    Default Would you buy DDR5 for system RAM on PC if you could?

    So, why is DDR5 only used on graphics cards instead of replacing DDR3 as system ram?

    Sony is using 8GBs of DDR5 for main system ram in PS4.

    I don't think it is even worth it. What sort of day-to-day applications use 20GBps as of right now (DDR3 speeds)?

    I think that is a rumour which people have spread. I can't see it being true. Although, if it is true that they are using a custom AMD 8 core chip with an APU (possibly with a discrete card too, in hybrid CF?), then I can imagine it would benefit greatly from the increased bandwidth as I know that going from 1333MHz to 2400MHz on the RAM side of things already increases the 7660D (Trinity APU) performance by over 40% in almost all instances.

    Your talking about memory for video cards, and memory for Desktops, DDR 4 hasen't even been relased yet, but I believe Crucial was the first company to design a DDR4 kit a month or two before CES,but who knows when DDR 4 will be released, never mind DDR5.

    They are comparable as both types of RAM are being used in video cards. There's a reason why all the high end ones stay away from DDR3. There are a lot of video cards with DDR3 and they are all in the lower end range.

    How did consoles leap frog PC? Like you said "DDR 4 hasn't even been released yet" but Sony just announce unified 8GB of GDDR5(GDDR5 is common place on PC graphics card) as system memory for PS4.

    GDDR5 is 3x faster than DDR3. An INSIDER said this caught Microsoft Xbox team with their pants down with PS4 announcement.

    I use Matlab for heavy-duty data crunching. I saw about a 3x performance improvement when I got my first DDR3 desktop a few years ago, verified by Matlab's "bench" command. Can't find any information now about whether going to DDR5 would give a similar result. Any ideas?

    I think that DDR4+ RAM is not availiable only because it would cost more and more than half of the workstation/gaming comunity dont know left from right when buying memory, One of my friends bought ram to install, he bought DDR2 ram 32 gb for his system, timing and MHZ were extremely low. He was mad when i told him that he wasted 400 bucks for bad ram.

    I believe Crucial was the first company to have a working DDR4 kit , and that was either back in late Dec, or after ECS.
