We've already seen a bunch of other memory manufactures unveil their DDR4 RAM, but now we have G.SKILL joining the high-speed ranks. The company has just unveiled its new Ripjaws 4 series of RAM, which has speeds starting at 2133MHz, all the way up to 3200MHz.

There are a bunch of 32GB kits available at 2133, 2400, 266, 2800 and 3000MHz, as well as 64GB kits available at 2133, 2400, 2666 and 2800MHz. If you want the 3200MHz kit, they'll only come in a 16GB kit, with four x 4GB sticks. G.SKILL's new Ripjaws 4 RAM supports most of Intel's upcoming quad-channel capable X99-based motherboards, including Intel's new XMP 2.0 profile standard.

Intel's upcoming Haswell-E platform will reportedly only support up to 2133MHz, with 2400MHz and above kits being helped out by XMP 2.0 to run at their much higher frequencies. G.SKILL has also slapped on an updated heatspreader, which comes in three colors: blue, black and red. Pre-orders are beginning to pop up in the US, with the 2133MHz 16GB kit priced at $259.
