    Yeah, but only 1.6v. I'd like to see what these could do with something like 2v.

    No, both DDR2 and DDR3 are 240pin modules, but they're not pin to pin compatible.

    It always happens. New technology comes, expensive, and HIGH latency. Wait in 1 year time and you'll see fast ultra memory DDr3 sticks. Bet it will at least got to a 7/7/7 for the 1333mhz.

    If I owned a motherboard manufacturer I would make boards with ddr4 built into the board.

    You would go bankrupt lol...

    Noone would have the ability to upgrade or change memory.

    Tell me you wouldn't buy a board with 2 or more gigs of DDR4 on it.

    I would, if it was considerably cheaper than a board + sticks of ddr4, only because I'm a cheapo. Otherwise, I would opt for upgradability. I hate proprietary.

    With the success of DDR3 in vid. cards wouldn't you thing when thos latencies come down that DDR3 is going to be pretty good? Is the diff. between ddr3 and ddr4 just size, power consumption etc..?

    That brings up a good point. With DDR3 in video cards being out for so long, why isn't the latencies already better? They have had a long time to work on them!

    GDDR3 also runs at like 2ghz sometimes, imagine 2ghz memory on a desktop motherboard.

    But why 9? It's just way too high, start off at 6 mabye.

    1.6v is why. Once manufacturers start upping the volts and binning chips, the latencies will drop, just like they did with DDR2.
