Patriot Launches New Extension of Viper DRAM Series

Patriot, a leading manufacturer of computer memory, USB/flash memory, SSDs, and mobile accessories, today extended their Viper series of memory with the new Viper 4 built for the latest Intel X99 DDR4 platform and Haswell-E processor.

The Viper 4 series is Patriot's latest addition to their Viper line of extreme performance memory built for the most demanding environments. Designed with enthusiast system builders, content creators, overclockers and hardcore gamers in mind, the Viper 4 will be offered in quad channel kits of 16 GB and 32 GB running at speeds ranging from 2400 MHz to 3000 MHz starting at 1.2 - 1.35 volts.
"We are really excited about this new addition to our Viper Line," said Les Henry, Patriot's VP of Engineering. "The new Viper 4 line benchmarks are crushing the older DDR3 scores from just about every hardware benchmark: memory bandwidth, SSD and USB just to name a few."

To ensure rock solid performance, the Patriot Viper 4 is built with a new custom heat shield to ensure your system runs cool and stable. Compatible with XMP 2.0, the Viper 4 gives users the capability to easily overclock their system by using the predetermined memory profile while still having the option to manually edit the SPD in the PC bios. Backed by a lifetime warranty and Patriot's superior customer service, the Viper 4 is hand tested for quality assurance and validated for system compatibility.

Availability
The Patriot Viper 4 series will be available in the first quarter of 2015 at select in store and online retailers such as Fry's Electronics, Newegg and Amazon for a starting MSRP of $250.00-$700.00 respectively.

Wow! That price! Guess I will be waiting quite awhile to adopt anything newer than what I have that will require DDR4. It's going to be like DDR3, where it was two years in before it became affordable.

The price of DDR4 is nowhere near as high as when DDR3 was introduced. I've kept the invoices of all my PC hardware purchases. $600(NZD) for 6GB of 1600MHz DDR3 in Feb 2009. $700(NZD) for 16GB of 3000Mhz DDR4 last month. IT'S A BARGAIN!!!!!!

Well, not really... but there's more RAM per $.
