What you need to know
- Intel unveiled new 12th Gen Alder Lake processors.
- ASUS revealed its Z690 series motherboards that complement the Intel CPUs.
- Now, G.Skill has announced its Trident Z5 memory kit, designed with ASUS' Z690 series and Intel's 12th Gen offerings in mind.
If you were itching for an excuse to do a blanket reset of your rig, there's a trio of big October 27, 2021, announcements that should satisfy that exact need. G.Skill's new Trident Z5 memory kit comes with the new 12th Gen Intel CPUs and ASUS' Z690 motherboards in mind, all of which are harmoniously built to work well with each other.
As for why you may want G.Skill's Trident Z5 DDR5-6800 CL38 2x16GB memory kit, the company has a simple explanation: "Thus far, this is the world's fastest DDR5 memory kit to reach such a high frequency speed and raise DDR5-enabled system performance to new heights."
You don't have to take G.Skill's word for it, either. The company has backed up its claim with clock speeds.
You'll also have the ability to switch performance profiles, should you want to push things to the extreme with the click of a button.
An exact release date and pricing have yet to be announced, so stay posted for those.

It's still DDR4's world and we're just living in it, but if you can live without the rush of DDR5 and the world's fastest memory kit for a while longer, then there are plenty of affordable options worth considering in the meantime. And G.Skill's Trident Z is on that roundup, if you dig the brand.
