Today, we’re going to have a look at one of G.Skill’s offerings – a 16GB Ripjaws-Z kit - the one that was the fastest memory you could buy in a not so distant past, the one that has DDR3-2400 written on it. Even though as one of industry’s main players in the enthusiast market, G.Skill have already stepped up the game by introducing Trident-X lineup that stretches all the way to DDR3-2800, we reckon that some of the older stuff could still turn lots of heads. Why? Well, let us explain first by looking at some dry data:
||16 GB (4 x 4GB)
Back in the days when this memory
kit was originally introduced, the main playground for high daily memory speeds was Intel’s LGA2011 platform hence these were made as a quad kit. Since then, the game has shifted to Ivy Bridge but we still can’t see any maker being able to squeeze the timings under 9-11-10-28 at 2400 using 4GB modules, which must probably mean that this as good as it gets.
