Keeping up with today's demanding PC tech can break your wallet, with components like DDR4 RAM commanding $100 prices for 16GB modules. Apacer aims to take some of the burden off or your bank account with its new line of budget-friendly Panther DDR4 RAM sticks.
Apacer's Panther DDR4 RAM modules ship in 4GB and 8GB flavors, with a maximum capacity at 64GB. The Panther line operates at 1.2V and sports three different clock ratios at 2133/2400/2666MHz timed at 15-15-15-36 and 16-16-16-36. The memory sticks support Z170 and 8150 motherboards, and are compatible with XMP 2.0 for easy overclocking beyond 2400MHz.
Stylized gold-and-silver Claw-shaped heat spreaders line the tops of each Panther module, allowing for excellent heat dissipation performance. Taiwanese tech-maker boasts that the modules' IC's have been "extensively screened" for quality to ensure "fast speeds as well as extreme stability on a high system load during long gaming session".
Interestingly enough, the press release makes no note of pricing or availability, but mentions that the RAM will be "budget-friendly" while keeping up DDR4-level stability, optimization and performance. We'll be sure to update this news post if new details emerge.
