G.SKILL Demos DDR4 4266MHz and DDR4 4133MHz Memory Kits

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory solid state storage, power supplies, and gaming peripherals, demos two ultra-fast DDR4 memory kits at DDR4 4266MHz 8GB (2x4GB) and DDR4 4133MHz 8GB (2x4GB) extreme speed at the Intel IDF 2015 event this week.

Featuring the latest 6th Generation Intel Core processors and Z170 motherboards, G.SKILL is pushing dual channel DDR4 speed to new heights. The DDR4 4266MHz 8GB (2x4GB) kit is demoed on the Intel Core i7-6700K processor and ASRock Z170 OC Formula overclocking motherboard, while the DDR4 4133MHz kit is demoed on the Intel Core i7-6700K CPU and ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Hero motherboard. Both kits represent the fastest DDR4 memory speed ever seen on live air-cooling demo systems.
"We are truly excited to demo such extremely high memory speed on live demo systems, since DDR4 4000+MHz speeds were traditionally only achievable under extreme overclocking on liquid nitrogen cooling," says Frank Hung, Product Marketing at G.SKILL. "We see amazing performance potential for the new DDR4 memory technology on the newest Intel platform, and very excited to see where it will take us in the near future."

8 GB marketing, is it 2010 already?

I've never used up all 8GB in my gaming rig. This kit would be perfect for people like me who don't multitask on their gaming machine and have another for actual work. But I agree that 16GB is the cool thing to have.

I was a little surprised to see the 2x4GB too. I wonder if single 8GB modules have issues at that frequency?

you havent noticed in all previous ddr generations that the fastest, tightest sticks have less memory? similarly using all 4 slots on a mobo vs 2 slots results in more load & instability on the memory controller at fast tight or overclocked timings

Yes I have. Looks like posing my response as a question opened the door to further discussion as I expected it to. ;)

I see similar things with DDR3 vs DDR4 as I did back when DDR3 was first released. DDR2 initially had better performance than DDR3 at the same frequencies after the DRAM and memory controllers supporting it had developed so long. Maybe with DDR4 we will start to see some real gaming performance gains once it matures. High speed DDR3 is still not very enticing with the itty-bitty performance gains it brings to the table!

well nothing can be done... the leaner something is, the more extreme it can be

The FX-8150 propaganda machine cranking out those 8GHz+ overclocks before the CPU was released were all showing CPU-Z shots with 2GB RAM installed too.

SUPER EXTREME!!

with 6 or 7 cores disabled, too

thanks mr kn00tcn for the link but the result is:
End result, looking at the CPU test scores, is that upgrading to DDR4 doesn’t degrade performance from your high end DRAM kit, and you get the added benefit of future upgrades, faster speeds, lower power consumption due to the lower voltage and higher density modules.

lower power does not give me shi9t at home-higher density i dont see with faster speeds and means i have to first buy the same as i got in ddr3 for a lot of money and later upgrade to faster ram spending even more money.
for me moneymakingmachine-same for cpu`s -no need since sandy bridge for anyone at home to upgrade.

There is Always Moar
yea at what Cas 20 ?
rofl useless
latency > speed
