G.Skill has created the world's first air-cooled 5000MHz DDR4 memory kit

This was only possible on LN2 a few years ago.

OK I don't get this out very often, but..



Ram has gone ham.

Would this actually have any real world benefits for applications or games over say 3000MHz ?

Nope. None whatsoever.

The real benefit of this is very questionable.
I don't see the benefit of this extending to anything outside of artificial benchmarks.
Are there any real tasks shown to be benefitting from this, with the increased latency that comes with that higher speed.
To me it seems that it would require a pretty specialist workload to offer anything to a buyer, even designing around the hardware.

Probably would see the most benefit but not sure if you'd notice after 4000mhz

This one is for pro overclockers. Real world benefit... None.

Real world gaming usage, probably none yes. However, throughput and boring server like stuff ? it will make a big difference.

You will probably see AIDA benchmarks for memory on this eventually, judge it then

I also think that once Ryzen gets faster you will find that faster ram will also help it. Once they start hitting 5ghz and or beyond? the IF will need to function a lot faster than it does now. 3200 is about where Ryzen does well atm, but remember Ryzen is only running 3.8-4ghz.

Servers and boring stuff still run on ECC and that doesn't go to 5GHz. Neither can HEDT CPUs use that speed. And also only few cream of pre-binned CPUs can run it. Not every memory controller can handle it. It is at the edge of present tech.
