Computex is under way right now and tech companies from all over the world are showing off what they have in the works for the future. This year, G.Skill has been showing off just how far you can push its DDR4 RAM modules on X99 and Z170, with extremely high speeds and capacities.
On the Z170 systems on show at Computex, the focus is placed on getting the highest frequency and tightest timings possible. Making use of an ASRock Z170M OC Formula motherboard, G.Skill has a 16GB (2x8GB) Trident Z kit running at 4500MHz CL16-16-16-36. Meanwhile on a Gigabyte GA-7170X-Ultra Gaming motherboard, there is a 64GB (4x16GB) Trident Z kit running at 3200MHz with a low timing of CL13-13-13-33 at 1.35V.
Over on the X99 side of things, there is a Trident Z 64GB kit on an ASUS X99-Deluxe II motherboard, running at 3600MHz CL15-15-15-35. The 128GB DDR4 kit was able to hit 3466MHz on the MSI X99A Gaming Carbon running at CL16-16-16-36.
G.Skill has also unveiled a range of SO-DIMM RAM modules for portable gaming systems and laptops running at similarly high frequencies. For instance, the MSI GT72 6QD laptop has 64GB of G.Skill RAM running at 2800MHz CL18-18-18-43 at a meagre 1.2V.
