DDR5

With memory manufacturers clamoring over themselves to push out DDR5 in time for the upcoming launch of Intel's Alder Lake processors, G.Skill has unveiled its latest premium Trident Z5 kits. The latest Trident kits are based on Samsung's new DDR5 memory chips and range in speed from DDR5-5600 to DDR5-6400, with latencies of either CL36 or CL40. Meanwhile, G.Skill has also opted to use this opportunity to undertake a complete design overhaul from its previous DDR4 memory, with a fresh new look and plenty of integrated RGB. G.Skill Trident Z5 DDR5 Memory Specifications Speed Latencies Voltage Capacity DDR5-6400 36-36-36-76 40-40-40-76 ??? 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-6000 36-36-36-76 40-40-40-76 ??? 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-5600 36-36-36-76 40-40-40-76 ??? 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) Looking at performance, the top SKU comes with fast speeds of DDR5-6400, with either a latency of CL...
