G.Skill, makers of high performance memory, has recently unleashed their next generation DDR4 memory – the G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 DDR4 memory kits. Most of you have probably seen the Ripjaws 4 before it was officially announced, since overclockers.co.uk already listed it as pre-order days ago. The G.Skill Ripjaws 4 features a new heat spreader design and I have to admit it looks striking and attractive, and it comes in three different colors (Black, Red and Blue). The Ripjaws 4 features high performance frequencies, higher capacities, (ultra) lower voltages, not to mention more expensive as well, and are DDR4 quad-channel ready. The said memory kits are designed for the upcoming Intel X99 platforms that will be powered by the also upcoming Intel Haswell-E processors. Check out the rest of its features and specifications, as well as pricing below.
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 DDR 4 Features
Extreme Performance from 2133MHz to 3200MHz!!
With a standard of 2133MHz, DDR4 is the next generation definition of performance. Also available in 2400MHz, 2666MHz, 2800MHz, 3000MHz, and 3200MHz, the starting lineup is continuing where DDR3 left off. With capacities starting at 16GB (4GBx4), 32GB (8GBx4 / 4GBx8) and 64GB (8GBx8), your new X99 platform will have more memory space to do what you need it to do. That’s not all! Ripjaws 4 also has an ultra-low voltage rating of 1.2V for kits under 2800MHz and 1.35V for 3000/3200MHz!
XMP 2.0 Support on Next Gen Intel® X99 Quad Channel Platforms
Sometimes, simplicity is best. Ripjaws 4 series memory kits above 2400MHz support Intel XMP 2.0 for automatic and trouble-free tuning. Working closely with the major performance motherboard partners, Ripjaws 4 series DDR4 memory are validated for compatibility with most upcoming X99 motherboards with a series of rigorous tests under quad channel memory operations. It’s guaranteed to provide the best-in-class performance, compatibility, and stability with a wide range of X99 motherboards.
All-New Designed Heatspreaders Available in 3 Colors
As the 4th evolution of the Ripjaws series, Ripjaws 4 is outfitted with an all-new designed heatspreader. Available in Red, Blue, and Black! And don’t worry; Ripjaws 4 has a module height of 40mm – the same height as previous Ripjaws family modules – and will be compatible with most CPU heatsinks!
