G.Skill announced new DDR5 memory series, including Trident Z5 and Trident Z5 RGB.Aimed at Best memory In the market, these kits will be designed specifically for Intel’s Alder Lake platform and run at speeds up to 6400MHz. Each kit will be equipped with hand-screened Samsung DDR5 ICs to ensure the best performance and overclocking capabilities.
Compared with CL46’s standard JEDEC DDR5 6400Mhz standard, the new Z5 kit seems very fast. We do not know how far these new memory chips can be pushed, nor do we know how much voltage they can withstand. But if history repeats itself, we can see another “Samsung B-die” moment for these new ICs.
Aesthetically, compared with the previous Trident Z model, the new DDR5 module has a more stylish and smooth appearance and shape, which may bring a more elegant feeling to the DIMM. The radiator itself is made of brushed aluminum and comes in black or silver.
The heat sink of the black Z5s has a matte black finish, and the side is decorated with smooth noodles with the Trident Z5 badge. The silver model also retains the black gloss stripes, but the heat sink is silver, giving the silver Z5 a two-color theme.
There will also be two color options in RGB and non-RGB variants. The light bar of the RGB model is located on the top of the radiator, similar to the previous Trident Z model.
You will be able to get three memory frequency configurations for the new Trident Z5s, ranging from 5600MHz to 6000MHz, and 6400MHz. Each frequency can be configured as CL40 timing or faster CL36 timing. All kits are configured with a 32GB (2x16GB) dual-channel kit.
Global availability will begin sometime in November this year.
