G.Skill Introduces the TridentX DDR3-3000 MHz 32 GB Kit

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 26 comments

G.Skill’s new TridentX DDR3 32 GB memory kit is clocked at 3000 MHz and is fully compatible with Intel’s 4th Generation Core processors.

G.Skill has launched a series of ultra high speed memory for Intel’s 4th Generation Core processors, which includes the TridentX DDR3-3000 32 GB memory kit (4 x 8 GB) that has successfully passed Memtest pro with the low voltage of 1.65 V while being paired with an Intel i7-4770K processor and an Asus Maximus VI Extreme motherboard.

All G.Skill memory products come with a lifetime warranty and support from the company’s technical team via online forums, Facebook, telephone and email.

    Still waiting on DDR4...

    1.65v is low voltage? JEDEC spec is only 1.5v

    As much as I like G.Skill ram would be nice to include latencies as well ram clock rates and voltages alone don't come close to telling the whole story when it comes to performance and efficiency.

    I'd rather pay for overpriced DDR4 ram than overpriced DDR3 ram.

    $1,700 just for RAM? Yea- NO.

    I still think it's clocked at 750 MHz. 3GHz is the data rate. At 3GHz clock rate it'd have data rate of 12GHz, which would be ridiculously fast but it just isn't technically possible at the moment...

    32gb and 3GHz is overkill for the vast majority of users.
    Oh and $1700? That is FAR too expensive for RAM. Good look on the sales.

    And that price you could make a great build even with 32gb RAM.

    We are talking about DDR3 RAM here so a 3GHz clock would be 6GT/s or Gbps/pin. You were thinking about QDR signaling like GDDR5.

    So that 3GT/s DDR3 RAM would be running on a 1.5GHz clock. That's already almost on par with the 3.2GT/s upper-range originally expected out of DDR4.

    Those are only 2933. Not 3000. Still, though....price...ouch! No thanks. I'll stop at 2400.

    I doubt they actually have separate SKUs for 2933 and 3000. Most likely a miscommunication somewhere - 2933 and 3000 are only 2% apart and it is extremely unlikely that 2933 parts would lack sufficient headroom to manage 3000.

    The more likely explanation is that someone somewhere based their clock calculation on 133MHz base to come up with 2933 while someone else may have used 100MHz and ended up with 3000 as the nearest fit. Happens a lot when different CPUs derive their memory clocks from different base frequencies.

    Holy smokes $1700??!! That's gotta be a typo. You can buy 32GB for $170!

    Well this is like sport car with nitro boost. You can do some serious overclockin for so long time that you can run pi-calculation-test... There is no upper limit what some people are villing to pay extreme products. And no there is not any sense on that ;-)

    sounds like a waste of money to me, seriously, how much performance increase can these give?
    i'd rather buy a good gpu with the money i can save by getting a decent ram

    Doesn't look like a typo.

    Here's a link to the 2800GT/s variant, $1200:

    @agnickolov thats the equation for DDR5 rams, this rams real clock is 1500 Mhz and since its Dual data rate, it performs at DDR3-3000 Mhz speeds. and for DDR4-5 you have to multiply it by 4 and like you stated if if it it is 3Ghz then its real clock is 750 Mhz.
