G.SKILL Announces New Ultra Low-Latency DDR5-6600 CL34 Memory Kit

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is pleased to announce the launch of an ultra-low latency, high-speed DDR5-6600 CL34 32 GB (2x 16 GB) memory kit under the Trident Z5 RGB series DDR5 memory, for the latest 12th Gen Intel Core desktop processors and Intel Z690 chipset motherboards.

Fully committed to develop extreme performance overclocking memory kits, G.SKILL is releasing a new ultra-low latency, high-speed DDR5-6600 CL34-40-40-105 memory kit in 32 GB (2x16GB) kit capacity. The screenshot below shows this memory kit validated with the Intel Core i7-12700K processor and ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Hero motherboard.
The DDR5-6600 CL34 32 GB (2x16 GB) memory kits under the Trident Z5 RGB series is expected to be available in May 2022 via G.SKILL worldwide distribution partners.

6600mhz CL 30-30-30-75 is ultra low latency, that's not ultra low, not even close.

Edit : and we don't have RAM voltage.

Im running 6800 cl 30 39 39 28 1T at 1.6v with gskill 6400c32 kit. Gskill bin is one of the greatest.

Ya'd think there might be reference numbers to compare with.

We're getting there.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but absolute CAS latency is basically the same as DDR4 of half the clock and half the CAS latency, right?

So in this case, 6600 CL34 has the same latency as DDR4-3300 CL17 - which is shit by DDR4 standards but not as terrible as the DDR5's launch speeds of 4800 CL42.

Memory subsystems are horrendously complicated these days, so the Absolute Timing Latency is not the biggest deal with two extra "lanes" to mask the latency with - alongside 50-60% (will be higher in the future) extra bandwidth to offset the halving of the data chunks.

There's a reason you don't see massive performance degradation jumping from DDR4 to DDR5 in latency-sensitive computations - right now I just don't find DDR5 worthwhile due to immature memory chips and controllers, on top of a high price.

There was a massive jump from DDR4 Micron 4 Gbit Rev A, Hynix AFR & friends, vs. modern DDR4 IC's (which easily go up to 4400-5000 MT/s) and 8 Gbit Sammy B being an outlier in MAXX performance.

I suppose you don't realize that in every new RAM generation the latency numbers are almost doubled. So DDR5-6600 CL34 is pretty damn fine when thinking that DDR5 has been in the (consumer) market for about only six months.

I didn't say that it wasn't pretty damn fine, it's Gskill after all, it's just NOT ultra low latency.

Ah okay, my bad. Well, I guess that it's just marketing.

Just another Hynix kit.

I'll be interested when someone makes a kit of CL of 20 or lower.

Hmmm.... where are those 6000+ <CL36 64GB dual kits ??? Why no 2x32GB with acceptable speeds and latencies? Why the only decent thing is 64GB / 32x2 5600 CL36 ?

You know that DDR5 has different specs and latencies that translate to completely different bandwidths, right ?

Hi,
6600c33 would sound a little better.

So you'll be sticking with DDR4 then.

I miss the DDR2 3/3/3/9 days.

Never had a low latency kit like that. Just the basic 5-5-5-15 stuff at best.

When did we ever consider ddr4 CL17 low lantency, never-mind ultra-low?

You were implying that when you interjected after gungnar said the kit wasn't even close with "every generation latency doubles." The reverse must also be true.
