G.Skill Ripjaws4 DDR4-2666 MHz Memory Kit Review

Back in September of last year, G.Skill provided a Ripjaws4 DDR4-3000 MHz memory kit to compliment our Haswell-E launch day coverage. This time around, G.Skill sent along a Ripjaws4 DDR4-2666 MHz 16 GB kit for us to have a look at. This particular kit carries a part# F4-2666C15Q-16GRR and is priced substantially less than their DDR4-3000 MHz and above offerings. DDR4 memory is by nature a very expensive proposition, so we’re excited to see if G.Skill can provide a cost efficient DDR4 memory kit that still provides the performance we’ve come to expect from their memory products.
