G.Skill has expanded its range of Trident Z5 Neo RGB DDR5-6400 memory kits for AM5 and Ryzen 7000 taking speed to the next level.
Available in 32GB (2x16GB) and 48GB (2x24GB) capacities, the latest dual-channel kits break the 6,000MT/s barrier on AM5 following AMD’s recent AGESA 22.214.171.124c firmware update which allowed support for 8,000MT/s and beyond via manual overclocking.
Both kits are clocked at 6,400MT/s out of the box, with CL32-39-39 timings, and come covered by a black or white brushed aluminium heatsink topped by an RGB light bar configurable via ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, and G.Skill’s own lighting-control apps.
Users looking for a non-RGB version can wait a bit for those models to release or simply disable lighting inside G.Skill’s control software – the app doesn’t need to stay open after turning RGB off.
While 6,400MT/s should be obtainable without issue using EXPO, higher frequencies can rely on motherboard and CPU quality. For example, motherboards containing only two DDR5 slots tend to handle higher memory frequencies better.
We should also start to see even faster kits from G.Skill as they get tested using AGESA 126.96.36.199c.
Scheduled for September 2023 without official pricing yet, we expect these to launch at around £120 for the 32GB kit and £170 for the 48GB, backed by a lifetime warranty.
