About a week ago we talked a bit about the Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 32GB memory kit that operated at 4,333MHz and claimed the title of the world's fastest 4x8 32GB kit. That title lasted only about a week for Corsair because G.SKILL has just launched a new, and even faster 4x8 32GB DDR4 RAM kit. G.SKILL calls its kit the Trident Z series DDR4-4400MHz 32GB kit and, as you can tell by the name, it operates at a blistering 4,400 MHz. The new RAM kit offers timings of CL19-19-19-39 at 1.5V. G.SKILL notes that with the introduction of the ASUS OptiMem technology that complements its T-Topology layout... Read more...
G.SKILL has trotted out another hopped up memory kit for latest hot processor launch to go along with the memory kits that it had already revealed for the AMD Ryzen and the Intel Kaby Lake-X platforms. G.SKILL's latest is specifically designed for 8th generation Intel Core "Coffee Lake" processors and includes the Trident Z and Trident Z RGB kits for Z370 motherboards. The RAM kits are made using ultra-high performance Samsung B-die DDR4 ICs. G.SKILL's Trident Z RGB memory kit is DDR-4000MHz with timings of CL18-19-19-39 and is 32GB with a quartet of 8GB modules. The image of the charts... Read more...
G.Skill has rolled out some RAM for computer enthusiasts out there who have the cheddar to plunk down for the Intel's Kaby Lake-X/X299 HEDT platform. This would be THE memory to cram into your Intel Core i9 X-Series rig. The RAM kit is DDR4-4600MHx CL19 and is built using hand-selected, high-quality Samsung B-die IC components. What that means is that the memory was built with the ultimate performance in mind. G.Skill is offering the RAM in two color variations with one featuring a silver body and white accents and the other with a black body and black accents. Other than the color, the RAM is...

Hot on the heels of the launch of one of the most disruptive CPUs in recent memory, G.SKILL has announced that it has a full complement of 32GB+ memory kits that will perfectly suit AMD's latest high-end platform, Ryzen Threadripper (read our full review). When Ryzen first launched earlier this year, hitting even DDR4-3000 seemed like it required luck, but AMD's Zen platforms as a whole have matured a lot since then, hence the reason that G.SKILL is now offering a super-fast DDR4-3600 kits for those looking to maximize their overall system performance, not just the memory (AMD's Infinity Fabric...

Gaming enthusiasts understand the impact that a proper gaming mouse can have on their performance. Whether it be for fast flick-shots in CS:GO or for programming macros in MOBAs, having a gaming mouse tailored to your needs is an absolute necessity. For this review, we compared three newer mid-range gaming mice from a few top PC accessory brands: the Corsair Sabre RGB, SteelSeries Rival 500, and the G.Skill RIPJAWS MX780.  It is important to note that there are different factors that could determine the way a user performs with each mouse. That being said, this review will act as a specification... Read more...
In a broad sense, there are two types of keyboards in this world—those that use mechanical key switches and those that don't. If that sounds like something a keyboard snob would say, so be it, this editor stands guilty as charged, and happily so. We can accept that not everyone will find just cause to spend a premium on a mechanical plank, but one thing we'll never concede is that even the best membrane keyboards are on equal footing as those with mechanical key switches. Stick bamboo under our fingernails (not really) or subject us to a marathon of Matthew McConaughey movies (dear God no!), such... Read more...
With the launch of Intel's Haswell-E processors and X99 chipset right around the corner, everyone aside from Intel itself has been previewing products that complement the platform. Most notably, this involves motherboard and memory manufacturers, with some choosing to remain mum in advance of the launch, with others happy to talk about what's en route. G.SKILL is the latest to jump on the early-preview bandwagon, and in doing so reveals seven different sets of DDR4 RAM it'll be selling. As Haswell-E and X99 in general target the enthusiast market, and features the use of a quad-channel memory controller... Read more...
iBuypower is offering an AMD-based system in its Chimera 4SE line, which is designed to give users serious gaming performance without a wallet-busting price tag. The Chimera is part of iBuypower’s Signature Series, which includes iBuypower’s highest-priced and most powerful gaming systems, like the Revolt and Valkyrie. The centerpiece of the Chimera 4SE FX Ultimate is an all AMD-based CPU/GPU combo. The processor is a 4.7GHz (5.0GHz with Turbo), eight-core AMD FX-9590, designed with overclockers in mind. It’s cooled by a closed-loop liquid cooler, which seems to be the way most... Read more...
iBuypower is offering an AMD-based system in its Chimera 4SE line, which is designed to give users serious gaming performance without a wallet-busting price tag. The Chimera is part of iBuypower’s Signature Series, which includes iBuypower’s highest-priced and most powerful gaming systems, like the Revolt and Valkyrie. So, what makes a desktop PC a Chimera 4SE? The chassis, for one thing. The Chimera has a custom chassis with unique artwork that makes the Chimera easily identifiable. (We talk more about the chassis on the next page.) Overclocking is another Chimera feature.... Read more...
We spent a little time checking out the Technology Showcase at IDF13 and spotted a number of cool pieces of hardware on the show floor we thought you’d like to check out. It seemed a number of popular memory manufacturers all got the same memo, as Crucial, Kingston and G.SKILL were all showing off DDR4 memory modules in their booths, among other existing memory and storage related products.          The focus in Crucial’s booth was clearly on DDR4 memory, which will eventually usher in higher clock speeds at lower voltages on the desktop. G.SKILL...

You know G.Skill as a maker of memory products, including system memory and solid state drives (SSDs). The company is also active in the overclocking scene where its modules have set frequency records. All of that is fine and dandy and will continue to be a focus, but moving forward, G.Skill also wants to be recognized as a maker of PC peripherals. G.Skill's enhanced persona will kick off at the Computex convention in Taipei next week. That's where G.Skill "will be making a strong entrance in the field of PC gaming peripherals" starting with newly engineered gaming headsets. Here's a teaser shot... Read more...
Why choose between speed or capacity when you can have both? So proposes memory maker G.Skill, which claims its new Trident X Series 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3-2800 memory kit (F3-2800C11Q-32GTXD) is the fastest clocked 32GB kit you'll find on the entire planet. "Being the first to introduce such large capacity memory kit running at an incredible speed of 2800MHz, G.Skill continues to impress power users/professional overclockers by offering the best memory solution with highest quality," G.Skill said in a statement. The kit consists of four sticks of 8GB memory modules. Alone or apart, they're rated to... Read more...
To coincide with the release of Intel's current flagship Sandy Bridge-E processor and companion X79 chipset, a number of Intel’s memory partners released new quad-channel memory kits optimized for the platform. Previous Intel platforms were designed to offer optimal performance with two or three-channel memory configurations; Sandy Bridge-E and the X79 Express, however, perform best with a quad-channel setup. As such, we thought it would be a good idea to round-up a varied group of quad-channel memory kit options to see how each performed with a Sandy Bridge-E CPU and the X79 Express chipset,...

To coincide with the release of Intel's current flagship Sandy Bridge-E processor and companion X79 chipset, a number of Intel’s memory partners released new quad-channel memory kits optimized for the platform. Previous Intel platforms were designed to offer optimal performance with two or three-channel memory configurations; Sandy Bridge-E and the X79 Express, however, perform best with a quad-channel setup. Around the same time, Intel had also defined a new Extreme Memory Profile (XMP 1.3) specification, for easy optimization and overclocking. As such, we thought it... Read more...
