Although there are several DDR4 kits available for X99 motherboards, most modules are clocked at 2133 MHz and 2400 MHz.
G.Skill is looking to remedy that with the launch of its latest memory modules, which are clocked at 3333 MHz. Dubbed Ripjaws 4, G.Skill is looking to cater to the enthusiast segment with these modules, which will be available in quad-channel variants (4x4GB). In addition to the 3333 MHz modules, G.Skill is also launching slightly lesser clocked 3300 MHz and 3200 MHz kits in 16 GB (4x4GB) configurations.
The modules feature a CL timings of 16-16-16-36, which comes out to a latency of 9.6 nanoseconds. G.Skill was able to validate the latencies on a Rampage V Extreme. Base voltages for the modules are at 1.35V, which leaves a lot of overhead for overclocking. G.Skill is no stranger to overclocking, with the vendor stating last week that it was able to achieve a frequency of 4004 MHz using a liquid nitrogen cooled configuration.
Featuring a sleek black design scheme, G.Skill’s 3300 MHz and 3200 MHZ Ripjaws 4 modules will be available from September 5 on Newegg, with the 3333 MHz 16GB kit available now for $699. Other countries are slated to receive the modules later this year.
