G.Skill Launches Ripjaws DDR4-4000 32GB SO-DIMM Kit With Ultra-Low Timings

For the past few months, we've seen Corsair and G.Skill jockey for position when it comes to releasing the "World's Fastest" memory kits. Just last week, Corsair upped the ante with a Vengeance 32GB DDR4-4000 SO-DIMM kit. Today, G.Skill counters with its own Ripjaws kit boasting ultra-low memory timings.

G.Skill's SO-DIMM kit, like the Corsair offering, is aimed at high-performance small-form factor (SFF) systems, which have typically be underserved when it comes to the availability of high-speed memory. In this case, the Ripjaws SO-DIMMs are available in a 32GB kit (4x8GB) operating at 4,000MHz. G.Skill says that the SO-DIMMs are built using hand-binned Samsung B-die DDR4 IC components and have CAS timings of 18-18-18-38, while operating at 1.35 volts.

The Ripjaws DDR4-4000 SO-DIMM kit was stress-tested using an ASRock X299E-ITX/ac mini-ITX motherboard paired up with an Intel Core i9-7900X processors (10 cores, 20 threads). To get the most out of your HEDT system, G.Skill has equipped the SO-DIMMs with Intel XMP 2.0 technology to aid in one-click overclocking.

This latest high watermark for SO-DIMMs comes just two months after G.Skill launched its Ripjaws DDR4-3800 kits rated at CL18-18-18-38. If you're looking to get your hands on G.Skill's latest offering, it will be available during Q1 2018 from authorized retailers.
