G.Skill’s newest SO-DIMM memory kit combines an 8 GB memory module with bandwidth of 2133 MHz.
G.Skill’s new memory kit in the RipJaws series boasts an 8 GB module in a 2×4 GB configuration and bandwidth of 2133 MHz along with timings of 11-11-11-36. The 11-11-11 sub-timing essentially means that the memory module has a latency of just 11.5 nanoseconds, which results in very fast non-sequential reads.
The new memory kit runs on DDR3L, which allows the memory module to run at low voltages. For instance, this kit runs at 1.35V, which not only results in lesser heat but also adds to the longevity of the module.
This memory module will work on all Intel Haswell-based notebooks, and G.Skill has mentioned that the kit will also work on all SO-DIMM DDR3 compatible workstations. Users do not have to resort to tweaking BIOS settings for the system to recognise the maximum bandwidth. In a test of how fast the memory module is, G.Skill has paired the kit with a 2.6 Ghz Intel i5-3427U CPU and was able to undertake a SuperPi 32M calculation in 18.5 minutes.
G.Skill has mentioned that these memory kits will come with a lifetime warranty, and will change them out for free should you run into any difficulties.
