Yeah, it came when we all had our backs turned. First there was DDR memory. Then there was DDR2 aka "who needs memory this fast" memory. Now there's DDR3, the ultimate overkill. Will you buy it?

Let's not jump the guns here. JEDEC just finalized the specs this week. The speeds are low, the timings horrible and the price astronomical. It still manages to outperform high-end DDR2 in some select situations, which bodes good. I'm sure it in time will be the only real choice in time, but we still got ways to go.

I've just bought 2gb of ddr2 memory, so it will have to wait a very long time before I do upgrade, but no doubt, ddr3 will become the norm soon.

The lower power requirement and the lower running temperature will make it a natural fit for future notebook systems.

I agree, we need to wait for the systemboards to catch up with this new RAM.

I said "no, dont need it" also . It's gotten to the point that the technology is so far past the point of what the average "user" needs it's absurd. out side of high end games , video editing and 3d modeling, computers of even a couple years ago can keep up with user needs for web ,email and word processing , but to each their own :flowers: the current "hot rods" of the computer world seem to me like Ferarris (or my favorite, Saleen S7R's) , definitely "cool" but how often are are doing something that uses a fraction of all that power ? (outside of a race course , where are you going to be able to wind out the speedo to 180+mph ? if you've had the traing to keep from infusing your self into the pavement ) but to each their own poison. :trumpet: ( and I really want a Saleen S7 and a 8 core Mac Pro :thumbsup:)

Sounds a bit like the

"we'll never need more than 640k RAM"

or

"no one will ever need more than 40M hard drive".


It's another cycle, and we'll all move toward it.

Odd , I have 640m memory (can't see ever really needing more )
plus I have a 40g hard drive , :flowers:
does this mean I'll need 6.40 gigs of mem. and a 40 Terabyte hard drive in the next comming years? :thumbsup:

I wouldn't classify all these things as a super computer just yet... VooDoos are more along the line of supers right now.. and the Saleen S7 bodies to match.
