I dont understand why they are releasing RAM at these super high frequencies when the new CPU's are only rated at 2133 with there being no guarantee that we'll be able to hit 2800mhz let alone 3300mhz

Easy: e-peen.



In all seriousness though, that's some serious speeds. Now that I come to think of it, it's faster than my CPU.

it's always been like that. they used to be rated for 1600 but could run 2133 or faster without any issues

well, 4770k was rated for 1333mhz max, but almost everyone had no problem running 2133mhz

Shouldn't we worry about stability issues at that high speeds on such a new standard?
DDR3 was the same at the early stages 1600Mhz modules made the system unstable, but of course that was later fixed

We should worry about the price instead...

However haswell IMC has proven to be quite good in memory overclocking. Obviously early X99 BIOSes and early DDR4 modules could have issues, but I think they will improve compatibility for higher speed and lower latencies with bios updates and new modules.

I bet there also will be 3200 MHz and relatively good timings 1.2V modules available once the production ramps up, sometimes in mid 2015. Remember that 3200 MHz is the heir of 1600 MHz ( most common consumer ram speed in the last 2-3 years )

But they're so expensive right now...

Yea that's because it's only available on the -e stuff. Price will drop when it comes to the mainstream (next year?).

Im pretty sure 2800 is a doddle for them Mr n0000b

G.Skill just broke the record on DDR4 getting their sticks to an impressive 4004Mhz
