Intel recently launched the Haswell-E HEDT platform with the new X99 chipset. This platform also brought the DDR4 memory to consumers. Haswell-E is the first consumer platform which brings support for the DDR4 memory. Among many other advantages, the DDR4 memory brings much higher speeds as compared to old DDR3. In addition to other traditional memory manufacturers, Galaxy, which is mostly known for their graphics cards, has also prepared DDR4 memory kits. Their new Hall of Fame DDR4 memory comes with speeds of up to 3200 MHz with 1.2v. Prior to this, Galaxy showed their Hall of Fame DDR3 memory on Computex 2014 but they never really made it to open market.
The Galaxy Hall of Fame DDR4 memory kits come with a very stealthy looking grey heatsink design which is reportedly made of thick metal. It also has LED lighting on the top. The HOF DDR4 memory kits will come with speeds of 2133 MHz, 2400 MHz, 2666 MHz, 2800 MHz, 3000 MHz and 3200 MHz with timings of CL16. All of these speeds will be available in quad-channel packs of each stick having 4GB or 8GB memory. All of these kits will come with 1.2v. This is the standard voltage for DDR4 memory but some of the high-end DDR4 kits come with as high as 1.35v.
Galaxy’s Hall of Fame series is known for their high-end and capable graphics cards and we are pretty sure that their memory wouldn’t be any different. Pricing or availability information of the Galaxy HOF DDR4 kits is not announced yet but we’ll keep you guys reported as we get more information.
