G.Skill Outs New DDR4-3600 Memory Kit

G.Skill's new 16 GB kit (2 x 8GB) is the newest addition to its Trident Z lineup, and it has a frequency of 3600 MHz with an impressive CAS latency of 15-15-15-35, which is decidedly low for the speed of the memory. The RAM kit is XMP 2.0-compatible, and it operates at 1.35 volts. G.Skill seems to be getting more juice for the jolt with this new memory kit.

The new 16 GB G.Skill Trident Z DDR4-3600 memory kit will be available via authorized G.Skill distributors at the end of April.

    It seems they've reached a new level with this frequency. Also the latency isn't too bad, considering DDR4 sticks go upto 18. I'd love to see benchmarks of this RAM.

    This kit should be marvellous for my future Zen build.

    Ram density is to low for my preference, but otherwise that's a solid kit of ram.

    Perhaps this is veering off topic, but I've heard that the way that Windows handles graphics card memory, it's best to have more than twice as much RAM as you have VRAM. If this is true, 16GB would be a bit low for the next gen graphics cards coming out, wouldn't it? Especially if you are looking at GP100 (16-32GB VRAM).

    I wish I could recall. It was mentioned somewhere right around when the Titan X came out. It didn't have anything to do with me at the time, so I didn't pay it much mind, but someone suggested that ideally you'd have 3x as much RAM as VRAM, making its 12GB of VRAM problematic to fully utilize for most people. I guess it has something to do with Windows keeping copies of various things in RAM which is also stored in VRAM. I'd be glad if someone more knowledgeable about this could clarify, since I haven't been able to find anything concrete on the subject with a few google searches this morning (though I did find some mention of storing copies of VRAM contents in RAM, just without adequate details).

    Hmmmm, I have been seeing a lot of "articles" about fast DDR4 but no benchmarks here.
    Are those articles just ads?
