G.Skill Launches 24 GB Memory Kit with DDR3-2000 MHz, CAS 8T

G.Skill International Co. Ltd., manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid-state storage with solid quality, has today released its series of 24GB (4 GB x6) triple channel memory kits at an extreme 2000 MHz, CAS 8T, 1.65V.

G.Skill previously demonstrated 24GB of DDR3 at 2,000MHz CL9 during Computex 2010 earlier this month, but has again managed to push the boundaries. This super capacity kit has already attracted a large number of extreme gamers and professional users who expect higher memory capacity can improve their PC performance. G.Skill has successfully provided 24GB (4GBx6) at 2,000MHz CL8 to another high-end boundary, making it the absolute ultimate choice for the extreme users.

G.Skill’s 24GB kits are specifically produced to provide not only cutting edge performance but also top quality and compatibility across a range of popular motherboards designed for gaming, high-end workstations, hardcore power users and anyone who loves living on the cutting-edge.

For the large sum of money money that this kit probably costs, I'd rather buy some SandForce based SSDs or OCZ's PCIe SSD. :cool:

Yea price for that will be insane. And not worth it, except rendering and such things, theres no use for that much memory.

Btw. most games (32bit) uses only 3GB of memory, due 32bit limitations.. theres only few 64bit games.. not mentioning that SW isnt much better in this..

24GB? For most workstations, 8GB should be enough.

32 bit apps can only address 2GB, actually. you require large address aware 32 bit apps in a 64 bit (or modified 32 bit) OS to use the 3GB amount.

Who in the world needs 24GB? Dr. Evil, maybe?

Wait....

This is still quite awesome, even if its expensive. 24Gigs @ 2000MHZ is very impressive.

Just what i was thinking and 8T too. Although no need for my needs but would love to try a ram drive with a game on it though :P.

1. Buy 980X and this ram, X58 UD9, 5870 Eyefinity 6
2. install VMware, set to 6 clients
3. 6 people can use 1 computer at the same time! :toast:

Edit: we will need a port replicator for the USB controllers too.

980X - $1000
UD9 - $700
5870 Eyefinity 6 - $500
1000w PSU - $250
SSD Boot drive - $150
6x 1Tb hard drive - $360
Case to fit it all - $200
RAM - $1000?

~$4200, that's $700 avg for each computer. Might as well just build 6 different computers lol, that way when one machine is down the other 5 can still be used.

*Edit: But running 6 virtual machines off of one rig would be very impressive. And awesome :p

Progress is always good in my opinion. Hell, I have nearly 100x the RAM in my box that I did 10 years ago!

If I get 24 gigs at some point in the next few years, I will definitely try a RAM disk. Or try running without a swap file, though a vague "Windows hates swap turned off" rumour still goes around ...anyone tried it with Windows 7?

6 PCs would cost a lot more in electric over time. Like if all 6 comps were on what ya talking 600w at least ?.

And depending on usage you might not need all that storage and why would you need a $200 case mine was $150 and i can fit 12HDDs in it.

1000w PSU really ?.

And why 6x1TB drives for $360 when you can get 3x2TB drives for $330, and then slap it in a $40 Shipped case?

I suppose you could do 3x 2tb hard drive, but with 6x 1tb everyone can have their own hard drive instead of partitions.

1000w psu for the 5870 that has to support 6 monitors simultaneously, and for all the hard drives, which can take up to 60w each on startup.

Also, don't know of any $40 cases that can fit the UD9, and honestly would you want to cram all that hardware into a $40 case anyways?

well, dont forget, you are using 1/6th the power bill too, in maybe a years time its cheaper, you must consider these costs as well, also, if you have 6 computers you have 6x the parts to fail. you are right about redundancy however.

technically 32bit can address 2^32 = 4,294,967,296 bytes of memory, or 4 gb of ram

In a virutal envirnment it doesn't matter if it is a physical drive or a partition, the difference will be invisable to the user of the virutal machine.

And an HD5870+6 HDDs doesn't require a 1000w PSU, power consumption on a rig like that would likely not even break 600w, especially with staggared startup on the drives.

Your right about the UD9 not fitting in the case I was thinking of, I forgot the UD9 was XL ATX... So drop the UD9, it isn't needed anyway for this setup, and go with $165 AsRock X58 Extreme instead, that will fit in the $40 case, and isn't uselessly expensive, making the overall price even lower.;) And yes, I would put all that hardware, including a $1000 processor, in a $40 case. The $40 case would be functional and that is all I care about, there is no point wasting money on a case.

So what does that bring the total to now?

980X - $1000
X58 Extreme - $165
5870 Eyefinity 6 - $500
650w PSU - $90
SSD Boot drive - $150
3x 2Tb hard drive - $330
Case to fit it all - $40
RAM - $1000?

So cost per person is more like $545...

Sure, I'd still get a PSU larger than 650w though, since this rig'll probably be up 24/7, and you don't want your PSU to be run near it's full capacity all the time.

That and probably a better case with better cooling for all that gear, probably closer to $100.

But taking away the UD9 just made this whole idea a little less cool.

i want .. this much ram at that speed and timings .. i want
i hope G.Skill will continue to price it as decently as their 12gb kits

650w is overkill on the PSU a 980x and 5850 can run well and overclocked on any name brand 500w PSU

indeed, it all depends on who's using it. In fact i my self could get away with just using my 250GB HDDS.

All i was saying it could be done a lot cheaper.

650w was overkill as it was...

An HD5870 is only going to consume at most 145w, the 980x will consume 130w, the 2TB drives consume less than 20w max. Full load your looking at maybe 450w max.

And there really isn't a point to a $100 case, the $40 case cools similar rigs without issue.
