G.Skill has announced its latest 4000MHz DDR4 SO-DIMM Ripjaws series memory kit which is claimed to be world’s fastest RAM so far. This kit brings faster clocks and improved timing when it is compared to G.Skill’s previous SO-DIMM kit.
G.Skill Ripjaws Series Boost DDR4 SO-DIMM Memory Speeds to 4000 MHz – Available in 32 GB Capacities
The G.Skill Ripjaws Series Boost DDR4 SO-DIMM Memory Speed at 4000MHz which is available in 32GB Capacities. The Ripjaws SO-DIMM memory is targeting very selected range of Mini-ITM motherboards which offer SO-DIMM support. It is for current generation motherboard based on Intel and AMD chipset there are few of the SO-DIMM layouts available.
The recently launched X299 motherboard from ASRock and X299-E ITX/ac is one of these. They feature support for four SO-DIMMs, the motherboard can take full advantage of such high-performance memory when it is paired with Intel Core i9 series processors or comparable processor in performance.
Speaking of memory kit itself, this DDR4 Ripjaws SO-DIMM memory is available in one configuration as far as the specifications are concerned. It uses latest Samsung B-die DDR4 ICs and maintains a voltage at 1.35V. The 4000 MHz kit maintains CL18 (CL-18-18-18-38) timings and comes with a capacity of 32 GB (4 x 8 GB). G.Skill has performed some internal tests with the memory kit on the Core i9-7900X processor and end up with a bandwidth of 101106 MB/s in read which is clearly fast.
The G.Skill SO-DIMM 4000 MHz Ripjaws memory kit is expected to hit retail in Q1 2018 and we can hope that there will be more boards that come with SO-DIMM form factor coming out soon.
