DDR5-6000 memory for AMD Ryzen 7000 systems
G.Skill is said to be working on a new memory module offering 6000 MT/s speed out of the box.
The company is preparing memory modules designed specifically for AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU. This Trident Z5 memory kit would be the first known product to feature AMD EXPO (EXtended Profiles for Overclocking).
With the announcement of AMD X670E motherboards just last week, board partners made it clear that their motherboards will support either Intel XMP 3.0 profiles or AMD EXPO. The latter has not been officially confirmed by AMD though, although the leaks on the EXPO technology have been circulating for a while (at least since April this year).
Some companies did confirm EXPO as an exclusive memory overclocking feature for AMD Ryzen 7000 systems. This technology is said to offer two overclocking profiles, either offering low-latency or high bandwidth.
G.Skill Trident Z5 memory carrying a product code “F5-6000J3038F16G” would offer timing of CL30-38-38-96 and up to 6000 MT/s of bandwidth. Such timing would be lower than similar G.Skill kits now available for Intel systems with XMP profiles and CL-30-40-40-96 timings. Furthermore, it was previously mentioned that 6000 MT/s speed might be the AMD Ryzen 7000’s “sweet spot”.
AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs along with new X670 motherboard series are said to launch on September 15th. It is possible that we might hear more officially about G.Skill/AMD memory kit sooner.
