DDR4 is the fourth generation of RAM (Random Access Memory) technology for computers. It replaces DDR3 and offers increased speeds and larger capacities.
Specifically, DDR4 offers operating speeds ranging from 2133 MT/s up to 4800 MT/s and CAS Latency (CL) from CL 9 up to CL 22. Its capacity has been increased up to 32 GB per memory module.
When choosing speed (MT/s) and capacity (GB), higher is generally better, but it’s important to ensure that our motherboard supports the selected speed and capacity. For CAS Latency (CL), lower is better.
The G.Skill Aegis operates at a speed of 2666 MT/s with a CL16 and 8GB of memory per module.
DDR4 technology is compatible with specific motherboards and processors. For example, DDR4 is compatible with Intel Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, and the latest Intel processors, as well as with AMD Ryzen and Threadripper processors.
However, to ensure compatibility with your motherboard, you must make sure that your motherboard supports DDR4 technology from the manufacturer. Compatibility depends on the processor platform and type of motherboard you are using.
(XMP & EXPO) is a technology that allows us to boost the frequency and performance of our computer’s memory without the need for manual adjustments. (XMP/ EXPO) works by storing pre-defined memory settings in the SPD (Serial Presence Detect) of the memory module. These settings can be automatically applied by the system’s BIOS when XMP is enabled.
The Aegis memory supports (XMP 2.0/ EXPO) technology and offers:
- Speed (XMP/EXPO): 2666 MT/s
- CAS Latency (XMP/EXPO): 19-19-19-43
- Voltage (XMP/EXPO): 1.20V
Built with the highest quality of hand-selected ICs and tested with G.SKILL’s rigorous validation process on all major performance motherboard brands, the AEGIS Gaming DDR4 Memory is designed for the best compatibility and stability the widest selection of motherboards
