Corsair's 5000 MHz RAM

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently found out that Corsair sells a 2x16 GB kit of 5000 MHz RAM and for some reason the one thing that came to my mind was "LTT should try to get as much of it onto a mobo and make the fastest RAM Disk ever just for the heck of it"

Test any games or applications on it and see the performance, IMO it would be pretty sick.

Why ? There will be almost no performance gains and I doubt any imc ( either from Intel or AMD ) could reach such frequency.


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

3100.

B550m TuF plus.

Hyper x rgb 8 gig stick. (MJR or CJR  i still don't know lol).

1650 super.

CX450.

MX500.

NX500.

I'm referring to the performance of a RAM Disk, not just the frequency for general performance

 

Load time comparisons to a variety of SSD's and what not.

If your not saturating the bandwidth , there will be little to no performance gains.

Thats why gen 4 ssds for causal users don't make sense, because there is almost no difference in performance between them and gen 3.

Okay I get what you're saying now. Though still I feel like if anyone would do it, it would be someone at LTT even if just to show the marginal improvement or the any use-cases that might take advantage of such performance

OH and there's only like 5 mobo's that support it lol and they're all x570

Yea getting to 2500 FCLK with zen 2 just won't happen 

So even if they got the kit , they won't be able to get to such frequency.

okay so this i don't get

why "won't" it happen? why would Corsair push out a product, listing mobo's that support the 5000 mhz ram with the same chipset, if it wouldn't work anyway? Then what's the point if they already have 4800 mhz ram?

Architectural limits.

Branding really, or to show off. 

Obviously this could be wrong but at the end of that day. there's no point in getting it.

g skill segment their ram better than corsair, and GN already did a buncha tests with fast ram and comet lake, there isn't much to be gained from using "ddr 5000" for marketing than the ram disk video LTT already did, 

 

Most of corsair's lower end product is just low bins wrapped in RGB but with a price premium on it, the ddr5000 kit for 500usd isn't any better than
