【Market View】G.Skill Unveils Trident Z Royal Hexa-Channel 192 GB DDR4-4000 Kit for Xeon W-3175X

Published Jan.31 2019,02:41 AM (GMT+8)

G.Skill has released the industry’s first hexa-channel DDR4 memory kits designed specifically for Intel’s 28-core Xeon W-3175X processor for extreme workstations. The top-of-the-range kit features a 192 GB capacity and operates at 4000 MT/s data transfer rate, thus combining extreme performance and capacity. To make it even more attractive, the modules use G.Skill’s ‘blingy’ Trident Z Royal heat spreaders.

As usual, G.Skill plans to offer a number of Trident Z Royal hexa-channel memory kits for extreme workstations powered by Intel’s Xeon W-3175X featuring capacities ranging from 48 GB to 192 GB and rated for DDR4-3200 CL14/CL16, DDR4-3600 CL17, and DDR4-4000 CL17 at 1.35 V operation. All the modules are based on Samsung’s 8 Gb B-die DRAM devices that are known for their high overclocking potential. Like the rest enthusiast-class memory modules on the market today, the Trident Z Royal feature XMP 2.0 SPD profiles for one-click setup.

Depending on their speed bins, G.Skill’s hexa-channel Trident Z Royal DDR4 kits will offer a peak memory bandwidth of 153 GB/s, 172.8 GB/s, or 192 GB/s. Keeping in mind that the DRAM sets are designed for an unlocked 28-core CPU that operates at 3.1 – 4.5 GHz, an extreme memory sub-system is a must have feature in a bid to ensure maximum performance.

Apart from performance, a distinctive feature of G.Skill’s hexa-channel DDR4 kits is the company’s gold or silver Trident Z Royal heat spreaders with a unique addressable RGB lighting. Usage of the premium DRAM cooling systems naturally make Intel Xeon W-3175X-based systems look very luxurious.

G.Skill’s hexa-channel Trident Z Royal DDR4 kits will hit the market in the near future. Their MSRPs are unknown, but expect them to be on par with pricing of Intel’s Xeon W-3175X processor and ASUS’ ROG Dominus Extreme motherboard.
