Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
G.Skill has introduced their newest memory modules and this time we get a new RipJaws4 kit. The new kit isn’t a small one as it comes with a total memory of 128GB distributed across eight 16GB modules. The new kit is the first DDR4 128GB kit with a speed of 2800MHz and it comes with CL16 timings. The memory modules use the latest 20nm fabrication process by Samsung and they’re said to take performance to a whole new level.
“During development of these DDR4 16GB modules, we see amazing future potential for 128GB (16GBx8) memory kits in extreme high capacity operation on upcoming platforms,” says Tequila Huang, Vice President of Research & Development, G.SKILL. “We will be witnessing the beginning of a new set of standards for extreme capacity and performance DDR4 memory kits on both current and future computing platforms. Needless to say, we are very excited for this release.”
16GB memory modules aren’t anything new as such, they have already been available in the server market. Now that capacity is paving its way to consumer memory modules, suitable for workstation level workloads where high capacity memory is vital. The new quad-channel kit has been validated on the latest ASUS X99 Rampage V Extreme motherboard.
The new modules aren’t just available at large capacities and speed, you can also find smaller kits with less than 8 modules and frequencies ranging from DDR4-2133 MHz to the aforementioned DDR4-2800 MHz. The modules also come backed by G.Skill’s limited lifetime warranty.
