Maybe Corsair will send me this kit. They did mention some red kit...

I wonder....



:roll:

Just needs to find me a better CPU! Corsair needs to bundle this with capable CPUs!

I think you guys are overlooking the main problem here... $750 for 8GB of RAM. You could build a decent gaming rig for that much...
Thing about that is you are buying prebinned ram. I spent probably close to that binning d9's for my AM3 chips back in the day.

You can also build a gaming machine for the price for a single nVidia Titan, but people bought it anyways.

Hurruh to memory that might make your IVB chip run a whole 2% faster. :laugh:
I would like to see CPUs actually utilize all of this bandwidth. :p

Whereas the Titan is actually going to give you noticeable improvements if you go SLI or you have limited space to work with (Falcon Tiki), the memory won't even be supported on most CPUs out there, not to mention the diminishing returns once you go past 1866/2133MHz.

Even for extreme overclockers with LN2, I doubt they'll be able to push the memory much further until they find cherry-picked CPUs that will support it.

Diminishing returns depends on the platform. Kick a APU up to 3000mhz on the ram and look at the GPU performance as well as CPU performance increase.

Depends on the workload but generally speaking applications like office suites and games aren't going to utilize it (and in most cases the CPU won't either). iGPUs would love it though. I wonder how well the iGPU on the 5800k would run with a set of these.

Definitely not worth it though, that's for sure. But neither is an i7 Extreme Edition but people buy it anyways. :p
