At CeBIT 2012 in Germany, the well-known memory maker G.Skill has shown new DDR3 memory that it claims is the fastest DDR3 quad-channel memory on the market.
“To provide overclocking enthusiasts the best memory solution, G.Skill R&D team is always dedicated to push DDR3 performance to boundary,” a statement by the company reads.
This is why G.Skill has pushed the memory speed to 2.66 GHz. As G.Skill puts it: “This ultimate DDR3 2666 MHz 16GB kit is without a doubt the best quad channel memory solution on the market; it allows extreme overclockers to unleash the maximum power of their X79 systems.”
The memory model is Ripjaws Z and works at 10-12-12-31 latencies. The memory was tested on an ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard featuring an Intel Core i7-3960X processor.
Providing 85.3 GB/sec of memory bandwidth the G.Skill Ripjaws Z memory did show that it currently is the fastest memory solution for Intel’s X79 chipset on the market.
