G.Skill Showcases DDR4 System Memory and Live Demo of DDR3-3000 at IDF

G.SKILL International Co. Ltd., the world's leading designer and manufacturer of extreme performance memory, proudly displays several engineering sample DDR4 modules at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF). The next generation of DDR memory is still under development, and G.SKILL is working to push the new technology to its limits in the future. G.SKILL also features a live demo of DDR3 3000MHz 32GB (8x4GB) with the Intel Core i7-4960X CPU and ASUS X79-Deluxe motherboard. Driving the new Ivy Bridge-E processor to new limits, G.SKILL looks forward to offer a wide range of high performance memory kits on the Intel X79 platform.
A video presentation follows.

they didn't give any other information about the DDR4? so why showcase them if they look like any other ram ever?

In all likelihood, this is because their DDR3 3000MHz 32GB (8x4GB) RAM would make the DDR4 look bad and they can sell the DDR3 3000MHz kits to consumers that already have a supporting DDR3 platform (i.e. most customers out there).

From what I recall hearing, DDR4 will presumably be on Intel server platforms first (Haswell-E) and later on consumer level hardware.

When industry moves on to a new ratified RAM standard, its not uncommon for the higher-end of the previous standard to be very competitive with the entry level new standard and possibly cheaper too.

Common guys, the history will repeat the same as ever. You forgot how ridiculous were the prices for DDR3 were when they first launched. If I am not mistaken DDR3-1333Mhz was almost 50% more expensive than top DDR2-1200Mhz kits, even if the later were 5-10% faster than those DDR3.

I cannot find those links anymore...

I wonder how much VTT/VCCSA was needed for 32GB (8x4GB) DDR3-3000 on IB-E? I'm having trouble running 2666 32GB (4x8GB), though 8GB DIMMs usually put a heavier burden on the IMC.
