  1. G.Skill has claimed the world record for the fastest, overclocked DDR4 memory by boosting a single 4GB module of their Ripjaws 4 Series DDR4 RAM up to 4,255 MHz with timings of 18-18-18-63. As the modules are typically clocked at 2,400 MHz,...

    This would be impressive if they achieved said overclock across a quad channel array, overclocking a single stick on a single channel is so bloody pointless. The original quad channel setup at stock speeds will outperform a 77% overclocked single channel any day. It's not like there are any benchmarks that will show any advantage to a single channel setup vs a multi channel setup like super pi for CPU's. How this has any effect on advancing the technology at hand is not obvious if at all present.

    I think it's OK for a proof of concept, still on early stages of DDR4 deployment. When they can tune up the timings across all DIMMs to allow use in multi-channel setups they'll have a winner in their hands -even if they lower the clock frequencies a bit to not require liquid nitrogen all the time.

    Yeah I know, decent written English is of no concern. The massive leaps forward in mobile technology are what we need to be applauding.

    Just think, another generation of phone technology, and we won't even be able to understand the correction. Keep up the good work..(y)

    FWIW, I understood your first semi-cryptic message. But then, I've been here for quite a while, and I've seen much worse.
