G.Skill Announces Extreme Low Latency DDR4-3600 CL14 64GB Memory Kit

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is delighted to announce extreme low-latency with high-capacity DDR4 memory kits at DDR4-3600 CL14-15-15-35 in 64 GB (16GBx4) and 32 GB (16GBx2) configurations under the Trident Z Neo, Trident Z Royal, Trident Z RGB, and Ripjaws V series. Once again, these extraordinary memory kits are manufactured using high-performance Samsung B-die ICs to achieve the low latency of CL14 at DDR4-3600.

At G.SKILL, we are always searching for the ultimate memory kit, tuned not only for speed, but also for efficiency. And to achieve high efficiency, this means lower latency timings. As the market demand for higher capacity increases, G.SKILL has risen to the challenge, and is introducing the DDR4-3600 CL14-15-15-35 64 GB (16 GB x4) memory kit specification, shown validated on the Intel-based ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII HERO (WI-FI) Z490 and MSI MEG Z490 GODLIKE motherboards, as well as the AMD-based ASUS PRIME X570-P motherboard.
Availability & XMP 2.0 Support
These extreme low latency performance memory specifications will support Intel XMP 2.0 for easy overclocking and will be available via G.SKILL worldwide distribution partners in Q4 2020.

I've said it before and I will say it again, I find it very very very annoying that all ram stick sellers don't put the full SPD spec table on the package as per Thaiphoon Burner AND the memory chip manf # so customer can pull that spec sheet also. That should be law IMHO.

If they want to put max speed then they should put in big letters *UP TO 3600, XMP PROFILE, ACTUAL SPEED MAY BE LOWER.

I've stopped really caring about B-Die long ago. Micron is where it's at right now especially as far as price is concerned. You can still get the Ballistix Elite 4000 for 100 bucks on Newegg, which will perform similarly to these at 3600 for less money.

Wasn't B-die discontinued a while ago?

Also, is it normal for RAM makers to publish promo images that essentially say "yes, our product runs at its rated speed without errors"? Isn't that kind of a given?

I will never give up my B die 3200 NEVER.. At least till DDR 5 comes out:)

They discontinued the old stock like the 2015 Trident-Z I'm using and moved on to different ICs, then came back with updated ones.

That would be redundant. There's no JEDEC spec for DDR4@3600, everybody knows that requires running the memory in overclock mode.

The thing is, once Ryzen 5000 is released, 3600 will most likely cease to be the sweet spot...

My dirt-cheap Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 3200C16 sticks hit 3800C16 @1.38V on the first try using 1usmus' calculator (B550 board, Renoir APU). Don't quite see the use for B-die given how cheap these are. But of course, if you already own a B-die set it's not like there's any reason to replace them :P

They actually put those dies that did some 5000 mt/s on almost all Ballistix memory now. You don't even have to get the Elite or MAX to get good results, the plain stuff or just the vanilla Ballistix 3600 will do great, since it's only a lower binned version of the same die. Comes with RGB too if you're into bling, lol.

I would say only as far as the price is concerned really. Too bad they can't really compete with good S8B in terms of raw performance.

How so? Elites are rocking in performance. Give me a pair of good Ballistix over Trident-Z any day, lower voltage too.

Just comparing performance by the numbers from some very good kits maxed out. You can do the same and will see that M8E/M16B are still tier 2 after S8B.

I don't know what you exactly mean by "maxed out", and I'm not taking your tier nonsense either. E-Die has proven itself, go figure how they perform. Unless you have a love of RAM literally saying Trident on it, I see no point in your post.

Considering I already have a 3800/14 TridentZ Neo kit, I don't see how this is extreme.

@X71200 I am not saying M8E/M16B are bad, just that they are not tier 1 in terms of performance. However since you don't seem to trust whatever I say, just look it up yourself. There are more than enough sources available in the web, that tested them against each other...

I'm not going to take anybody who puts stuff in "tiers" as a credible source. I don't have to look up on it as I have already done so months ago. In fact, I considered picking up those Ballistix Elite I talked about for myself. You seem to think they lack performance or something, but this is simply not true. More so, let's say your Samsung performs a very tiny bit better, if you have to spend twice the price to get a few subtimings better, you need to consider what you're spending your money into. A better CPU at that point will crush your Samsung die RAM. Maybe it's OK if you like seeing pointy scores in benchmarks. I do too, from time to time when I update my drivers. Don't go around spreading bad suggestions to people.

Why is that? I ask because I am switching to Ryzen this gen and 3600 is what I'm currently looking at.

That's fine. But give us some sweet 4000 mhz cl15 memory for zen 3. As it seems 4 ghz will be sweet spot for zen 3.

IF improvements. It will be able to run higher than 1800MHz 1:1.

He means Infinity Fabric improvements by the way, not "if" any improvements. The internal clock of the Zen setup, where it's suggested to have a 1:1 ratio between the RAM frequency and the IF.

For 3600 ok, but I would have to disagree for other speeds. JEDEC goes up to 3200, now if you go buy a 3200 kit, id be willing to bet it's an XMP profile speed and not a std SPD profile. Even the 3200 kit I have, that is the only speed advertised, put it in and 2133 and 2133 is the fastest SPD in there, and one XMP profile at 3200. If you are doing ram upgrades or no OC etc.etc. this is where it is relevant and important. I have even seen 2400 and 2666 kits that are 2133 and the higher speeds are XMP profiles.

My guess is the sweet spot will around 3800. The slide from AMD said "DDR4-4000 is to Zen 3 as DDR4-3800 was to Zen 2 - good luck!". Like we have now where not everybody's IMC can handle DDR4-3800 (3600 has become the sweet spot because the IF is, if I'm understanding correctly, essentially guaranteed to be able to run at 1800, but anything beyond that - DDR4-3800 and 1900 FCLK is luck of the draw), I'm predicting DDR4-4000 and 2000 FCLK to be hittable if you get lucky with silicon lottery, your motherboard is good at memory OCing, you have a solid memory kit, etc. If everybody's CPU could handle 1900 FCLK, 3600 wouldn't be the current sweet spot, it'd be 3800.

The first Zen 2 chips had sweet spot at 3600 Mhz, but if i remember correct Zen 2 XT models whas capable of 3800 MHz. So i do believe Zen 3 can handle 4 GHz memory.

Wasn't that just because they were guaranteed better bins though? You pay extra for that. The sweet spot is going to be at the lowest FCLK that all CPUs can hit, not just the cherry-picked more expensive bins. Idk, I'm just speculating of course. I think either could be possible but am leaning towards it being 3800 instead of 4000 - maybe 70/30 in terms of confidence level
