Woah, also DDR4-4800 CL17. Wouldn't mind some of that.

It's impressive but you mine as well wait for a ddr5 platform as the prices you'll pay for these fast sticks won't be far off from similar ddr5 ones, since they don't need to be as fast in pure clock speed.

If history is going to repeat itself, it's going to take a while for DDR5 to catch up in de facto latency, despite higher clocks.
But yeah not planning to actually buy these since I got another disappointing memory controller with my 9900k... 8700k was garbage, this is only OK, my best yet is still stuck on a bloody pentium gold. Which managed this: https://valid.x86.fr/v786ts

DDR5 offers quite a significant performance improvement clock for clock with higher IPC and overall bandwidth. That's not mentioning the architectural inherently lower latencies. I wouldn't be surprised to see some DDR3 level CAS latencies.


I do fully expect DDR5 to be super expensive just like high end memory is today.

I can't find anything supporting your claims with DDR5 - in fact, looks to be in line with DDR4 (and subsequently, DDR3) JEDEC:
https://www.anandtech.com/show/16143...-and-latencies

Would you mind linking a source? I also don't know what IPC means in relation to memory.

Very simple google search, https://www.rambus.com/blogs/get-rea...dimm-chipsets/

Rambus is a silicone and chip provider, so quite the source. Though the information I stated I learned from one of WYPs past articles.

Well colour me surprised that marketing material claims that their new product is better than their old one.

Well color me surprised if a new generation of memory is actually better than the old one. Who woulda thunk it?

There's no indication that it'll outperform DDR4 latency wise. Throughput and capacity, sure.
