G.SKILL has announced their upcoming low-profile DDR5 memory in the form of the Ripjaws S5. Coming in at only 33mm in height, the 16GBx2 kits will support up to DDR5-6000 speeds at 36-36-36-75 CL Timings. While the price has not been announced, analysts are expecting the DDR5 memory market to cost up to double that of DDR4’s current pricing.
The Ripjaws S5 were shown in both black and white, with low profile heatsinks attached to the memory. At 33mm, they will still be too tall for coolers like the Alpenfohn Black Ridge that require VLP (very low profile) memory modules, but should fit nicely under most other coolers such as the Noctua L12s.
