DDR3 RAM has been around for over 6 years. The original JEDEC specifications for DDR3 RAM speed was to top out at 2133 MHz with a timing of 11-11-11. By this time, DDR4 RAM was to be introduced with higher speeds. G.Skill seems to have other plans in mind with their new 3000 MHz Extreme Speed DDR3 RAM.
The new G.Skill TridentX series will blow JEDEC specs out of the water. Even the slowest, and I use that word loosely, TridentX (2666 MHz with timing of 12-13-13-35) is well beyond most RAM available today. The series will also have kits at 2800 MHz, 2933 MHz, and of course 3000 MHz in kit sizes of 8 GB up to 32 GB.
Designed for the new Intel Haswell processors, the TridentX's monstrous speed still falls to 1.65V for all available kits. It also fully supports the latest XMP profile standards. These kits are perfect for those who need high-speed RAM disk space, do extreme overclocking, or just want the best performance possible.
There is currently no mention of price and availability for the TridentX series at this time. We should hopefully have more details after COMPUTEX 2013 which runs June 4 - 8th in Taipei, Taiwan.
