G.Skill has a world exclusive with the firm's new Ripjaws DDR4 128GB (16GB x 8) memory kit with a frequency of 2800MHz. The kit features Samsung memory chips, it runs at 1.35V and has CL16-16-16-36 timings. Pricing is unknown but it will surely cost a ton.
G.SKILL International Enterprises Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid state storage, is thrilled to announce the world’s first DDR4 128GB(16GBx8) 2800MHz CL16-16-16 -36 1.35V memory kit based on the newest 16GB capacity DDR4 consumer-class memory modules. These high capacity memory modules are manufactured with new 8Gb ICs produced on the latest 20nm fabrication process, which takes performance to a whole new level, by Samsung Electronics.
While 16GB capacity have been available for server memory in the past, support and design for such large capacity memory modules are now paving its way to consumer memory modules, suitable for workstation level workloads where high capacity memory is vital. These new G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series high capacity memory kits are capable of running in quad-channel at a grand total of 128GB, and have already been validated on the latest ASUS X99 Rampage V Extreme motherboard with Intel Haswell-E processors.
Following the G.SKILL tradition of high end memory kit releases, the new 16GB memory modules are available in kits of up to 8 modules per kit, as well as high performance frequencies from DDR4-2133MHz to DDR4-2800MHz. The dawn of a new high-density memory standard is upon us.
“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.”
