The Ripjaws V series DDR4 memory will be available in kits of various configurations and capacities, comprising of 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB modules with performance ranging from the standard 2133MHz to staggering 3733MHz at ultra-low voltages. The high-density 16GB single modules are manufactured from Samsung IC memory chips, packing both capacity and performance in a single module. And of course, all kits are XMP 2.0 ready for easy BIOS tuning and setup, as well as tested under hours of grueling benchmarks and memory validation testing software on the latest motherboards from major motherboard vendors for maximum compatibility and stability.
