G.SKILL Live Demos Extreme DDR4 3333MHz 32GB (4GBx8) and 3200MHz 32GB (8GBx4)

G.SKILL International Co., Ltd., the leading extreme performance memory manufacturer and designer, is excited to feature two extremely high end DDR4 memory at 3333MHz 32GB (4GBx8) and 3200MHz 32GB (8GBx4) during Intel Developer Forum 2014 (IDF 2014). Driven by the newest Intel i7-5960X CPU on the newest ASUS Rampage V Extreme X99 and X99-Deluxe motherboards, the Ripjaws 4 series DDR4 3333MHz 4GBx8 and 3200MHz 8GBx4 memory demonstrates the highest DDR4 speed available in 4GB and 8GB modules, respectively.

"It's very exciting to show the world what we can do with the new DDR4 memory standard for the latest Intel X99 platform. There is no doubt that breaking the 3000MHz memory barrier with ease is the next big thing in desktop performance, effectively doubling bandwidth throughput compared to the previous DDR3 memory standard," says Frank Hung, Product Marketing at G.SKILL.

Man that's some fast RAM

If only APUs could support DDR4

Since DDR3 running at 1600 MHz. is NOT a system bottleneck on a desktop PC, DDR4 offers nothing over DDR3 LV. Even APUs only see a small tangible system performance improvement with up to ~2133 MHz. DDR3.

DDR4 is intended primarily for servers even though the DRAM sellers, InHell and Asus will try to dupe consumers by over-hyping DDR4 when it offers no tangible system performance advantage. Tests with real applications confirm this. People can run their own tests with DDR3 and 1600 MHz. frequency vs. >1600 MHz. and real apps. to confirm faster DRAM provides no tangible system performance benefit on CPU powered desktops.

Don't get scammed, do your homework.

Seriously. You're on the wrong forums. Get out.

Well, he's right in the fact that for games, there is virtually no performance increase from incresed DDR3 speeds from 1600 to 3000. If there is, it will be less than 5 FPS, at best. 2133 seems to be the sweet spot for DDR3 price/performance wise.

That, however, doesn't change the fact that the 2011-3 boards require DDR4, so comparisons between DDR3 and DDR4 are irrelevant, because you're really talking about 2 different platforms.

Exactly. But whatever, some people don't like new stuff. I wonder why that is, exactly...
