While we are all waiting for smaller fabrication nodes for GPUs, there is another revolution that will effect the graphics cards industry. High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM) is a form of stacked DRAM designed to sit on the same package as a processor. Hynix has been working on this technology with AMD and their entire HDM presentation was recently leaked giving us more insight on the technology.
Recently we took a look at our first DDR4 memory kit, which was from Crucial. It was their JEDEC kit so it had no XMP profile and runs at the stock 2133 MHz as well as no fancy heatspreaders. Well the kit we are taking a look at today is much different. It has a nice set of heatspreaders and runs at 2400 MHz with timings of 15-15-15-25 at 1.2V. The kit we are talking about is G.Skill’s F4-2400C15Q-16GRK kit, which is a 16 GB kit. G.Skill will also be offering these kits in three different color options so you can match them to your motherboard, case and other components. Let’s get these modules in our X99 system and see what they can do!
Intel recently launched their Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) processors and accompanying X99 chipset. With that came the introduction of DDR4 memory to the consumer market. DDR4 memory has been used in server implementations, but the X99 chipset is the first consumer platform to support DDR4 memory. DDR4 brings with it faster data rates (2133 MHz standard), higher capacity levels and improved efficiency over DD3. Today we will be taking a look at our first DDR4 memory kit and it comes from Crucial. We are taking a look at their 32 GB (4x8GB) DDR4-2133 Kit (CT4K8G4DFD8213). This is Crucial’s JEDEC kit so it is not fancy at all and does not come with a XMP profile. The kit runs at 2133 MHz with timings of 15-15-15-36 at 1.2V.
G.SKILL International Co., Ltd., the leading extreme performance memory manufacturer and designer, is excited to feature two extremely high end DDR4 memory at 3333MHz 32GB (4GBx8) and 3200MHz 32GB (8GBx4) during Intel Developer Forum 2014 (IDF 2014).
G.SKILL is releasing the world’s fastest DDR4 memory kit at a breath-taking and neck-breaking 3333MHz!!! With a total capacity of 16GB (4GBx4), the system can take full advantage of quad channel mode and crank up the bandwidth speed to new heights. Not to mention the CAS timings are maintained at a nice CL16-16-16-36, and fully validated on the newest ASUS Rampage V Extreme X99 motherboard!
Kingston today announced a new entry into their HyperX memory line with the HyperX Savage memory. yperX Savage replaces HyperX Genesis and offers experienced enthusiasts, gamers and content creators a cutting-edge look. It features a black PCB encompassed by an eye-catching Savage red, asymmetrical heatspreader made of aluminum with a diamond-cut finish. The low profile makes it perfect for oversized CPU coolers.
Just a couple of days ago we revealed G.Skill’s Ripjaws 4 DDR4 memory kits and now G.Skill has made it official. The new DDR4 memory kits in the Ripjaws 4 will feature all new redesigned heatspreaders in three different colors.
G.Skill’s RipJaws 4 gaming-grade memory modules have been revealed. These new memory modules will feature a slightly different heatspreader design, but will have the same color options as their DDR3 predecessors.
Corsair has been a huge front runner for performance memory with their DOMINATOR series and you can Pre-Order your new DDR4 Dominator and Vengenence memory before anyone else gets them. At least in the UK for now. US Competitors will no doubt be following suit very soon.
ADATA Technology today launches the first DDR4 overclocking memory of XPG series – XPG Z1, which supports the latest Intel Haswell-E platform for ultimate performance. With the benefits of DDR4, the XPG Z1 is not only a powerful weapon for gaming, also an important component for overclocking.
