Posted by at 11:01 am on October 5, 2017

Intel’s 8th Gen (Coffee Lake) processorsare now out for sale, and G.Skill has improved specs for its Trident line of DDR4 memory to match the new CPUs. The company upped the performance of its Trident Z RGB products and  revealed new DDR4-4200 memory.

G.Skill’s Trident Z RGB  modules sport four LEDs that can glow with various colors and some of the effects (Color cycle, Wave, Music, etc.)  on top of all RGB is a rock solid memory that performs well.

G.Skill said in a press release that this new Trident Z kit is the “king of DDR4 frequency” and made for “pure performance seekers.” There are no LEDs, RGB or otherwise, to be found. Instead, you’ll simply get 16GB (2 x 8GB) of DDR4-4600 memory with CL-19-25-25-45 timings.

G.Skill didn’t disclose much than the screenshot below show of validation tests with an Asus ROG Maximus X Apex motherboard and Intel Core i5-8600K processor. We can’t vouch for these numbers.


G.Skill’s all announced a middle of the pack memory kit that’s supposed to sit in between the Trident Z RGB and Trident Z in terms of performance.  The kit is called the DDR4-4200 MHz 32GB (4 x 8GB).  The marketing team must of been out for coffee when it came time to name the kit.

The only missing piece of information is the clock timing, which is CL-19-21-21-41. G.Skill shared a screenshot of the product’s validation tests, this time run on an Asus ROG Maximus X Formula motherboard and Intel Core i5-8600K processor:
