GSkill’s DDR4 Trident Z RAM Hits A Mind-Blowing 5.5GHz

GSkill has just been killing the competition when it comes to maximizing the speed of DDR4 sticks. GSkill’s Trident Z lineup of memory has been very well known to push boundaries. And with the help of Intel's i7 7740K, they managed to hit 5.5GHz

Might as well be GDDR5 with how high that latency must be. Plus we all know you get like no gains from system ram past 1886mhz anyway.

You are completely wrong, in games difference between DDR4-2133 and DDR4-3200 could be even 20%, so having even faster is most def even better, but in reality, not much people are using more than 3200, but the gain is there.

OmnislashVer36308d ago (Edited 308d ago )

Bull-shit. 1600mhz and 3200mhz will give you a 5% difference, and that's being generous. Maybe if you were on an APU and had no dedicated graphics memory you'd get 20%

Edit- disagrees are getting shafted for RAM. Ask any professional, upgrades are better spent anywhere else than faster RAM speeds because the difference is so minimal. The entire jump to DDR4 was more important for lowering voltage than anything else... Seriously...

neoandrew308d ago

Nope, just check the tests man and gain some real knowledge not you BS without any facts, it is up to 20% for 2133 - 3200, from 1886 it is even more, that's the facts, but ok, people that never had 3200+ ram just don't have any clue and make some bs myths that it gains nothing, yeah sure it stops at 1886, magical force stops it right there LOL

Again, wrong, most tests show a 5-7% difference in any RAM speeds at all. A quick Google search will bring that up.

Here ya go:

Second link shows 2133 to 3200 having a ZERO TO FIVE percent increase. Only one with facts here is me.

"As Anandtech’s benchmarks show, the benefits of moving from DDR4-2133 to DDR4-3200 are tiny. The vast majority of consumer applications and games show gains of 0-5%."

Sorry you don't understand diminishing returns and the fact that RAM is hardly a bottleneck.

Knowledge = power. You're better off saving that money for anything else, SSD upgrade, CPU upgrade, GPU, PSU, or McDoubles with no onions. Have fun looking for a 20% gain in a game, you're not going to find it.

Geez, this kiddo wants to fux with the professionals. You need to get your head professionally checked. Diminishing returns are on RAM because it's already so damn fast. RAM doesn't bottleneck 99% of systems as every other piece is behind it in speed(aside from transistors or cache on the CPU, but even a CPU upgrade gets you gains, RAM speed doesn't). Nice bluffing skills though, you would have had me if I were an idiot. But alas there's a difference between someone with actual knowledge and an needlessly edgy kid trying to show off how smart he is.

Disagrees want alternative facts when the professionals and tests have spoken. Disagrees can't get the logic behind diminishing returns and RAM not being a bottleneck. It's in the article as well but I explained it in baby words for you so you can understand. Sowwy. Did the facts hurt your feelings?

A game like GTA 5 on a Ryzen CPU can have gains from 110 fps to 136 fps going from 2133 to 3600 speed ram.

In short, yes it makes a difference.

OmnislashVer36308d ago (Edited 308d ago )

They explained this is a Ryzen-only thing at the beginning of the video. I actually did not know this, furthermore it's 5fps at over 100fps in some games. I'm not even going to math that out. That's like a 2-4% increase. GTA is a special exception at 15-20%.
