G.SKILL today announced its DDR5-6600 CL36 Trident Z5 memory kit. According to the company’s press release, this is the world’s fastest DDR5 memory kit, featuring extreme speed and low latency of DDR5-6600 CL36-36-36-76. The kit comprises 2x 16 GB modules (32 GB) and leverages Samsung’s DDR5 ICs to achieve its high performance.

From G.SKILL’s press release:

In the never-ending quest for memory performance, G.SKILL is proud to reveal the latest addition of ultra-high DDR5 frequency to the flagship Trident Z5 family. While reaching an extreme frequency speed of DDR5-6600, this memory kit specification is also created with an ultra-low timing at CL36-36-36, compared to the typical CL40-40-40 timing of DDR5, making this the ultimate performance choice for gamers, enthusiasts, and overclockers.

G.SKILL hasn’t confirmed the pricing or dates of availability for its DDR5-6600 CL36 Trident Z5 memory kits yet, but they will presumably come with higher premiums. The Trident Z5 modules feature a piano black top bar, while the Trident Z5 RGB modules feature a translucent RGB light bar. Metallic silver and matte black versions will be available.

  1. Will be interesting to see if the new HBM or DDR5 becomes the system memory of choice.

    I think, because of the interposer requirement, HBM will remain stuck in the domain of workstation-class GPUs and maybe some very specific SOC applications.
