News First Native DDR4-3200 DRAM for the Lazy

If it's not booting a JEDEC standard for ultimate compatibility, surely there will be at least one board that doesn't just "work" out of the box without memory training....... Defeating the "lazy" appeal in at least one configuration...

Although Century Micro's D4U3200 memory doesn't require any human intervention, the CL timings leave a lot to be desired. Century Micro set the timings to CL22-22-22-52. Fortunately, the memory modules run at 1.2V, so there should be room for optimization at the cost of a higher operating voltage.
Those are some shockingly bad memory timings. Nearly all DDR4-3200 kits on the market offer CAS latency of 16 or below. This RAM at stock settings would have latency on par with some of the cheapest DDR4-2133 and 2400 kits. Perhaps that allows them to avoid compatibility issues, but what's the point of offering the higher native speed if performance will be poor without manually adjusting the timings?

yeap this is shockingly bad, even C16 is easy with cheap memory chips, not C22...

You most propably get better timing by using some memory profiles. This just have 3200 with lose timing as an starting point that works on everything without any tinkering.
