I'm suprised there are no (or more of) 4GB sticks.

So whats the difference between the "low latency" and "enhanced latency" sticks. The latency obviously and the lower the better, but are is one higher latency with increased frequency?

Being designed for the i7, they probably dont have faster sticks as that would requirer higher voltage and so potentially fry the CPU.

Yea, I am really mad that M$ is still going to continue 32bit with Win7 :mad:.

The world needs to make the transition some time soon.

I hope they continue with dual channel setups for AMDs procs.

Speed

I don't know guys, seems like things aren't really getting "faster then you think". Some slight of hand could be happening. With 12 gigs of memory loaded with most of what the average person uses on his machine, when it starts up. No swapping what so ever, just a tiny pagefile if Win7 needs one. With readyboost enabled all the time and memory filled to the gills, the machine is going to look and be seen to be flying.
With the amount of memory that can be used, hard drives can go back to 5400 rpm, ssd can take a breather. Less cooling and power usage. etc etc.
For years the slowest part of the computer was the hard drive and still is, and why the computer is slow. With all the memory that can be used on board, slow will be the thing of the past. If one of the things in your life is speed you probably won't have to upgrade the MB for awhile, unless its tech that you can't live with out. :toast:

It is at my house allso, HTPC is running Windows 7 64 bits with 8GB DDR 2 and my desktop is running 64 bits Windows 7 with 4GB DDR3, when I upgrade one day to I7 or something, then 12gb will rain supreme, if my wallet can cope.

I have yet to use all of my 4GB, I cant see 12GB being useful anytime soon, other than for a workstation.

You will never use all of it, windows keeps a bit asside to stop the computer becomming unusable, from what I understand.

Check out what readyboost and prefetch does in Vista, and 12 gigs 24 gigs in all probability will be used.

Vista's prefetch system where it tried to populate 1.5GB - 2GB of my available 4GB at startup kicked the last breath out of my 500GB seagate HDD.

I would not want to go through this Hard drive torture again by loading 6GB every time I started up my computer :nutkick:
