G.Skills Unveils The New Trident Z 32GB DDR4 Memory Module
In today's PC realm, 16GB of RAM is sufficient enough to get you through any PC related tasks. Anything over that capacity is considered to be overkill. But we're living in an age where some applications demand that you exceed the standard capacity in both RAM and storage drives. With that said, G.Skill is introducing a handful of new high capacity and performing DDR4 memory kits that consist of 32GB dual-modules, offering up to an astounding 256GB.
Whether or not you need that much memory is subject to debate. It certainly would make a conversational piece when the topic entails who’s PC is the best on the block, yours or mines. For gaming enthusiasts, 256GB is a bit excessive. Running the most resource taxing gaming titles requires just 16GB of RAM. But the content creators who need extreme high-end hardware, or workstations that run multiple virtual machines, 256GB RAM would be beneficial.
The main target of G.Skill is PC builders who plan on constructing a high performance system. Anyway, let's examine this memory kit in depth.
G.Skill is presenting two different memory modules under the same product line---Trident Z Royal and Trident Z Neo. Now, for Ultra performance, the company highly recommend it’s 256GB (8x32GB) Trident Z Royal DDR4-3200 memory be installed on an ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore X299 motherboard paired along with an Intel Core i9-9820X. As well as the 128GB ( 4x32GB) kit of Trident Z Royal DDR4-4000 memory.
With AMD builds, G.Skill are recommending its 128GB (4x32GB) Trident Z Neo DDR4-3600 and 64GB (2x32GB) Trident Z Nero DDR4-3800 memory kits be installed on an MSI MEG X570 Godlike motherboard, paired with a Ryzen 9 3900X processor.
G.Skill is offering its 32GB modules in several different kits that range from DDR4-2666 to DDR4-4000. As you can see in the image above the timing and voltage vary per kit. G.Skill state that the 256GB kits max out at DDR4-3200.
