DDR4 memory for desktops expected to arrive in third quarter

Quote:
For gamers and desktop users looking to shift to the new DDR4 memory as quickly as possible, the wait will end in the third quarter this year.

Crucial expects to ship new DDR4 memory for both servers and desktops around the same time in the third quarter, said Michael Moreland, worldwide product marketing manager at Crucial.

New DDR memory is usually shipped first for servers and then for desktops, but that trend will change with DDR4, which has been under development for more than five years. PCs will be faster and more power efficient with DDR4, which provides 50 percent more memory bandwidth than DDR3 and 35 percent more power savings.

Nice find, Bill. Now the question is will it work as it claims to and how much will it cost and how much will the boards and CPUs cost. I suspect they will all sell for a premium when first released.

Yep, no doubt.

But it's better to get the DDR4 RAM out there as soon as possible. I plan to rebuild when Skylake is introduced (late next year?) and I'd much prefer that the DDR4 premium has largely disappeared by that time. I do expect to be gouged by the motherboard and CPU to some extent. Maybe even by Windows 9. Luckily, I rebuild only every 4 years or so.

I hope to jump on the DDR4 bus, then I might slow down my upgrades to nearly every 3.5 years atleast, as I'll have enough power to last, that is my plan, but plans don't always work out
