G.SKILL is one of the move respected names in the computer industry. Established in 1989 by enthusiasts, they have become one the leading memory module manufacturers. They also have one the most extensive range of computer memory products available. They have 13 different series of desktop memory alone.
Over the last few months we have had the privilege reviewing a few excellent high performance DDR4 memory kits from the likes of Corsair, Crucial, and G.Skill. However, we are obviously always on the lookout for something better and this had led us to the G.Skill Ripjaws 4 DDR4-3200 16GB memory kit.
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.
