This is just disapponinting, DDR3 record at 4404MHz and now we get DDR4 record at 4255 MHz. Do they want to start selling low frequency DDR4 chips at first and then raise the frequency so they can say an advancement has been made, buy new chips with higher frequency?

Still.. single channel, not even dual/quad.

How long has DDR3 been on the market, and how long has DDR4 been on the market?

You know that the first cutting edge DDR3 modules were 1333 and before they were introduced you could buy DDR2-1250 off the shelf, or overclock your D9GMH/D9GKX equipped Ballistix/Firestix/Cellshock/G.Skill etc to around the same frequency with luck and a strong northbridge.
When DDR3 intro'd it was rated 1066, the DDR2 WR stood at 1296. The moral of the story is tech takes time to mature.

They said that "DDR4 memories would start at 3200 MHz but they started to produce 2133 MHz DDR4."......
Absolute rubbish.
The memory bus speed will start at 2133MHz

So far there is only one desktop DDR4 standard and it's DDR4-2133. In future will be more but right now everything above that is considered as overclocked ( even though well tested and guaranteed by manufacturer ). SPD profile includes JEDEC specs and on every desktop DDR4 it's about the same.
Server DDR4 are lower clocked than 2133.
On the other hand who cares how high is memory clock when memory bandwidth is limited because of IMC/cache clock. Probably it will change when we see Skylake but right now there is only one desktop chipset on the market.

Did anyone notice that this is not even a world record? Already 2 others have higher scores..

Not on servers with over 40 logical cores. Considering there are 6c/6t to 18c/36t Xeon parts, I suspect that bandwidth would best utilized by real hardware that needs it. A quad-core, or even a 6-core CPU isn't going to need this kind of bandwidth, but a 10c/20t part or more might.

Of course in servers it's not an issue. Talking about bandwidth limit I meant more 3000+ memory kits on desktops.
