G.SKILL Announces New DDR4 Specifications for Trident Z Series and Z270

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, announces new high-speed DDR4 memory specifications designed for the latest 7th Gen Intel Core processors and Z270 motherboards under the extreme performance Trident Z series.

With 16GB (8GBx2) and 32GB (8GBx4) kits becoming the mainstream memory capacities in PC systems, 8GB-based kits are in greater demand for higher performance than ever. Upon the launch of Intel's latest Kaby Lake platform, G.SKILL bumps up the maximum frequency speeds to a blistering DDR4-4266MHz at CL19-19-19-39 for 16GB (8GBx2) kits and DDR4-4133MHz CL19-21-21-41 for 32GB (8GBx4) kits.

The Fastest 16GB (8GBx2) Kit - DDR4-4266 CL19-19-19-39

Extremely high frequency memory kits often are achieved at the sacrifice of unsightly CL timings. Not anymore! With a more streamlined and efficient CL19-19-19-39 timing memory kit at 4266MHz, the limits have been increased under the latest 7th Gen Intel Core processor.

Check the image below for a test validation screenshot with the ASUS ROG Maximus IX Apex motherboard and Intel Core i7-7700K processor:
The Fastest 32GB (8GBx4) Kit - DDR4-4133 CL19-21-21-41

Those familiar with overclocking and high performance memory kits know that increased memory capacity also makes it difficult to raise the frequency speed. Built on decades of experience, G.SKILL is raising the limits of 8GBx4 kits to an unprecedented DDR4-4133MHz.

See below for a test validation screenshot for the DDR4-4133MHz 32GB kit on the ASUS ROG Maximus IX Formula motherboard and the Intel Core i5-7600K processor:
Kaby Lake Platform Launch Records: 8 World Records & 21 Global First Places
Upon the launch of the Kaby Lake platform are new overclocking and benchmark records, including a total of 8 world records and 21 global first place records achieved with the DDR4 Trident Z series memory and 7th Gen Intel Core processors! Check out the full list of records below.

What happen is you just combine 2 sets of DDR4-4266MHz at CL19-19-19-39? Isn't this faster than the whole kit of DDR4-4133MHz CL19-21-21-41 ??

Don`t think the IMC can handle 4 sticks at 4266MHz CL 19-19-19-39.

What happens is it won't run at that speed and timings with the increased density. So you would end up having to drop to the slower, looser spec anyway. Remember, this is at the bleeding edge of DDR4 speed and timings, and the IMC may be at or near it's limit for this 7th generation of Intel CPUs.

Thanks. Sorry, I am trying to understand.
So If I use 2 sticks for a total of 16GB the 4266MHz CL 19-19-19-39 works fine, but if I add 2 more sticks for 32GB, do I have to drop the speed and timings?

Or increase voltage
