DDR5 Hype, look at the potential

Specs: Windows 10 Pro 64bit, i5-6600K[delid]@4.8GHz/4.3GHz@1.4v LLC=6 | 2x4GB Crucial-DDR4-2133CL15@14-14-14-28 1T 2700MHz@1.35v
Upcoming DDR5 tech in 2019:

Dual channel comparison ddr4 2133mhz/2666mhz & ddr5 4400mhz\6400mhz:

2*64*2133/8=
34.128 GB/s

2*64*2666/8=
42.656 GB/s

2*64*4400/8=
70.400 GB/s

2*64*6400/8=
102.400 GB/s

More than double the memory bandwidth, makes me smile.

octa channel ddr5@6400mhz:

8*64*6400/8=
409.600 GB/s for servers, not even overclocked.

P.S. current world record for DDR4 is 5543 MHz (4000~ish MHz stable and usable)
I bet we will find 8000MHz+ somewhere around the end of 2019 on HWbot.org

What are your opinions about this topic?
Are you guys as hyped as I am?
I doubt it, haha

"Are you guys as hyped as I am?"

Nope. The hoopla & hype is typical every time there's an improvement or upgrade in technology. I'm guessing you weren't around for all the changes - FPM SIMMs to EDO > EDO SIMMs to SDRAM > SDRAM to DDR > DDR to DDR2, etc. I skipped RDRAM (Rambus) because it never really panned out. By the time everything else catches up to take full advantage of DDR5 bandwidth, DDR6 will be out. It's a never ending cycle. As always, there will be the early adopters who will plunk down big bucks for the bleeding edge technology & then brag about it, but those of us who have lived thru all the other upgrades will sit back & wait until the time is right.

Nope. Some of us prefer the trailing-edge, not the bleeding-edge. Way cheaper that way...

DDR5 willl definitely boost IGP performance. AMD's Ryzen-based APUs already have surprisingly good IGP performance; they're right around the performance of a GeForce GT 1030. However, they are still being held back by memory bandwidth, even with fast dual-channel DDR4 kits.
