G.Skill Announces The World’s Fastest DDR5 Memory kit ‘DDR5-6800 Trident Z5’ To Supercharge Alder Lake CPUs

G.Skill has announced the Trident Z5 DDR5 RAM for the Alder Lake CPUs.

The much-awaited 12th Gen Core Alder Lake launch has started a large number of product announcements from several system builders and hardware partners. G.Skill did the same. They have brought in a high-end Trident Z5 DDR5-6800 memory kit specially designed for Alder Lake.

Currently, G.skill has their all-new ‘world’s fastest DDR5 memory kit’ to boost about. It should be kept in mind that multiple memory makers have teased about faster speed memories before today’s Alder Lake launch, but G.Skill is the first to officially announce a DDR5 memory kit having a 6,800 MT/s data rate.

This kit goes beyond JEDEC’s official specifications criteria for the DDR5 standard (4800-6400 MT/s). The company claims it to be an “extreme” memory kit manufactured to tap into the performance potential of DDR5.

G.Skill has somehow managed to achieve a 6,800 MT/s data transfer rate at tighter timings. The 32GB (2x16GB) Trident Z5 DDR5-6800 operates at 38-38-38-76.

This new memory kit supports Intel’s new XMP 3.0 memory profile. XMP 3.0 introduced recently by Intel offers fairly fast and simple memory tuning. It supports additional profiles, including 3 vendor profiles, and 2 rewritable profiles. It is the fastest kit to get a formal introduction.


G.Skill has not yet announced pricing and availability details for the 32GB Trident Z5 DDR5-6800 kit. We, however, expect it to carry early adopter pricing.

“G.Skill is dedicated to develop ever-faster overclocking memory on each new generation of Intel platform. And we are very excited to have worked with Intel to develop extreme performance DDR5 memory for the latest Intel Z690 platform,” says Tequila Huang, corporate vice president of G.Skill International.
