Great price if your not too fussed about speed, considering 16 GB 3000 MHz is selling just north of £240, I imagine trying to clear stock.

2400Mhz... no thanks.


Didn’t you think a 1050TI was better than a 1060 3GB because the 1050TI has 4GB VRAM? Wouldn’t take computer advice off you

Shame is Prime only
This is really pretty RAM. Not a bad deal though ! too

What your point, In my pc when I overclocked my ram from 2400 MHz to 2800 MHz I got an extra 3 FPS. Wow

Back in the days when I cared about that sort of thing 3fps mattered! Nowadays as long as it boots I'm not fussed.
Is it worth to go Prime?
If you want slightly faster, Corsair Vengence RGB DDR4 2666MHz C16 XMP 2.0 are just under £40 more

Wow! I haven't been keeping track of component prices since I built my PC in September 16. I paid £54 for 16GB of 2400 MHz Vengeance DDR4 at that stage.

It depend on your games. if you checked digital foundry video. in witcher 3 for example 3200mhz it has about 15%ish fps increase which is alot.

It is better when you run out of Vram on the 1060 when it becomes a slideshow.

It is all relative.
Yes 15% extra if you average 53fps is great. You get the magic 60fps.
Whereas if you are getting 100fps, 115fps is pointless.

Better taking the money and upgrading the GPU in the 53fps example.

No mention of resolution or RAM timings.

You'll find slower clock memory has tighter timings which is equally important at which point the speed ratings between them is negligible.

my point is Ram speed can make a significant different. also 15% extra performance is 15% extra performance. i mean If that your logic. why are you using GPU which can do 100fps+ in the first place? why not just get lower class gpu that can just about do 60fps? and the fact is people game at different resolution and refresh rate.the fact is 15% extra performance is always appreciated.

sure, its not worth investing £50+ for 3200mhz DDR4 right now. but there was a time when it didn't differ much in price.

Frequency matter much more than Timing. you can do those calculation yourself. and they did mention resolution, its 1080p. but you are right on no mention of timing. but as professional as they are, i think they would have used same timing and brand with the frequency being the only different

Except the 15% extra performance isn’t across the board. Some applications may gain 3% while others 10. Some games may gain nothing while other up to the 15%.
So no 15% extra performance is not just that. Intel between i5 Gen 2 and 7 barely managed to eek out 20% extra in 6 years. If RAM gave 15% everyone would be over it like a fly on the windscreen.

Still kicking myself for not ordering a few more Adata 32GB/3000 packs when Amazon had them for £170 at the end of the summer
Oh well, at least I managed to get one...

From what I've observed the difference is negligible. For Intel platforms anyway.
Professional workloads are likely a different scenario.

I'm sure one of the big youtubers did a frequency vs timings test but can't seem to find it. Would be interesting to see the difference you're referring to as it's contrary to any real world speed differences I've seen. Synthetics will more often favour frequency.
You can easily overclock it to at least 2800 MHz which should be acceptable for majority of folks out there. I would spend extra £50 on upgrading GPU or SSD.
It's quite slow memory to be fair. Suprised these haven't been snapped up yet though, considered buying and selling them for a profit.

Does RAM speed REALLY matter?[Video]


Thank you, most of the time is doesn't really matter, definitely not worth the extra £40

Please stop replying to me. I already told you, you do not know what you're talking about. Ryzen has a very significant increase with faster ram.Intel also has an increase, just not to the same level.
from my findings ram speed means naff all considering what else you can get for the price difference.
Ive ran single channel 2400 through to dual 3200 on ryzen and overal it doesnt make a massive difference imo.

When people say it makes x difference this is usually in scenarios where they are looking for a difference, with all the possible hardware combos and usages in the real world any raw figure gets massively diluted.
This is a good deal for what it is as ram prices continue to rise. Its a bit crazy. Just before Christmas the prime offer for the 3000 version was £154.
From the research ive done it makes very little difference, unless you have a powerful graphics card like the 1080, where you can get 10% gains. Lesser cards it makes virtually no noticeable difference.

Samsung are bringing more manufacturing capacity online as they are scared the Chinese may start entering the market that is so profitable at the moment.

Smartphones are whats eating up all the DDR4.
HOT!
Looks nice but my motherboard lays flat so the ram is hidden by the GPU and 24pin ATX cable
fancy slow memory

equivalent to 1333/1600 in DDR3 terms

Just bought Kingston HyperX Fury 2x8GB 2666Mhz DDR4 for £165 at CCL.

It's not top of the cherry, but for Z370 MB and i5 8400 is better than this G.Skill imo.
I've ordered this kit a few days ago, the order shows as dispatched today Friday 12th (from Italy), arriving on Friday 19th. In case anyone cares...
