G.SKILL Also Announces DDR4-4800 16GB (2x8GB) and DDR4-4500 32GB (4x8GB) Kits For Intel Z390 Motherboards

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, demonstrates two extreme DDR4 RGB specifications on the latest Intel Z390 chipset, including DDR4-4800MHz CL19 16GB (2x8GB) and DDR4-4500MHz CL19 32GB (4x8GB). Both kits are built with high performance Samsung DDR4 B-die ICs and provide the fastest XMP speed of each capacity configuration.
DDR4-4800MHz CL19-22-22-42 16GB(2x8GB)
Engineered for maximum overclocking performance, the DDR4-4800MHz memory kit is the fastest XMP speed available. The following screenshot shows the kit running stable on the latest ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI GENE motherboard based on the Intel Z390 chipset:

In addition to the extremely high-speed memory kit, G.SKILL also raises the frequency limit on 32GB (4x8GB) capacity configurations to a staggering DDR4-4500MHz, which results in an outstanding combination of extreme speed and high capacity. The screenshot below displays this new specification being torture-tested with the latest ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI Extreme motherboard:

Cute.... 4500/4800mhz for intel when from 2666mhz to 4200mhz the performance is in the 2-5% barely. Should put that on ryzen boards instead.

Uneducated people will be sheeps i guess.

It's ironic the platform that benefits the most from faster RAM is also the one with more trouble to have it work @ the rated speeds / timings (i'm talking 3800+ MHz).

The benefit is quite substantial ... if you manage to get it to work ...

Clearly this isnt for the average consumer, its targetted at people who wipe there asses with dollar bills or at ln2 overclockers that want to take dram quality out of the equasion when ocing, personally i bought a 1333mhz 9-9-9-24 2t ddr3 kit that runs happily at 2666 13-15-13-41 2t and i dont need anymore, however i noticed going from 2133 to 2666 that cb r15 netted a 30 point gain

If you're talking about gaming, it will probably be more like 1-2% in average, all within the margin of error. Higher memory speeds only helps if you have a memory bottleneck, which usually only happens for memory intensive workloads like encoding or server workloads.

But even worse, XMP speeds are not guaranteed, and even if you're able to get a decent speed, it will probably not work reliably over several years. Motherboard support is not the long-term problem, it's the CPU's memory controller.

Far too many gamers pay for really expensive memory kits. Most of them don't even configure the advertised speed, which means they will default to the SPD rating, which is usually 2133 MHz these days.

GPU bottleneck and AMD guys can’t afford it.
Edit: Ryzen has weak memory overclockability like Ryzen itself.

1000$ for the 32GB kit... LOL.
gSkill completely lost their minds! :shadedshu::shadedshu::shadedshu::wtf:
Looks like the club is just getting bigger with nGreedia and Intel also....
