My point is that DDR3 doesn't offer that much of a jump in bandwidth as compared to DDR2. It does offer more. But DDR3 clock at 1333MHz only offers about the same bandwidth (depending on the chipset) as DDR2 clocked at 1066. But DDR3 cost a hole lot more.

It’s kind of like what Intel did with the Pentium 4. Which was just a modified Pentium 3 that was slower clock or clock (yes the Pentium 4 was slower clock for clock than the Pentium 3) but could run at much higher clock speeds.

And we all now how much the Pentium 4 sucked.

Well, remember when DDR2 first hit the market? DDR2-400 and DDR2-533 with like 6-6-6-18 timings. DDR3 will improve over time. It's not really needed though.

That was my thought exactly. I may be new, but I can spot a money-making gimmick any day of the week. I mean, just look at the fact that it has aggressive styling. lol

If I were filthy rich, I'd buy it just for looks. But other than that? Who really needs something like this? Come on.

If you're overheating your RAM enough to need something like that, you're doing something incredibly wrong.

Nice try Gigabyte, no dice.

I agree, but the real question is, how well does it perform.

1 billion jerkahertz lol

Not only does it look cool, but it's probably going to be pretty useful in the future.
