The extreme DDR5-8000 kits for high-end desktop PCs have been announced by NETAC, the newest memory vendor.

NETA Goes Ultra High-End With DDR5-8000 Memory Kits, Z-RGB Lineup Equipped With Hynix A-Die

G.Skill unveiled its DDR5-8000 Trident Z5 high speed memory kits earlier last month. These kits went on sale in retail for a starting price of $529.99 US. Now that the new Z-RGB portfolio includes DDR5-8000 kits, NETAC is the second memory manufacturer to provide them. The NETAC Z-RGB memory kits include a sizable chrome-silver-plated heatsink and a sizable RGB diffuser on top. The DRAM and PMIC found on the PCB should be adequately cooled by the 1.8mm thick aluminum heatsink used in the memory modules. The memory is offered in silver and black. The silver variant has the advantage of using the electroplated silver technique to give it a more upscale appearance.

The NETAC Z-RGB DDR5 lineup is available in six flavors, starting with the most entry-level DDR5-6000 spec, which has CL timings of 36-36-36-96 (1.35V). This is followed by DDR5-6200 (CL timings of 32-38-38-96 @1.35V), DDR5-6600 (CL timings of 34-40-40-105 @1.4V), DDR5-7200 (CL timings of 34-45-45-115 @ The DDR5-8000 memory kit, which has been discussed, has the highest specifications. Its CL timings are specified at 38-48-48-128 and its voltage is 1.5V. Six DDR5 memory kits are available in 16 GB or 32 GB capacities (dual-channel modules).

NETAC claims that their Z-RGB DDR5 memory series is powered by the most recent SK Hynix A-Die. Although we are unsure if they are XMP or EXPO certified, NETAC intends to offer compatibility with both AMD Ryzen 7000 and Intel 12/13th Gen systems. We may anticipate more information at CES 2023, which is coming up in a few weeks, but NETAC has not yet stated when it wants to deliver them or what the costs would be.
