Until recently enthusiasts who would like to use the fastest DDR4 memory with their Skylake-S processors had to use 4 GB DIMMs based on 4 Gb chips, typically sold in pairs for a 8 GB total memory. This week G.Skill has introduced three new sets of Trident Z memory modules that come with either an extremely high clock rate, or very aggressive timings.
The new G.Skill Trident Z memory modules based on Samsung’s 8 Gb DDR4 ICs and are available in 8 GB and 16 GB versions. The 8 GB DRAM sticks are rated to run at 3200 (CL13 13-13-33), 3466 (CL14 14-14-34) or 4266 (CL19 23-23-43) MT/s data rates, whereas 16 GB modules can work at 3200 and 3466 MT/s data rates at...
