Any info about voltage? Still 1,4v for such frequencies and timings or maybe possible with 1,35v?

DDR5 is only justifiable against DDR4 once DDR5 gets over 7000 cl32

Gskill currently has a 6000 64GB CL32 kit using 1.4V you can buy today.

Giving the timings, I suspect these annouced kits are using SK Hynix A-Die that just came out. Lower voltage, higher freq, but slightly worse timings.

It's like people don't realize bandwidth is a thing.
Depends on what you do.

I'm working with Databases you might either search for latency or bandwith, because when you are single-threaded, latency is very important, while with multi-thread requests (like 64 or 128 cores working), you care more about bandwidth.
And Intel Optane is still used as a kind of RamDisk for very low latency operation (in terms of nanoseconds, meanwhile best NVMe are at microsecond time - 1000 times slower).

But I agree, common people don't need a better bandwidth.

Yeah, it seems we have to wait and see. Thanks anyway.

Bandwidth is great if you have the use case for it. Most people don't. However, low latency is a thing most people appreciate.

General computer usage and gaming is still faster on a well-tuned DDR4 system and will be for at least the next two years. DDR5 is a waste of money for 95% of people.

No courage anyone to go 7Ghz or more? Still waiting for those 8Ghz modules.

Those kinds of modules are a year away. Hynix have apparently released a new "A" revision of their DDR5 ICs which can easily clock into the high 7000's, but I have no idea if the timings are terrible or not. These modules have just been released in China and are not due to the states for a long time, maybe a year.

DDR5 is only justifiable against DDR4 once DDR5 gets over 7000 cl32
It's viable, widely accepted, and significantly and noticeably faster than any DDR4 kits. And basically, the only "justification" consideration necessary after simply being stable is if the price-to-value ratio eclipses that of DDR4.

And honestly, for the performance boost, now that prices are starting to come back down to Earth, it's easily justified.

And I would say 7000 MT/s CL32 seems completely arbitrary, but (if it was actually a calculated opinion), I would say you were implying that DDR5 is only worth it once it was, on average, twice as fast as the average DDR4 kit.

I won't take the time to go over how silly that is as well, but does that mean you won't buy another CPU gen until it's twice as powerful as the current gen? It isn't a 1-1 comparison, but close enough.

It's just silly. I'm assuming you don't use it, either? Since it isn't "justified". I've had a 5200 Corsair kit for 3 months, and while I am going to upgrade from that soon, it is noticeably faster than any DDR4 I've ever used.

Maybe you should give it a shot before giving uninformed opinions that may sway others. Not being rude, just trying to be objective.

You have no idea of what you're talking about. Unless you have a use case for high bandwidth, then well-tuned DDR4 (b-die) is better for gaming, and nearly all other use cases at a lower price. So far only 1 game has been found to benefit from DDR5, and that's the latest Spiderman game, and only when ray-tracing has been turned on. So unless you only play that game, the lower latency of good DDR4 is still king.

Try to carry out some research away from mainstream YouTube marketing channels, who have no idea how to tune a system properly. The info is out there, and the results speak for themselves.

And please don't start some kind of AMD v Intel fight. You can take an Intel 12900KS or a 13900k and build two systems, one DDR5 and one DDR4, and tune the balls out of both, and you will be enlightened.

DDR5 will only be better when Intel stops supporting DDR4.
