DDR4 memory

So I was looking at the wiki for this and it says the DDR3 only supports a max speed of 2133. Now I know this is false as I seen as high as 2866. So DDR4 supports high speeds and lower voltage which is nice but what does this mean for gamers? Do this really mean a huge improvement or not?

No, just like DDR3 wasn't a huge improvement, or DDR2 before it.

Intel CPU's won't register anything over 2133 MHz I think. Some limit like that.
AMD has a higher limit because they depend a lot more on APU's.

what this means for gamers is that you will be able to realize that you just died .01 secs faster

It won't mean significant difference until Skylake.

PC programs and especially games are produced to use much ram not to use fast ram so it won't help much.
