Agreed, once it's out I'd really like to see some benchmarks

If they end up running those numbers, imagine draw distances with those babies... I should had never got in PC gaming its an endless struggle to have more and more...

Back to Tomb Raider-ps4 for now (damn it was worth skipping last gen!)

Ram isn't about draw's about having a lot of animations and textures loaded into memory that don't repeat.

GPU determines draw distances.

XiSasukeUchiha1442d ago

I can't wait for next gen which they implement this:)

Can't wait to have to upgrade to DDR4!

Allsystemgamer1443d ago (Edited 1443d ago )

DDR3 has been out since 2007............

gamestoast1443d ago (Edited 1443d ago )

I meant - I can't wait to fork out the money for new RAM. It was sarcasm... Sorry for the confusion.

Volkama1443d ago

I don't think anyone missed the sarcasm. He's just pointing out to you that DDR3 is old and progress is overdue.

You don't have to fork out money if you don't want to, your ddr3 is not going to get any worse.

Allsystemgamer1442d ago

Lol who disagrees with a fact?

Dudebro901443d ago

DDR 4'is still ways off.

incendy351443d ago

Depends on how long you consider to be far. I think we will see machines with it in Early 2015.

Incorrect. Intel is releasing the i7-5930K (6-core 12-thread) Haswell-E and i7-5960X (8-core 16-thread) in just a couple months in Q3 2014. A few of the new X99 boards were shown off at Computex in Taipei this last week.

Thats exactly right my friend

Likely hitting desktops mid 2015 with Skylake, hope to see GDDR6 around then too, maybe sooner, GTX 880!?

Th3o1442d ago

DDR4 is slated for a public market release in 2015 for consumers. Everything in 2014 seems be just for companies, servers and maybe enthusiasts. We will see.

Memory has so little affect on gaming performance this isn't really exciting. Maybe if we hear dnew about video memory, then it get exciting. Like Volta that has stacked Vram and increase memory bandiwnth by 4-5 fold.

JBSleek1442d ago

It does on chipsets that use integrated graphics which is 65% of computers.

fullmetal2971442d ago

I could see DDR4 being a great benefit to AMD APU in the market. As you know APU uses system memory as the VRAM for gaming.

aLiEnViSiToR1442d ago

Nope that is not true actually, without improvement (innovation too) of RAM memory PC gaming (or anything on PC actually) would be way more complicated and had poor performance overall.

kingduqc1442d ago

Yeah but right now you take a basic 1333mhz memory stick vs a 2600 one and there isn't even 7% difference. Beside APU, but who really game on apu.
