Default DDR3 Ram Sticks

So I was just looking at Umart (the computer store I use in brisbane, it is cheapest one I can find), and noticed that there is now listings for DDR3 ram.

Umart Online

Wondering how much of a massive performance increase this would give you? lol, no way would I buy it for another year or two cause it will be crazy expensive, but yeah, huge upgrade from DDR2? And what mobos can support DDR3 anyway?

Cheers,
Sydz

Default Re: DDR3 Ram Sticks

At this point, the performance over high end DDR2, is not much. They still need to tweak it out. Like lowering the timings. It will take a couple of years, to get DDR3 into the mix.

There are a quite a few motherboards that support DDR3:
Gigabyte P35C-DS3R
ASUS P5K3 Deluxe
