Indeed, and it's funny that just yesterday I was asking myself 'is it really worth buying G.Skill PC4400 for just the overclocking headroom?' Now, I can safely say that yes, it is.
I am seriously hoping they follow through with this. I'm confident that they will since they've been so reluctant to DDR2 so far, and with DDR speeds constantly climbing with MUCH better timings I wouldn't see why not.
I wanna see DDR carried over to Socket M2, I'll hold onto my socket 939 system until near the end of the newer socket, snag a processor and parts for cheap, pop in my old RAM and whoosh, I'm off.
Then in 2009 when they introduce their next platform or whatever then they move to DDR3 which by then should be both affordable and wicked fast, and I'll be happy, happy, happy.
And yeah, I don't like the idea of XDR RAM, they should just stick to DDR similar to what GPU manufacturers are doing. DDR memory has been proven to have no limits as of yet, sooooo don't fix what isn't broken.
I'm so freaking happy though, this news made my day.
