    Re: Corsair announces 32GB DDR4-4333 Vengeance LPX memory kit

    Meh,maybe they should try and bring down the cost of "slower" RAM sets in the first place,but I expect they will take their time just like with hard drives. 16GB of 3000MHZ~3200MHZ DDR4 is now getting closer and closer to £200. It reminds me of when I had to pay £200 for 2GB of DDR2 and when the memory companies got fined for some earlier price fixing,it conveniently dropped in price quite a bit after that. At this point the cost of RAM is probably a major issue when speccing a new build - its actually similar in cost to many CPUs now.

    It is hilarious when higher speed DDR3 at the same clockspeed can be had for less than DDR4!!

    In the end even though I am stuck on an old IB Core i7,the overpriced RAM is really putting me off upgrading. Luckily I do have some 16GB low latency DDR4 running at 2400MHZ which cost me only £56 earlier in the year,but looking at new CPUs from Intel and AMD especially for certain games I play,it is going to mean the performance of any newer CPU is going to be held back,but ultimately I am not going to pay more for the blasted RAM than the actual cost of the CPU!!

    You are not the only one not upgrading to newer platforms because of the RAM pricing, Amazon and Ebuyer had the 1600 for sale at £135 last week, if I could have gotten some 16GB RAM for under £100 I'd have bought that instantly with the free games it would've been one hell of a bargain, shame on the RAM producers for their price fixing.

    how many people are realistically going to buy kits like that especially when there is so little actual rear world performance gain Evan the price for basic ddr4 ram kits are ridiculous anyway since i built my rig the price of the kit i used has nearly dabbled.

    Re: Corsair announces 32GB DDR4-4333 Vengeance LPX memory kit

    Same here, I'm still running a Westmere Xeon Hexcore for this very reason, I know that I can get about 40-50% extra perf in IPC from newer chips, but the cost of the ram is putting me off.
    It really comes to something when you can get a motherboard and cpu combo for less than the cost of the Ram for the build >.<

    I'd buy it, if it ran that fast on a Ryzen-based System.

    It'll sell well enough, there's plenty of gullible people out there with more money than sense.

    Generally either people with a hell of a lot of money, or are buying for the hell of it because they wanna overclock.

    DDR4 pricing is a joke now. 32GB(4x8) of DDR3 cost me £80 ~2years ago.

    DD4 pricing is why I am still running a couple of Ivy Bridge PCs.

    Re: Corsair announces 32GB DDR4-4333 Vengeance LPX memory kit

    https://epsnews.com/2017/09/22/expec...ly-nand-flash/

    There is good and bad news for buyers of memory devices. The good news is a deal to acquire Toshiba’s memory business may result in an oversupply of NAND flash in the first half of 2018, easing concerns of tight supply next year. However, cautious production capacity plans by leading DRAM makers means continued tight supply for DRAMs next year.

    According to market research firm DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, the three major DRAM suppliers – Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron – are slowing down their capacity expansions and technology migrations to maintain prices in 2018 at the same levels in the second half of this year. “Doing so will also help them to sustain a strong profit margin,” said DRAMeXchange.

    Global DRAM bit supply is forecast to grow 19.6 percent in 2018, while bit demand is growing at a higher rate, according to DRAMeXchange. The same scenario is happening this year. The researcher projects an annual bit supply growth rate of 19.5 percent in 2017 but bit demand growth is estimated at more than 22 percent this year.

    “Increase in memory content for smartphones and robust end demand from the server and data center markets will push the overall DRAM demand up in 2018,” according to Avril Wu, research director of DRAMeXchange, in a statement

    Although new fabs are underway to relief strained supply, they won’t be ready for mass production until 2019 at the earliest, Wu said. “Constructing a 12-inch wafer fab will take at least a year. And additional time has to be set aside for equipment installation and trial production runs.”

    Prices are insane right now. I'm hoping for a black friday deal.
    Facts don't exist, only interpretations.

    Problem is it's the Ryzen IPC and arch that makes it harder to run RAM that fast, I hope with the refresh this will be ironed out.

    Hmm,it seems they are doing it that since the Chinese are ramping up production.
