Computex: G.Skill demos new ultra-fast RAM for X299

At Computex today G.Skill began showing off its new super fast DDR4 modules, which are primarily geared towards use on Intel’s new X299 platform. G.Skill’s new memory kits range from a 3466MHz 32GB DDR4 SODIMM kit all the way up to a Trident Z 4800MHz kit.

First up is the new Trident Z DDR4-4800MHz CL19 16GB (2x8GB) Kit. The goal with this kit was to achieve the fastest frequency possible and at Computex, G.Skill demoed it running perfectly fine while maintaining a low CAS latency timing of CL19-19-19-39. At the show, G.Skill has this kit running with an Intel Core X-series processor on an ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard.

Stepping down from that is the Trident Z RGB DDR4 4200MHz, which is a 64GB kit. This is a quad-channel kit for the X299 chipset platform, running at 4200MHz with a timing of CL19-21-21-41. Similarly to the last demo, this was running on an Intel Core-X CPU though the motherboard this time was an ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe.

Next up is the 4400MHz version of the Trident Z RGB kit, though rather than offering 64GB of memory in quad channel, this kit offers 16GB in dual channel (2x8GB). This kit is overclocked to DDR4-4400MHz CL19-19-19-39 on the Gigabyte X299 SOC Champion motherboard.

The final desktop kit we got to see was the Trident Z RGB DDR4-4000MHz 32GB kit, utilising two 16GB modules. This kit runs at a timing of CL17-18-18-38 and was shown running on an ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard.

The final kit we saw overall was a SO-DIMM kit for laptops. G.Skill has put together a high speed 3466MHz 32GB kit for portable systems, with a CL16-18-18-43 timing. This kit was shown running inside an EVGA SC17 gaming laptop, though it could run inside many others.

KitGuru Says: It looks like those upgrading to X299 this year will have plenty of new high-speed memory kits to choose from. Are any of you currently planning your next upgrade?
