CES 2014 - It's always fun to find a few diamonds in the rough at CES, and luckily this year held a few as usual. Kingston was demonstrating a whopping 384 GB's of its new DDR4 running in a blacked-out server. For those in the know, there currently isn't a publicly released CPU/chipset combination that supports DDR4 memory.

In order to recieve clearance for this demo, Kingston had to black out key areas of the chassis, which means essentially everything other than the heat sinks and DDR4 sticks. We speculate this is Grantley-EP and Wellsburg PCH. If so, the server supports Thunderbolt and features DDR4 speeds of 2400 and 3200MHz. However, these specs are pure conjecture.

Of course we tried to 'play the angles' to get a view underneath at the new unnannounced chipset. Unfortunately, Kingston delivered on their promise to Intel by making a more detailed analysis of the chipset impossible through use of the large black covers underneath the plexiglass cover.

Of course, we have the picture of the DDR4 actually up and running during the demo.

The quest for benchmark world records led Paul further and further down the overclocking rabbit hole. SSDs and RAID controllers were a big part of that equation, allowing him to push performance to the bleeding edge. Finding the fastest and most extreme storage solutions led to experience with a myriad of high-end enterprise devices. Soon testing SSDs and Enterprise RAID controllers at the limits of their performance became Paul's real passion, one that is carried out through writing articles and reviews.
