G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is launching Trident Z Royal series DDR4 RGB memory kits, featuring a patent-pending full-length crystalline light bar upon a polished heatspreader in gold or silver with stunning 8-zone RGB lighting. The patent of the crystalline design on PC components has been applied for across major countries. Available in high-speed specifications, the Trident Z Royal is first available from DDR4-3000MHz to DDR4-4600MHz at launch. With the perfect marriage of RGB lighting and speed, the Trident Z Royal is the ideal memory kit for any high-class system build.

Trident Z Royal is the latest addition to the Trident Z flagship family, featuring a crown jewel design. Meticulously crafted to display just the right amount of light refraction, the crystalline light bar scatters the RGB colors in a magnificent display of LED lighting. Complementing the patented high-class light bar design, polished aluminum heatspreaders of gold or silver colors cools the memory modules in the award-winning classic Trident Z tri-fin design. And to help maintain the pristine shine of the heatspreaders, each Trident Z Royal memory kit comes with a piece of microfiber cloth to let you wipe away fingerprints and dust.



Upgraded RGB Lighting
Inside the Trident Z Royal is the next generation RGB module designed with 8 individually controllable lighting zones, which allows for smoother color transitions and provides an even more stunning lighting experience for your build. To control this next generation RGB memory, a new set of lighting control software will be available for download from the official G.SKILL website.

Extreme High-Speed Specifications
Engineered on a newly designed custom PCB to accommodate the increased lighting zones, the Trident Z Royal is also built for high speed overclocking specifications, ranging from 16GB to 128GB kit capacities and up to DDR4-4600MHz memory speeds. For a list of specifications available at launch, please refer to the chart below:



XMP 2.0 Support & Availability
The new Trident Z Royal series memory kits are equipped with the latest Intel XMP 2.0 profiles for easy one-click memory overclocking, and will be available via G.SKILL worldwide distribution partners in December 2018.

I like the crystalline light bar but I don't like the gold finish on them. They look acceptable on silver. I would prefer black or grey brushed aluminium.

not with that shiny, smooth surface. You could always rough it up a bit with fine sandpaper, or use a de-glosser, and then prime & paint it, but that seems like a lot of work for a minor asthetic detail.......

Plus you would have to be EXTREMELY careful not to get any dust/debris/paint on any of the pcb's anywhere were power flows over, thru or along whatever path(s)...

good luck with that :D

You gotta be kidding me.

These are objects of bad taste and bad priorities.

Makes me lose a lot of respect for G.Skill.
