What you need to know
- G.SKILL announced several low-latency DDR4 memory kits with high capacities.
- The new memory kits are DDR4-3600 CL14-15-15-35.
- The kits will be available starting in Q4 2020.
G.SKILL announced new DDR4 memory kits that are both low-latency and high-capacity. The new kits are DDR4-3600 CL14-15-15-35 and come in either 64GB or 32GB configurations. New kits with the CL14 specs are available from the Trident Z Neo, Trident Z Royal, Trident Z RGB, and Ripjaws V series. The new memory kits should be available in the fourth quarter of 2020.
That long CL number, CL14-15-15-35, refers to the CAS latency of the memory kits. CAS latency indicates how quickly a RAM module can access specific data. Specifically, CAS latency is measured in clock cycles, so these new memory kits from G.SKILL can complete a specific test used for measurement within 14 clock cycles.
CAS latency is different from data transfer speeds. When you purchase a RAM module for high-end systems, it's important to check its transfer speed and its CAS latency to ensure the best performance.
Jargon aside, the new memory kits from G.SKILL are fast, have low latency, and have large capacities. Their latency is especially low for DDR4 memory kits.
The G.SKILL Trident Z Royal is already among the best DDR4 RAM for your PC, and this improved spec makes it and other cards kits from G.SKILL even better.

The project is codenamed 'Latte' and I'm told it could show up as soon as next year.
