G.Skill Unleashes Fastest 32GB DDR3 Memory Kit at 2800MHz

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 23 comments

G.Skill claims to have built the fastest 32 GB memory kit, which runs at 2800 MHz.

G.Skill has launched its new Trident X 32GB DDR3 RAM (4 x 8 GB) that feature a clock rate of 2800 MHz and claims to be the fastest memory kit at this capacity. The Trident X F3-2800C11Q-32GTXD is known to be compatible with all Z77 chipsets when paired with an Ivy Bridge CPU.

The kit’s pricing, availability and compatibility at 2800 MHz with other platforms is presently unknown and will be announced closer to its February 2013 release.

    Click on picture, it goes to another page. Click on picture again, it opens a new window. The pictures doesn't get any bigger at all.

    Really?

    I think they will be more beneficial on AMD platform with APU

    But nieur, by the time one can afford that memory, can't they get a dedicated GPU?

    I'd really like to see a high end Haswell chipset(Z77 equivalent) offering DDR4. DDR3 might break 3000MHz, but I don't see it going much past that.

    wow.. 2800mhz ? now we can suggest it to some people on our community who has *REALLY* no budget limit for upgrading his/her computer :-|

    the voltage is probably through the roof and those timings are loose as hell. what application would need this anyway? ddr 3 1600 should be more then enough, even for overclocked processors.

    Trinity IGP seems to be tapped out at 2133MT/s so you will probably need to wait for the next-gen APUs for that.

    Haswell's memory controller is integrated in the CPU (just like i3/i5/i7 and their Celeron/Pentium counterparts) and only support DDR3. Whatever chipset the motherboard uses makes no difference.

    Seems like expensive overkill at this point...but computers do tend to go faster and faster as far as processors and memory.

    Worst way to view pictures I have ever seen on the internet. Developers of this system should be beaten and the QC that allowed this to make production should be beaten even more.

    Toms please fix this as it is the single biggest problem on your website. It should be relatively simple to make clicking a picture open some kind of popup of the enlarged version, jquery has tons of options to display things like this without doing popups or even new windows.

    It's the 2nd biggest problem, 1st one being Zak Islam.

    G.SKILL has always been my favorite RAM. They never fail to impress me.

    Such memory's usefulness is limited to only a handful of workloads (most of which are professional and/or only used to small amounts by most consumers) AFAIK. This isn't the sort of memory many of us would be able to make good use of ;) 

    I bet three internet cookies that voltage is 1.65V.

    how quickly gskill has become a world leader in memory. It used to be all Corsair, kingston, A-Data. Now Gskill has it all and keeps prices low.

    OC the GPU, then come back.

    I OC'ed my laptop's mobile 5730's memory, and I can bump up resolution, Anisotropic filtering or Anti-aliasing by one level with little hit to the FPS.

    Anything over 1866 or even 1600 mhz is just for bragging rights. You'd be lucky to get even a %1 improvement in any application.

    I thought 1600 mhz is the minimum you want for DDR3.
    DDR-400 mhz
    DDR2-800 mhz
    DDR3-1600 mhz
    DDR4-3200 mhz

    There are many applications where increasing memory performance beyond DDR3-1866 with decent timings offers huge performance improvements. Please don't apply your ignorant over-generalizations of other workloads on the industry as a whole. For example, some things such as many AVX accelerated workloads improve performance almost linearly with linearly increased memory bandwidth. Compression/decompression, rendering, some folding, and more also benefit greatly from improved memory performance. Granted, most of these aren't workloads that the average person does a ton of, but that doesn't mean that they don't exist. A lot of people rely on them for varying reasons and even some jobs are based on them.
