G.SKILL shows off 3466MHz 16GBx2 DDR4 SODIMM kit

Outside of industrial specialists VLP, and even just normal height LP, RAM seems to have disappeared with the advent of DDR4. Things didn’t change at Computex, with ever bigger and flashier heatsinks being the norm, often in order to fit even more RGBs.

As such we didn’t make time to stop by G.SKILL’s booth while at the show, which is unfortunate in hindsight because they were showing off a 32GB kit (16GB x 2) of DDR4 SODIMM at a new high speed of 3466MHz! Timings aren’t spectacular at CL 16-18-18-43, but they are respectable considering it’s SODIMM.

High-end SODIMM isn’t something we would normally be that interested in since its usefulness was limited to gaming laptops and maybe something like the Skull Canyon NUC. With the advent of the ASRock X299E-ITX/ac and its quad-channel DDR4 SODIMM slots however, a high-speed high-capacity kit of DDR4 SODIMM is suddenly extremely relevant to SFF enthusiasts.

No word on price or release date unfortunately, but we’ll update the article once we hear back from G.SKILL.
