G.SKILL Achieves Dual-Channel DDR4-5000 MHz Memory Speed on Air-Cooling

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is excited to announce the achievement of an unprecedented DDR4-5000 MHz memory in dual-channels. This major breakthrough is the world's first instance of two DDR4 RGB memory modules breaking the DDR4-5000 MHz barrier on just air cooling, when considering that this world-record class speed was only achievable under extreme liquid nitrogen cooling just two years ago. This massive technological feat is achieved with the high performance Samsung DDR4 B-die ICs, and running on the MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and the Intel Core i7-8700K processor.
World's First Dual-Channel DDR4-5000MHz Achieved on Air-Cooling
This in-development memory speed marks the first time in history that a pair of air-cooled RGB memory achieving the legendary speed of DDR4-5000MHz. While DDR4-5000MHz memory kits aren't yet ready to hit retail stores, G.SKILL is taking major leaps in developing much faster memory speeds and demonstrating the brand's unwavering dedication to continually push DDR4 memory performance into the absolute extremes.

"Previously, the 5GHz memory speed is only achievable in extreme overclocking and in single-channel. We're excited to share that we've been able to achieve the 5GHz memory speed in not only air-cooling conditions, but also in dual-channels. This is a major milestone for us," says Tequila Huang, Corporate Vice President, G.SKILL International. "We will make every effort to bring this specification onto the consumer market, and bring the experience of extreme performance to worldwide users."

So this will cost what? A kidney and some bone marrow with current memory pricing?

This should scale very well with Zen architecture.

Was it stable
On the 1 in a 100 8700K and 1 in 10 mobo they tested with. On everything else it probably won't even post.

4600 kit costs 383€/471$ so a 4700 kit that is not yet available should cost around 400€/500$ and a hypothethical DDR4-5000 kit perhaps 500€/600$
Still cheaper than graphics cards.
