G.SKILL Announces New DDR4 Specifications for AMD Ryzen Threadripper

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, announces all-new DDR4 specifications and expanding the Flare X series, designed for AMD processors and platforms. Compatible with the new Ryzen Threadripper processors and AMD X399 chipset motherboards, these new DDR4 specifications are designed to achieve high frequency at DDR4-3600 MHz 32GB (8GBx4), as well as a massive total capacity at DDR4-2933 MHz 128GB (16GBx8). Included in the mix of new quad-channel DDR4 memory kits are DDR4-3200 MHz CL14 32GB (8GBx4) and DDR4-3466 MHz CL16 32GB (8GBx4).

With improved overclocking performance on the latest AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors on the X399 chipset, G.SKILL is announcing the DDR4-3600 MHz CL16-18-18-38 with 32GB (8GBx4) total capacity running in quad-channel mode, under the Flare X series. Tested for maximum stability, this kit's frequency speed marks the fastest memory kit ever released thus far for an AMD platform.
Massive Kit Capacity, No Compromises: DDR4-2933MHz 128GB (16GBx8)
One of the advantages introduced by the AMD X399 platform is the increase to 8 memory slots on AMD platforms, allowing the support for massive 128GB capacity kits running in quad-channel mode. Tested using the highest standards for memory stability on AMD Ryzen Threadripper platforms, G.SKILL announces the Flare X series DDR4-2933MHz CL14-14-14-34 128GB (16GBx8) memory kit running at 1.35V, perfect for systems requiring high-capacity, high-bandwidth memory kits.

These are all guaranteed to be Samsung B-die.

Can the memory controller even overclock to handle 3600Mhz? I thought 3200 was the highest anyone has been able to get it?

No some have gotten above 3400 without issues

It's not the IMC

The boards are what's limiting the clocks

I myself may need to pick these up

am4 Boards where basically rushed to Launch, most of the first generation boards came out with pretty big issues and crappy BIOS, the second and third wave of AM4 Mobos are better.

TR4 Boards seems a lot better than AM4 At launch, its a matter of time to people to hit DDR4-4000mhz on TR4.

Yup, 3600mhz does work if the planets align and you have a good cpu, ram and mobo.
I think that's roughly the limit on the IMC, I've had two 1800X's and the first chip I had could hit 3700mhz, second one could only do 3650mhz, both on the crosshair. I guess lower end boards might limit clocks though. iirc cdawall managed 3800mhz at one point.

edit: Just realized I'm kinda hijacking this thread lol.. it'll be interesting to see how TR and Epyc do in terms of memory frequency.

I can only guess at the prices of these kits, and it makes me cringe. :(
