So I take it that he meant, when will we have a bottom price awesome performing set of DDR4.
I thought he might
mean the same spec because there are plenty of people of internet who say why do they keep increasing freq on DDR4, why not bring the Cas down, even if it reduces frequency. Of course, these are the people who don't know overall latency is related to both Cas & frequency, not just Cas.

I dunno where you two have been looking, but there has already been a wonder RAM like IC for DDR4. A major reason that DDR4 prices have decreased so much since X99 launch is because, currently, majority of kits on market are using Samsung ICs, while at DDR4 launch, it was Hynix ICs, which were more expensive.
Samsung started with D-die & is currently using E-die (4GB modules) & B-die (8GB modules). The good thing about both current Samsung ICs on the market ,is that, regardless of manufacturer bins, all kits clock fairly similar, with voltage being the only differentiating factor. So you can get the cheapest bin that has those ICs & get the same performance as the expensive one, with more voltage.
Lastly, depending on your skills, these kits can do a lot of 'fun' things.
