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.

PeachNCream - Tuesday, May 5, 2020 - linkThis does make me wonder if I can get my Latitude 3160's Pentium n3700 to recognize and properly use a 16GB SODIMM. Intel officially supports up to 8GB of DDR3L 1600 which is enough I guess, but meh.
Spunjji - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkI'm genuinely interested as to what workloads would benefit from 16GB of RAM tied to Braswell CPU cores. What do you do with it?
I think the 8GB limitation is a hard one, unfortunately.
callmebob - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkThe product announcment clearly lacks in the audio department.

Typo in the full company name. It's "Emperor", not "Emporer"; probably important to get it right if you're making the effort to spell it out. Perhaps you will have to pore over the next article more closely. :)
Tomatotech - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkmITX motherboards should use SO-DIMM memory, would free up a fair bit of room, maybe even allow 4 slots of RAM instead of the current 2. I don't understand what's stopping the makers from doing this.
callmebob - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkThe consumer market is just not big enough for this, i am afraid. I agree that SO-DIMMs would be nice for compact builds, but it seems the motherboard manufacturers do not really seem to see this as a selling point in the consumer market. Unlike SO-DIMMS, with standard-size DIMMs one has upgrade paths from/to larger form factors (such as mATX/ATX), which isn't helping the SO-DIMM proponents (remember, vendors want to keep selling you stuff; they don't like you to buy only once and then keep the things for 10 years...)
In the workstation/server space are a select few -- still not many -- mITX boards with SO-DIMM slots, though. ASRock Rack's X299 WSI/IPMI comes to mind...
callmebob - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkTo balance Intel vs. AMD, ASRock Rack has also a Ryzen-based mITX board with 4 SO-DIMM slots, the X570D4I-2T.
