G.Skill Announces Tighter Timed, Low Latency and High Frequency Trident Z RGB (Up To) DDR4-4266 MHz Memory Kits


G.Skill has announced their latest Trident Z RGB series memory kits that are a combination of high frequencies and low latency. These memory kits will be available in a range of different SKUs in 16 GB and 32 GB options with frequencies as high as 4266 MHz.

G.Skill Releases New DDR4 Trident Z RGB Memory Kits With Up To 4266 MHz Clock Speeds, CL17 Timings

G.Skill has been launching a vast array of DDR4 memory kits since they got their hands on the new rigorously hand-binned, high-performance Samsung B-die DDR4 IC components. They recently did launch the fastest 32 GB memory kit and have models that reach speeds as high as DDR4-4600. It looks like G.Skill isn't stopping at that.

The latest DDR4 Trident Z RGB kits coming from G.Skill come with better tuned timings and stick to the high frequencies. There are three different SKUs that come in DDR4-4000, DDR4-4133 and the DDR4-4266 MHz options. The 4000 and 4133 MHz DIMMs feature CL17-17-17-37 timings and will be available in 16 and 32 GB variants while the 4266 MHz memory kit will feature CL17-18-18-38 timings and come in 32 GB variant only. The 4000 MHz kit sticks with a voltage of 1.35V, the 4133 MHz kit comes with 1.4V while the 4266 MHz kit ships with 1.45V.

As far as availability is concerned, the memory kits are planned for market release in January 2018 and hopefully, the DRAM supply will be better in the coming quarter.

Press Release - G.SKILL Releases Ultra Low Latency CL17 Trident Z RGB DDR4-4266MHz Kits

Taipei, Taiwan (24 November 2017) – G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is thrilled to announce new ultra-low latency additions to the Trident Z RGB series memory kits, starting from DDR4-4000MHz CL17-17-17-37 up to DDR4-4266MHz CL17-18-18-38 32GB (4x8GB). This is the first time in tech history that DDR4 memory kits above DDR4-4000MHz speed is available at the low CL17 timing, and with lower timings, memory kits can utilize high frequency to its fullest potential with improved memory performance. To achieve the ultra-low latency of CL17, these new memory kits are made with rigorously hand-binned, high-performance Samsung B-die DDR4 IC components.

World’s First DDR4-4266MHz Kit with CL17 Timing

As the leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory, G.SKILL is always improving and reaching higher levels of performance than ever before. The fastest selection from the new Trident Z RGB lineup is available at DDR4-4266MHz CL17-18-18-38 32GB (4x8GB) at 1.45V. The following screenshot shows this new memory kit running on the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO motherboard with the Intel Core i7-8700K processor.
