ThinkComputers reports Intel had a DDR4 reference test platform running at the IDF in San Francisco. This system used a Haswell-E processor on a X99 chipset based motherboard and with DDR4 memory.
The DDR4 memory controller actually sits on the processor itself. New DDR4 memory modules only use 1.2v compared to 1.65v or 1.5v used with DDR3 memory. The X99 chipset will use 288-pin DIMM connectors. This memory controller will support quad channel memory with frequencies of 2133 MHz to 2667 MHz OC+. Intel’s Haswell-E platform is expected to arrive between 2014-2015.
