G.SKILL Announces Ripjaws DDR4-3000MHz SO-DIMMs

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, announces new high-frequency, high-capacity additions to the Ripjaws SO-DIMM family with DDR4-3000MHz CL16 kits at 1.2V, available in 8GB to 32GB (16GBx2) configurations. Foreseeing the growing demand of high-end gaming laptops and small form-factor PCs, G.SKILL continues the development of higher speed DDR4 SO-DIMM memory.

Today, G.SKILL is excited to raise the maximum support of DDR4 SO-DIMM frequency to 3000MHz CL16. Most importantly, this frequency speed is achieved at a low voltage of 1.2V, while DDR4-3000MHz kits typically require a higher 1.35V. A lower operating voltage is the ideal power-efficient solution for laptops and small form-factor PCs with a smaller thermal footprint.
XMP 2.0 Support
These new G.SKILL DDR4-3000MHz SO-DIMM memory kits also support the latest XMP 2.0 standard designed for 6th Gen Intel Core processors. A stress-testing screenshot of the memory kit can be found below:

Product Availability
The Ripjaws DDR4-3000MHz SO-DIMM kits will be available via G.SKILL authorized distribution partners starting in April 2016.

Bah, just when I bought regular 1.35V memory for my wife's PC.

those ripjaws won't run at their rated speeds in many laptops...

I have a set of the 2800Mhz ones and I have to keep them at 2400 or they bsod.

not to mention, the timings are so loose at 2800Mhz that the performance difference is nil.

Just get normal sticks (and alot of it) DDR performance makes no difference anyways.

That's a problem of the notebook in question then.
I guess motherboards are rated for memory speed ranges for a reason. Notebooks are notorious for being incompatible with almost everything and unconfigurable.

I wonder if my Asus G750JX could run this memory at it's rated speed.
But as @Octopuss said probably not, since there isn't much that you can change in a laptop BIOS.

It may work on the newer Asus ROG models though.

This will be interesting for AMD APU's that have SO-DIMM. When they get released...

Some Itx boards already use So-Dimm, so these should be perfect for them.

But are they DDR4 ? I thought AMD was still stuck on DDR3.

I mean, sure you could stick them in Intel boards, but AMD's APU's gain the most from fast RAM.

Amd is still ddr3 across the board.
