G.Skill launches their first DDR5 RIPJAWS SO-DIMMs - Faster than JEDEC memory for laptops

G.Skill has released their first high-performance DDR5 SO-DIMMs for small form factors PCs and laptops

One of the problems with laptops and small form factor PCs is that they often use SO-DIMM memory, and while these modules are compact and capable, they are often limited to standardised JEDEC speeds, which have looser timings and lower clock speeds than their higher-end (full-sized) DIMM counterparts.

Few manufacturers create performance oriented DRAM SO-DIMMs, as most users simply buy modules with the per-module capacities that they desire for their specific workloads. More often than not, clock speeds and timings are an afterthought, which is a shame for performance-oriented laptop users. 

G.Skill has just launched their first RIPJAWS series DDR5 SO-DIMM modules for laptops and small form factor PCs. These modules will be available with memory speeds of up to DDR5-5200 and per modules capacities of up to 32GB. For a laptop with two SO-DIMM slots, that means that you can create a PC with 64GB of DDR5 memory.

For their larger 32GB SODIMM Modules, G.Skill are offering users speeds of DDR5-4800 and CL timings of 40-39-39-76, and tighter timings are available for their 16GB modules, alongside a DDR5-5200 speed option. 

Those who desire lower than normal memory latencies can use G.Skill's RIPJAWS DDR5-4800 CL34-34-34-76 modules or their DDR5-5200 CL38-38-38-83 modules. Those are much lower timings when compared to today's more commonly available DDR5 CL40 SODIMMs.

G.Skill expects their new DDR5 RIPJAWS series SODIMMs to be available to customers in this month though their partnered retailers.
