G.Skill RipJaws-Z 16GB review

Intel X79-compatible memory kit boasting a whopping 16GB of RAM

As good as the G.Skill RipJawsZ modules genuinely are the concerns about the need for such huge amounts of RAM, or the quad-channel design, are more telling.

You really aren't getting a huge boost in performance, if any, with such a vast amount of quad-channel DDR3 memory.

Technology and cars. Increasingly the twain shall meet. Which is handy, because Jeremy (Twitter) is addicted to both. Long-time tech journalist, former editor of iCar magazine and incumbent car guru for T3 magazine, Jeremy reckons in-car technology is about to go thermonuclear. No, not exploding cars. That would be silly. And dangerous. But rather an explosive period of unprecedented innovation. Enjoy the ride.
