For any of you that wanted to make your gaming rig slightly better, then the new breeds of 4,600MHz Rams have you covered. G.Skill and Corsair have released a new version of super-fast Ram’s for a rather small community which shows just dedicated these two Ram producers are. Even though a DDR4 Ram could achieve 4,600MHz under extreme conditions with the help of liquid cooling, these Rams are expected to reach 4,600MHz on their own without their being risk of the whole thing frying.
Making Ultra-Fast 4600MHz Ram More Accessible
G.Skill has taken the first step to making super-fast Rams more accessible with their new 16GB DDR4-4600MHz Memory Kit. These new memory kits are inspired from ASRock’s new X299 OC Formula motherboard designed for extreme overclocking. One of the major issues of using 4,600MHz Ram’s was the need for liquid cooling which most people don’t use which made it somewhat hard for them to catch on.
“Previously, the speed of DDR4-4600MHz was only achievable under extreme overclocking with liquid nitrogen cooling,” G.Skill says.
To achieve the same high speed of Ram, G.Skill will not be using hand-selected Samsung B-die IC components to deliver the fastest Rams on the market that can be used without liquid nitrogen cooling. Much like G.Skill, Corsair will also be using only selected Samsung B-die ICs. What this means is that both chips will only be using carefully selected memory chips that can handle high frequencies.
G.Skill or Corsair Which is Better?
On the other hand, G.Skill Memory Kits are slightly cheaper and will be coming out sooner with the slightly low performance of 19-23-23-43 at 1.5V. Corsair might be taking longer to choose the right Samsung B-die ICs or to ensure the stability of the kits. In either case, both offer incredible speeds which most people don’t need.
Should You Buy The New Memory Kits
When it comes down to it you really don’t need to get a new DDR4-4600MHz memory kit. Most gaming systems don’t require ultra-fast ram and neither does it have much use for any high-end gamers. These Rams are designed specifically for overclockers and enthusiasts that have the extra money to burn through rather than professional or casual gamers. To use these Rams you’ll require an ASRock X299 OCF motherboard to run these as well which means if you aren’t running the latest DDR4 supported motherboard you can’t use these ultra-fast memory kits.
Though the increased Ram speed could help increase performance in photo and video editing but the boost in performance hasn’t been tested so it’s recommended that you only buy it if you have the money to spend as each will be costing more than $500.
