The memory manufacturer G.Skill has accelerated its 24 GiByte DDR5 modules optimized for the LGA1700 socket using Intel XMP 3.0 for the first time to DDR5-8000 and a CAS latency of 38 clock cycles. The memory kit from the Trident Z5 RGB series has a total capacity of 48 GiByte and is positioned at the top of the DDR5 portfolio.
Under the name Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-8000 CL38 Memory Kit, G.Skill has presented its first DDR5 memory kit with new 24 GiByte modules. The fast memory pair works with a speed of 8,000 MT/s and a CAS latency of 38 clock cycles and is optimized for current motherboards with socket LGA1700 and a 700 chipset for Intel’s 13th core generation.
2 × 24 GiByte DDR5-8000 CL38-48-48-127
Thanks to a correspondingly stored profile, which works with Intel XMP 3.0, the two 24 GiByte memory modules, which in all likelihood rely on memory ICs from SK Hynix, achieve an unprecedented combination of a very high memory clock and particularly low timings. This in turn leads to particularly short storage latencies and fast access times.
Validated on the Intel Core i9-13900K with Z790 chipset
The DDR5-8000 CL38-48-47-127 validated on a current Intel Core i9-13900K with a command rate (“CR”) of two clock cycles (“2T”) ensure high memory throughput of more than 123 GiByte per second reading and 120 GiByte per second writing for very fast copy processes. The manufacturer demonstrates corresponding results from the popular AIDA64 benchmark suite.
In order to achieve the high memory speeds of 8,000 MT/s or 4,000 MHz (effective) or 500 MHz (real) memory clock at such low timings, the manufacturer requires a voltage (“VDIMM”) of 1.45 volts.
G.Skill draws level with Corsair and Crucial
With its first modules with a capacity of 24 GiByte, G.Skill is catching up with Corsair and Crucial, a subsidiary of DRAM manufacturer Micron, which recently presented the first DDR5 memory kits with 24 GiByte and 48 GiByte DIMMs, respectively. Ryzen 7000 still has problems with the new memory modules and will probably need a new AGESA firmware.
