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'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.
