With memory prices continuing to plummet, now is a great time to be looking for memory upgrades. Winter hardware releases are in full swing, there is competition from both Intel and AMD, and the Red brand has thoroughly fixed the memory issues of generations past. No longer do users have to worry about memory compatibility or shopping for expensive AMD-branded kits. With 3200 MHz natively supported on the new Ryzen platform, options for enthusiasts have never been more open.
G.SKILL has made quite a name for itself in hardware enthusiast circles. The brands reputation for quality premium memory products is hardly a secret, and their Trident Z series is often considered the gold standard for what a good DDR4 kit should be. It should be no surprise to anyone that G.SKILL has prepared a new edition of this award winning memory design specifically to cater to new AMD adopters. The Trident Z Neo features the same fan-favorite profile with a new bold two-tone color scheme, and specifications aimed squarely at maximizing Ryzen 3000 performance.
The G.SKILL Trident Z Neo kit I have for testing today is specced at 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) 3600 MHz with 16-16-16-36 timings at 1.35 V, which many consider to be the ideal Ryzen spec. With twice the benchmarks to go through, let's not waste any more time! How will the G.SKILL Trident Z Neo perform?
|Tested Capacity:||16 GB (8 GB x2)|
