G.SKILL Announces New High-Performance, Ultra-Capacity DDR4 Memory Kits for HEDT Platforms

G.SKILL, the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is pleased to announce the release of new high-performance and high-capacity quad-channel memory kits for the latest Intel X299 and AMD TRX40 high-end desktop (HEDT) platforms, including the high-capacity DDR4-3600 CL16-19-19-39 256 GB (32 GB x8), DDR4-4000 CL18-22-22-42 256 GB (32 GB x8), and the high-speed, low-latency DDR4-4000 CL15-16-16-36 64 GB (8 GB x8) specifications. By bringing ultra-high 32 GB memory module capacity into the realm of HEDT computing, powerful workstations are now truly able to achieve a complete combination of high core count processor with high-speed, high-capacity memory for heavy workloads or for running more virtual machines than ever.
Full Power of the Intel X299 Platform
Built for the ultimate memory performance, the G.SKILL is releasing the DDR4-4000 CL15-16-16-36 64 GB (8 GB x8) memory specification that combines both extremely high speed and ultra-low latency in a high capacity 64 GB memory kit. As seen validated on the new Intel Core i9-10900X processor on the ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME ENCORE and MSI Creator X299 motherboards in the screenshots below, this supremely fast memory kit is the ideal choice for high-performance workstations:
For ultra-high capacity memory kits, built with the latest high-density 32 GB modules, the DDR4-4000 CL18-22-22-42 256 GB (32 GB x8) is the perfect choice for memory hungry applications, like running multiple virtual machines. In the screenshot below, this behemoth memory kit is seen validated with Intel Core i9-9920X and i9-9820X processors with the MSI Creator X299 and ASUS PRIME X299-DELUXE II motherboards, respectively.
Pushing the Limits of the AMD TRX40 Platform
Built for use with the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors and optimized for squeezing out every last ounce of performance, G.SKILL has integrated low latency specifications of DDR4-3600 CL14-15-15-35 into a 64 GB (8 GB x8) Trident Z Neo memory kit. In the following screenshot, this highly efficient memory kit is validated with the latest AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X processor and the ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme motherboard.
G.SKILL is also launching an ultra-high capacity memory kit based on high-density 32 GB memory modules for the AMD platform, with the DDR4-3600 CL16-19-19-39 256 GB (32 GB x8) specification. This extreme capacity memory kit is also validated with the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X processor and the ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme motherboard in the screenshot below.
Availability & XMP 2.0 Support
These high-performance quad-channel memory specifications will support Intel XMP 2.0 for easy overclocking and will be available via G.SKILL worldwide distribution partners in late Q4 2019. Please see the specifications table below for a more complete list of the upcoming quad-channel memory kits.

32GB x8... I just upgraded to 16GB x2 and it still seems a little wasteful.

If your dream is to build unbalanced systems, then yes :P

what unbalanced? For avergae gaming then yeah huge waste. For specific computation workloads it is really welcomed

And the CPU to go with 256GB RAM for compute is the 3600?

You said "3600 with 256GB", to me that sounded like the Ryzen5 3600 + 256GB RAM.

3600 MHz CL15 is where it's at.

Actually, 3733 MHz CL14 is (IF 1:1), but you gotta be lucky with the b-die.

Yeah, but that's not how you wrote 256GB DDR4@3600.
I got me a 3600 CL16 kit, but I still need a mobo to complete my upgrade...

yeah i meant 3600mhz, darn phone typing ya know

TBH i feel unless your CPU IMC is amazing, these 256GB kits probably won’t be able to run at advertised speed. Due to IMC degradation I can no longer run my 128GB kit at 3000mhz with d14. Had to step down to 2933.

Redirecting to @xkm1948 lol

B450 Steel Legend wants to talk with you @bug
1. I'm not getting a last-gen board.
2. I need more M2 and SATA ports.
3. I need at least post diags, if not on board power on and reset buttons.

I got my hopes on B550, but it becomes increasingly more likely I won't see one in time for Christmas :(

Edit: 4. Dual BIOS would be nice, too.

DDR4-4000 CL15-16-16-36 64 GB (8 GB x8)

How much will that be $350,000?

Well, unless G.SKILL is selling these new HEDT RAM modules on a little known internet retailers site in some far remote corner of the web, I believe they have failed to keep their promise.

We have been searching for the release of these new modules literally every day now for about the last month, and we have not seen it available anywhere. G.SKILL appears to be refusing to break radio silence as well on social media such as Twitter, where we have noticed several potential customers of G.SKIll asking them for an update with G.SKILL refusing to reply to anyone.

We get it, things happen and sure delays and unforeseen circumstances befall even the best of us, but to flat out ignore your customer and fan base after keeping them waiting for the last 60 days, is just a little more than simply rude. We haven't noticed them for sale through GSKill's conventional outlets such as Newegg, Amazon, Micro Center... they simply aren't to be found. If anyone else has discovered these modules being sold online, please response and let us know.... we are needing a set for our flagship build.
