I have thought about this a great deal. If your current memory gives you 3600mhz and CL16-16-16=16 then it really is a complete wate of money to get the top tier Neo 4 dimm kit. Why do I make su ch an emphatic statement? Because your net performance improvement in ral applications is only likely to be 1%. That is hardly worth expending an extra $200 above other high end 32GB memory kits. I was every enamored with the specs when I first saw the announcement as well. But it is essentially fools gold. Looks good on paper , but no price/performance value whatever. Knock your socks off if you like.1% is not wotth over $200 more.
Technology is NOT a liberator . Whom technology serves is a class question.
Technology wielded by the capitalist class benefits only the exploiters.
Technology wielded by the working class will serve ALL Humanity.
