Memory expert G.Skill continues to expand its "Trident Z RGB (for AMD)" series of memory kits, commonly known as the TZRX models, with the addition this week of a 32GB quad-channel kit that clocks in at 3,466MHz.
Previously, Ryzen Threadripper owners opting for a 32GB memory kit were limited to DDR4 speeds of 3,200MHz. With its new DDR4-3466 Trident Z RGB memory kit, G.Skill is once again raising the bar for high-speed memory on the AMD HEDT (high-end desktop) X399 platform. The Taiwanese memory manufacturer's latest offering consists of four DDR4 memory modules, each with 8GB capacity in size. The modules operate at a guaranteed frequency of 3,466MHz with an operating voltage of 1.35V. The memory kit's timings are configured to CL18-22-22-42.
G.Skill validated the memory kit on Asus' latest ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha motherboard, along with AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 2950X 16-core processor. The memory kit passed over seven hours of MemTest and put in impressive AIDA64 benchmark results, such as 80,749 MB/s read, 98,747 MB/s write and 80,777 MB/s copy.
As always, G.Skill's Trident Z RGB memory kits come equipped with Intel XMP 2.0 profiles for an easy setup and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
The G.Skill DDR4-3466 Trident Z RGB for AMD memory kit will be available worldwide via G.Skill's distribution partners in the first quarter of this year. G.Skill hasn't revealed pricing yet.

How is this faster than the 3200Mhz 14-14-14-34 they have been selling for some time? You can compare timings (lower is better) with this chart: https://imgur.com/MhqKfkfReply
