G.Skill Launches Sniper Series Memory For High-Performance Rigs

G.Skill Launches Sniper Series Memory For High-Performance Rigs

A high-performance gaming rig is only as strong as its memory, and G.Skill is one of the world leaders when it comes to high performance RAM. If you're in need of a memory boost, or you're building a new machine with performance in mind, the company's new Sniper series is worth a look. It's designed in ultra-low voltage, particularly 1.25V. That can save up to 10% on electricity drain, and it will also enable power-minded gamers to push the boundaries without too many overheating problems. Or, no overheating problems if you don't take things to the extreme.

The kits that are shipping are rather large, in terms of capacity. There's a 4GB x 2 kit and a 4GB x 6 kit, so don't even bother looking if you need "just" 4GB. They'll ship in two colors (pitch-black and metallic army green), and all of the company's products ship with a lifetime warranty. No mention of a price just yet, but we're guessing they aren't super cheap.

G.Skill Launches Its New Sniper Memory Series Aimed Specifically at PC Gamers and Modding Enthusiasts!

The unique gun styled heat spreader complements the modern thought of building the most stylish gaming machine possible, while also maintaining the best in-class stability and reliability.

Taipei-Taiwan - March 14th 2011. G.Skill, the worldwide leading memory designer and manufacturer, has announced the newest concept and development of new Sniper series designed specifically for PC gamers and modding enthusiasts.

The New Sniper series is designed in ultra low voltage, especially 1.25V. This kit can save up to 10% electric power which will simultaneously allow gamers to enjoy smooth gaming without any overheat problems and meet energy efficiency requirements.

Gaming takes a lot of memory consuming processes, therefore, the big capacity memory kit is necessary. G.Skill Sniper series not only fulfill your needs, but also maximize your gaming experience with the range from 4GBx2 to 4GBx6.

This Sniper series comes with two stylish colors, unique pitch-black and metallic army green. Its unparallel PC gaming style can enrich all kinds of computer gears. G.Skill is ready to pull the trigger, are you?

24gb Ram makes farmville run ultra smooth I bet...

I'd like to upgrade my ocz stuff with a nice 4x2 kit like this though, maybe this will be a perfect b-day prezzie for me.

Hmmm... i'm thinking on upgrading the ram when i get me prized possession hehe Marco, any update?

I dunno, i've always been a kingston, corsair kinda guy.... nothing against gskill, but i dunno, never tinkered around with their products before.

anyone else have experience with them/ opinion?

Why yes, while I do have four 2GB sticks of Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600, (contest win) I also have twelve 2GB sticks of GSKill RipJaws DDR3-1600 RAM as well. The RipJaws OC better, Have a better Intel XMP Profile on them, and are a very pretty blood-red color.

They have a lifetime guarantee,....blah, blah, blah,.........

When I buy RAM these days, I usually look for GSKill that I can afford, and just buy it. (not too hard to do considering that they usually sell for less)

Hey Infinity Do you do any video/audio encoding? I am thinking of maxing out my ram too, because when I render things I'm curently using almost all of my 6gb. Just wondering, since you have 24gb, if you are ever able to max that out?

Actually yea I do max it out at times.  But that is a Windows Vista/7 memory management thing.  Vista and 7 will remember things you open and leave them in memory.  The more memory you have, the more stuff preloaded in memory.

Also at times I'll use 12GB as a Ram Drive, sticking my swap file and temp folders on there.  That helps with 32bit programs that normally can't use more than 2GB of ram.

*Edit*

Just checked and the numbers right now are...
Hardware reserve: 228MB
In Use: 6636MB
Modified: 123MB
Standby: 16287MB
Free: 1302MB

I'm using 16410MB for caching programs.

Thanks, still might be overkill for my uses, but thats very interesting about the swap drive.

Hmmmmm.... ncix had a sale with a while bunch of gkill ram.... i think i'll just pick up the most i can for $150. 8gb's? 2 x 4gb's + the 4gb's i'm getting totaling 12 gb's.

For my use, Holy Cow... its like giving a 10 year old his very own space craft... Hey marco, if your reading this, i retract my statement, can you send me the OCZ memory specs? i'll either match them or invest in some ddr3 1600 (best bang for buck it seems). I want ram in the double digits for some reason hehe. Soo Much Processing Powaah (for a simpleton like me)

Match what the PC comes with for the best performance. RAM works better when it's all the same.

Yea after reading these comments yesterday ( i was bored ok ) I opened as many chrome tabs I could. I ended up using about 5 gigs, and there had to be at least 15 chrome windows all maxed out with tabs ( at least 80, I counted )

Who says you dont need 24 gigs for browsing? I know someone needs 5000 tabs open at once.

Jeez Its time to go outside...

 

I do like the RAM above, looks real good, and black pcb is my favorite.

i'm glad to see ram turn into more visual works like the most computer components nowadays. these look great.

what's interesting is a move to the lower voltage and they appear to be lower profile than ripjaws

will have to see how much headroom they have even with the lower volts come to think of it tehy also had the Eco series with pretty tight timings 2 1.35 v

This news seems a bit weird to me.  Comparing it to G.Skill's Ripjaw X series, they run cooler, probably more overclockable due to their low voltage, with a lower profile, and in some places are even cheaper.


Time to find some reviews!

I personally have only used corsair memory in my higher end builds but this G.Skill memory looks to be really nice and comes with a lifetime guarantee so what do we have to lose. Anyone have any experience with their tech support or RMA process?

if i had this RAM i would use it to play Hello Kitty : Island Adventure! Big Smile

I don't think I have maxed out my memory yet. No matter what game I am playing, ex. fallout, sims 3, MW2, GTA or crisis. The bottleneck is usually the graphics card in my case GTX285 2GB FTW. However, I wonder how this G.skill ram compares to Corsair Dominator, right now I have 6GB. Maybe I could use more. I will have to monitor my use when using Photoshop and 3ds. I think I have given myself a new project, lol. Whats the real bottleneck? One note is that a high-end rig is freakin awesome for compiling code. At work I sit there for a few mins waiting for compile, when at home it takes about 2 sec, although this may not be the intended use it works just as well. ...end of rant...

Not sure if anyone is interested but newegg started to sell these kits. I'd like to see a review to see how they stack up against some other kits in that price range.

I'll let you know about them. Newegg just had a sale on them and had what amounted to 25% off on each kit. So, I just bought 32GB of the 1600's in 8 sticks (four 8GB kits) and I should have them Monday or Tuesday. I hope that they're as reliable as the 2GB RipJaws 1600's that I'm using now.

Here's the link to the sale. (2-4GB sticks for 75 bucks)
