Introduction:

There’s only so much a CPU can do. It could be as fast as possible, and your computer will STILL need the memory to properly handle the processes. But what happens if a user would like to burn a disc, listen to iTunes, and play FEAR 2 all at once? The folks at GeIL have realized this common problem, and released the all new Evo One 12GB DDR3-1600 Hexa kit. Why 12GB you ask? Because who the hell wouldn’t love to tell their friends they have enough RAM to store Vista 64-bit on?

From GeIL.com.tw:

16 Comments... What's your say?

  1. Frink NFrank: Yes I neglected to take into account the case of triple channel. I was looking at it from a single DIMM perspective as the first comment was in relation to DIMM capacity rather than speed.

  2. yeah what he said, pretty much. I would keep praying for more RAM slots rather than higher single stick capacity. The only benefit of having DDR3 over DDR2 is the higher bandwidth, but the speed definitely suffers.

    • “The only benefit of having DDR3 over DDR2 is the higher bandwidth, but the speed definitely suffers.”

      Since we are only talking nano seconds, the order of magnitude of bandwidth over latency is staggering. I assure you DDR3 7-7-7-24 @1600 is quite a bit faster than DDR2 @1066. Especially if you factor in the bandwidth benefits of triple channel that you cannot get from DDR2.

  3. Still only 2GB per memory stick. When will higher density (e.g. 4 GB) sticks come out? Or aren’t the memory companies re-tooling and moving to smaller fab sizes?

    • Well, They already have 4GB Sticks and that’s all most mobo’s can handle. The real problem that most people over look is that you dont really need more than 3GB of RAM. Most people will never use it all. I have 4GB and the only time I can get it to break 3GB is when I run Crysis on maxed out settings and have Photoshop, Movie Maker, and about 10 other programs running in the background. It is really the Speed that matters, not the actual size. Also, Its better to have 4 -1GB sticks than it is to have 1 – 4GB stick, and that is something that will never change.

      Eaxmple of a Kingston 4GB RAM stick…
