G.Ability has introduced its lineup of DDR4 reminiscence kits suitable with AMD’s new Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. The Flare X quad-channel kits are supplied in 32 GB and 128 GB configurations and have 2933 – 3600 MT/s knowledge switch charges. The corporate plans to make the brand new kits out there within the coming weeks.
As reported a number of instances, AMD’s processors based mostly on the Zen microarchitecture have quite a few peculiarities with their reminiscence controllers that forestall high-end reminiscence modules designed for different platforms to run at their labeled knowledge switch charges. AMD is working with makers of motherboards to enhance compatibility of Ryzen platforms with superior DIMMs through BIOS updates, however within the meantime makers of DRAM modules launch particular variations of their merchandise examined to be suitable with Ryzen. For the reason that Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are based mostly on very same dies because the common Ryzen processors and have the identical reminiscence controllers, they’ve the identical DRAM compatibility habits as their brethren with decrease core counts. That mentioned, within the coming days and weeks main suppliers of DIMMs can be asserting kits suitable with the AMD X399 platform.
Being one of the vital common makers of superior reminiscence modules, G.Ability is among the many first to formally introduce its Flare X kits designed for AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. G.Ability’s household of X399-compatible DRAM consists of 4 quad-channel kits: three 32 GB (four´eight GB) kits out there at 3200 MT/s, 3466 MT/s and 3600 MT/s knowledge switch charges in addition to one 128 GB (eight´16 GB) package that may run at 2933 MT/s. As for voltages, all kits and modules require 1.35 V, which is customary for enthusiast-class reminiscence. As ordinary, the upper clocked kits additionally include larger latencies, with timings beginning at CL14 for DDR4-2933/3200 modules and reaching CL16 by DDR4-3466/3600 speeds. All of the modules are based mostly on Samsung’s eight Gb B-die ICs produced utilizing the corporate’s 20 nm course of expertise.

|Velocity||CL Timing||Voltage||Equipment Configuration||Household|
|DDR4-3600||CL16 16-16-38||1.35 V||four&instances;eight GB (32GB)||Flare X|
|DDR4-2933||eight&instances;16 GB (128GB)|
At current, G.Ability’s Flare X household of Threadripper-compatible DDR4 kits doesn’t appear like a broad one. For instance, it lacks any 64 GB choices (it ought to nonetheless be potential to make use of two an identical 32 GB kits), modders are going to overlook RGB lighting, whereas these planning to make use of Threadripper for work are going to overlook ECC assist on the high-capacity package. It’s logical to count on G.Ability to introduce extra Ryzen Threadripper-compatible DRAM choices over time, however for now house owners of AMD’s new HEDT platform must select one thing from the out there choices.
G.Ability historically doesn’t contact upon pricing of its reminiscence modules as a result of DRAM costs all the time fluctuate. As for availability timeframes, count on G.Ability’s Flare X reminiscence modules for AMD’s X399 ‘Threadripper’ platform to reach in two or three weeks, in late August, or early September.
