lake launching July 2025 just over 12months away - that's mobile Mr. Pat is talking about not Panther Lake-S for desktop. We won't see PTL-S CPUs and the Z990 Apex board until November 2025, and the KS chip January 2026. 🍕
