G.Skill has announced two new additions to their already impressive stable of memory kits with the new DDR4-4266 64 GB (8×8 GB) and DDR4-4000 128 GB (8×16 GB) set designed for the latest Intel Core X-series processors using X299 based motherboards. G.Skill says the kits are the highest speed available at such a capacity (fastest in the World they say!) and will be available in 2019 Q1.
Both kits will use Samsung B-die ICs under the hood and were validated using an ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe II motherboard with the faster kit tested behind an Intel Core i9-9920X while the higher capacity kit used an i7-9800X. The two sets of memory support Intel XMP 2.0 for one-touch setting… though something tells me some tweaking will need to happen for this capacity and speed!
The DDR4-4000 128 GB set uses CL19-19-19-39 timings and 1.3V and will join the G.Skill Trident Z RGB family. The 64 GB DDR4-4266 SKU on the other hand, comes in the G.Skill classic Trident Z heat spreader with the same timings mentioned above, but uses 1.45V. Pricing was not mentioned but you can bet your last dollar these will not be cheap. Not only is the capacity high, but the speeds for the capacities will certainly fetch a premium.
