More parts in preparation for Haswell-E

One thing you won't have to worry about when Intel rolls out its Haswell-E processors is finding supplementary components to accommodate the new parts. That includes DDR4 memory. G.Skill is the latest to jump on the DDR4 bandwagon , and it brought along its familiar Ripjaws branding. The new Ripjaws 4 Series of DDR4 memory kits represent the fourth generation of Ripjaws, and with it comes a redesigned heatspreader.

The aggressive looking heatspreaders come in red, blue, and black. Though the heatspreaders on these kits are reflective of a brand new design, G.Skill says each module still measures 40mm high, the same as previous generation Ripjaws RAM.

G.Skill is releasing a whole bunch of Ripjaws 4 Series kits ranging in frequency from 2133MHz to 3200MHz. They include:

  • 2133MHz; 15-15-15-15; 1.2V; 16GB (4GBx4), 32GB (8GBx4 / 4GBx8), 64GB (8GBx8)
  • 2400MHz; 15-15-15-15; 1.2V; 16GB (4GBx4), 32GB (8GBx4 / 4GBx8), 64GB (8GBx8)
  • 2666MHz; 15-15-15-35; 1.2V; 16GB (4GBx4), 32GB (8GBx4 / 4GBx8), 64GB (8GBx8)
  • 2800MHz; 16-16-16-36; 1.2V; 16GB (4GBx4), 32GB (8GBx4 / 4GBx8), 64GB (8GBx8)
  • 3000MHz; 15-15-15-35; 1.35V; 16GB (4GBx4), 32GB (8GBx4 / 4GBx8)
  • 3000MHz; 16-16-16-36; 1.35V; 32GB (8GBx4)
  • 3200MHz; 16-16-16-36; 1.35V; 16GB (4GBx4)

Memory kits above 2400MHz support Intel XMP 2.0 for easy tuning, and all Ripjaws 4 kits have been validated for compatibility with "most X99 motherboards," G.Skill says .

The Ripjaws 4 kits in capacities up to 32GB are available now ranging in price (street) from around $260 to $530.
