AMD EXPO Technology Support for AMD Socket AM5
Designed for DDR5 memory-enabled AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series desktop processors, the Trident Z5 Neo and Flare X5 series are pre-programmed with the latest AMD EXPO (EXtended Profiles for Overclocking) memory profiles, which allow users to easily overclock the memory kits1. By simply enabling the AMD EXPO profile in the BIOS with a compatible motherboard and processor, users can unleash overclocked memory speeds on AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors.
“We are thrilled to partner with G.SKILL to bring AMD EXPO technology to enthusiasts, gamers, and overclockers worldwide,” said David McAfee, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Client Channel Business Unit, AMD. “AMD EXPO technology gives users piece of mind when selecting memory, unlocking improved memory performance with the click of a button.”
Legacy of the Neo Flagship
Bearing the flagship Trident family name, the new Trident Z5 Neo and Trident Z5 Neo RGB series are purpose built for overclock performance on the latest platform with AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors. The heatspreader design retains the iconic powder-coated matte black and paired with a premium black brushed aluminum inset, which color-matches with a majority of motherboard color schemes. Staying true to the Neo design, CNC highlight strips along the flanks give the heatspreader design an additional metallic sheen.
Flare X5 – DDR5 for AM5
Available in a matte black finish, the Flare X5 series DDR5 memory is the successor of the Flare X series DDR4 memory. Built with hand-screened IC chips tested for quality and performance, the Flare X5 is designed and optimized for the new DDR5-enabled AM5 platform. Additionally, the 33mm low-profile height of the Flare X5 also makes this an excellent choice for compact builds or builds with large CPU coolers that don’t have clearance height for taller memory modules.
