G.Skill Boosts DDR4 8GB Module Speed up to 4133MHz
John Williamson / 3 years ago
G.Skill is synonymous with extreme memory speeds and a common choice for professional overclockers looking to break bandwidth records. Their latest product range is based on massive DDR4 frequencies which range between 3600MHz to a staggering 4133MHz. Please note, this refers to 8GB DIMMs in a number of different configurations. Here is a complete rundown of the high-bandwidth TridentZ modules:
To achieve the maximum frequencies, G.Skill utilizes premium Samsung ICs and validated the 4133MHz kit with an i7-6700K. Here are the results which show the memory is perfectly stable and reaches the full bandwidth:
The elite-tier of DDR4 memory is incredible and a huge boost from the fastest DDR3 kits available. Furthermore, DDR4 is becoming more affordable, and replaced DDR3 on the mainstream Z170 platform. As a result, DDR4 is no longer consigned to the expensive X99 professional chipset. The huge bandwidth on G.Skill’s TridentZ modules now applies to 8GB DIMMs instead of the original 4GB SKUs which were quite limiting. Sadly, we don’t have a a suggested retail price at this time but this information should be revealed quite soon.
Clearly, the TridentZ memory is designed for extreme overclocking, but it’s always impressive to see the operating frequency on premium modules. On another note, the TridentZ DIMMs adopt a fantastic heatsink design which accompanies a red and black gaming build superbly.
