G.SKILL, the performance PC memory and peripherals specialist company, has announced the addition of DDR4 SO-DIMM module kits as part of its Ripjaws range. These modules are designed to provide the maximum performance and reliability in your laptop or AiO system, or basically any PC system which employs compact SO-DIMMs.

The new Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMMs are said to be hand-picked via G.SKILL's "rigorous and highly selective binning process". Thus G.SKILL has been able to assemble 'extreme performance' kits at up to 2800MHz 64GB (4x16GB).

Matched memory kits are marketed at the headline 2800MHz in capacities of 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32 GB and 64GB. Kits are also being produced, in the same range of capacities, rated at speeds of 266MHz, 2400MHz, and 2133MHz. Please refer to the table below for all kit configurations.

In an email to HEXUS G.SKILL explained that the Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM series features auto-overclocking. On suitably qualified systems the rated overclock speeds will automatically be detected and used. That's a great installation shortcut, saving the time for all installers of having to delve into manual BIOS settings.

G.SKILL's Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMMs run at just 1.2V helping reduce power consumption and reduce energy wasted as heat. In confined form factor systems the modules should contribute to overall cooler, quieter, and more stable computing.

Pricing and availability of the G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM kits is yet to be announced.

That's a lot of memory for a laptop, 64Gb, I think it was back in the mid 90's my home PC had 64MB (maximum it could take) and 2x 400MB HDDs with a intel 100MHz processor and I thought it was the bees knees (from memory I think it cost about A$3000). :-) Happy to see some improvements over the years.
Just had a thought, if we had 8 module quad channel DDR4 on the Z99 motherboards that could take up to 128GB, how come we went back to only 4 modules on the new intel platform? Or is it just something that the companies are holding onto as a upgrade for the next versions? Anyone know?
