When G.Skill isn’t breaking world records for the speed of its memory, it’s taking the crown for latency instead. It’s latest lot of Trident Z RGB memory ranges from a speedy 4000MHz up, sporting ultra-low latency at a tiny CL17 timing.
To achieve such a low latency of CL17, the company states that the “new memory kits are made with rigorously hand-binned, high-performance Samsung B-die DDR4 IC components.” This allows each kit to utilise higher frequencies to their full potential, with improved memory performance.
Of course, these are extreme performance kits, with the first set being a 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4-4000MHz with CL17-17-17-37 timings at 1.35V. Timings are the same for the 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4-4133MHz kit, while pushing the voltage up to 1.4V.
The flagship kit for this new low-latency, high-speed record is G.Skill’s 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4-4266MHz, which sits at a higher timing of 17-18-18-38 at 1.45V.
Each of these configurations has been tested with an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO motherboard and an Intel Core i7-8700K processor, as seen in the screenshots above.
The new G.Skill CL17 Trident Z RGB kits of RAM will be available starting in January 2018.
KitGuru Says: G.Skill has impressed me these past couple of months, as it’s constantly competed for records across a variety of memory kits. Moreover, this time is hasn’t dropped its signature RGB design, which is a bonus for anyone who wants to show off their system. I know I would. How do you like G.Skill’s new Trident Zs?
