It’s always great when companies break records in technology, and G.Skill here has just unveiled their G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-4700MHz Kit that’s currently the world’s fastest DDR4 Memory. Last year in September, they launched a 16GB DDR4 4600MHz kit which was also the fastest RAM around at that time. Less than a week later Corsair also introduced their DDR4-4600MHz Memory, so it is expected that other brands catch up with G.Skill with this new, extremely fast 4700MHz DDR4 Memory.
What’s the use of such fast memory?
There’s not much practical use for a memory modules being this fast, but extreme overclockers who just want to break performance records and have bragging rights will love this. These type of Memory sticks are all about performance, although there’s not much difference with 100MHz more memory clock speed. But it does make G.Skill the only supplier of the world’s fastest RAM, and also the first one to do so with RGB Lighting. Since the past year, G.Skill’s team has maintained their ability to break records for high-performance memory sticks.
