G.Skill Zeta R5 series: 6400 MHz, supports Intel XMP 3.0 technology

When talking about memory, the words “overclocking” and “ECC” aren’t usually put in the same sentence, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Recently, G.Skill, a memory brand familiar to enthusiasts, registered a DDR5 RDIMM memory module for workstations and servers, and put “overclocking” and “ECC” together.

Recently, Der8auer, a well-known overclocking enthusiast from Germany, showed the new products of the G.Skill Zeta R5 series. This should be used for the recent Xeon W-3400/2400 series processors launched by Intel, in which models with the “X” suffix support overclocking, which can be understood as the successor of the previous HEDT platform Core-X models.

From the appearance point of view, this DDR5 ECC memory is relatively simple, without any fancy shapes and textures. It uses a black PCB and an aluminum heat sink. Its number is “F5-6400R3239G16GE8-ZR5K”, which means that the total capacity of the memory kit is 128GB, and the single capacity is 16GB. The clock is 6400 MHz, the memory timing is 32-39-39-102, and the operating voltage is 1.4V. It supports Intel XMP 3.0 technology and can be set with one key.

Since DDR5 memory with a single capacity of 24GB and 48GB has recently appeared, some suppliers have launched a four-memory package with a total capacity of 192GB, so a total of 128GB for an eight-memory package seems a bit insufficient. Although ECC is a highlight of new products, SK Hynix has previously demonstrated DDR5-5600/6400 RDIMM memory modules with a single capacity of 48GB and 96GB. In the future, it is not ruled out that the Zeta R5 series will also have products with bigger capacity.

The pricing and time to market of the Zeta R5 series memory kit are not yet clear, and we have to wait for G.Skill to announce more information.
