G.Skill, a leading maker of ultra high-end memory modules, unveiled the industry's fastest 2.66GHz quad-channel memory kit for Intel Corp.'s Core i7-series "Sandy Bridge-E" microprocessors at CeBIT trade-show. The 16GB kit is aimed at no-compromise enthusiasts, who demand both highest performance as well as high capacity of random access memory.

G.Skill's Ripjaws Z 16GB (4GB*4) DDR3 memory kit can operate at 2666MHz with CL10 12-12-31 latencies at unknown voltage settings on Asus ROG Rampage IV Extreme mainboard with Intel Core i7-3960X microprocessor. At present, the kit is the fastest memory solution for Intel LGA2011 announced so far. Such memory sub-system provides extreme 85.3GB/s memory bandwidth.

"To provide overclocking enthusiasts the best memory solution, G.Skill R&D team is always dedicated to push DDR3 performance to boundary. This ultimate DDR3 2666MHz 16GB kit is without a doubt the best quad channel memory solution on the market; it allows extreme overclockers to unleash the maximum power of their X79 systems," a statement by the company reads.

In addition, G.Skill also demonstrates its super fast quad-channel DDR3 2.4GHz 16GB memory kits with CL9 11-11-31 and CL11 11-11-30 timings on Gigabyte G1.Assassin2 and Biostar TPower X79 motherboards.

The company did not say when the ultra high-end 16GB kits will be available and at what price. The kits will clearly be expensive. For example, Corsair Dominator GT 16GB quad-channel 2133MHz DDR3 kit costs starting from around $320.
