We've already taken a look at the update to the Ripjaws line-up, but G.Skill's product portfolio has seen other updates, including the Trident line-up. Now carrying the "Z" suffix, the new Trident Z sticks from G.Skill are a huge departure from past designs, a true showcase of the design and innovation G.Skill is known for.
DDR4 has been met with mostly negative reactions. Personally, I don't fully understand the complaints as most are about pricing and performance. Meanwhile, there are those who will quickly tell you that system DRAM speeds are not that important for daily tasks, and for the most part, they'd be right. Yet if you are going to push the rest of your system, memory needs to be pushed too, and the true benefits of DDR4 performance start to emerge once you push those high clockspeeds.
When you build a highly clocked computer with the intent of installing multiple video cards and/or overclocking, there are many things to consider. First, there's making sure you have enough power from your power supply, and then there is cooling for your gear, from the case down to individual coolers that might include watercooling. There's drive space to consider, and you'd want to buy a case that gives you absolute silence or shows off your system you put all that time into assembling. G.Skill's Trident Z lineup is all about giving you what you want: a fantastic look and performance that matches everything else, all at a great price.
