G.SKILL unveils its Trident Z5 Royal kits in a trailer


A few hours ago, we learned from a press release that G.SKILL would be offering new DDR5 memory kits at the 2024 edition of Computex, to be held from June 4 to 7, 2024. Finally, it was through a trailer posted on their various social networks that we discovered that this would be the return of the “Trident Z5 Royal” series. It’s a series we’d been able to discover with DDR4 memory modules, notably via the test of the G.SKILL Trident Z Royal DDR4 4000 MT/S CL16 kit. As you’ll have gathered, the addition of the number “5” to the “Z5” designation refers to DDR5. It’s also worth noting that G.SKILL later offered a Trident Z Royal Elite version. Whether this will also be the case for DDR5 remains to be seen.

It’s worth noting that this series hasn’t always met with unanimous approval, with some people finding it very pretty and others, not being afraid of words, horrified by its bling-bling side. Personally, we’ve always found the ” silver ” versions to be prettier and easier to match to a configuration than the ” gold ” versions. The main feature of this series is the series of mini-crystals that make up the upper part where the RGB backlighting is located.

The DDR4 series features 8 addressable LEDs controlled by Trident Z Royal software. This offers over a dozen lighting effects and management of up to 4 lighting profiles, as well as the possibility of controlling each module individually or in sync, so you can customize your own color palette to the max. No word yet on frequencies, kit capacities or prices. We’ll certainly have to wait until the start of Computex!
