Who dictates when DDR5 comes out?

Who dictated when DDR4 came out?

DDR4 wasn't heralded as some revolutionary invention. It just kinda happened and became the norm.

Who gets to make those kinda decisions? And what's stopping anyone from releasing DDR5 anytime soon?

when the cpu companies see their sales fall, they introduce new products with new features. DDR5 will come out when DDR4 is well played out, and adding speed and core counts loses its impressive nature- id say 5-7 years, the next, next generation of new processors, since the XEN and kaby lake DDR4 gen just came out (although ddr4 ram has been around for years), and its been 7 years, roughly, since the intro of DDR3. Itll pretty much come included in processor support when the manufacturers are out of other balls and whistles to add to their cpu lineups.
