G.Skill Demos CAMM2 DDR5-7800 Ripjaws Memory With 48 GB Capacity & CL36 Timings

G.Skill demoed its next-gen Ripjaws DDR5 memory in the CAMM2 form factor, running at speeds of 7800 MT/s and up to 48 GB capacities.

G.Skill Is Prepping For The Upcoming CAMM2 Memory Standard, Shows Ripjaws DDR5 Module Running at 7800 MT/s Speeds

The CAMM2 memory standard for desktop PCs is here and it was shown in full force by motherboard vendors and memory makers at Computex 2024. G.Skill being one of the highly regarded memory makers in the enthusiast consumer segment showcased its next-gen CAMM 2 memory design and it looks to offer some big improvements over SO-DIMM designs.

For its demonstration, G.Skill used its under-development CAMM2 memory which will come under the Ripjaws series and makes use of SK Hynix memory modules with the specific IC SKU being “H5CG08MGBD-X021 334A” which are the non-binary designs. The module itself had the SKU number “F5-7800M3848H48GX1-CAMM2” and was produced in May 2024.

Moving to the more technical bits, G.Skill’s Ripjaws CAMM2 DDR5 memory module is rated at 7800 MT/s speeds and features timings of CL38-48-48-128 with a voltage rating of 1.45V. It is a single module with a capacity of 48 GB and is XMP 3.0 compliant.

The module didn’t have any heatsink or heat spreader over it as a traditional high-end DDR5 kit would but G.Skill did set up an active fan that was blowing air directly at the module. The motherboard being used was the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 HERO which we recently spotted at the ASUS booth during Computex.

In its demo, G.Skill tuned the memory kit to operate at CL36 timings of 36-48-38-128-176-2T. They were running the Intel Core i9-14900K with its 8 P-Cores activated and the 16 E-Core disabled to achieve maximum stability for this live demo.

Based on what we can tell from our talk with various vendors, CAMM2 is still in the early stages of development but the modules have a big potential as they offer much better speeds, and tighter timings and are tuned for higher performance by being closer to the CPU than the traditional SO-DIMM memory that most PC users and gamer have become accustomed to. It will take time for the CAMM standard to go mainstream but the work is being done by manufacturers such as G.Skill and we will be sharing the updates on the progress of this new standard.
