    "making it the fastest currently available RGB memory in a 4x8GB configuration."
    Priceless.. or is that pointless

    RAM companies have lost the plot entirely. I got 16GB of 2400MHZ DDR4 for only £56 this year. Even if I get around to buying a new CPU,I will be using that RAM,since I am not paying £100s to get for a few FPS increase in games.

    I mean £500 gets you an XBox One X!!

    Cool, another step towards DDR5.
    Just bring them already

    £500 for 32GB ? No, just no.

    RAM costing £150 for 2x8GB now is making me keep my older 3570k, I want to change it out for the 8700k but with no stock and RAM being pricy it's hard to upgrade when all I want it for is BF1 and newer AAA games.

    Re: G.Skill breaks 4x8GB RGB DDR4 speed record with 4,266MHz kit

    I'm still trying to work out if anything is actually 'faster' than 3200/3000 when it seems all they really do is raise cas latency. perhaps this is ok in non fps scenarios but then rgb really?
