With AMD's new Ryzen 3000 processors making the rounds, we're seeing support from the company's hardware partners who are delivering fresh products including a slew of new X570 motherboards and new DDR4 memory kits. G.Skill is jumping into the fray with its new Trident Z Nero Series DDR4 memory kits that were specifically designed for operation with AMD’s latest desktop processor platform. The memory kits will be available in up to four configurations: 16GB (8GBx2), 32GB (8GBx4), 32GB (16GBx2) or 64GB (16GBx4). The Trident Z Neo Series is available in 2666MHz, 3000MHz, 3200MHz, or 3600MHz speeds. Those 3600MHz speeds are achievable at 1.4V and timings of CL14-15-15-35.... Read more...
G.Skill is very much involved in the overclocking community, and often pushes the limits with PC memory kits that offer enthusiasts breakneck speeds. It's not just about cranking out high-end RAM kits, though—G.Skill today announced that it is ponying up $25,000 in cash for this year's annual overclocking event at Computex. There are actually multiple events that will be taking place. The first is the 8th annual OC World Record Stage. For those follow the overclocking scene, this is one of the largest events in the extreme OCing community. This year's event will see 15 professional overclockers from around the world attempt to break as many benchmark records as they can. "This event will... Read more...
G.Skill announced new hexa-channel DDR4 memory kits that will fall into its Trident Z Royal product line. These new memory kits are geared towards Intel's new high-end Xeon W-3175X processor -- which we reviewed here -- and support high memory capacities and fast data transfer speeds. G.Skill first launched its Trident Z Royal memory kits towards the end of 2018. These DDR4 DIMMs are some of the more decorative memory modules available, as they come with either gold or silver heat spreaders that are highly polished. The RAM is also capped in artificial jewels that have RGB LED lights underneath. Prior to now, the Trident Z Royal product line was composed of dual- and quad-channel memory kits.... Read more...
It seems as though every few weeks we get a claim of the "world's fastest memory" coming from component manufacturers. Recently, there's been a battle between G.SKILL and Corsair, with the former firing off the latest salvo with the Trident Z RGB DDR4 memory kit. G.SKILL claims that the memory kit runs at a dizzying speed of 4700MHz with timings of CL19-19-19-39. The memory operates at 1.45 volts, and is available in a 16GB kit (2x8GB). As is typically the case with these ultra-fast memory kits, the Trident Z RGB makes use of Samsung DDR4 B-die ICs. According to G.SKILL, the memory was validated on an MSI Z370I Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard with an Intel Core i7-8700K processor. It also... Read more...
For the past few months, we've seen Corsair and G.Skill jockey for position when it comes to releasing the "World's Fastest" memory kits. Just last week, Corsair upped the ante with a Vengeance 32GB DDR4-4000 SO-DIMM kit. Today, G.Skill counters with its own Ripjaws kit boasting ultra-low memory timings. G.Skill's SO-DIMM kit, like the Corsair offering, is aimed at high-performance small-form factor (SFF) systems, which have typically be underserved when it comes to the availability of high-speed memory. In this case, the Ripjaws SO-DIMMs are available in a 32GB kit (4x8GB) operating at 4,000MHz. G.Skill says that the SO-DIMMs are built using hand-binned Samsung B-die DDR4 IC components and have...

G.SKILL is still churning out high-speed memory kits for overclockers and enthusiasts, pushing the frequency limits with increasingly faster RAM built from cherry picked memory chips. The result is that G.SKILL now offers several memory kits that top 4,000MHz. It's latest kits, however, shift the focus to latencies, offering power users the best of both worlds—high frequencies and tight timings. Here is a look at its new lineup: 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4-4266MHz, 17-18-18-38, 1.45V 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4-4133MHz, 17-17-17-37, 1.40V 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-4133MHz, 17-17-17-37, 1.40V 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4-4000MHz, 17-17-17-37, 1.35V 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-4000MHz, 17-17-17-37, 1.35V As with most of G.SKILL's highest...

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 with equalized trace lengths, it was able to deliver the fast operation speed with improved stability,...

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 shows some stress tests running on the memory kit that were performance with the RAM plugged into... 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 the same. G.Skill says that before this memory kit debuted, the only way to get DDR4-4600MHz was to... Read more...
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 bus directly benefits from faster memory). Both DDR4-3466 and 3600 kits are being made available with... Read more...
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 and use case comparison, with some analysis on what gaming styles and play types each mouse might... 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 blasphemy will never leave our lips. Ah, but you probably know this already, hence why you're here... 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 (like X79 did), G.SKILL is going to be initially selling kits that include only 4 or 8 DIMMs....
