G.Skill launched its DDR5-8000 CL38 48GB (24GB x2) memory kit
Previously, MSI, ASRock, Gigabyte, and ASUS announced that their Intel 600/700 series motherboards now support single memory modules with a capacity of 24GB and 48GB, which means that memory capacity will depart from the historical increase in powers of two. Motherboards with four DIMM slots will have a maximum memory capacity of 192GB, up from 128GB, and those with two DIMM slots will have a maximum memory capacity of 96GB, up from 64GB.
Corsair, an American company, has released a variety of related products, including the Vengeance series with a DDR5-7000 48GB (24GB x2) kit, with timings of CL40. G.Skill, one of the most active companies in the pursuit of high-frequency DDR5 memory, is no exception when it comes to the new single memory modules with capacities of 24GB and 48GB. G.Skill announced recently that they will release a DDR5-8000 CL38 48GB (24GB x2) kit as part of their Trident Z5 RGB memory series.
G.Skill stated that its research and development team has been exploring the speed limits of DDR5 memory and has successfully achieved a frequency of 8000MHz using the latest 24GB capacity modules, with timings adjusted to CL38-48-48-127. When paired with an Intel Core i9-13900K processor and an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 APEX motherboard, the memory achieved a read speed of 123.76GB/s, a write speed of 120.75GB/s, and a copy speed of 118.02GB/s in the AIDA64 memory bandwidth benchmark test.
Since the DDR5-8000 CL38 48GB (24GB x2) kit has been imported with Intel XMP 3.0 technology, players can enable XMP functionality in the motherboard BIOS and pair it with a matching processor and motherboard to achieve the official overclocking speed of DDR5 memory.
G.Skill stated that the DDR5-8000 CL38 48GB (24GB x2) kit will be shipped to major channel partners in April 2023, but no specific pricing information is available at this time.
