G.Skill, a leading producer of high-end memory modules for enthusiasts, on Tuesday introduced two new kits aimed at those who demand the maximum memory performance on systems powered by the latest Intel Corp.'s Core i-series 3000-family "Ivy Bridge" microprocessors. In fact, the 2.80GHz memory kit can be considered as the industry's fastest commercial DDR3 dual-channel memory solution available.

All G.Skill TridentX dual-channel DDR3 memory kits come with the latest Intel XMP 1.3 standard developed for the Intel Z77-based platform. In addition to various 8GB, 16GB and 32GB kits graded to work at  2.40GHz and 2.60GHz clock-speeds, G.Skill offers 32GB kit that can operate at 2.66GHz with CL11 13-13-35 latencies at 1.65V voltage as well as 16GB kit that can function at whopping 2.80GHz with CL11 13-13-35 timings at 1.65V voltage.

Intel Core "Ivy Bridge" central processing units officially support ultra high-speed DDR3 memory by default and 2.80GHz is an official memory speed for it. G.Skill claims that TridentX 2800MHz 16GB kit cab successfully achieve whopping 3320MHz speed while maintaining dual-channel mode.

While the extreme memory speed race has been rather calm in the recent couple of years, with the Ivy Bridge chip it is going to enter a new 3GHz+ level in the coming months as the potential of the new CPU in terms of memory speed seems to be very high.

G.Skill did not reveal pricing of its new modules, but typically high-end/high-capacity kits are pretty expensive.

The higher clock speed of the ram does not help in the failure of the chips design in that it incapable of any sort of graphics an AMD A 3800 beats it hands down in graphics. Intel should have stuck to what they know and graphics is not their strong point. Getting faster ram will not improve a bad design.
