G.Skill launches their Ryzen-oriented Trident Z Neo series of DDR4 memory DIMMs

3600MHz at CL14 timings, wow.

Still prefer the Royal line up. If I am gonna go RGB I may as well get the best looking one.

These are still nice looking though. The only difference I can see is it's no longer all black but now with a silver section. Probably prefer all black.

thing is i can get 32GB of 3200mhz cl 16 ram for 140 euro.
corsair, runs fine in my ryzen systems.

cheapest 3600mhz ram cost double that.


is the performance increase really worth 140euro?
i really doubt it.


would most people not be better off putting that money elsewhere?
(better GPU, better CPU etc).

I actually sent GSkill an email asking for something just like this last week although I mentioned 3200 with better timings as I noticed that RGB ram generally has rubbish timings, so I guess they must have heard similar things before and made these, well done GSkill well done!

1.4 volts? I thought 1.35 was the norm for daily use

1.35 is pretty standard for a lot of kits, but remember that 1.5V was common for DDR3 and 1.35 was only for low power kits in that era.

I guess that G.Skill needed the extra power to tighten those timings. I'm surprised by how tight they are for 3600MHz. The heatsinks on these are more than enough for the extra power.

Also, in a lot of memory profiles in certain BIOSes (like my CH7), higher speed RAM profiles will set the DRAM voltage to 1.4v.
