G.Skill has announced that it has expanded its Trident Z family by adding further unnecessary frills. If the existing Trident Z Royal DDR4 memory modules with crystalline RGB light bar were a bit frumpy or drab for you, the new high-end Trident Z Royal Elite RGB DDR4 modules might better suit.
The new memory modules are said to have been "crafted for magnificence" by G.Skill's designers. The only change from the previous series, but it is a big one, is the "multi-faceted crystalline design across the reflective aluminium heatspreader". This angular undulating heatspreader is said to be made from solid aluminium, and is available with a silver or gold finish. G.Skill says that the heatspreader design features 76 facets, but it hasn't come up with any thermal or aerodynamic reason for this precise number of facets or their shapes – they just look nice I guess.
The crystalline light bar across the top of these Elite DIMMs is the same one used in the other Trident Z Royal modules. As a reminder, that means the light bar is full length and encapsulates 8-zone RGB lighting.
At launch G.Skill is making its Trident Z Royal Elite kits available at speeds ranging from DDR4-3600 to DDR4-5333, as befits a high-end PC memory product line. Each memory kit is made not just from those high-quality materials listed above but using hand-screened memory IC chips and tested for compatibility and stability across a wide range of motherboards.
G.Skill partners will be distributing the high-end Trident Z Royal Elite RGB DDR4 memory modules and kits starting from May. We don't have pricing at the time of writing.
