    G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is thrilled to announce the newest extreme performance DDR5 memory, the Trident Z5 RGB and Trident Z5 series, tailor-made for the upcoming next-gen Intel platform. Designed for flagship performance and engineered with high-quality, hand-screened memory ICs, the Trident Z5 family DDR5 memory kits will launch at speeds up to DDR5-6400. At the peak of the memory specification stack stands the ultra-low-latency DDR5-6400 CL36-36-36-76 16GBx2 memory kit, constructed with high-performance Samsung DDR5 memory ICs.

    The G.SKILL Trident name is widely known for its amazing overclocking prowess, and the Trident Z5 for the DDR5 generation is no exception. Among the extreme performance memory specifications, the Trident Z5 family will include the incredibly low-latency specification of DDR5-6400 CL36-36-36-76 16GBx2, created with high-quality Samsung DDR5 ICs and best-in-class components. Compared to the standard DDR5-4800 CL40, the vast increase in frequency speed and tighter latency pushes DDR5 performance to new heights.

    No doubt you'll be able to push them further with some manual OCs also.

    Coming from DDR4 those timings look shocking. Looking forward to someone doing a detailed comparison because I have no idea what the performance of this will be.

    edit - Just read a Chinese leakers take on DDR5 and he says that DDR5 RAM kits need to be overclocked to at least 8000 MT/s in order to notice any performance gains over DDR4-3600. Doesn’t look like it will pay off to be an early adopter on this ram.

    Yes I was just reading that.

    Primarily because Alder Lake will most likely have to run the higher speed DDR5 in gear 2 (or higher).
    So you may actually be better off running lower speed DDR4 with tighter timings in gear 1 (1:1 mode).
    If true that could make DDR5 a bit of a bust.

    Will be interesting to see the benchmark comparisons to see if DDR5 is worth it / does anything better than DDR4.

    I'm several years away from DDR5 - DDR4 is plenty fast for now. Things should be much better by then!
