Memory manufacturer G.SKILL has announced it reached 4004MHz frequency using its Ripjaws 4 Series DDR4 RAM on an ASUS ROG X99 Rampage V Extreme motherboard powered with the Intel Core i7-5930K CPU. The speed was verified by CPU-Z freeware system and hardware benchmarking software.
G.SKILL officially announced Ripjaws 4 just a week ago, with 32GB RAM kits available running at 2133, 2400, 2800, 3000MHz - 64GB kits include 2133, 2400, 2666 and 2800MHz. A separate 3200MHz kit will be available in 16GB only.
The launch of Intel X99 paired with DDR4 memory has excited PC enthusiasts and hardware manufacturers - as several gaming companies announced new PCs pushing impressive benchmarks. Expect RAM manufacturers to continue pushing DDR4 speeds even higher moving forward, while hardware will remain rather pricey in the foreseeable future.
