G.SKILL Launches 4700MHz Trident Z RGB DDR4 Memory Kit

Trident Z RGB DDR4: Faster Than Ever

Leading performance memory manufacturer G.SKILL has done it again. This time they have pushed their Trident Z RGB DDR4 line to hit 4700MHz out of the box. This is for their 16GB (2x8GB) kit with CL19-19-19-39 tested timings at at 1.45V. This easily loads up via XMP on supporting Intel systems making it a hassle-free overclock. Just four months ago G.SKILL introduced 32GB 4266MHz kits for their Trident Z RGB line. Now it is significantly faster.

Naturally, this kit uses Samsung DDR4 B-die ICs and validated on the MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and Intel Core i7-8700K processor. G.SKILL even provides the screenshots to prove it.

How Much Does it Cost?

Considering the 16GB 4266MHz TridentZ RGB costs $329.99 and that there are no competition for 4700MHz, expect to pay quite a bit more. Don’t even be surprised if it ends up costing almost twice as much. The actual availability of the kit starts sometime in Q2 2018, so expect a more definitive pricing information closer to release.

    Frankly I don’t really get it. I understand that 24/7/365 overclocking nerds wet pants when they see one of those, but otherwise I see no ordinary workload which will benefit from such high frequency.

    Sure, there are highly specialized branches of research like analyzing nuclear particle decay or highly advanced medical modeling which benefit from raw speed of memory, but that is entirely different market. ECC is required.

    This kit above is probably only eViagra to make ePen even bigger. 😉

      Vorlon,

      Actually you would be surprised at how much the massive increase in speed helps the latest high core count CPU’s such as Intel’s i9 CPU’s and AMD’s Threadripper chips. Keeping that many cores fed is a difficult task, even for a quad-channel memory subsystem and every Mhz increase realizes noticeable benefits in most highly-threaded workloads. Gaming is not the only thing done on a home PC, even if some of us work AND play on the same machine.
