G.Skill Launches Trident Z Neo DDR4 for AMD Ryzen 3000 Processors
G.Skill is introducing a new line of DDR4 memory modules aimed at Ryzen 3000 series processors and the X570 platform. The new Trident Z Neo line features 8 GB or 16 GB DIMMs wrapped in a stylized dual-tone heatspreader with black brushed aluminum and powder coated silver halves along with 8-zone RGB lighting running along the top edge. Available later this month, the Trident Z Neo kits range in capacities from 16 GB to 64 GB and run DDR4 2666, 3200, or 3600 MHz. Aimed at AMD Ryzen, the kits feature low latencies with the 8GB stick kits hitting 14-15-15-35 at 3600 MHz (1.40V) and the 16 GB DIMMs running as low as 16-16-16-36 at 3600 MHz or 14-14-14-34 at 3200 MHz. Of course, Ryzen 3000 prefers a balance of memory speed and latency with 3600 MHz CL14 being a good base and 3733 MHz being the sweet spot for memory speed with latencies as low are you can get them while being comfortable with the voltage required to get there in a stable manner. Speaking of overclocking, G.Skill notes that its memory modules with reportedly high quality chips and 10 layer PCB were able to hit 5774 MHz on a MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard under extreme overclocking conditions. On the other side of things, they were also able to run 3600 CL18 using less than 1.2 volts on the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Formula. Pricing has not yet been revealed, but expect similar pricing to its other RGB LED equipped Tridemt Z modules. The new kits were not available at time of publication, but G.Skill says to expect them to be available for purchase before the end of the month.
