G.SKILL recently announced its latest Trident Z RGB DDR4 memory kits with enhanced compatibility on the latest AMD Ryzen and Threadripper platforms. AMD currently has two platform offerings, where Ryzen supports dual-channel with 2 or 4 memory modules and Threadripper supports quad-channel memory with 4 or 8 memory modules.
