    No limit is too high for G.SKILL memory. In just a week after the official release of the new Intel Ivy Bridge-E Core i7 Extreme processors, G.SKILL memory is already testing the extreme limits of the Intel processors and broke the world record for fastest DDR3 yet again. This time a 16GB (4x4GB) G.SKILL TridentX memory kit is overclocked to a blistering DD3 4072MHz - the first instance of a quad-channel DDR3 memory kit to break the 4GHz barrier (validation). This astounding feat was made possible and achieved on the new Intel i7-4960X CPU and the ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard under LN2 extreme cooling. Below is a screenshot of the record validation by CPU-Z.

    But does it make any difference in gaming though? Not everyone benches their system 24/7

    I'm going to assume you posted that on purpose to reflect the opinion of the retards that dont comprehend Overclocking feats. If so, Bravo to you sir. It will stop none of them from commenting sadly.
    But it means I can update my list of pitiful weaklings to avoid.

    As much as i think the OC is great seeing as the fastest ram available is 2400Mhz. Im only really interested in how it translates to real world or gaming performance.

    the OC is great though, theres no denying that.

    Real world gaming performance increase? There is none, and probably never will be. Or if there is, its like ~1-2%

    So that's nearly 130GB/s of bandwidth, that something like a Kaveri would love to have... :p

    AMD cpus actually dominated the memory speed scene until haswell and Hynix MFR kits were released

    not on those timings... and damn if that's stable, so am I...


    I like how g.skill with their good pricing/quality have taken numerous records!

    now the 4k barrier is broke, next itll be 4.2k and so on!

    I eagerly await these figures becoming mainstream DDR frequencies. Long time back we dreamed of frequencies higher than 533!

    The fastest RAM available is 2400MHz, you say??

    ADATA XPG V2 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3...

    I've noticed all of these crazy Ivy Bridge-E memory clocks are using 4960X engineering samples. I have a retail 4930K and while I've managed to boot 4x4GB DDR3-3000 it's not even stable enough for Super Pi 1M. I wonder if the ES chips are just stronger than retail.

    The PC Biz is suffering from the world wide economic melt down so hype is the order of the day.

    Test after test after test of real apps shows high frequency RAM is a very bad investment. Frequencies above 1600 MHz. at the moment are just hype as they provide NO tangible gain in system performance for typical desktop use including video games.

    It's like having an autobahn with a car that goes 60 mph. The autobahn isn't the limiting factor, the car is. The same applies to DDR3 RAM frequencies. DDR3 RAM running @ 1600 MHz. is not a system bottleneck so increasing the RAM frequencies only provides minute system improvement. Paying a premium for empty promises is a sucker's play. An educated consumer wouldn't touch this over-hyped RAM but fools rush in where wise men dare not tread. ;)

    This generalization does not apply to all apps. To most, sure, but once you add in multiple VGAs that need to access system ram to get the data they need, ram is much more important and has a larger effect. At the same time, most only run a single VGA, so there is very little use for most, for sure.



    MHz records are about the MHZ, however, and performance is not a priority.


    Myself, one-off overclocking feats like this are interesting, but I am more interested in the maximum that ALL of a brand's sticks can attain. Something like "we figured out this cool thing, now all our sticks are faster!".


    Sadly, the ram industry is greatly lacking in innovation.

    I take it that despite your angelic delight of AMD you forget that APU's love to be fed RAM with more Mhz frequency? I dont think you're a very educated consumer then buddy.
    I'd be delighted to show you graphs that show tangible gain in performance of an APU based on increased memory frequency.

    Actually there is some difference in gaming - but it depends on the game itself. If you go though some of TPU's memory reviews - you will see that quite often higher speed kits are anywhere from 3-5fps fast or even close to 20fps but thats all dependant on the software/application itself.

    G.Skill RipjawsX F3-2133C9Q-16GXL 2133 MHz 4x 4 GB DDR3 - check out Metro:LL bench right at the bottom

    and these two are smaller fps boosts, anywhere between 3-5fps difference (maybe more

    Avexir Core Series 3100MHz

    Kingston HyperX Beast 2133

    Most of the reviews generally show difference of around 3-10fps and more depending on what software is used.

    These are just 3D performance though.

    You are aware this guy is the crazed AMD zealot that listens to nobody but the voices in his head that send him galavanting into every AMD post to proclaim messianic calls of grandeur. Hypocrisy in his words and a foolish misguided opinion cant stop him now.
    Which makes me wonder as to why he claims their is no gain in higher Mhz RAM when he should be announcing these are the second coming of christ for the AMD APU users.

    Only if AMD improve their IMC, in the last test Tom's did A10-6800K VS i7 4770K to see memory scaling the APU wasn't stable at 2400 Mhz
