G.SKILL reveals its new high-end Trident Z5 DDR5 memory with frequencies of up to 6400MHz
The release of Intel's much anticipated Alder Lake CPUs is slowly but surely approaching, and a couple of leaked benchmarks have already suggested that these new processors could potentially give AMD a run for its money. Meanwhile, memory manufacturers are gearing up their DDR5 lineups in order to provide compatible RAM for enthusiasts who decide to upgrade to Alder Lake. The Taiwanese company G.SKILL has now cut to the chase and revealed its top-of-the-line Trident Z5 DDR5 memory.
According to a report by wccftech, G.SKILL's Trident Z5 RAM will come in DDR5-5600, DDR5-6000 and DDR5-6400 variants and features quick CL36 timings. The equipped memory cells made by Samsung are supposedly hand-picked, which should allow for consistently high performance. We have to wait for according benchmarks to see if G.SKILL's flagship DDR5-RAM can in fact keep these promises, which certainly look enticing on paper. Previous entries in the G.SKILL Trident line of memory (from US$84 on Amazon) often had enough headroom and potential for further overclocking.
The brushed aluminum heat spreaders of G.SKILL's new Trident Z5 DDR5 memory certainly look quite a bit more calm and elegant in comparison to previous Trident modules. Being a flagship product that is geared towards gamers, the Trident Z5 RAM of course features RGB lighting which can be controlled via the according Trident Z Lighting Control software, but there will also be SKUs without RGB functionality. G.SKILL has not yet revealed the pricing of the new DDR5-RAM, but the 2x16GB kits are expected to be available worldwide starting this November.
