G.Skill ramp up DDR speeds with new Haswell memory kits

G.Skill start upping the clocks on their new memory

| RAM News | Posted: Jun 5, 2013 4:27 pm

Computex Taipei 2013 - Memory is pretty big this year at Computex thanks to the new Haswell platform which is offering us some truly insane speeds out of the box. G.Skill was showing off its new 3000MHz DDR with a 12-14-14-35 setup. What's really impressive, though, is not just the out of the box speed but also the fact that we're dealing with a 16GB kit instead of an 8GB one.

Showing that the memory was more than capable on multiple boards we saw the new kit running on both the GIGABYTE Z87X-OC and ASUS Maximus VI Extreme with both boards of course running the new Haswell-based Core i7 4770K processor.

Not only did G.Skill show the kit running on multiple boards but they had the modules overclocked even higher with both boards seeing 3252MHz DDR with the slightly relaxed timings off 13-15-15-35. In the next two days, though, we should see the overclockers really start to ramp up memory speeds and bring some impressive results. So make sure you keep an eye out.
