Eh. I might start caring about memory speeds again once DDR5 comes out.

Good caring about computer hardware in general in 2018.
Why 2018 ?

Anything specially other than the 12-cores CPU and DDR5 ram :roll: ?

Because it will be 2018 by the time you'll have DDR5 as a PC memory standard. DDR3 is tight till at least 2012~13, DDR4 could stretch till 2018 at the rate at which the industry adopts new memory standards.

thats fast ass memory! but lets be honest it's more the cpu's IMC then the ram thats impressive. any hyper based ram can do speeds like that but not many IMC's are able to get much over 2400 that cpu was more then likely hand picked through many ES cpu's

Have you seen DDR4 with video cards? They jumped over and came out with DDR5 right after DDR3. So 2 more years, smarty.:laugh:

No, 'smarty', PC memory technologies have a leap-cycle of 4 years with two transition years. The next leap for DDR3 is not DDR4, but DDR3 high-speed (DDR3 1866 ~ 3200 MHz @ 1.3V), only after that there is DDR4.

DDR3 ≠ GDDR3, DDR5 ≠ GDDR5.

What's the purpose of extreme cooling/overclocking something and then posting that it works for 5 minutes in a lab?

He broke the record, what's the point of keeping that speed longer then a couple minutes?. The goal was to reach the highest speed possible and he did it.

It's pretty interesting that he used a special LN2 pot for the ram, where as the guys who had the previous record used insulators to make the space around the ram to McGyver'ed pot.

It's neat either way, and while not practical, what company's can learn from the kinds of heat and voltages, that are involved with these speeds, and hopefully leading to faster ram speeds at lower voltages.

C'mon man. You could ask the same question about so many different things that so many different people spend lots of time, money and effort on.

What's the purpose of playing video games, for example?
