G.SKILL Announces New DDR4 Specifications for Intel Kaby Lake Platform

G.SKILL announces a new high-speed DDR4 memory specification designed for the latest 7th Gen Intel Core CPUs and Z270 motherboards under the Extreme Performance Trident Z series. Upon the launch of Intel’s latest Kaby Lake platform, G.SKILL bumps up the maximum frequency speeds of their kits to a blistering fast 4266 MHz frequency. There are two high frequency kits specifically made for Kaby Lakes, and those are the DDR4-4266MHz at CL19-19-19-39 for 16GB (8GBx2) kits and DDR4-4133MHz CL19-21-21-41 for 32GB (8GBx4) kits. Now on sale at Newegg too!


The Fastest 16GB (8GBx2) Kit – DDR4-4266 CL19-19-19-39

Extremely high frequency memory kits often are achieved at the sacrifice of unsightly CL timings. Not anymore! With a more streamlined and efficient CL19-19-19-39 timing memory kit at 4266MHz, the limits have been increased under the latest 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processor.

The Fastest 32GB (8GBx4) Kit – DDR4-4133 CL19-21-21-41

Those familiar with overclocking and high performance memory kits know that increased memory capacity also makes it difficult to raise the frequency speed. Built on decades of experience, G.SKILL is raising the limits of 8GBx4 kits to an unprecedented DDR4-4133MHz.
