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:
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.
