High price tag and dizzying speeds as Gskill takes DDR5 to 8,000 MHz

The development of memory speeds that can be achieved with the latest standard DDR5 is moving forward rapidly. One of the major events in this regard is the launch of Intel’s Core 13000 series “Raptor Lake” with the accompanying Z790 chipset, which has enabled higher speeds than previously possible. This was recently demonstrated by, among others, the memory manufacturer Gskill, which in collaboration with Asus managed to achieve 8,000 MHz.

Now Gskill takes the next step and goes from demonstration to launch of memory kit which has been validated for the speed of 8,000 MHz. It is their Trident Z5 RGB series in black and silver, with 32 GB DDR5 divided into two modules. The memory supports XMP 3.0, and they timings which is on the menu is 38-48-48-128. To achieve the speeds, a reasonably high voltage of 1.45 volts is required.

Although the memories are validated for 8,000 MHz, it will not always necessarily work without problems, because such speeds also place high demands on both the processor and motherboard. At the time of writing, Gskill’s new product has only been validated with the overclocking-focused motherboard Asus ROG Maximus Z790 Apex and associated “Raptor Lake” processor.

Anyone who feels the urge for record-breaking memories probably won’t have to wait much longer, as the memories will be released in December in the United States. The products have an increased price tag of around USD 530, to say the least, which corresponds to around SEK 6,900 with VAT. It remains to be seen when the memories find their way onto the Swedish store shelves.
