G.Skill announced the DDR5-8400 CL40 48GB (24GB x2) set

In the quest for high-frequency DDR5 memory, G.Skill stands as one of the most ardent manufacturers. Their recent ventures into unconventional 24GB and 48GB DDR5 memory modules, which don’t follow the standard powers-of-two increments, attest to this zeal. Earlier, they unveiled the DDR5-8200 CL40 48GB (24GB x2) kit, part of the Trident Z5 RGB Phantom Trident series. With the debut of Intel’s 14th generation Core desktop processors, G.Skill announced the DDR5-8400 CL40 48GB (24GB x2) set, primed to harness the unparalleled performance of these new processors.

Compared to its predecessors, Intel’s 14th-generation Core desktop processors offer more robust support for high-frequency DDR5 memory, setting the stage for even greater DDR5 frequency breakthroughs. The new 24GB module can consistently operate at 8400MHz, with timings of CL40-52-52-134. This was corroborated on a platform equipped with an Intel Core i9-14900K processor and ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 APEX ENCORE motherboard.

In AIDA 64 tests, this DDR5-8400 memory achieved read speeds of 128.88GB/s, write speeds of 127.03 GB/s, and copy speeds of 123.83 GB/s, offering a stellar performance experience for high-end overclocking enthusiasts.

Furthermore, G.Skill’s research team, in their relentless pursuit to push DDR5 memory speed boundaries, showcased on Intel’s latest platform a dual-channel DDR5 memory of 2x24GB capacity, elevating its frequency to a staggering 8600MHz, with adjusted timings of CL40-54-54-136. In the AIDA 64 tests, it clocked read speeds at 130.66GB/s, write speeds at 130.24 GB/s, and copy speeds at 126.31 GB/s, challenging the zenith of memory overclocking potential.
