G.Skill is once again touting a world memory frequency record after an overclocker pushed the company's TridentX RAM to an astonishing 4400MHz. The TridentX Series is recognized as some of the fastest RAM available, culminating in a 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3-3000 kit rated at CL12-14-14-35 at 1.65V. To achieve the world record in memory frequency, overclocker James "YoungPro" Trevaskis from TeamAU used a single stick from the aforementioned kit, which of course required exotic cooling.
Memory maker G.Skill is laying claim to the "world's fastest RAM" after an overclocker goosed the company's TridentX Extreme Performance memory kit to 1,950MHz (3,900MHz effective). Whether you want to qualify that as the world's fastest RAM is up to you (and clearly G.Skill does), but it is a new memory frequency world record, so there are some well deserved bragging rights to go around.
With Intel having finally and officially launched its much anticipated Ivy Bridge platform yesterday, the floodgates have been opened for a new generation of parts and accessories designed to play nice with the Santa Clara chip maker's 3rd generation Core processors. One of those companies is G.Skill, makers of high performance system memory like the new TridentX DDR3 series.
