ZADAK reveals 'Double Capacity' DDR4 DRAM with 32GB per Module

ZADAK has unveiled their first 'double capacity' DDR4 memory module, offering the world's first 32GB DRAM module for the consumer market, surpassing the 16GB that is typically found on high-end memory kits. 

PC Watch has reported that this module is likely to release with clock speeds of 3,200MHz, basing this assumption on the module's model number, calling the module "SHIELD DC AURA 2 RGB DDR 4 3200". 

To achieve their insane 32GB per module capacity, ZADAK has created this module with two times as many chips as a standard DDR4 DRAM, with two layers to DDR4 memory chips on each side of the memory module. Each module will have sixteen ships on each side of the memory module, providing end-users with a total of 32 8Gb (1GB) DDR4 DRAM chips to deliver a total of 32GB of memory capacity. 

The main downside of this design change is the fact that ZADAC's 'Double Capacity' DRAM modules ship with larger module sizes than standard DDR4 DRAM, which may cause compatibility issues with some air coolers and AIOs, depending on the user's hardware configuration. It is also unknown whether or not these new 'double capacity' memory modules require specific hardware support on the motherboard/CPU side or new BIOS revisions.

ZADAK's double capacity DRAM modules also support an RGB technology called 'AURA 2 RGB', which is compliant with ASUS' AURA Sync technology. At this time it is unknown when high-capacity 32GB DDR4 memory modules will become available to purchase.
