Seems a good price for fast 8GB DDR3 kit. Next best price I can see is nearly £70. Given the current state of the aftermarket PC marker this doesnt seem too bad.

Hopefully this helps someone.

Features:-
- Module Type 240Pin Unbuffered DIMM Non ECC
- CL-tRCD-tRP-tRAS 11-13-13-35
- DRAM Density 128x8 / 256x8 / 512x8
- Data transfer bandwidth 19,200MB/Sec (PC3 19200)
- Heat Sink Aluminum heat-sink
- Working voltage 1.55V-1.65V
- Warranty Lifetime warranty
- Haswell & AMD Richland compatible

Quick note to anyone who initially sees this and thinks its a high price, its slightly higher than other DDR3 8GB kits posted here yes but bare in mind this is 2400mhz ram, the other kits are 1333/1600mhz, so theres a big speed difference.

Thanks
so does this mean a pc with this ram could run 24/16 or 3/2 or 1.5 times faster than a pc with
1600 ram

It doesn't quite work like that but for the sake of say an extra £10 it's probably worth having the speed boost in my opinion.
I still remember paying 32 pounds for my gskill 2133mhz ddr3 2x4gb kit LOL

I paid £60ish for 2x8gb of ddr4...what the hell happened?!
Had my hopes up and then seen it’s DDR3, still though, good price given current situation

I still remember paying just over that for some 16gb ddr4!

I need some ddr3 again now and the prices make me a sad panda

It depends what you're doing with it.

If your usage scenario can utilize the extra memory bandwidth, then you'll see linear performance improvement.
However, for anything outside of synthetic benchmarks, memory bandwidth alone is rarely* the bottleneck.
For more typical usage scenarios you should expect minimal difference between DDR3 1600 and DDR3 2400; in the region of 0 - 2%.

*The only real-world exception I can think of is with the new Ryzen APUs; their Vega cores are *highly* memory bandwidth constrained, and so benefit greatly from faster memory. (when the GPU is being utilized)


There's one other factor, and that's architecture; some architectures tie elements of their system bus to the memory clockspeed.

Ryzen for instance runs its Infinity Fabric (the bus that handles communication between CPU CCXs, memory & PCIe) at the clockspeed of the memory. So by increasing your memory clockspeed, you also increase PCIe bandwidth, and more importantly intra‑CCX communication speed inside the CPU.

Mobile devices sucking up all the production capacity..
I bought 3 x 2GB (9GB) ddr3 ram years ago, paid £90 and that was before the price drop.
Does anyone know what difference between ddr3 & ddr4 as I see a lot of new pcs with ddr 4 & think I may have seen ddr 5

DDR4 is what PCs from the last ~2-3 years have been using. They are not interchangeable, you cannot use DDR3 in a DDR4 system and vice versa. You have not seen any systems using DDR5 yet, that's still to come (You might have seen GDDR5, that's graphics cards memory)
Hihi i remember when i get 2x 2x8gb corsair ddr3 2400 for £60 each and amazon send me 3 pack ;d it was the best deal after i sell one pack and from thath date i forgot about ram maybe. In next 5 years

That claim has been dissected by analysts and - based on types of memory affected, mobile phone sales, quantity of ram shipped in each year etc - it doesn't really hold up.

It's the same as the HDD prices where people blamed it on the floods. But then you look at how quickly the factories resumed full production, you look at WD & Seagates record profits etc ... the floods don't even come close to explaining why prices were 2x-3x higher for years afterwards.

It's price-fixing.
just found 8Gb of the corsair vangence 2400 in a draw, paid premium for that and only used it for a week as 8Gb wasn't enough working with VMs, this is about same price i paid 2 years ago tho

Typical. I've been scouring selling forums looking for that exact same ram setup.

you can't have scoured hard enough, its on av forums since last week when i first found it
