windows 7 home premium 64bit

thats interesting, wonder why none of the stores in the chicago area have it, only way to get it is order it online.

It'll probably be ludicrously expensive for a year or two, so I wouldn't worry about it.

I'm on DDR2 myself (8 GB).

My "beef" is that nothing uses the memory I've got installed anyway.
Unless I run a couple of VMs, my usage doesn't go over 2 GB.

I wouldn't be concerned with "I just bought xxx"

but the target market will clearly be laptops and other mobile devices
It will quite some time before desktop variants are common place.

SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in advanced semiconductor technology solutions, announced today that it completed development of the industry's first DDR4 DRAM module last month, using 30 nanometer (nm) class process technology.

The new DDR4 DRAM module can achieve data transfer rates of 2.133 gigabits per second (Gbps) at 1.2V, compared to 1.35V and 1.5V DDR3 DRAM at an equivalent 30nm-class* process technology, with speeds of up to 1.6Gbps. When applied to a notebook, it reduces power consumption by 40 percent compared to a 1.5V DDR3 module.

By employing new circuit architecture, Samsung's DDR4 will be able to run from 1.6 up to 3.2Gbps, compared to today's typical speeds of 1.6Gbps for DDR3 and 800Mbps for DDR2.

Seriously -- we often get carried away by this stuff -- typical home users don't use a fraction of the power of the systems they already have.

Where this might start to be of real significance is in the "Post 3-D" world with the next generation of entertainment / video -- Holographic and decent Virtual Reality which requires a HUGE increase in processing power and memory speeds.

I think 3-D is only a temporary phase which outside some Sports Bars and cinemas won't make it big time into private homes -- but Holographic -- definitely.

Even though most users won't see a difference in performance, won't the energy consumption still be lower? That would be a good thing.
It should noticeably speed up Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware program scans on new computers with DDR4.

Provided the Hard Drive (etc SSD) and the CPU are up to scratch.

Even current A/V scans are significantly quicker on a SSD.
