Speed is nice but don't forget that latency is where it's at. Not a single one of these new kits is CL7. I fail to see what the celebration is all about.

At least, they perfectly fit the look of a GTX 690 :P

IMO they don't need to be cl7 when they are 2800 mhz cl of 11 is fine b/c the bandwidth increase will outweigh something like a 1600 mhz kit at cl7.

I don't know...RAM speed is hardly a bottleneck in modern computer systems. Getting 2800MHz RAM makes me think of Monster cables - a lot of gimmick, huge price, no gain. :haha::haha::haha:

But then again, some people DO have the money to burn so why not?
