G.Skill’s Ripjaws DDR4 3000MHz SO-DIMM 16GB, 1.2V, CL16 Coming This Month
There aren’t many SO-DIMM (small outline dual in-line memory module) options for users out there although we have a vast variety of DDR4 variants. In order to cater to users who are looking for a smaller alternative, G.Skill has announced a new Ripjaws DDR4 modules in the SO-DIMM computer memory type.
Not only that, G.Skill boasts that the new module can attain a 3000MHz frequency and that too at a lower power consumption and at a CL16 timing.
DDR4 modules that are expected to reach as much as 3000MHz frequency are also expected to ask more voltage, around 1.35V usually. However, the Ripjaws DDR4 3000MHz SO-DIMM asks for 1.2V only.
In case you were to ask, they also come supporting the 6th Gen Intel Core processors XMP 2.0 standard.
G.SKILL is excited to raise the maximum support of DDR4 SO-DIMM frequency to 3000MHz CL16. Most importantly, this frequency speed is achieved at a low voltage of 1.2V, while DDR4-3000MHz kits typically require a higher 1.35V. A lower operating voltage is the ideal power-efficient solution for laptops and small form-factor PCs with a smaller thermal footprint.
Here’s the module being stress-tested:
And here are the specifications that have been shared by G.Skill:
- Frequency: 3000Mhz
- CL Timing: CL 16-18-18-43
- Voltage: 1.2V
- Kit Capacity: 8GB x 1 / 8GB x 2 / 16GB x 1 / 16GB x 2
The best part is that G.Skill have not made the announcement just to tease the crap out of you, the Ripjaws DDR4 3000MHz SO-DIMMs are going to be available for purchase within this month i.e. April 2016!
