G.Skill Goes Overkill – Introduces 64GB DDR4 TridentZ RAM Kit
Someone once told me that RAM is like sugar: the more the better.
I didn’t really like that person, and he had no idea what he was talking about given he said it at a time when 64-bit operating systems didn’t exist, but his statement turned out to be right.
Most PCs and even gaming gears have an average of 8 GB RAM nowadays, and that’s sufficient enough. G.Skill however doesn’t think so. They’ve taken that same ‘RAM is like sugar’ statement to heart, and as a result have released a massive DDR4 kit.
Offering a whopping 64GB of memory with an impressive 3,200MHz clock speed, this monstrous setup is comprised of four 16GB sticks built using Samsung’s high-performance ICs. Despite the massive bandwidth, these feature timings of CL 14-14-14-35.
G.Skill will utilize its existing TridentZ brand name for this 64GB kit, which will be sold alongside the products with the same line, as well as the familiar Ripjaws V family.
For those who aren’t going for an overkill, G.Skill is also making a similar setup available in 16GB and 32GB kits, featuring the same high bandwidth, low latency specifications.
All these kits will support XMP 2.0 standards, making them compatible with new-generation processors such as Intel’s Skylake and the associated Z170 chipset.
The chips are expected to be available before Christmas. So far, there’s not news as far as pricing is concerned.
