G.Skill has introduced its new high-end Trident Z Neo memory kits for systems based on AMD’s latest Ryzen 3000 processors. According to G.Skill, its Trident Z Neo DDR4-3800 CL14 kits reach up to 58 GB/s in measured memory bandwidth.
AMD says — and many third-party observers confirm — that its Ryzen 3000 CPUs based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture show the highest memory subsystem performance when frequencies of Infinity Fabric (fClk), memory controller (uClk), and DRAM (mClk) are equal (i.e., the fClk to mClk ratio is set at 1:1). However, far not all Ryzen processors can support high fClk clocks, so using extremely fast DDR4 memory modules (e.g., DDR4-4000+) may be detrimental in many cases. G.Skill says that its Trident Z Neo DDR4-3800 kit, which runs at CL14-16-16-36 timings at a toasty 1.5 V, offers an optimal combination of high clocks, low latency, and fClk to mClk ratio of 1:1 for AMD’s latest CPUs.
