Is Micron Prepping DDR4 RAM Modules for Late 2012?
Yeah you read the above correctly. It appears that Micron is sending samples to clients to test out the new performance. DDR3 showed massive speed increases but DDR4 plans to wipe the board clean. Micron’s new DDR4 stick is estimating a speed of 3200 MT/s (Up from DDR3’s 1066!). And now using the 30 Nanometer technology rather than DDR3’s 90 Nanometer, the sticks require even less power to operate. Will these beautiful sticks be making their way into your system? We at TheTechTile have a better question: “What’s going to support it when it’s launched?
All potential compatibility problems aside, it is fantastic to see technology improving. Faster Ram access speeds means your computer spends less time waiting for information to process, and more fluent multitasking. Not to mention I’m sure we can all save a few bucks on our electric bill.
