News  G.Skill's New DDR4 Kits With 32GB Modules Have Very Low Latency

Why do these qualify as "very low timings"? Is this an add?

The 3,200 MHz CL14-18-18-38 is not very low. You can get old and cheaper kits like Flarex 14-14-14-34 with better timings. Color me not impressed.

The difference is that these new kits use 32GB DIMMs. There are barely any 3200 MHz kits with 32GB DIMMs, and the few that exist are CL16+.

Most 32gb Sticks are quad rank, so max out about 2600mhz and normally just run a JDEC spec with terrible timings. These are dual rank, and the 14:14:14:34 you speak of is basically the 8gb B-die DIMM from Samsung, it only comes in 8 gb form, so this stick has 4 times the storage. Colour me impressed.

"The 32GB modules will run at 3,200 MHz DDR4 speeds with CL14 timings. More pacifically, the CL timings are CL14-18-18-38"
So the Timings are peaceful are they?? I think you mean specifically.

But with only the first number being 14, and the other two 16, that doesn't make them 'very low latency' modules. These are basically CL16, but they've tweaked something to wrestle a 14 for the first digit - marketing trickery IMO. Click bait - well I fell for it!
