Hot, synchronous DRAM: Next-gen memory tech spec DDR5 lands

Basically the same as DDR4 when measured in cycles, new revs don't really do anything to improve latency. Process shrinks do but the effect is pretty small. You get a bigger bang for the buck if Intel or AMD improve the memory controller on their CPU than from upgrading to a newer rev of DDR.
