G.SKILL Announces New Specifications for AMD Ryzen 2000 Series Processors

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is excited to announce the release of new Trident Z RGB and Sniper X series specifications launching in conjunction with the release of the AMD Ryzen 2000 series processors and the X470 platform. Kit specifications starting from DDR4-3200MHz CL16-18-18-38 16GB (2x8GB) to DDR4-3600MHz 18-22-22-42 16GB (2x8GB), these new specifications push the boundaries of AMD system performance to the next level.

Armed with the latest IMC on the new 2nd generation AMD Ryzen processors, G.SKILL aims to bring users ultra-fast high performance memory kits to help increase overall system performance with the new X470 systems. Trident Z RGB, with model numbers ending with TZRX, and Sniper X memory series now introduce several new AMD X470-specific memory specifications. Please see below for a complete list of the new specifications.

That 3400MHz 16-16-16-36 kit seems to be the best option out of those.

Just goes to show that when RAM manufacturers concentrate on AMD platforms for DDR4 where most where optimised for Intel (obviously as AMD didnt have a DDR4 platform before Ryzen) we can start seeing similar high frequency kits being made available. There is still a way to go but it's not bad after 1 year and hopefully more manufacturers will continue to also optimise for AMD platforms and we can start seeing more higher rated kits available unlike when Ryzen first launched. AMD took the flak for being picky with memory when in fact they were all optimised for the Intel platform. Soon see 4000mhz AM4 RAM :toast:

The specs on the CL timings are nice, but what about secondary and tertiary timings? That's what makes or breaks compatibility / performance, in many cases.

XMP is mostly designed for Intel and will perform well on Intel systems, supposedly. If these kits are for RyZen, they better come with proper secondary and tertiary timings in their XMP profiles. That should be the case for all "for RyZen" memory kits, regardless of manufacturer.

Check out Gamers Nexus. Once again, they've obliterated everyone in testing (although they've had the CPUs for a while).

Don't be a fool... I bought 2 sets of Trident Z 2x16GB 3000s with CL14 Model F4-3000C14D-32GTZ to be exact. Bought them in March of 2017 (for only $439 combined) when I heard memory prices would be going up for my Ryzen 1700 build. Ever since the Agesa 1.0.0.6 bios updates I have been able to run all 4 for a total of 64 GB with its XMP profile of CL14-14-14-34-48 T1 with no issues on an Asrock X370 Fatal1ty Pro Gaming mobo. It could probably run higher with looser timings, but I don't see much benefit in that... I did try 3200 for a bit, but I didn't feel like playing with the memory timings after I had a couple of reboots with the CL14 timings @ 3200.

Moral of the story, don't pay more for "Specialty branded for your CPU" memory. It is just a gimmick to make you pay more.

Agree , those sniper modules could had been low profile ! Corsair LPX is the only option for many SFF builders .
