holy crap and here I was thinking it would be a while till we saw this kinda speed, timing don't seem that bad but I haven't gotten into any ddr5 yet so don't really know if that's good or not just basing on other timings I have seen

well there have been testing DDR 5 10,000 mhz but im guessing that isnt fully stable yet heard test samples were capable of hittin that 10ghz barrier awhile back. would love to see if amd apus can take advantage of that speed when it gets released.

You can already overclock Hynix A die to over 8000 on the Asus Apex Z790.

G Skill have already managed 10,000 DDR5, albeit it needed to run in gear 4, so the IMC frequency was only 1250.

They need hurry up and incorporate Carbon Fiber Nanotubes replace the limiting factor as silicon seems to be at its limit.

This is just crazy; the speed that these have increase by since a year ago. I just bought a 6200 kit thinking I'm fancy. Now I'm sending it back for a 7600 kit. Along with an Z790 Apex that popped up on Newegg yesterday.

I have not been following DDR5 very closely as I'm not intending to swap out my system any time soon with current prices on things like MBs etc I'm more likely to swap out the 1080ti for something a lot more modern...

Anyways DDR4 4000MHz is readily available in timings as low as CL 14 -> 18... for 8000MHz to get equivalent latency would need timings then ranging from 28 to 36 yet at 8000/CL38 these have the latency of 4000/CL19 which is pretty low end timings for 4000Mhz ram.

The 3600 CL 16 sticks I just installed last night have a lower latency and 3600 CL 14 exists. They barely edge out 3200 CL 16 modules

So on paper these sticks are still quite a bit worse than common DDR4 modules as far as latency goes. Is the higher frequency actually making up for the comparatively poor timings/latency or is it mostly a wash?

Sweet momma that's a purty motherboard! Can we expect any build pic when you get that?

I went with the G.Skill 7600 kit because it's using .05v less than the 7800 kit and cheaper, now I'm looking today and the 7800 kit is cheaper. Oh well, I doubt there is much difference in these two kits. HWC should render 0.00000000032ms faster than the 6200 kit I'm returning!!!
