    Paper launch. Anything out of reach for 99% of people is what I call paper launch. Probably costs € 759 or something.

    1% is still a market.

    If only Ryzen CPUs/APUs could use this. The improvements would be insane.

    Very high profit margins on stuff like this as well

    Maybe Ryzen+ or Ryzen2 might allow for better memory compatibility

    Meanwhile 16Gb DDR4 2166 costs 200€...

    And here I SIT with my massive 12gigs (was 16, 1 stick broke) of ddr3 1600. :D

    LOL! I got a 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD for less than my 16GB of 3600Mhz CL14 RAM. SMH

    I'm stuck with 16gb of DDR3 1600 too. The DDR4 price has putt me off buying Ryzen and will putt me off buying Ryzen+, it's just not worth it for me with a functional i5 2500k. I'm hoping by the time Ryzen 2 comes, in 2019, prices will have dropped.

    Similar situation here, 4770k@ 4.5 and on 3440x1440 it doesn't really bottleneck anything. Planned to go for Ryzen+ but with prices like this potential marginal future-proof upgrade will cost around 1k Euro, so also putting it off until 2019 at least.

    Besides Navi / Zen 2 may come around that area, so who know's if AMD's new RTG leaders will come up with something better then Raja's Vega I might go fully for team red then. Perhaps it will be a nice choice considering all of those manufacturing processes shrinks they talk about, but let's see.

    The most interest I have of this memory is real-world benchmarks, particularly with a Ryzen 2 APU, which I'm sure will have an insatiable appetite for bandwidth. But even if I were given the money to buy it, I wouldn't.

    Yeah with hardware like that, I don't see a reason to upgrade.
    I think that depends on what your definition of "better" is. AMD invested way too much into Vega, so for the next several years we're going to have hardware derived from it. I would be a bit surprised if the next-gen discrete GPUs aren't improved, but I personally don't expect something to outperform Volta, if that's what you were hoping.

    I wouldn't hold your breath on that, prices are just set to increase when it comes to memory (Though i think mostly with inflation rather than straight MSRP increase). This is affecting both GPU's and Ram prices since they often come from the same companies. Was reported that companies are having to buy memory at a higher price from factories which in turn is increasing the prices of RAM when retailers sell them.

    With the big PC market right now too, with miners, businesses and individuals all buying Ram at the prices they set, i doubt they will drop or least not back to how they used to be because of the profit margins they are currently make on them... it's annoying and sad, but looks to be the way of things right now

    I'm telling you bro if you need more threads just pick up a 2600k used. Going from my 2600k to my 8700k I really only notice the major performance increase in benches and encoding. Some games seem smoother but that could be placebo.

    I come from a i7 920 @3.7 with 16gb @1066 Ram and now i own a 8700K @4.7 with 32gb @3200 (i re-used my 850 evo SSD and GTX1070 for now)
    The only noticable "real" differences is in some benchmarks and encoding obviously, some shorter loading times for certain games and faster system boot time...
    Also in a few games i notice a few more FPS but nothing stellar @1440p

    So in short the advice to pick up a i7 2600k used or possibly new would also be my advice if you don't want to spend a lot for a performance boost...

    Not at all, doubt AMD will come with anything that may be in that area. BUT we never know!

    Hm, still looks somewhat ok to me, good 3200MHz 2x8GB from ~180€..
    https://geizhals.eu/?cat=ramddr3&sort=p&xf=253_16384~256_2x~5015_3200~5828_DDR4~5830_UDIMM1~5831_DIMM

    Ok I've seen them ~130€ at one point, or at first 200-300€+


    But 32GB kit is expensive, 350€+...
    https://geizhals.eu/?cat=ramddr3&sort=p&xf=253_32768~256_2x~5015_3200~5828_DDR4~5830_UDIMM1~5831_DIMM


    now imagine 4700MHZ kit, 1000€?

    EDIT: or not, 16GB 4600MHZ kit is "just 520€"

    I am glad that I bought 8x3GB DDR3 2400 for 115$ back in 2016

    Personally I got the 6700k/ddr4 3000C14 32GB --> 8700L/ddr4 4266 C19 16GB "upgrade" basically for nothing thanks to the crazy prices after selling almost all my ram kits(had about 128GB total of ram kits).

    Still got left two kit's of (2x8)16GB_TridentZ, a black/white 3200C15 & 3000C14 red/silver. Both B-die.

    I was gonna sell my current 4266C19 16GB kit and keep the black/white 3200C15 for my pending black/white theme build but I spoiled my self a bit with the semi-tight 4K+ ram speeds tbh.

    Point is, if I manage to benefit and make a good profit just from those, we can only imagine what's theirs.

    I was reading a few months ago that in 2018 prices might start coming down but it seems that's no longer the case.

    Those are 3200CL16 which is 99% Hynix, I would not call themm good.
    Also 180€ for 16GB and 350€ for 32GB is about same price per module/GB so I dont understand why would you call them expensive when compared to 16GB.
