GSkill Launches 4000MHz RAM For AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs

The new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs have been an instant hit among gamers. These blazing fast CPUs are capable of supporting RAM with speeds up to 4,000MHz and AMD recommends users to pair their 5000 series CPUs with at least 4,000MHz RAM for optimal performance.

Now, GSkill has confirmed that it will be updating its popular Trident Z Neo memory to effective 4,000MHz speeds, which should make it a perfect fit for the Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. The RAM will require a slight overclocking, and when that's accomplished, users can have their RAM running at a 1:1 ratio across Infinity Fabric, memory, and memory controller, resulting in an unparalleled lightning-fast experience.

The update to the Trident Z Neo brings the memory to DDR4-4000 CL16, which promises ultra-fast speeds and lower latency. These RAM sticks will be available in both 16GB and 32GB capacities. However, if you want to bump that memory up to 64GB, you can drop latency down to CL18, which isn't that slow either.

All AMD Zen 3 CPUs are said to support 4,000MHz memory, but not all CPUs are capable of maintaining the 1:1 CPU and RAM performance ratio, which is important for users who are looking to churn as much juice as possible from the Ryzen 5000 builds.

So, while GSkill is the first to offer Ryzen 5000-compatible memory, we suggest that you wait and see how the industry plays out. You'll quickly see other memory manufacturing companies like ADATA, Corsair, Crucial, Kingston, and others release custom RAM kits for the new processors from AMD.

With the new 4,000MHz memory, you'll also need a compatible motherboard like the top-end X570 motherboards or the recently released B550 motherboards.

Before you go get yourself some new RAM, you might want to be worried about getting yourself a Ryzen 5000 series CPU, which are quickly becoming out of stock.
