G.Skill Releases AMD Ryzen-optimized Trident Z RGB DDR4 Memory

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, announces a new lineup of Trident Z RGB DDR4 memory kits with enhanced compatibility on the latest AMD platforms. Specifically designed for AMD Ryzen and Ryzen Threadripper platforms, now there are vibrant options up to the popular DDR4-3200MHz CL14 or the massive 128GB (8x16GB) kits at up to 2933MHz. For a full range of memory kit capacity options, the new Trident Z RGB memory kit models are available at DDR4-2400MHz in 2-, 4-, and 8-module kit configurations with 8GB and 16GB modules, which allows for 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB memory kits for your AMD system.

AMD currently has two platform offerings, where Ryzen supports dual-channel with 2 or 4 memory modules and Threadripper supports quad-channel memory with 4 or 8 memory modules. To give a boost in memory performance to AMD number-crunching workstations and high-end graphic rendering systems, G.SKILL offers several selections for each AMD platform, including memory speeds of up to DDR4-2933MHz or ultra-high capacity at 128GB (8x16GB).
For details on specifications and compatibility support of the new Trident Z RGB kits, please refer to the following table:

OC Profile Support & Availability
These new Trident Z RGB models support OC profile support on compatible motherboards, just simply enable the OC profile in BIOS to achieve these high performance DDR4 memory speeds. These new models are scheduled for release via G.SKILL authorized distribution partners in October 2017.

Since day 1 Trident Z RGB had issues, mostly software issues. I'm guessing this comes in to solve it

Also a cash in on users that won't search through all available memory brands and types to verify which modules are proven to work well/flawless. The rumor mills regarding problematic RYZEN/Threadripper setups in conjunction with certain RAM setups still float around.

Just my guess...

Killer ram for speed but for now, stay away from their RGB sticks. Major software issues / corrupted SPD profiles, EARLY beta software that has not seen an update since what... June? With no response from GSkill. Unless you are purchasing an asus board specifically... Just skip the ugly headache on their RGB and go with the non RGB sticks. I know - I own a set.

(adding in, their 3200 CL14 sticks are samsung B-die). As I mentioned, they have the speed part down - they rock. My 1700 setup cruises at XMP speeds all day long @ 3200 / 14 14 14 34 @ just 1.35V.

I don't know why, but Taiwan company names piss me off. Same with their slogans ("In Search of Incredible"... wtf).

Sad, since it's some of the highest rated RAM, isn't it?

RGB issues are also present in Intel based systems. Sonething about the RGB uses the bus.

I have been using some old (bought 1-2 years ago) TridentZ 3200 C14,
I could run quad channel with 4 of them with XMP profile on Threadripper without a problem.

They were already pretty compatible, so the new ones may just be some subtiming tuned version.

They used to come with them cool stickers, over a decade ago. Then they switched to that nasty, red one that said "Go Beyond Limit!" on top... LOL!!!

On top of the rather buggy software when integrating with ASUS Aura Sync, it's another way for them to rip the wallets from AMD builders. Solution?? Avoid these bug-ridden sticks & go for Corsair's Vengeance RGB sticks. Those kits are way more stable & cheaper than G-Skill's offerings.

At some point they even "corrected" it to read "go beyond limits!" lol.
