Aside from brand, they are practically all the same and probably the best bet on finding 3000 CL14. Pcpartpicker is also great at comparing prices, I’m on a phone right now so I can’t pull reasonable prices out of my ass as they would be in Canadian dollars.
As my system is designed to run deep learning experiment, I would like to use 1080ti (11Gb) graphic card. (AMD 1900X + X399 Motherboard)
My main concern is simply to utilize the RAM configuration that works reasonably among these devices – don’t want to mismatch RAM either too advanced/expensive to the setup, or too low-end so as not to be able to carry out the capability of what the CPU/GPU can do.
In deep learning task, A.F.A.I.K, the most frequent tasks for CPU is to move a large amount of data to the GPU for calculation.
Budget I wish to be below 300 USD if possible, but it’s flexible.
No need ECC. I am not sure if I will upgrade to 64G in the future. Would 16x4 (Dual rank) possibly slow down the RAM speed?
Also, would you suggest b-dei? or not necessary? thanks!
Thank you! I was as well looking into this b-die finder, and glad to know you think it’s reasonable pick.
It does cap you speed a bit but the dual ranked memory helps to give some of it back.
has a bit of info on the dual ranked
Samsung B-die is the best on the market, you could get by without it tho, its nice but not needed to get decent speeds. Honestly Idk how latency dependent your work load is, if its all on the GPU probably wont matter a ton.
If the option are 8gbx4 for $300 for 3200 CL14 vs 16gbx4 at 3000 cl16($310) id prob go for the more memory
Oh sorry! I got it. What you were saying was a hypothetical comparison. I got it now. I just searched a bit on the internet, and found 3000 cl16 16Gb version seems to be rare. I’ll keep searching. thanks!
Thanks for the great site!
I narrow down my search and found this one seems to have great deal:
Just wondering does RAM differ between Intel and non-Intel CPU/Motherboard platform?
This one said tested on Intel X99 and 100 for fast speed. Should I be worried that it doesn’t perform so for non-Intel platform?
Yes, following your suggestion, I am planning getting 4 sticks 16gb each (CL16 version).
I checked the pcpartpicker website and this memory stick model is compatible to the motherboard I’m planning to use (MSI X399 Carbon), but I just got confused by the product page on newegg, as I saw some RAMs specifying “for AMD” in the description, and for the one above it only said “tested on X99 or 100”.
Any difference for the RAM compatibility for AMD or Intel platform?
so im thinking of GIGABYTE X399 AORUS PRO and 1st Gen RYZEN Threadripper 1900X,
dont know what ram to use, not really interested in overclocking, and all this info in forum is overwhelming. basically is there a prefered way to populate ram slots, all i need is 32g.
2x16 or 4x8, i see theres 2 banks of 4 slots on MB. i was looking at the gskill flareX
