The individual DDR4 dies are capable of transferring data at up to 2667Mbps, or 333MB/s. According to Samsung, that's a 25% increase over the top speed of equivalent DDR3 offerings. Impressively, the DDR4 chips offer higher performance than DDR3 while consuming 30% less power. Datacenter operators may appreciate the power savings even more than the performance boost.

I dont think that much more really. DDR3 dropped fast in price. DDR3 for other then Core i7+ was pointless.

Be an engineer at Intel, Samsung, etc.

It took DDR3 1-2 years to match DDR2 prices....

not yet, but doesn't change the fact that faster ram would be cool, especially 128GB of fast ram in 4 slots LOL!

Which is nothing really because DDR3 was only usable for high end X48/790i with MB costing a arm and a leg.

DDR3 support pre-dated X48 and 790i by almost a year. These two chipset came out in March 2008. However, the P35 and G33 supported DDR3 since June 2007. X38 also supported it in Sept 2007.

The first major implementation DDR3 were actually in OEM systems.... not high-end systems. I recall working on a G33-based Dell with DDR3 that my mother-in-law got in 2007.

No, they just have much better experience in marketing... especially in the last 3-5 years.

Hynix, Elpida, Micron, and Winbond aren't exactly well-known to the general consumers.

yeah but those are just ram manufacturers. samsung excels there, dominates arm production, high-ppi displays, hard drives etc

My guess is probably good management.

Are you sure you're not confusing DDR3 with channel count (dual channel, triple channel, etc)? Because only core i7 chips could take advantage of triple channel RAM, everything else below that was dual channel.

My apologies if I misread, though.

A lot of it has to do with marketing or perception... other companies have DDR4 in production as well. Other companies even has ReRAM and PRAM shipping. We just don't hear about them as much.

The memory management in Core 2 platform did not take advantage of DDR3 bandwidth the way Core i7 integrated memory controller did.

True, but that does not mean the Core 2 platform did not use/support DDR3.
