Kit G.Skill Sniper F3-17000CL11D-8GBSR refers to a series G.Skill Sniper, presented in early 2011 as a solution with a stylish design for gamers. It includes kits with capacity from 4 to 32 GB with frequencies from 1333 to 2400 MHz. In this case, the operating voltage for different kits ranging from 1.25 to 1.65 V.
G.Skill brings high expectations with each new product release. Computer enthusiasts and overclockers connect the G.SKill brand to the highest quality memory. Today, we once again have a chance to find out if G.Skill is worth being called the best memory manufacturer. This memory review is based on the latest Ripjaws 4 series designed for the only DDR4 desktop platform – Haswell-E.
Remember when we used to expect per-DIMM capacity to double with every new generation of RAM? Desktop users witnessed the transition from 2GB DDR to 4GB DDR2 and 8GB DDR3. Yet, now that DDR4 is out, we’re still stuck with 8GB modules. Where are the 16GB DDR4 DIMMs?
With the release of Intel's high end X99 platform aka Haswell-E last year DDR4 became available for the big masses. Besides the massive available bandwidth these DDR4 modules can also pack a far higher density per stick. All this goodness is available at your disposal while requiring a mere 1.2-1.35Volts.
As we all know Intel has released their new Haswell-E HEDT processors, which support DDR4 memory. A new platform launch by Intel is always the perfect occasion for memory makers to bring new products to market. Today we're having a look at G.SKILL's new Ripjaws4 DDR4 memory.
The specifications below are provided by G.Skill and provide detailed information on the kit at hand. You’ll notice the timings are set identical to the DDR4-3000 MHz kit we spoke of earlier, but the operating voltage is much lower at a mere 1.2 V. Full support for Intel’s XMP 2.0 standard, a lifetime warranty, and a very respectable memory height round out the highlights here.
