G.Skill Releases Ripjaws 48 GB DDR3-1900 MHz Memory Kit for Workstations

G.Skill International Co. Ltd., manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid-state storage with solid quality, has today released the world’s only hand-picked, hand-tested, ultra-high capacity DDR3 memory kit for workstations: 48GB (4GBx12) of 1,900MHz CL8 1.65V with G.Skill's popular Ripjaws series heatsink.

Designed exclusively for EVGA’s best in class Super Record 2 (SR-2) motherboard, which features dual Intel Xeon LGA1366 CPU sockets and 12 DDR3 memory slots, G.Skill has been able to match its masterpiece of 48GB DDR3 precisely to this board, making it performance for performance-hungry workstation users. Furthermore, based on G.Skill lab’s internal test results, advanced users capable of understanding sophisticated BIOS adjustments will be able to reach 2,000MHz CL8 with the G.Skill Ripjaws 48GB DDR3 kit.

Combed with the Intel Xeons 4-6 cores CPUs and EVGA’s support for Nvidia's 4 way SLI technology, G.Skill’s DDR3 48GB (4GBx12) 1,900MHz CL8 Ripjaws is the best memory solution for building the ultimate super-computer for applications such as 3D rendering, data modeling, scientific research and other professional applications.

48 GB 1,900MHz CL8 hits the upper limits of DDR3 technology for Intel's Xeon CPUs, and as such, all G.Skill 48GB DDR3 kits are 100% hand-tested by G.Skill's most senior R&D team to ensure the best stability, reliability, compatibility and performance. The 48GB Ripjaws will be available at G.Skill’s retail partners worldwide in August, or contact G.Skill directly.

Because all 1366 boards have a 24GB per processor limit, so 48GB max on a 2 processor board like the SR-2, AFAIK.
I think that's for Core i7. Xeon 2p can do 48 GB / socket. To answer his question, that 8 GB module has crap latencies and speeds (DDR3 1066 MHz, CL9). It's more for servers than workstations.

2k for dual hexa cores + 2.4k for quad sli (can gtx480 do quad??), 3k for ram + 0.6k for 1500KW psu + 0.5k for the mobo and 1k more to get a decent air conditioner unit for your room...

You get the picture...

It's 24GB unregistered for both the i7 and Xeon, 48GB for a 2P total.

When using unregistered with a Xeon, could go all the way up to 288GB/socket over 9 DIMMs.


As for the news, very nice. Makes my 2GB x 4 G.Skill DDR2 seem cramped. They're also very good with returns, did it once and had new RAM in under 7 business days.

2x Xeon X5680: ~$3000
SR-2: $600
2x Coolers: $100
10 sticks of RAM @ $240/stick: $2400
Antec 1200w PSU: $250
Intel SSD x3: $330 to $1260 (can't tell capacity)
OCZ SSD x3: $200 to $1050 (dunno which drives)

~$6350 give or take a bill not including the SSDs.

well....

2 5680s
sr2
12x8gb ecc 1333mhz sticks
antec tpq1200
4 intel g2 80gb ssds
4 ocz vertex 2 100gb ssds
2 TT frio's
ati 5870

thats just whats in the pic.

when you take in account there is another machine thats identical and they are both in a case, with 2 wd 2tb RE4's in each, highpoint raid cards, intel gigabit lan cards, blueray burners, etc.

about $20k IF purchased from newegg.

Somehow I knew Fit's super rig would end up posted here when I saw this post, but I didn't think it would be Fit himself posting it.

If they are close to around $2000, I think 6 of us should get together and buy a set. Then split the sticks up in sets of 8 GB. So that would be 8 GB across 2 sticks at 2000 Mhz @ CL8 for about $334. I think that is a nice price.

You should swap the CPU coolers for the twin towers there. The color schemes would match then. Sorry, but is just my OCD talking.

I guess to make sure that BT doesn't give us all a warning for this, please direct any further questions, comments, or suggestions about FitSeries 2010 OMG that is just plain ridiculous rig to its dedicated thread here.

I also like the color scheme for these RAM being mostly black and shiny. That will match.....everything I own related to my computer. Hell even my replacement parts for my computer are usually black and shiny.

I may buy an 8 GB set of this stuff and sell my current blue G.Skills RAM here.
