Starting off with the Trident-Z family which will feature clock frequencies ranging from 2800 MHz up to a staggering 4000 MHz, this family will include kits in 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB capacities. The memory shipped will have variation of timings and will range from 1.2 - 1.25V models in the 2800 MHz kit to the standard 1.35V kits and 4.0 GHz kit with up to 1.4V. The Trident-Z family is built with the highest quality, Samsung IC memory chips and features full overclocking support with Intel's XMP 2.0 mode (Intel Xtreme Profile 2.0). The kit features a brushed metallic heatsink with dual color construction and single-piece design that effectively transfers heat from the chips to the heatspreader. The design for the Trident-Z really stands out from the rest of DDR4 memory offerings.
The second family is the Ripjaws V which is the latest iteration of G.Skills renowned Ripjaws brand which has lasted the consumer space since many years. The kits are available in five different colors that include Blazing Red, Steel Blue, Radiant Silver, Gunmetal Gray, and Classic Black.
