Intel is poised to launch its X99-based chipset in September, where we should see the launch of the 16-threaded processor from the company - the Core i7-5960X. Well, DDR4 is what will be getting slotted into the motherboards, something that has just hit Japan retail shelves.

The DDR4 RAM is being sold in 16GB and 32GB modules, which are priced at $350 and $685, respectively. Expensive, but you could actually build a system with 128GB of RAM, which is a great thing for high-perfomance and enthusiast users. Intel should better introduce us to both DDR4 and its X99 chipset at the upcoming IDF event, so continue checking back until then.
