G.Skill shows DDR5-8000 kit running on an Intel Core i9 13900K

New DDR5 kits are available on the market. Featuring extreme memory bandwidth performance, these will not disappoint you. G.Skill announced this fastest retail DDR5 memory kit. It was also announced that DDR5-7800, DDR-7600, and DDR5-7400 kits are on the way. At DDR5-8000, the latest Trident Z5 RGB memory is ready to compete with the best RAM on the market.

The latest DDR5-8000 memory kits are from G.Skill’s Trident Z5 RGB lineup and are available with an aluminum heatsink and an RGB LED bar in two colors: matte black (F5-8000J3848H16GX2-TZ5RK) and metallic silver (F5-8000J3848H16GX2-TZ5RS). G.Skill binned the memory modules with low latencies of CL38-48-48-128, and it presented two 16 GB modules clocked at 8,000 MHz with a voltage of 1.45V to hit the advertised data rate.

The Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-8000 is not an ordinary memory kit but a dual-channel solution specifically tested, and it requires a competent processor with a strong IMC (integrated memory controller). You’ll need one of Intel’s 13th Generation Raptor Lake chips; it is optimized for Intel’s Z790 platform and 13th Generation Raptor Lake CPUs, which are superior to AMD’s Ryzen 7000 lineup regarding integrated memory controller (IMC) strength. Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-8000 is only proven on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 APEX motherboard. This is the best choice for overclocking enthusiasts.

G.Skill tested this new memory module kit with the flagship Core i9-13900K on Asus’ ROG Maximus Z790 Apex, a motherboard that is explicitly designed for overclocking.

With this combination, you can experience even more excellent performance. Its transfer rate is a massive 66.69% improvement on the native JEDEC speeds of DDR5-4800. It gained recognition for providing top-quality memory modules created for Intel systems. This is not new for overclocker enthusiasts because they have already gained new heights with these kits pushing above 10,000 Mbps. The world record expectations with these latest kits are not impossible.

the DDR5-8000 memory kit is flagship overclockable and features Intel XMP 3.0 memory overclocking profile support. It will be available worldwide in the last month of this year, 2022, through the G.SKILL distribution partners. These memory kits allow you to overclock with the motherboard BIOS. Newegg has listed the price of the metallic silver version at $529.99, whereas the matte black version costs $534.99. These kits will be available on the market very soon. This is the biggest news for all the overclocking enthusiasts seeking the best performance from their PCs.
