Crucial breaks the 7GHz barrier with their Ballistix Max memory

Will 7GHz eventually become commonplace with DDR5?



Read more about Crucial's Ballistix DDR4 memory breaking past the 7GHz barrier.

Question now is: Do we know when DDR5 is supposed to launch next year and at what prices? I really want to upgrade early next year and am currently sitting on DDR3 memory, sooo wait for DDR5 or upgrade nevertheless?

I think the more important question is: does your setup fulfil your needs currently?

Moving from DDR4 to DDR5 probably isn't the most significant factor, since there's going to be new generation of CPUs from both vendors as well. And generally, late high-end memory holds its own well against the early next generation of DDR.

With a 4770k, 16GB RAM and a 1070 it somewhat does. But the new CoD wasn't running well during the beta.
But your statement gets me pretty confident in upgrading sooner than later.

Well I'd at least wait if AMD makes their pricing more reasonable with non-X CPUs or if Intel's response makes them relevant again. But predicting the future about DDR5 generation setups is difficult.
