More speed. More bandwidth. More efficient.In the ever-changing world of technology, any component more than half a decade old is usually in need of an update. At seven years old and counting, that's exactly the state DDR3 memory is in: computers can only do so much with it.Since the introduction of DDR3 memory technology in 2007, processors have doubled in capability, SSDs have revolutionized throughput, and graphics cards have drastically increased frame rates, leaving memory as a limiting factor. With Crucial DDR4 Desktop Memory, crush the DDR3 memory bottleneck and unlock a new standard of performance.CT8G4DFS8213 is a 8GB DDR4 desktop module that operates at speeds up to 2133 MT/s and has a CL15 latency.
