When it comes to pushing the limits of DDR4 memory kits, G.Skill is unparalleled.

The Taiwanese manufacturer is again affirming its position as the vaunted leader in DDR4 technology after launching new products. Recently, G.Skill announced that it is releasing DDR4-4000 memory kits with “extremely low latency,”

Reportedly, the company used the B-die ICs from Samsung to achieve CL15 CAS latency. The technology will be showcased in the 32GB Trident Z and Trident Z Royal kits. When you go full bore, you can hit timings of 15-16-16-36 and 4,000MHz. Here is a brief explanation of how memories work.

When G.Skill ran the test, the company paired a Meg Z390 Ace with an Intel i7-9700 chip. Before the new kits, the best CAS latency they achieved was CL17.

G.Skill reported that an AMD Ryzen 9 and DDR4-3200 C14 kit could hit 50GB/s on memory read bandwidth. The new DDR4-4000 low latency kits can hit 61GB per second on read bandwidth. The number can increase up to 65GB/s when you do a few tweaks. Also, it can reach 58GB/s for memory write.

However, there’s not much difference between 50GB/s and 61GB/s if they have the same speed and capacity. It is more of a showcase of how G.Skill is miles ahead in the memory kit game.

Typically, gamers put more stock on speed and capacity instead of latency. However, G.Skill managed to do the impossible by combining low latency, speed, and capacity with the new kits.

If you want to improve your gaming experience, rigging your machine with high RAM capacities will do the trick. It is now possible considering that the prices for DDR4 kits now have dipped significantly.

At the very least, you should install 32GB of RAM, especially if you have an older CPU and GPU. Of course, it would be better if you upgrade your graphics and CPU, as well. But if you severely lack resources, upgrading your RAM is a good start.

If you are interested in the G.Skill extremely low latency memory kit, you have to wait a little more. The memory kits are not available yet, but they will be soon. The company announced that they would hit the shelves in the fourth quarter of 2019. However, G.Skill has not announced any prices yet for the Trident Z and Trident Z Royal.
