G.SKILL's 16GB DDR4 RAM hits 4800MHz with Intel Core X

Armed with Intel's new high-end Core X Series CPUs, G.SKILL smashes the DDR4-4000 barrier across its 16GB, 64GB, and 32GB kits

Computex 2017 - G.SKILL today announced a high-speed memory breakthrough at the showfloor in Taipei, Taiwan by hitting DDR4-4800 speeds with its 16GB TridentZ kits--and breaking the DDR4-4000 threshold with its RGB memory.




Armed with Intel's new high-end Core X series of processors and X299 chipset motherboards, G.SKILL was able to push its 16GB (8GB x 2) DDR4 kits to an amazing 4800MHz with CL19-19- 19-39 timings. This inches G.SKILL even closer to the DDR4-5000 mark without liquid nitrogen cooling. The demo leveraged an Intel Core X-Series processor and a ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard.




G.SKILL also pushed its new RGB memory beyond DDR4-4000, too: the company pushed its ultra-high capacity 64GB (8GB x 8) Trident Z RGB DDR4 RAM kit to an impressive DDR4-4200MHz with CL19-21-21-41 timings, again using Intel's new Core X-Series processors and an ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe motherboard.




G.SKILL's 16GB (8GB x 2) Trident Z RGB kits were also overclocked to DDR4-4400MHz speeds with CL19-19-19-39 timings on a GIGABYTE X299 SOC Champion motherobard and an Intel Core X-Series processor.


Last but not least, we have the third high-speed breakthrough for Trident Z memory, this time with its 16GB modules.




G.SKILL was able to break the DDR4-4000 barrier with its 16GB RGB modules by hitting DDR4-4000MHz at CL17-18-18-38 with 32GB kits (16GB x 2). This demo leveraged an ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard in tandem with an Intel Core X-Series processor.


Note that Intel's XMP 2.0 profiles are required to hit these speeds.
