G.Skill Intros Quad-channel DDR4-4000 MHz SO-DIMM Kit

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is announcing the world's highest performance DDR4 SO-DIMM memory running at DDR4-4000 MHz CL18-18-18-38 32 GB (4x8 GB) at 1.35V. Combining high frequency and ultra-low timing, this Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM memory kit is capable of achieving the new high level of performance through rigorously hand-binned Samsung B-die DDR4 IC components.

Just two months ago, G.SKILL announced the high performance DDR4-3800MHz CL18-18-18-38 Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM kit. Aiming to push memory limits to yet another level, G.SKILL strives to deliver the best memory performance possible on current systems, and this time for small form factor (SFF) PCs. With this new SO-DIMM memory kit, SFF PCs can now unlock the full potential of memory performance, as shown in the following screenshot, where this new memory kit is tested for over 6 hours on the ASRock X299E-ITX/ac mini-ITX motherboard with the Intel Core i9-7900X processor.
The Ultimate Performance
Featuring super high frequency and ultra-low CAS Latency, the Ripjaws DDR4-4000MHz CL18 32GB (4x8GB) kit is the fastest SO-DIMM memory solution for building an extreme performance mini-PC with the latest Intel Skylake-X CPU. The screen below shows an incredible 101106 MB/s bandwidth for read, using the AIDA64 benchmark.

XMP 2.0 Support & Availability
This new low-latency high performance G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM memory kit is equipped with the latest Intel XMP 2.0 technology for easy one-click memory overclocking, and will be available from authorized G.SKILL distribution partners in 2018 Q1.

I'm still hoping all gaming mini-ITX and mATX, heck even ATX goes the SODIMM route. I post around, not just here, about this. I don't think there's any technical or performance gain with full DIMMs, as the PCB is wasted since no ECC and/or buffered/registered ICs. The slots are larger than x16 PCIe slots. There's so much more we could do with the space.

Corsair's 4x8GB DDR4-4000 SODIMM is already shipping.

There have been a few ITX boards that use it to fit 4 slots. But heat, pcb routing are some negatives for SODIMM form factor. Definitely much easier to get better performance from a UDIMM.

Yeah, with shitty 19-23-23-45 timings....

Is heat really ever a problem in DDR4? I can't say I've heard anyone ever have issues with DIMMs overheating causing instability. Unless they're going completely passive for the entire system with high overclocks on the rest of the hardware for some odd reason.
