RAM going DDR4 starting next month According to major memory maker Crucial, DDR4 RAM will be available starting next month.
The company provided a comparison to DDR3, and the new memory will use only 1.2Volts, while moving to double the speed of DDR3 Memory. DDR4 will have a base speed of 2133MHz, and 4GB will be the smallest density.

DDR4 will be 100 percent faster than its predecessor, have 300 percent more density, and require 20 percent less voltage. Finally, a smaller die will allow for more memory per RAM and up to 16GB per stick.

It is important to note that DDR4 has a different architecture, so if you are in the market you will need a motherboard that can handle it.

This is incorrect. Most graphics card use either GDDR5 or GDDR3 which is not the same as DDR5 (doesn't exist). Usually when people try to map these against each other (not really that useful) GDDR3 is comparable to DDR2. GDDR5 would be comparable to DDR3.

The average woman would rather have beauty than brains, because the average man can see better than he can think.
