G.SKILL have gone from strength to strength within the enthusiast DRAM sector, particularly with their premium Trident Z RGB range, promising cherry picked ICs that offered overclocking prowess that was difficult to match. Now, with the launch of AMDs latest Ryzen processors, G.SKILL have been quick off the mark to make full use of their new and improved memory controller.
We looked at the Trident Z a couple of years back, and today we see G.SKILL breathe some new life into that with the Trident Z Neo, a kit designed specifically for the AMD X570 chipset. As youd expect from the Trident Z family, the Neo has been crafted with hand-screened ICs attached to a 10-layer PCB and has undergone extensive testing across a multitude of different motherboards to ensure the utmost reliability, stability and compatibility.
As is typical for G.SKILL, the Neo range is available in a wide variety of frequencies, starting at 2666MHz and moving all the way up to 4000MHz, capacities, with 8GB and 16GB modules making kits up to 64GB, and latency options as low as CL14 through CL18. Something for every budget, youd imagine. Today were going to look at the 3600MHz 16GTZNC kit, sporting timings of 16-19-19-39 @ 1.35v, available at £170 in the UK, $180 in the US and $320 in Australia.
Unlike the original Trident Z release, RGB support is now much more extensive, with ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync and ASRock Polychrome Sync, or if you prefer, G.SKILL offer their own utility for RGB lighting control across the multitude of diffused LEDs on the top light bar.
G.SKILL on the Trident Z Neo:
Engineered and optimized for full compatibility on the latest AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors on AMD X570 chipset motherboards, Trident Z Neo brings unparalleled memory performance and vibrant RGB lighting to any gaming PC or workstation with AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs and AMD X570 motherboards.
