Well, I came from a 10 year old PC with DDR3, so I had no plan on investing in years old technology(DDR4) when I was upgrading for once. 🙂
And I still believe this is'nt the final performance of DDR5.
Have patience, things will get better.
This is the same reasoning I made but currently I have spent two times more than DDR4 to go slower.
Well, since I came from DDR3 I don't have any DDR4 reference so its ok for me.
I was very close to 100% stability in XMP-1 with 4 sticks 64GB at 5200MHz, that's why I have hope at least.
But I know I'm lucky as well.
However I was unstable at original BIOS 0503. Upgraded to 0702 and saw a lot more performance and stability.
However all these 08xx BIOSes after that has all been much worse stability than 0703 was so it makes me a bit worried.
With 0703 I could have computer on 24/7 and do lots of gaming and only get some strange crash every 3rd day or so.
You have a strange concept of stability. If the pc crashes while in game it's not stable Ã°Å¸ËœÂ�
So you don't achieved 5.2GHz with 4 sticks.
