I knew it was only a matter of time until faster DDR5 memory kits became available. Just like when DDR4 memory was first released, we didn’t see any DDR4-4000MHz initially. Most kits were just DDR4-3000. G.Skill recently released an “extreme speed” memory kit with a memory speed of 8000MHz – meet the G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-8000 memory kit. It was only a few weeks ago when DDR5-7600MHz kits were the fastest. At this rate, it’s only a matter of time until we see DDR5-10000MHz. Anyway, G.Skill’s latest and fastest memory kit is now available. You can check out the official news release below for more details.
