Windows 7: DDR4 Next-gen memory. Next-gen performance.

Instant (seemingly) boot up to Windows (or your OS of choice), file transfers, load times, etc. Basically, data storage and transfer speeds can always hold more and be faster.

That being said though, I still haven't gotten around to getting an SSD - still thinking about getting one on my next main upgrade. Right now, a lot of stuff on my HDD is loading from it's cache in RAM, so, fast "enough" for me (and much of it likely faster than what SSDs are capable of too).

The access times of SSD's are exponentially faster than hard drives....and I'm pretty sure HDD caching doesn't hold a candle to SSD Sequential/Random 4K speeds.

Much of it is cached in my on-board RAM.

I don't believe that time is far off when a SSD will have the equivalent of ram made in it as a unit.
How about a motherboard that incorporates a SSD with built in ram plus a cpu with complete video/audio support that works with the SSD/RAM with these new down sized ports and what ever DDR? required.
Made as one unit and sold as one unit. No repair just replace the complete unit. Nick named the Throw Away. The only thing separate and replaceable would be the cooling method.

The general problem with RAM is that it's "volatile" memory, and still pretty expensive for large storage capacity. There are ways around some of the problems with it being volatile that could resolve that issue, for the most part. Cost for capacity would still likely limit its market viability. It is tempting though to take advantage of its speed performance, and for some server types (etc.) it's worth the price of admission.

For RAM speed SSDs (as it were) the limiting factor would be the SATA connection itself.

This is a benchmark on my RAM drive (actual RAM speeds are faster though):

There are some graphics card that had GDDR4 memory like the Radeon X1950 XT

ddr 4 and or ddr 5 ram sounds like it would be pretty sick! I just hope my mb will possibly be compatible with it as i dont want to have to shell out for new mb especially if my current one still works.

I'm sure it won't be compatible just as DDR, DDR2, and DDR3 are not. Each one needs the memory controller to be compatible.

Matts, did you mean slick instead of sick?

Well no I meant sick but why would it possibly
Not be compatible? It is due to different clock speeds of
The ram and different speeds in general?

Memory performance, I'm not sure?
Hi guys, I'm a bit confused as to if this is the norm or not. At the moment I'm running with 4gb or ddr3 and 2gb readyboost usb plugged in. Nothing is running in the background, can you guys tell me if my memory is looking okay? I'm just a bit concerned about that 'free' reading. ...
