    Can't really do much other than add bling when you have a commoditised market like RAMs. If I recall correctly there are only a handful of manufacturers making those chips, you have to rely on binning to tell them apart.

    That's my point, those who know what DRAM is for don't need whistles and bells and don't buy bling. They are the minority of the "enthusiasts group" which include the profilers.

    Last I checked there were (9) DRAM chip mfgs. but I believe Crucial has bought Elpida so maybe there is only (8) now. As far as the DIMMs themselves there are many different iterations of packaging of the same chips in addition to binning of the same chips.
