G.Skill has announced its fastest Trident Z DDR4-4333MHz 16GB (8GBx2) memory kit yet. Furthermore, G.Skill has been testing a proof-of-concept kit which ran at "an extreme DDR4-4500MHz speed on the Intel Z270 platform". In such a configuration the RAM provides bandwidth of up to 65GBps (dual channel mode).
The latest G.Skill Trident Z memory kit to be announced for the PC enthusiast market consists of DDR4-4333MHz CL19-19-19-39 timing 8GBx2 (16GB) memory modules, at 1.40V. G.Skill claims this speed/capacity represents a PC market first. In the screenshot above you can see the kit being validated on an Asus ROG Maximus IX Apex motherboard with an Intel Core i5-7600K processor installed.
In addition to the above validation news, G.Skill has informed us that it is testing even faster DDR4-4400MHz 16GB (8GBx2) memory kits. The screenshot directly above shows this DDR4-4400MHz being stress tested. G.Skill says that the DDR4-4400MHz module kits are still in development and will take 'some time' to be ready for market.
G.Skill is always looking to push memory speeds to their max so is working on "Proof-of-Concept DDR4-4500MHz Extreme Speed," memory module kits. Again in 16GB (8GBx2) configuration, G.Skill managed to run its Trident Z modules at DDR4-4500MHz CL19-19-19-39 timing. In its tests on a Asus ROG Maximus IX Apex motherboard it achieved the following; 55GBps read speed, 65GBps write speed, and 52GBps copy speed in dual channel mode.
G.Skill has yet to email us with availability or pricing details for its newly validated Trident Z DDR4-4333MHz 16GB (8GBx2) memory kits.
