On the TeamGroup website it says 16GBx2 instead of the 8GBx2 you reported here!
"The initial launch of TEAMGROUP ELITE DDR5 memory module will support 16GBx2 of capacity at a frequency of 4800MHz, with a voltage of 1.1V CL40-40-40-77"
I'm confused by all this!

That's what you get when writers don't conduct due diligence just to get a flashy byline. Good reporters and writers are a dying breed.

Cheaper than I expected… lets see…
The performance of these kits is likely to be worse than many DDR4 kits available for under $100. That CL40 latency is likely to kill any performance gains the higher frequency brings. That works out to close to 17ns of absolute latency, much higher than that of reasonably-priced DDR4-3600 kits with latencies in the 9-12ns range. The mere 33% frequency gain over commonly available DDR4-3600 is likely to be outweighed by the even higher latencies. DDR5-4800 will be a bit like like what DDR4-2133 was to the current generation of RAM. Not exactly worth paying a huge premium for.

I don't see anything about pricing listed on that page though, so it's hard to say if they are referring to the same kit. Realistically, I would expect them to offer this RAM in both 2x8GB and 2x16GB kits, among others. But even 32GB for $400 would be excessive if the performance doesn't match that of DDR4 kits of the same capacity available for less than half the price.
