G.Skill Equips Low-Latency DDR4-3600 Kits With Samsung B-Die DRAM

As you speed up memory, you need to back off on the timings to ensure stability, which typically results in unchanged real-world latency. But what if you want to keep the quick timings and translate this into lower real-world latency? To do this, you'll need higher quality DRAM, which is exactly what G.Skill has used in its new memory kits.

The kits G.Skill is introducing today all share the same spec sheet, featuring either 32 GB or 64 GB total, spread over two or four 16 GB DDR4-3600 modules. At 3600 MHz, the modules are rated to operate at CL14-15-15-35 timings, which G.Skill accomplished by using Samsung B-die ICs.

G.Skill did not specify the voltage required to run these modules, though we expect these to need more than the DDR4 JEDEC spec of 1.2V. Expect 1.35V, or possibly higher. But, that's not something you need to worry about, as the modules all include an XMP 2.0 profile that sets all the clocks, timings, and voltages for you, assuming you don't forget to enable it.

Other than that, there isn't much more information. The modules will come in the Trident Z Neo, Trident Z Royal, Trident Z RGB, and Ripjaws V flavors. No word on pricing yet.

    3600 CL14 is impressive

    though the difference of price between two kits of 3600CL 16 and a 3600CL18 is already quite big , i wonder how much the premium will be for the 3600CL14

    Running 3600 @ 16, I wouldn't mind a little upgrade. No date?

    Very interested in these. Any idea of a release date / model numbers? The have F4-3600C14D-16GTZNB https://www.amazon.com/dp/B084M86LP8?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1 - but this came out almost a year ago.

    So how much faster is Cl14 than Cl19 3600mhz GSkil? Would I notice the difference if I blinked?

    I doubt many would notice the difference in games, however, prosumer/production applications could benefit significantly.

    i'm throwing in some figures about what can bring better ram on ryzen 3000 series

    https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_ryzen_ram_scaling_effect_in_games,8.html
    command rate of 1T, choose dual rank modules instead of single rank, frequency, timings.
    by fine tuning all of that you can expect 5-10% increase in FPS in low resolution.


    now, if i had a 3600 C19 kit, i would try to lower the timings to 18 or even 16
