About DDR4 : It’s Faster, Power Efficient, Cooler and has bigger memory modules.

Computers have much changed in the last one decade. In 1999, when I bought a PC, it had 64 mb RAM. Now we are not only speaking of RAMs many times higher, but also reached DDR4 standard. But why should you transition to DDR4 Memory or RAM ?

Here are the Benefits of DDR4 Memory or RAM

DDR4 is faster

Even at the baseline speed, DDR4 delivers twice the bandwidth with 2133 MT/s (million transfers per second) compared with the base DDR3 1600 MT/s. With optimizations, games, graphics and applications have the potential to load faster and run more smoothly.

DDR4 uses a lot less power and runs cooler

With each new generation of CPU and GPU architecture, system power consumption and heat generation become more and more important. DDR4 modules operate at an ultra-low standard 1.2 volts compared to the 1.5 and 1.65 volts of DDR3 memory, allowing DDR4 memory to consume significantly less power and generate less heat.

DDR4 memory modules can get bigger

DDR3 is limited to 8GB modules for a maximum of 32GB on standard four-socket motherboards. DDR4 will have the ability to enable 16GB per module by 2015. A motherboard with eight memory slots will be upgradeable to an amazing 128GB or DDR4 memory.
