G.SKILL has written to HEXUS today to inform us of its new 'world's fastest' Ripjaws 4 DDR4 128GB (16GBx8) memory kit. The headline speed rating that the new G.SKILL DDR4 128GB memory kit can attain is 2,800MHz, CL16-16-16-36. This new 1.35V memory kit benefits from the use of high capacity 20nm Samsung memory ICs.
The G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 DDR4 128GB memory kit comprises eight 16GB memory modules. These are the newest 16GB capacity DDR4 consumer-class memory modules available and were previously reserved for use in servers, according to G.SKILL. Samsung makes these memory chips, manufactured using 8Gb ICs produced on its 20nm fabrication process.
In your DDR4 system the new kit will run in quad-channel mode. The kit supports Intel XMP 2.0 to provide trouble-free, stable, yet extreme performance overclocking on your X99 motherboard.
This 128GB memory kit has been validated by G.SKILL on the ASUS X99 Rampage V Extreme motherboard equipped with an Intel Core-i7 5820K Haswell-E processor. You can see a screenshot from G.SKILL's stress-testing of the memory kit below. (click to zoom in)
As is usual for G.SKILL it will be providing other kits using these 16GB Samsung IC equipped modules. Less capacious kits and kits with speeds rated from DDR4-2133MHz to DDR4-2800MHz will be made available in due course.
The new memory kit will come with the usual G.SKILL lifetime warranty and support. Pricing and availability of this new 128GB kit is yet to be announced, a product page for this or any other kits based upon the new Samsung ICs is yet to be published.
