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?
