SanMax starts sales of DDR4 memory

It was long coming our way and here finally it is – the Japanese company SanMax has started sales of what appears to be the first DDR4 memory on the retail market.

The new memory can be currently found on the Japanese market only but it will likely soon debut on other markets too. DDR4 will only be supported by the upcoming Haswell-E processors and the Intel X99 chipset, expected on September 14, 2014. The memory is available in kits as of now – the SMD4-U16G27H-21P-D kit includes two 8 GB DDR4-2133 memory modules, while the SMD4-U32G28H-21P-Q kit includes four 8 GB DDR4-2133 memory modules.

As expected the SanMax DDR4 modules come with 288 contact pins and run at 1.2V at 15-15-15-50 latencies. The modules use SK Hynix memory chips and cost as follows – the 16 GB memory kit sells for USD 355, while the 32 GB kit retails for USD 690.
