Yeah, but how much, $1,000.00?

those timings are better then most ddr2 800mhz. and double the bandwidth woot woot. it's getting better

now if price would just drp

no. 4x2GB pair cost that guy like 500 dollars so I don't think this will cost like 1,000

I don't see anything about price on there, where did you see 8 gigs of any ddr3 for $500???

Hmm.... wonder how they perform vs. GDDR3. Can we start to use these with GPUs?

How much of a difference in performance would you even see if you were to use these compared to fast DDR2? I know the very basics of how cpus and memory work together, but is 300mhz faster memory going to make a really big difference that you can notice? I'm pretty new to this.

GDDR3 is completely different from DDR3.

I am well aware that GDDR is different than desktop DDR memory, but since onboard video shares the main memory, I was wondering how this stuff would compare with its higher bandwidth and speeds.

Thanks for the article.

how are those timings better than ddr2 800? my ram is 4-4-4 at 800 mhz, those are 7-7-7. some ddr2 800 can do 3-3-3.

and why is the ram capable of 7-6-6 on asus mobo's?

It has a similar net latency value of 4-4-4 DDR2 800, Yes the timings are higher but the increased speed of the module will help it to have a similar or possibly even slightly better net latency of DDR2 800.

EDIT

Currently this link has the best DDR3 speed/latency combo, at $465. I wonder whne these will hit the market and at what price point as they will yield better performance than the Kingston's I linked too.

Most DDR2 is 5 5 5 15

you look at just the number itself not what the number means. Looking at it that way it's hard to understand it but think of this. the latency number is how many clock cycles happen before it does the desired task. so now for that so if you double the clock cycles lets say from 400 to 800mhz you now get twice the cycles in the same amount of time. so 400 at 2-2-2 is the same as 800 at 4-4-4. following going from 800 at 4-4-4 to 1600mhz at 8-8-8 it has the same latency. so with this ram running at 7-7-7 at 1600 would be equiv to 3.5-3.5-3.5 ddr2-800 ram

just remeber when you read latency it is based off how clock cycles. so the 4,7,8,2 or whatever number you want to choose means nothing by itself you have to have the mhz the ram runs at to know what it's latency really is. there is a post by pauldovi that explains it a little moer in depth.

also I have yet to see ram run at a rated latency of 3-3-3 though I have seen 3-4-4 I believe it is.
