When the new Haswell-E processor launched in 2014 it brought with it a new era in workstation class computing. As you may know most of the power comes from the new 8-core processor and enhanced memory controller but, none of that would be possible without a good set of memory to drive it all. Of course, all of the things we know about memory still apply. Faster frequencies mean more bandwidth and lower timings usually translate into lower latency and more performance.
