GeiL Unveils 64 GB DDR4-3200 SO-DIMM Kit, 2 x 32 GBby Gavin Bonshor on May 5, 2020 4:00 PM EST
Memory manufacturer Golden Emporer International Limited, or known generally as GeiL, has announced its new memory line with support for Intel 10th Gen and AMD Ryzen 4000 series processors. Casually calling its new 64 GB product simply 'SO-DIMM', it will be available in a 2 x 32 GB DDR4-3200 kit.
With mobile processor architecture improving at a steady rate, memory capacity limits have increased designed to give gamers and content creators more robust memory capabilities. Designed to support Intel's 10th generation and AMD's Ryzen 4000 mobile series, the GeiL SO-DIMM offers users to upgrade its notebooks with 64 GB of memory. Not only DDR4-3200, but the GeiL SO-DIMM series also includes DDR4-2666 and DDR4-2933 variants.
With its black and simplistic design, the DDR4-3200 64 GB (2 x 32) kit has a CAS latencies of 22-22-22-52. GeiL states every kit is tested with its DYNA 4 SLT technology but doesn't state publically what that entails. The DDR4-2666 kit has latencies of 19-19-19-43, while the DDR4-2933 has latencies of 21-21-21-48 (these sub-timings are similar to other vendors). Every 2 x 32 GB kit has an operating voltage of 1.2 V and is also backed by GeiL's limited lifetime warranty.
While the product naming scheming is somewhat unimaginative, the SO-DIMM range of dual-channel 64 GB kits for mobile platforms is GeiL's first 64 GB SO-DIMM kit. Geil hasn't announced when the SO-DIMM 64 kits will be available, nor has it revealed pricing at this time.

Sivar - Tuesday, May 5, 2020 - linkIt will probably be a DDR5 module.
Unashamed_unoriginal_username_x86 - Tuesday, May 5, 2020 - link...?
nandnandnand - Tuesday, May 5, 2020 - linkThey must be referring to 64 GB in a single SO-DIMM (also DIMM), which is expected to be released for consumers as DDR5, not DDR4. DDR4 tops out at 32 GB for non-server memory, and there's no point making 64 GB DDR4 DIMMs with DDR5 right around the corner.
Too bad many laptops are using soldered memory now with no user-upgradeable memory slots.
deil - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkIt pains me a lot as getting ram bump was the easiest way to get second live into cheap laptop.
nandnandnand - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkYeah. I would even throw 32 GB (~$100) into a crummy $100 4 GB laptop if it was possible.
Then you have $1,000 systems that are non-upgradeable, because Ultrabookz.
deil - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linksame here. I have 32GB laptop now, and I am really running out sometimes, not often but I keep seeing it just when I seriously start to multitask.
vFunct - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkI just want them with ECC so I don't have to worry about crashes all the time. Current laptop crashes ALL the time.
nandnandnand - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkI'd like to see ECC RAM become standard for consumers, but are bit errors really causing your laptop to crash frequently?
