G.Skill has just shown off their ultra-fast Trident Z5 DDR5 memory kits, rated at up to 8000 Mbps, or 66% faster than the standard JEDEC requirements. With their ultra-fast Trident Z5 DDR5 memory kits, G.Skill offers consumers transfer speeds of up to 8000 Mbps at more than $500.
Regarding memory kits, G.Skill’s Trident Z5 DDR5-8000 is the quickest option. The F5-8000J3848H16GX2-TZ5RK kit, like all of the Trident Z5 line, is available in silver and black and includes RGB LEDs. But the transfer rate is where this kit outperforms the rest.
G.Skill’s DDR5-8000-rated Trident Z5 memory kit has 1.45V voltage, 32GB maximum capacity, CL38 timings (38-48-48-128), and a frequency of 2666MHz (16 GB per DIMM). This memory kit features a dual-channel architecture and has been tested with Intel’s Z790 platform with 13th-generation Raptor Lake processors. According to sources, the kit was only certified on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 APEX motherboard, which makes sense given that this kit is primarily aimed at overclockers and enthusiasts, and the APEX is currently the best motherboard for RAM overclocking.
Compared to the slower Native JEDEC rates (only DDR5-4800), DDR5-8000 significantly improves (66.6 percent). Overclockers have previously pushed DDR5 kits past 10,000 Mbps, but we should expect to see much higher world records with these kits.
In terms of cost, Japanese store PC-ones is selling the identical G.Skill Trident Z5 DDR5-8000 RAM kit for 80,840 Yen, equating to a whopping $572. That’s a lot more than the most expensive Z790 motherboards cost right now.
The price difference between this and the APEX Z790 is roughly $120 US, which is outrageous. Still, given that this kit will be available in limited quantities, we can anticipate overclockers to snap up all kits. The identical kit will be available shortly on Newegg and Amazon, and we will keep you updated as soon as the product sales page is available.
