The world of Ram is moving right along. I wonder what Spec Ram we will be seeing with the new CPU offering from Intel. DDR 5 ??
Considering the new CPUs from Intel and AMD are coming out early next year, odds are it'll be DDR3. Maybe at a higher spec than the 1333 most boards do at stock, but I doubt DDR4 or 5 would be out by then.
Nice review, I've been considering the Ripjaws RAM for a while and nice to see them perform exceptionally.
