SoloCamo I'm just trying to hold out until DDR5.

Went from SDRAM to RDRAM to DDR to DDR3. If I drop to below 90% res scale of 4k on BFV, my 4790k at 4.6ghz and C10 2400mhz DDR3 actually holds my oc'ed Radeon VII back. I guess 6 or so years was a good run. I mean, not like 70-80fps mins on a 60hz 4k monitor is the end of the world or anything

Yup, AM3+ was for that way for me. Went FX-8120 to FX-8350 to FX-9590.

Yes and no actually, depends on how often one upgrades. Looks very good on paper and consumer-friendly but actually, if one upgrades every say 3 or 4 years, this has zero benefits.
One assumes a certain awareness behind said upgrading cycle (needs to last me for so long with 'x' amount of money, so can't be crap but need not be HEDT, etc. etc.) and as such some careful or semi-careful planning.
Like say not buying a 3800/3900X 5 months from now, but instead waiting it out for the next gen.
Or inversely, buying one gen behind (and one at best 'cause you're looking at 3-4 years minimum) when the new one comes out to save some money.
And i really do think most people fall into this category in terms of upgrade cycles, so barring "enthusiasts" and the like... even gamers, most kids will whine and whine in forums and media, but i sincerely doubt this affects them, they don't change everything annually; at best they'll switch a GPU every odd year, not the rest.

Just good PR externally and reduced R&D internally

* again, this all on a consumer level.

Coffee Lake supports DDR3 too.



nobody has found "what voltage will burn out the IMC" but it certainty is not 1.0v and it's certainly not 1.65v either (DDR3 XMP voltage). People bench B-Die all day at 1.9v+ on ambient cooling and have no lasting ill effects.

I say pick up the 3960X or 3970X and then just sell the CPU and pick up the 4970X when it comes out. That way you're using the platform rather than just waiting.
