There are many companies that make memory modules. Maybe not as many as before, but there are a good number of brands to choose from. While every company has their own designs and colors, the way some of the smaller companies have chosen to compete is with highly curated memory modules that perform at ridiculously high clock speeds out of the box. G.SKILL is one such company that has solidified itself in the market in this fashion and their latest shipping memory kits are indeed fast!
The G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 DDR4 modules will be shipping in speeds up to 3666MHz out of the box, running a mere 1.35 volts. So potentially, if you want to overclock, you could get more out of the kit. With the Quad Channel memory capability of the Intel X99 platform combined with these insane clock speeds, the platform will definitely remove bottlenecks on applications that are memory bandwidth hungry. But usually, folks seem to buy these for bragging rights in benchmarks.
The G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 DDR4 3666MHz kits will initially ship in a 16GB (4GBx4) configuration. It will support the latest XMP 2.0 profiles so that you can drop it in and get the speed that you paid for. And speaking of paying, expect to see a slight price premium over lower clocked versions.
