I am waiting for DDR5, hoping that it will come out this year or maybe early next year.
Is there a particular reason why you need to wait for DDR5? I feel a lot of people want the newest, but I do question the benefit. While DDR5 will appear to be faster, the latencies will also increase drastically. For example, the first gen DDR4 is only 2133, and because of the significant increase in latency, it is actually slower than a DDR3 running at 1866 and with a tighter timing. Also if you look at the current processors, I would believe none of the processors, regardless of AMD or Intel is benefiting significantly from those rams running at 3600 or more in real life usage. It looks wonderful from memory specific benchmarks for most users, that's all.
