On paper at least, the new G.Skill Trident Z5 and Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 combinations are important to the first wave of consumer DDR5 memory. Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but most manufacturers are already selling 32GB DDR5 kits for $350, so don't expect them to be cheaper.
Yesterday, Jill released its DDR5-5600 memory families in anticipation of the next series of Intel Alder Lake processors. Not to mention that Taiwanese company G.Skill also releases DDR5 memory modules as a combination of RGB Trident Z5 and Trident Z5.
The new memory modules are designed to work with both Intel and the Alder Lake platform as well as AMD's Zen 4, which is expected to arrive in 2022. The leak so far represents a powerful memory controller in 12th generation processors Intel which allows enthusiasts to pull DDR5 memory higher than the best DDR4 modules.
The new Trident Z5 G.Skill skill set is available in DDR5-5600, DDR5-6000 and DDR5-6400 with CL36 timings. But most importantly, the company has equipped the new units with Samsung's handcrafted DDR5 chipset to ensure high performance and reliability. G.Skill also provides a snapshot of the RunMemtestPro 4.1 and CPU-Z validation test showing DDR5-6400 Trident Z5 units connected to the Alder Lake CPU running in a 4-channel, memory controller configuration in the Gear. Mode 2.
If you're looking to upgrade to the Alder Lake platform and want to pair it with Trident Z5 G.Skills memory sets, the company says you can finally do it. No pricing information is available next month, but all Trident Z5 and Trident Z5 RGM memory packages will be available in a 32GB dual-channel configuration.
