G.SKILL unveils the world’s first 128 GB memory kit

G.SKILL, the famous Taiwanese maker of computer memory, designed for overclockers, has announced the world’s first 128 GB DDR4 memory kit. Apart from the insane memory capacity of 128 GB, the new DDR4 memory kit is also the fastest as of now, running at 2800 MHz at 16-16-16-36 latencies at 1.35V.

G.SKILL’s new DDR4 memory kit consists of eight 16 GB memory modules made possible by Samsung’s latest 8 Gb memory integrated circuits, which themselves are built on the advanced 20 nm tech process. While server computers have seen memory capacities of 128 GB before, this is the first time a regular desktop computer reaches this capacity. The 128 GB kit has already been validated on the ASUS X99 Rampage V Extreme motherboard along with an Intel Haswell-E processor.

“During development of these DDR4 16GB modules, we see amazing future potential for 128 GB (16 GB x 8) memory kits in extreme high capacity operation on upcoming platforms,” says Tequila Huang, Vice President of Research & Development, G.SKILL. “We will be witnessing the beginning of a new set of standards for extreme capacity and performance DDR4 memory kits on both current and future computing platforms. Needless to say, we are very excited for this release.”

The 128 GB memory kit is fully compatible with the newest Intel XMP 2.0 standard, developed for the Intel X99 platform and thus provides hardware enthusiasts with completely trouble-free overclocking experience. In addition to this kit, G.SKILL also offers 128 GB (8 x 16 GB) DDR4 memory kits running at 2133 MHz and 2667 MHz.

The new G.SKILL DDR4 memory comes with lifetime warranty. No word on pricing, though.
