G.Skill plans to deliver 'Extreme Performance DDR5 Memory' with their Trident Z5 and Trident Z5 RGB Modules
G.Skill is one of the biggest names in the world of enthusiast-grade DDR4 memory, offering kits that are optimised to deliver some of the highest DRAM speeds on the market and others that are tuned to deliver the lowest CAS timings. In short, much of G.Skill's fame comes from its ability to provide some of the fastest DRAM modules for bandwidth-sensitive and latency-sensitive workloads.
Over the next year, the PC market will be entering the DDR5 memory era. Intel's Alder Lake processors will be supporting DDR5, as will AMD's next-generation Ryzen CPU platform. For hardcore PC enthusiasts, many wonder how DDR5 will impact the performance of these next-generation hardware platforms, especially under gaming workloads.
G.Skill has showcased their updated Trident series DDR5 module designs, which will be released this year in RGB and non-RGB forms. These modules will be released under Trident Z5 branding, and right now, the final specifications of these modules remain unknown. Below is what G.Skill has to say about their new Trident Z5 modules.
The G.SKILL Trident name is widely known for its amazing overclocking prowess, and the Trident Z5 for the DDR5 generation is no exception. Trident Z5 RGB and Trident Z5 series DDR5 memory kits are the ultimate choice for experiencing ultra-high performance on next-gen DDR5 platforms.
The all-new Trident Z5 family incorporates hypercar elements into the iconic Trident heatspreader design, creating a sleek and futuristic exterior. Features a black brushed aluminum strip inset into a smooth metallic silver or powdered matte black body, and topped with a sleek piano black top bar on the Trident Z5 series or a translucent RGB light bar optimized for smooth lighting on the Trident Z5 RGB series.
With their initial DDR5 memory offerings, G.Skill will likely launch highly binned DDR5 modules that will feature some of the highest module speeds and the tightest CAS timings on the market. That's how G.Skill has made its name before as a high-performance DRAM brand.
Over the coming weeks, we expect to hear more about G.Skill's Trident Z5 series modules. We will discuss the specifications of these modules when they are revealed to us.
