G.Skill Lays Claim To ‘World’s Fastest’ SO-DIMM Memory Kit For Mini-ITX Motherboards

G.Skill has once again raised the bar for DDR4 SO-DIMM memory with the launch of three new Ripjaws memory kits that range from DDR4-3200 MHz to DDR4-3800 MHz. Advertised as the world’s fastest SO-DIMM memory kit, the company clearly has its sights set on enthusiasts building high-performance small form factor systems.

G.Skill, expanding on the DDR4-3466MHz SO-DIMM memory kits demonstrated earlier this year at Computex, has cranked up both the speed and capacities. These new kits, equipped with high performance Samsung B-die DDR4 ICs, are offered in 32GB (4x8GB) kits running at DDR4-3800 MHz at CL18-18-18-38 timings. The company also offers 32GB (4x8GB) at DDR4-3600 MHz with CL16-16- 16-36 timings and 32GB (4x8GB) or 64GB (4x16GB) kits operating at DDR4-3200 MHz with CL16-16- 16-36 timings. The aforementioned kits all operate at 1.35V.

These new memory kits were validated using an ASRock X299E-ITX/ac motherboard and the Intel Core i9-7900X X-series processor. The validation screenshots accompanying today's announcement shows the Ripjaws DDR4-3800MHz SO-DIMM kit being stress tested continuously for more than nine hours.

    It's like you need to build a Mini-ITX SO-DIMM computer just to avoid RGB LEDs everywhere.

    Funny, Im looking to buy this very same setup. I just wish the ASrock x299 board wasnt so expensive. Looks to be the only mitx board available too :(
