The latest memory maker to RGB-ify its sticks is G.Skill with its new high performance Trident Z RGB series. Geil beat G.Skill to the punch here by putting RGB lighting on its Evo X RAM, but unlike those modules, G.Skill's Trident Z memory does not require any additional power connections. Instead, the modules draw the necessary power from the DIMM slots to light up each stick's uncovered full-length light bar.
Fancy lighting aside, the Trident Z family is G.Skill's flagship RAM featuring a custom 10-layer PCB and hand picked ICs for better overclocking performance. The Trident Z RGB series is no exception—G.Skill claims these newest modules will be capable of reaching speeds of up to DDR4-4266MHz.
"Trident Z RGB series memory kits are rigorously tested under proprietary G.Skill test methods for reliability and compatibility to ensure the highest possible quality. And like all other G.Skill memory, the Trident Z RGB is covered under a limited lifetime warranty, as well as full support for XMP 2.0 for easy overclocking and simple BIOS setup" G.Skill adds.
The Trident Z RGB series will be available around the middle of January. Pricing information is not available at this time, but the non-RGB Tridents can give you a baseline to guess from.
