Guys, for me DDR4 will be a very good choice for my RAMdrive. Because now the max will be 128GB, I know exactly what to use 120GB, for example, on my future 4.266Ghz DDR4 modules. 34GB/s.... Dat bandwidth!
Corsairs' target market is gamers, and of those, people willing to spend on a 2011 based system are a tiny fraction that is growing increasingly irrelevant.
A: Have money to spend and money burns a hole in their pocket.
B: Are going to be needing 40 PCI-E lanes to drive 3 or more PCI-E devices.
C: Have very specific demands for a workstation.
Also inside the small niche inside of a niche, most skt2011 owners probably don't strictly use their machine for games. I know I certainly don't, in fact gaming was an after-thought when I "upgraded" everything except my case and one of my GPUs.
The vast majority of socket 2011 based systems are mission critical, commercial and enterprise users whp will be using a Xenon based platform, which will also be DDR4, but error correction, density and cost are way more important than speed. Like a few posts back said, most still run DDR3 1333
