G.Skill readies Quad-Channel DDR4-4200 RAM Kit for Intel's latest Skylake-X CPUs
As the new Intel Skylake-X CPUs and X299 platform start to hit the market, specifically designed components that complement Intel’s new architecture make their debut as well. G.Skill, the renowned memory module manufacturer, announced its new quad-channel DDR4-4200 RAM kits that work best with Intel’s Skylake-X products.
The new memory modules that support Intel’s X299 platform are part of G.Skill’s Trident Z brand and are based on Samsung’s 20nm 8Gb DDR4 DRAM modules. The kit capacity ranges from 16GB all the way up to 128GB and features the signature Trident Z RGB LED lighting array. G.Skill is also releasing the new Trident Z Black series dual-channel DDR4-4400 kit for the upcoming Kaby Lake-X CPUs.
Voltages for the Skylake-X kits run from 1.35 to 1.4 V. Due to the higher clocks, the kits also have increased latencies, starting at CL16 and reaching CL19 with the DDR4-4200 modules. Data transfer rates for the announced kits range from 3600 MT/s all the way up to 4200 MT/s. G.Skill did not mention any pricing information in their press release.
