DDR4 memory is the latest JEDEC standard and is the recommended memory to future-proof your desktop PC build. Make sure your motherboard supports DDR4 when buying this memory. With speeds ranging from 2133MHz to 4266MHz while decreasing energy usage to 1.2 Volts, DDR4 is the perfect combination of faster clock rates, lower power utilization, and increased memory capacity. We stock a diverse selection of DDR4 manufacturers, including Crucial, Corsair, Mushkin, HyperX, Adata, and more to make sure we have the right memory for you. DDR4 memory is truly the RAM of the next generation.
FAQ & Section Info
What is DDR4 RAM?
Double Data Rate Fourth Generation (DDR4) is a newer version of computer memory that provides higher memory clock speeds ranging from 2133MT/s (Million transfers per second) to 4266 MT/s. Along with this incredibly high speed, is a lower voltage requirement, decreasing from 1.65V from the last generation to 1.2V for DDR4. DDR4 Memory modules use 288 pins instead of 240 pins, allowing for a wider bandwidth as well.
Do I need DDR4 for my system?
DDR4 Desktop Ram is recommnended if you're going to create a system that is performance driven. Such tasks as large scale 3D editing, HD to 4K Video editing, and other similar high-performance systems that require the most capable hardware available.
Is DDR4 compatible with my current system?
If you are looking to upgrade your system in order to support DDR4 memory, you will most likely need to upgrade your motherboard. DDR4 RAM is a 288-pin module, and the two previous generations were 240-pin, which means that DDR4 is not backwards compatible
Is DDR4 worth buying?
As CPUs evolve, the rest of your hardware will to to step up as well. DDR4 provides higher clock speeds with lower energy costs, giving your processor faster memory to work with, in turn creating a better user experience. If you don't have the proper memory to work with your processor, then you'll have a bottleneck in performance. This makes DDR4 a valuable new hardware for system builders that want to future-proof their next PC.
