Memory comes in many speeds and capacities, and usually it isn't very easy to marry the two, even when costs aren't a concern. G.Skill is one of those who can boast of achieving records though.
The company has just revealed the newest addition to the Trident X line, one that just happens to be the fastest 32 GB kit ever made.
The company even has the benchmark test results to prove its declaration of supremacy, but we'll get to that soon.
First, we may as well give a lowdown of the general specifications of the memory product.
The 32 GB kit is made of four 8 GB modules, all of them running at 2,800 MHz clock speeds and latency of CL11.
The part number of the 32 GB Trident X is F3-2800C11Q-32GTXD. The company has yet to add it to its list
, but it should do that soon.
“Being the first to introduce such large capacity memory kit running at an incredible speed of 2800MHz, G.SKILL continues to impress power users/professional overclockers by offering the best memory solution with highest quality,” G.Skill said in its press release.
Overclockers will have probably guessed by now that the memory maker was thinking of Intel's Z77 chipset and Ivy Bridge CPUs when it made this product.
Indeed, even the benchmark test was made on an Ivy Bridge-ready motherboard running the Core i7-3770K
quad-core CPU at 3.5 GHz (8 core with HT).
Enthusiasts can rest assured that, if they so wish, they will be able to push the RAM even above the 2,800 MHz standard setting.
Sadly, G.Skill did not say what price it expected prospective buyers to pay in exchange for the Trident X 32 GB, nor did it provide an ETA (estimated time of arrival) for its shipments. Most likely, listings will show up in a matter of days, if they haven't already.
