    Cl40 just sucks. Drr5 have a long way beating the fastest ddr4. By the time zen4 releases it will mature and be worthy of an upgrade but not today.

    well if for no other reason, DDR5 is unobtainium in most countries so if the motherboard you want has a DDR4 version I'd say go DDR4 for sure
    sadly not my case and my model is "funnily" the only one not available unlike all the other ones ah ah ah :mad:
    not like my DDR5 is here anyway as it's delivery has been pushed back twice already, DDR5 situation is so bad here they just disabled the order button you can't order it anymore, any kit of any brand, the shops that allow customers to still do it are basically scammers they have no delivery date and already hundreds of unfulfilled back orders

    anyway thanks for the comparison I at least know if my kit arrives it wont completely suck for games

    So, no point in buying DDR5 RAM right now?

    That's also called unobtanium ... but we have a 6000 MHz kit inbound, to be continued.

    Hynix 4800 does Ram OC : 6400Mhz-30-37-37-26-280-1T (Gear 2), so just wait for Hynix to arrive ;)

    :eek: Wanna adopt me? :D

    How much voltage did you pushed into Hynix RAM @ 6400 and those low CL timings? 1.3V, 1.35V...more?

    DDR5 is here with same performance as top DDR4 at a premium price. Obviously new tech needs to mature and when it does, it will be worthwhile.
    Meanwhile I'll stick with my current rig until DDR5 makes a name for itself.

    Can't be more true.

    Paying now for DDR5 is blunt stupidity.

    If you 7-zip a lot, go for it.

    This makes Alder Lake and expensive platform to adopt now, but if you expect to do it in advance then no regrets.

    Was pulling my hair out trying to figure out my high latency numbers until I saw your cpu-z screens. NB at 950MHz vs. 1800+ make a huge difference like 30ns in sandra. Had to force 1:1 in bios

    Latency sensitive code will prefer DDR4 for now, but the higher bandwidth potential and improved memory parallelism will work for DDR5, after more mature IMCs and DIMM kits are developed further.

    How is it expensive? Looks the same as last 5 Intel generations. 12700K 440€, MSI PRO Z690-A 200€, 2x8GB DDR4 60€.

    I just upgraded (not these exact specs but similar), money saved by not buying DDR5 went into 2TB pcie gen4 m.2 SSD. I'll get much more benefits from super fast storage, than 1-2% more FPS that DDR5 would have given me in 1080p low settings gaming. I don't even game in 1080p, so it's even more irrelevant for me.
