Team Group, a leading maker of high-performance dynamic random access memory modules, has announced the world's first and yet the only memory sticks officially rated to run at whopping 3.0GHz. The new Xtreeme Limited Edition modules have all chances to become enthusiasts' favourite memory in the coming months.

The Team Xtreem DDR3 3000 Limited Edition 4GB memory modules are designed to operate at 3000MHz with CL11 13-13-35 latency settings on systems powered by Intel Core i-series 3000 "Ivy Bridge" central processing units and Intel Z77 platforms. The modules comply to XMP v1.3 specification, hence, should work at full speed on virtually any advanced mainboard with appropriate microprocessor. The extreme DRAM sticks utilize 8-layer printed-circuit board and bifurcated heatspreaders to ensure proper signal quality and cooling.

Unfortunately, Team Group claims that its PC3-24000 memory modules will only work in pairs, hence, it is theoretically impossible to install 16GB of such ultra high-speed memory into one PC. The modules also work only in dual-channel mode, hence, cannot be installed into PCs with quad-channel memory sub-systems.

Pricing of Team Xtreem PC3-24000/DDR3 3000MHz 8GB (2*4GB) memory kits is unknown. Keeping in mind that 16GB of DDR3 memory at 2.8GHz costs $600, do not expect 8GB of DDR3 memory at 3GHz to cost less than $300.

it makes a difference on APU's in gaming. but it doesn't make much sense in the cpu world. except if you run a bandwidth intensive algorithm.

Yup APUs do show a gain with increased RAM frequency because the GPU can use it but I doubt any Llano APU is going to be able to run the IMC at anything close to 3.0 GHz.

Neither Llano nor IB would gain enough performance to even come close to justifying the price. 2133 MHz. seems to be more than enough for APUs and expensive for the small returns.

For those who don't know this over-priced, higher frequency RAM is just R&D for DDR4, which has no benefit for most desktop users at the moment. Servers will benefit from DDR4 eventually but even they are not bottlenecked in most cases with DDR3 @ 1333 MHz.
