Not content with making ever-larger and ever-faster RAM kits, G.Skill is pushing speed and latency boundaries this time around. The company's latest 16GB Trident Z kit clocks in at 3600 MT/s with 15-15-15-35 timings, and it spreads its capacity across two 8GB DIMMs. This responsive kit turns in those numbers while running at 1.35V. We've built systems with Trident Z RAM in the past, and the two-tone aluminum heat spreaders on these DIMMs look pretty snazzy, too.
As DDR4-3600 goes, a two-DIMM 16GB kit is pretty unusual, and such a kit with 15-15-15-35 timings appears to be a first. A quick survey of Newegg suggests that similarly-specced kits with four 4GB DIMMs are most common right now. G.Skill and Corsair both make 16GB DDR4-3600 kits with 16-16-16-36 timings, though G.Skill offers a two-DIMM kit with those specs while Corsair's sticks with four.
Builders who need this Trident Z kit's uncommon combo of low latencies and high speeds will be able to pick one up at the end of April. G.Skill didn't announce pricing info, but we'd expect a hefty premium over the company's already-pricey 16GB DDR4-3600 kit with 16-16-16-36 timings. That kit sells for $154.99 on Newegg right now. Slightly more pedestrian 16GB DDR4-3200 kits with 15-15-15-35 timings sell for about $100.
