Comment reply on The Rapidly Rising Cost Of RAM

what is going up is DDR3 memory. i personally believe that the increase in price is intentional because they want the market to adopt DDR4 faster than when we got DDR3. basically, RAM manufacturing companies have slowed down or stopped making DDR3 and now they're making DDR4 to stock it up. they'll slowly squeeze all the profits they can out of DDR3, and when the price gets high enough and they get close to running out, they'll launch DDR4 and make massive profits. not only that, current motherboards only accept DDR3, so people will be replacing entire rigs.

they're hoping to force one last profit cycle out of the desktop market before everything goes to tablets and smartphones and cloud storage.

nice to see a review that actually factors in the price difference and overclockability of the different chipsets. it's irritating when reviewers talk about the i5-3570k and the FX-8350 like the cpu and motherboards for them all cost the same.

it has little to no effect right now. games havent even come close to using up the bandwidth of 2.0, let alone taking advantage of 3.0. the only time you see a performance boost with it now is fancy benchmarks.

i see that A85XMA-E35 actually has a heat sink on the voltage modules. maybe it won't have the heat problems that the asrock and other mini-ITX FM2 Boards did.

i've looked around and can't find a way to submit a feature request or suggestion, so i guess i'll just drop it here.

can you add onboard USB 3.0 connectors when sorting through motherboards? neither newegg nor ncix or anyone else lets me search that way either. right now i'm just clicking through every AM3+ motherboard looking for the cheapest one with onboard USB 3.0 instead of just rear panel...

sweet!

hey, is it possible to add the number of PCI-E x16 slots to the chart when looking at motherboards?
