G.Skill is a company (from Taipei) whose products don’t need an introduction. The main “dish” is the RAM, from the DDR5 type. The provided sample is from a Trident Z5 series. We already covered the 5600 MHz CL36 (RGB-less) variant back in March’2022 (and it earned the “Recommended” award), and 7200 MHz CL34 (with the RGB lighting) also in March, but 2023 (this time it was the “Top Pick”). This time around, the sample is from the high-capacity kits (2x24 GB/2x48 GB) that were announced, yes – also in March (‘23), reaching up to 8200 MHz for the 2x 24 GB edition, and up to 6800 MHz when two 48 GB modules are used.

Patriot Viper Venom RGB 7400 CL36 memory is the kit we will present today. It’s not the first DDR5 set from that company on guru3d. Almost a year ago, the Viper Venom 6200 CL40 was checked. The sample we’re reviewing is the best of the series. There’s also the Elite 5 (RGB/Non-RGB), which can achieve up to 7000 MHz and capacities of up to 96GB, and if you want the most performance, there’s Viper Extreme 5 series, where you can get even an 8000 MHz frequency memory (and the lowest available is 7600 MHz).

The S91 SSD is specifically designed for small mobile devices such as ultrabooks, laptops, tablets, and gaming devices. Its small form factor, M.2 2230 PCIe Gen4x4, enables efficient storage integration in compact devices. With a PCIe Gen4x4 interface, the S91 SSD delivers impressive performance, offering sequential read speeds of up to 5,000MB/s, making it compatible with the latest Intel and AMD platforms while still adhering to PCIe Gen3 standards. 


Crucial P5 Plus w/ heatsink 2TB PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD Review

Delivering superior performance (6600 MB/s) at an affordable price, Crucial's P5 Plus now comes equipped with a heatsink. Although the P5 Plus has been on the market for some time, the slower adoption rate of PCIe Gen 5.0 SSDs prompted Crucial to introduce a new SKU featuring a heatsink. Retaining its 2021 SSD status, the P5 Plus has been enhanced with highly optimized firmware. At a price point of $119 for 2TB, it offers commendable value.

VColor Manta ROG XSky RGB 7000 CL36 memory is the kit we will present today. It’s not the first one from that Taiwanese company on guru3d. Over a year ago, the V-Color Manta Xprism 6200 CL36 (2x16GB) was reviewed (and it earned the “Recommended” award). This time it’s the ROG-Certified series, which allows higher frequency on the Asus Maximus motherboards than on the others. The sample we’re checking is not the best of the series (but it’s close), as even the 7200 MHz CL36 is available.


Crucial Pro 32GB DDR5 - 5600 MHz CL46 review

We look at a Crucial 32GB 5600 MHz CL46 DDR5 memory kit with Micron origins. This set is based on their newly released PRO serres. Being Crucial, though, implies that it's a bargain package that provides 95% of the performance you require for 99 EUR for 32GB. We'll do tests using Raptor-Lake CPUs from Intel's Gen 13th generation.


Neo Forza Trinity DDR5 6400 CL40 2x16 GB review

Neo Forza Trinity 6400 CL40 32 GB kit is the second kit (after the Neo Forza Trinity JetBlack 6000 CL40 2x 32GB) from the Taiwanese company (which was founded in 2018) that we had a chance to look at. It is a brand of Goldkey (which has existed since 1998) that focuses on enthusiast-grade products. You can find the SATA, M.2 PCIe drives, DDR4, and DDR5 in the offer. As for the last item from the list, Neo Forza offers four series: Trinity, which we’re reviewing (with the RGB and the frequencies up to 7800 MHz); Trinity JetBlack (w/o RGB and up to 7800 MHz); MDK5 (w/o RGB and the frequencies up to 6800 MHz); PnP (4800-5200 MHz, JEDEC compliant, and 1.1 V). We got a sample of the Trinity (so with the RGB lighting) kit that consists of two 16 GB modules with a frequency of 6400 MHz and latency of CL40.

We got a sample of the Trinity JetBlack (so without the RGB lighting) kit that consists of two 32 GB modules with a frequency of 6000 MHz and latency of CL40. 64 GB of RAM sounds like a lot; it will probably be overkill for many “average-Joe” users.

We have two samples of the fastest SSD on the globe, which meet the Crucial T700 PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD. Both units are 2TB, one with a heatsink and the other should be placed underneath a motherboard heatsink. This series offers performance metrics running upwards to 12 GB/sec for sustained reads/writes based on a Phison E26 controller and all-new Micron's 3D TLC NAND based on 232-layers

Geil (Golden Emperor International Limited) is headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan. It was founded in 1993 and will have its 30th anniversary this year. At the end of last year, we had an opportunity to check their Evo V DDR5 memory kit, consisting of two 16 GB modules with a frequency of 6200 MHz and CL34 latency. What are the main differences vs. Evo V? Mainly, the design of a radiator and the lack of two fans used for active cooling of the modules. This time, we will review Geil’s second series, Polaris RGB (there’s also a “regular” Polaris without the lighting), with an astonishing frequency of 8000 MHz.

VULCANα is a more budget-friendly series from Teamgroup than the Delta RGB, which we checked in 6000 CL40 and 7200 CL34 variants. They are mainly known for memory but also have SSDs, memory cards, USB drives, mobile accessories, and peripherals. The provided sample is from a VULCANα series. It's the mid-tier in the TeamGroup TForce offer, as it offers frequencies up to 6000 MHz.

G.Skill, a Taipei-based company, is a household name in the tech industry. They have established a reputation for producing high-quality DDR memory, but they also offer a diverse range of products including AIOs such as the Enki 360, stylish chassis like the Z5i, sleek keyboards like the KM360, and various other peripherals. However, their crown jewel is the DDR5 RAM, of which the Trident Z5 RGB series is a prime example. With frequencies reaching up to 8000 MHz, this series stands as the top tier in G.Skill's offerings.
