Sounds like DDR5 is too far out to wait for an upgrade for me.
Comes out next year, and the first units will not be any better than the good DDR4 right now and crazy expensive... yeah nope. I think my 4790K is old enough to warrant upgrade to a 4700X/4900X system and not wait for DDR5
Interesting. Is there a easy to understand reason why it's difficult to increase the internal clock?
As Epic1337 said. The way the capacitors are built the cells can only charge and discharge at a certain speed and that is the limiting factor. In order to increase internal memory clock either the capacitor materials would need to change or the way they are constructed would have to change.
Hopefully I can keep my rig going for another 2-4 years. Don't really want to make an upgrade jump until I can do an across the board update. I already have 64GB of DDR4, don't want to re-buy this generation...
Hopefully by then we'll have 64 Core 5nm CPU, PCIE-5, USB-4, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, 10GbE and 256GB of DDR5 all available on the same MOBO.
"10000mhz", aka 5GHz DDR, aka still on the same old 200mhz internal memory clock still.
Wonder when they will stop just increasing prefetch each generation and actually get a clock speed bump. Then we could actually get higher speed without having to go a lot higher again on the column strobe latency. If all they want to continue to do is double the prefetch each time then jedec should just jump to 128n now and stop wasting everyones time.
edit: Ha. Well at least Anand writers arent completely stupid either and at least tried to point out the elephant in the room:
Can you explain the 10000mhz aka 5ghz ddr? I always thought 1,000 mhz == 1ghz so 10,000 == 10ghz
