The Ripjaws S5 series is G.SKILL's newest RAM for "high-performance" rigs, and goes up to DDR5-6000 in terms of speed. The OEM asserts that their next-gen memory is made of internal circuits (ICs) "hand-screened" for stability and consistency. It has been launched as kits with dual 16GB modules.

G.SKILL has already updated its "gaming" Trident-series RAM to DDR5; now, it has done the same with its "performance"-focused Ripjaws line. These new S5 sticks cram the latest in DRAM into a slimline, minimalist form-factor finished in matte black or white. The OEM asserts that they will thus suit any rig intended for demanding tasks such as editing, modelling or rendering.

DDR5 RAM supports module sizes of up to 128GB in capacity; however, G.SKILL has elected to start the Ripjaws S5 series at 16GB, offered in kits of 32GB in size each. Nevertheless, it covers a whole gamut of the cutting-edge memory's new potential in terms of speed, coming in DDR5-4800, -5200, -5600 and -6000 SKUs.

Oddly, all of those options are presented as having the exact same CL-timing profiles. Perhaps this is one of many interesting details we can clarify on the release of our upcoming Ripjaws S5-series 2x16GB review, currently on our test bench in DDR5-5200 form (and in the black colorway).

G.SKILL has announced that these Ripjaws S5 kits will start to become available globally through its authorized distributors from November 2021.
