G.Skill has announced a new, high capacity DDR5 memory kit for Intel's 13th Generation Raptor Lake processors and accompanying LGA1700 platform. The Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-8000 CL38, which features a capacity of 48 GB (2 x 24 GB), comes with an Intel XMP 3.0 profile for a fast and effortless setup on high-end systems that can accomodate the high-speed hardware With the release of 24 Gbit DDR5 memory chips, memory manufacturers are working to fill in the gap between current 16 GB and 32 GB UDIMMs. As these new, higher capacity dies allow for larger single-rank DIMMs, this is allowing DIMM vendors such as G.Skill to launch higher capacity versions of their fastest DIMMs. The memory timings on the Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-8000 aren't great, but...
