G.Skill's new Trident Z memory blends face-melting speeds with multi-colored LEDs
Why this mattters: G.Skill isn’t the first company to come out with fancy LED RAM. Corsair's Vengeance line-up offers patriotic, single-color red, white, or blue models. Geil is also working on RGB LED lighting for RAM that can change colors, but it requires extra power connectors. Geil’s RAM also relies on motherboard OEMs to add built-in support for controlling the colors and lighting patterns, according to Tom’s Hardware. G.Skill’s multi-hued Trident Z RGB Series, by comparison, won’t have these problems—most notably the need for extra cables.
