The first consumer platform to support DDR4 memory was Intel’s Skylake Z170 family & the respective Z170 motherboards. The memory initially came with native speeds of 2133 MHz but since then, AMD and Intel, have modified their platforms to not only support faster native clock speeds but also allow for higher clocked DIMMs to be supported by XMP profiles that have been tuned specifically by motherboard manufacturers to support a large range of memory kits with clock speeds beyond the native design.
With the launch of Intel’s 10th Generation Desktop CPUs, we got to see the brand new Comet Lake-S Z490 platform which features improved I/O and support for fast DDR4 memory up to speeds of 5000 MHz. Today, I will be taking a look at two memory kits that are specifically designed for the Z490 platform and see how raw memory speeds and tightly tuned timings affect the Z490 platform as a whole.
G.Skill Trident Z Royal Series 16 GB DDR4 Memory Kit Specifications
G.Skill is one of the top memory manufacturers known to gamers and enthusiasts in the PC industry. The company has been specializing in the memory industry for several years and their memory kits are very popular among the masses. There are memory lines from G.Skill that have been the eye-catcher since the company was formed, Trident and Ripjaws.
Both of these series have now become the choice of enthusiasts and overclockers as they come with an impressive specifications list and some of the best design schemes on the market. CES 2018 saw G.Skill presenting their new Trident Z Royal RGB memory, a DDR4 memory kit that stays loyal to the Trident Z design but offers a royal touch to it. The memory kit sure seemed spectacular and since then, G.Skill has offered Royal series kits with speeds of up to DDR4-4800 which are truly impressive.
