Memory manufacturer G.Skill announced today what it says is the world's fastest 128GB and 64GB DDR4 memory kits. As usual, both memory kits are built with high performance Samsung B-die chips and target Intel's X299 platform and latest Core X-series processors, such as the 18-core Intel Core i9-9980XE.
The Trident Z RGB 128GB DDR4-4000 memory kit is comprised of eight 16GB DDR4 memory modules clocked at 4,000MHz with timings set at CL19-19-19-39. However, even more impressive is that G.Skill was able to achieve that speed and capacity with just a mere 1.35V. The memory manufacturer validated the memory kit on an Asus Prime X299-Deluxe II motherboard and the latest Intel Core i7-9800X octa-core processor with over five hours of Dang Wang's version of HCI Memtest.
The second of the two memory kits comes from G.Skill's Trident Z and therefore lacks RGB lighting. The 64GB memory kit is made up of eight DDR4 memory modules 8GB in size. This kit runs at 4,266MHz with timings of CL19-19-19-39. It also uses a slightly higher operating voltage than the previous kit described, at 1.45V. Again, G.Skill tested the Trident Z 64GB DDR4-4266 memory kit on the Asus Prime X299-Deluxe II motherboard, but it used a 12-core Intel Core i7-9920X processor instead.
Both of G.Skill's memory kits come with support for XMP 2.0 so users can set up memory parameters with a single click inside the motherboard BIOS.
G.Skill didn't reveal the pricing for the memory kits, but they are expected to cost a premium. The kits will be available at authorized G.Skill distribution partners in the first quarter of 2019.
