that's really ridiculous Intel.
who are all those 2400MHz and above rated rams meant for? AMD?
we all pay the same price for Intel's cpus and they are really not cheap by any means.
so why are some user able to run even 3400MHz rams with no issues and others have to stick with 1600MHz?
what kind of game is that???
ok, then let me repeat my question Amy.
another example is Skylake, top models are 6600K and 6700K - both not cheap and obviously both limited to 2133MHz.
of course there is no such limitation in the advertisements but well hidden in the specs.
so again who are all the rams and motherboards from 2400MHz up to 3600MHz ment for?
why are we all supposed to pay a lot of money for Skylake systems and then stick to 2133MHz?
is this the high creativity and productivity advertised by Intel?
as we see in the OP it's not the first generation of Intel cpus making such troubles.
it's just getting even worse...
The memory specification for these processors are clear, DDR4-1866/2133 is the specification for both processors. You can run your RAM at higher speed than that specification and benefit from it. However you would be running it "overclocked", and from our end this is not supported.
