During Computex 2021, G.Skill has announced a couple of new memory kits featuring its regal-looking Trident Z Royal Elite heatsinks. Available with super tight primary latencies of CL14, the new Trident Z Royal Elite kits will be available in DDR4-4000 and DDR4-3600, with various capacities available, including 16, 32, 64, and 128 GB kits.

There are many different parts of a system that can add varying levels of aesthetic glamor, including the motherboard, CPU cooler, fans, anything with RGB on it, but almost everything struggles to be as bling as G.Skills Trident Z Royal Elite memory. Launched back in April, the G.Skill Trident Z Royal Elite comes available in gold and silver. Both color variants feature eight customizable RGB LED lighting zones, with a patented crystalline patterning across for that regal touch.

Touching on the specifications, the top kit features speeds of DDR4-4000 with CL14-14-14-35, at a larger-than-expected operating voltage of 1.55 V. It will be available in two varieties, including a 16 GB (2 x 8 GB), and a 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) kit. The DDR4-3600 kits come with equally tight CL14 latencies, with a slightly lower 1.45 V operating voltage, and will be available in 16 GB (2 x 8 GB), 32 GB with the option for 2 x 16 GB or 4 x 8 GB kits. For users looking for more capacity, there are options at 64 GB with 4 x 16 GB and a large 128 GB kit with 8 x 16 GB. 

G.Skill says the new Trident Z Royal Elite DDR4-4000 and DDR4-3600 CL14 kits will be available from June but haven't provided us with pricing at the time of writing.

    Yeah, I don't have a window. On purpose. I like it quiet and not blingy. I have the RGB DDR4 3200 (14-14-14-34) G.Skill. The lighting is cute. If I was a teenager I'd probably care about that stuff. Function over form. My NH-D15 obscures them to some degree as well. But this ram is UGLY.

    additionally i would doubt that concepts of the 19th/20th centuries, based on a luxury idea for creating spread wealth increase, will cope with increasing world population, resources availability or carbon dioxide enrichment in atmosphere. How many of these will be sold - that would be an interesting statistics detail?

    even tried to understand "76" "multi-faceted" "crystalline pattern" for the heatspreader on scientific base for heat transfer improvements (what makes this way more difficult to simulate for diverse customer boards and its ram sockets orientation, instead of flat or repeating structures based on statistic importance) and "polished to perfection" means the visual effects but does not add to heat transfer efficiency, AFAIK. Controversially one could compare this to passive heat spreader for cpu/gpu/sram main processing units https://www.anandtech.com/show/16744/noctua-nh-p1-... for understanding "function over form" on that elite level?

    Still not as bad as Intel’s skull on SSDs.

    This is far worse. The Intel Skull has been a market for their enthusiast platform since like forever. Yeah, its a bit childish but it conveys that message of what it's supposed to be. This "Royal" RAM is most garish form of over the top bling I've ever seen on PC hardware.

    It’s incredibly idiotic and condescending.

    How long it has been foisted onto buyers is irrelevant.

    It’s also a real version of the old ‘no go’ business school automotive anecdote, since a skull clearly connotes death and dead SSDs are not what most buyers want.

    If you don't like the bling bling of Royal Elite versions, they are available in Ripjaws V, Trident Z RGB, Trident Z NEO, Trident Z Royal Gold, Trident Z Royal Silver, Trident Z Royal Elite Gold, Trident Z Royal Elite Silver versions.
    Quite pricy, though

    Yes it is. My DDR4 memory was just as expensive as my super tight timings DDR3 ram. When you decide to build you have to purchase at the price it's selling if you want it. I passed on upgrading my 1080 Ti. Just not worth it at this time.
