This DDR5 memory kit has speeds of up to 8400 MT/s and will be available in a 48GB (2x24GB) configuration. Its impressive specs are designed to get the most out of PCs running 14th Gen Intel CPUs. You won't be able to order the Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-8400 until the end of October 2023, but you can check it out in more detail on G.SKILL's website.
The speeds of the new G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 memory kit are, quite frankly, overkill for many users. But they'll get the most out of a system with an Intel Core i7-14700K or an Intel Core i9-14900KF.
The G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 also looks nice, thanks to its matte white finish and RGB lighting. That lighting can sync with a variety of products and ecosystems, including Asus Aura, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light, and ASRock Polychrome Sync.
The new memory kits are overclockable, allowing you to hit higher speeds to match your system.
G.SKILL hasn't shared pricing for the new Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 at this time, but it did specify that the memory kits would be available by the end of October 2023.
