G.Skill DDR4 Memory Reached 5000MHz with Intel Core i9-10900K

5000MHz DDR4 Memory Speed? That’s very fast indeed!

G.Skill recently showed how their DDR4 memory performs with the latest 10th Gen Intel Core processor and Intel Z490 chipset-based motherboards. They used a Core i9-10900K together with some flagship Z490 motherboards. In their tests, G.Skill was able to reach a “higher tier of extreme speed”; reaching up to DDR4-5000MHz with an 8GB and 16GB memory modules. They also tested a 32GB module with an Intel Core i7-10700K and it was able to reach a speed of DDR4-4400MHz. You can check out more details below.

G.Skill DDR4 Memory Achieves 5000MHz Memory Speeds

Massive Capacity, High-Speed 32GB Modules
Memory capacity has come a long way, where a 64GB kit used to require 8 memory modules. Now, 64GB is achievable with two high-density 32GB modules, and G.SKILL shows that a massive capacity 32GBx2 kit is capable of an incredible DDR4-4400 with CL19-26-26-46 timings. Stress tested on the latest Z490 platform and 10th Gen Intel Core processors, see below for screenshots of the memory kit running on the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII FORMULA motherboard with an Intel® Core™ i7-10700K processor and the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII APEX with an Intel® Core™ i9-10900K processor.

The DDR4-4400 16GBx2 Low-Latency CL17 Challenge
Pushing the extreme limits of low latency at high frequency speed, G.SKILL validates a 16GBx2 kit at DDR4-4400 with an extremely low latency of CL17-18-18-38 timings on the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII EXTREME motherboard and an Intel® Core™ i9-10900K processor. See the screenshot of this low-latency spectacle below:

Breaching DDR4-5000 Across the Board
DDR4-5000 is a major memory frequency milestone, and on the latest Intel Z490 chipset platform, G.SKILL has successfully reached this DDR4-5000 CL19 landmark achievement with 8GBx2 capacity on motherboards from multiple vendors, including the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII APEX, ASRock Z490 AQUA, and MSI MEG Z490 GODLIKE motherboards running with Intel® Core™ i9-10900K and i9-10900KF processors. See below for the stress test screenshots on these systems:

Raising the bar of running DDR4-5000 to the next capacity level, the screenshot below shows a kit of DDR4-5000 CL19-26-26-46 16GBx2 stress testing with an Intel® Core™ i9-10900K.

Note: Although G.Skill included a photo of the Trident Z Royal in their press release, they didn’t mention what was the specific series of memory kit they used. They did mention the capacity, speed and timing; but it is unclear what specific DDR4 memory series was used in their tests. G.Skill has several memory series; namely: Ripjaws, Trident Z RGB, Trident Z Neo and Trident Z Royal. I can only assume that G.Skill used their Trident Z Royal since it is their top of the line memory series.

Pricing and Availability

The G.Skill Trident Z Royal Gold and Silver DDR4 memory kits are now available. It is available from 16GB (8GBx2GB) up to 256GB (32GBx8) memory kit; and speeds from 2666MHz up to 4800MHz. Tested Latency also varies from one kit to another, and G.Skill has kits with CL from 14-14-14-34 to 19-20-20-40.
