Taking advantage of the launch of the new Intel Kaby Lake processors, memory chip manufacturer G.SKILL has announced two new DDR4 TridentZ RAM kits specifically designed for the Z270 platform along with these seventh generation processors.
The fastest kit will consist of two 8 GB modules to achieve a total of 16 GB with speeds of 4.266 MHz and latancies of CL19-19-19-39 to 1,4 volts, while the other kit will arrive with double the capacity, 32 GB, distributed in four 8 GB modules with speeds of 4.133 MHz and latancies of CL19-21-21-41 to 1,35v.
In all cases the modules will have a G.SKILL TridentZ heatsink with a RGB lighting system on the top, something that could not be missing considering the trend that exists in the sector for everything that has to do with multicolor lighting.
These two kits will be accompanied by other 16 and 32 GB models with more moderate speeds of 4000MHz, 3866 MHz and 3600 MHz with latancies of CL 19, 18 and 17 respectively.
The most compact model is to be found in the EVGA Z270 Stinger in Mini-ITX format. Being smaller it has space for only two DDR4 memory modules and its power supply phases drop to 6. It only has one PCIe X16 port and an Intel i219 Gigabit Ethernet card to which has been added a WiFi 802.11ac module and Bluetooth.
The sound remains under the charge of the Realtek ALC 1150 and it has two M.2, U.2, USB-C and four SATA III.
