G.SKILL unveils 192GB kit of its Trident Z Royal DDR4 RAM

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Feb 1, 2019 4:25 am

Intel just released its monster new Xeon W-3175X processor (a huge 28C/56T beast that we reviewed here) but what are you going to do about a kit of RAM? That's where G.SKILL steps in with its just-announced 6-channel Trident Z Royal kit of memory that comes in a variety of different capacities.

G.SKILL's awesome Trident Z Royal RAM looks amazing in any PC but in a new 28C/56T beast from Intel it'd look even better. The company is offering the new kits in various different capacities that include DDR4-3200 speeds with lower latencies (14-14-14-34 and 16-18-18-38) in 48GB, 96GB, and 192GB kits. If you want the high-end stuff, G.SKILL also has a faster 192GB kit of DDR4-4000 with 17-18-18-38 timings, but it's also available in 48GB and 96GB kits.

SK Hynix: DDR5 memory in 2020, while DDR6 development begins

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Jan 30, 2019 1:31 am

SK Hynix research fellow Kim Dong-Kyun has said that the DDR5 memory standard could hit the P{C next year, where it will kick things off at a huge DDR5-5200 offering twice the bandwidth of DDR4-2666.

Last year SK Hynix developed a working prototype of a 16-gigabit (2GB) DDR5 DRAM chip that reached 5200 MT/s with just 1.1V. Kim explained: "We are discussing several concepts of the post DDR5. One concept is to maintain the current trend of speeding up the data transmission, and another is to combine the DRAM technology with system-on-chip process technologies, such as CPU".

 

The company is working on its own innovations that will continue to make DDR5 dazzle, developing technologies that will hopefully beat its competition which is also making DDR5 memory. Kim teased: "We have developed a multi-phase synchronization technology that enables keeping the voltage during a high-speed operation in a chip at a low level by placing multiple phases within the IP circuit, so the power used on each phase is low but the speed is high when combined".

 

Kim also said that the DDR6 memory standard is also in development, with memory makers aiming for twice the bandwidth and densities of DDR5 which will already offer significant improvements over DDR4.

Aimed at enthusiast gamers, Thermaltake's new WaterRam sports liquid-cooling to ensure longer memory life with lower operating temps, all with a splash of color. The memory comes in 8GB modules clocked in at DDR4-3200MHz with tight 16-18-18-38 timings and rated at 1.35V. The kits support Intel XMP 2.0 overclocking profiles and modules come in two 16GB (8GBx2) and 32GB (8GBx4) configurations. The WaterRam's RGB rocks 16.8 million colors with various profiles, and fits neatly into Thermaltake's fleet of radiant-lit hardware across its RGB Plus ecosystem.

 

The two-way liquid cooling array allows Thermaltake's WaterRam to maintain cool temps as low as 30C, and its higher-end copper water block and aluminum heat sink lets you choose between liquid cooling or conventional cooling.

The new high-end iChill RAM will be in capacities between 4-16GB and speeds of between 2400-4000MHz with an interesting heatspreader to keep it cool. A set of gaming RAM couldn't be complete without RGBs, with Inno3D giving its new iChill gaming RAM some RGBs to seal the deal.

 

Inno3D has explained its new iChill gaming memory: "The hatching product family will crawl out of its shell under the name i CHILL and will come in various capacities of 4GB up to 16GB at speeds of 2400MHz up to 4000MHz and with ultra-low latencies up to 15CL".

GIGABYTE to show off AORUS RGB RAM at Computex 2018

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Jun 4, 2018 2:39 am

Computex 2018 - GIGABYTE is reportedly set to unveil AORUS RGB memory because, well, why the hell not, right?

 

gigabyte-show-aorus-rgb-ram-computex-2018_06

 

The company will be unveiling new 16GB kits at 3200MHz (2 x 8GB) powered by their RGB Fusion technology, so when mixed with an AORUS motherboard you're going to get RGB perfection.

 

The only issue here is that you'll be locked into AORUS with both the motherboard and RAM, so if you shifted to another motherboard manufacturer, you're not going to have a good time with this RAM. Hmm.

G.SKILL launch world's first DDR4-4700MHz RAM, sports RGB

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Feb 6, 2018 1:31 am

G.SKILL has just unveiled the fastest DDR4 on the planet with their new Trident Z RGB kit coming at a blistering 4700MHz, one-upping the already record-fast 4600MHz kit, also made by G.SKILL.

The latest Trident Z RGB kit arrives in a 16GB (8GB x 2) kit packing Samsung's best DDR4 B-die ICs, and tighter timings of CL19-19-19-39 that require 1.45V. G.SKILL's previous Trident Z RGB 4600MHz kit would only work on Intel's latest X299 motherboards at the time, but the new 4700MHz kit will work on the new Z370 chipset from Intel.
