Anyone who’s been looking at recent PC video game releases like Star Wars Battlefront and Fallout 4 might be thinking that’s time to build a new rig. With that in mind, G.Skill has unveiled a new memory kit that’s sure to raise some interest among the gaming set.

The Trident Z is comprised of a pair of 8GB DIMMs, combined to offer 16GB of DDR4 memory. Remarkably, this RAM is capable of reaching speeds of up to 4,133 MT/s with 1.4V at latencies of 19-25-25-45, according to information gathered by the Tech Report.

According to the manufacturer, the Trident Z will use high quality Samsung ICs, and features XMP 2.0 profiles to help facilitate overclocking. Tech Report also notes that the RAM’s heat-spreader design seems to be an improvement over previous effort.

G.Skill announced a raft of new RAM components today, with four 16GB kits and four 32GB kits, all of which are made up of 8GB DIMMs. The majority of these components run between 3,600 MT/s and 3,733 MT/s, with 16GB kits that linger between 3,866 MT/s and 4,000 MT/s being offered as a tier just below the 4,133 MT/s flagship.

In recent months, we’ve seen G.Skill experiment with a more diverse line of products, announcing a range of customizable mechanical keyboards in September followed by a high-end gaming mouse later that month. However, the unveiling of the Trident Z demonstrates that the company has no intentions to exit the field of RAM manufacturing.

Details on pricing and the Trident Z release date has not been made available by G.Skill as of the time of writing. However, there should be little doubt that the RAM will be priced in line with its capabilities — speeds of 4,133 MT/s are not likely to come cheap.
