GeIL add the Super Luce RGB Lite Series to their range

By: Shaun Grimley | More News: RAM | Posted: 2 days, 19 hours ago

GeIL today announced the Super Luce RGB Lite DDR4 memory range. If you're a fan of GeIL products, you may remember that GeIL have recently released the Super Luce RGB Sync variant. These modules are practically identical with only a few subtle differences.

 

geil-add-super-luce-rgb-lite-series-range_01

 

There is no software support for The Super Luce RGB Lite, this means you can't customize your RGB LED settings and are locked with the manufactures preset lighting. The Super Luce RGB Sync supported a cable that connected to your motherboard, allowing customization via software.

 

As for performance, as expected they're identical. Both feature single and dual-channel kits up to 32GB (2x16GB), speeds of DDR4-2133MHz to DDR4-3200MHz and are available in black and white finish. Backed with lifetime warranty, GeIL also offer AMD variants of the Super Luce RBG line up for those AMD Ryzen builds.

ADATA's new XPG SPECTRIC D40: RGB DDR4 for X299

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Jul 25, 2017 9:27 am

ADATA has just unveiled its latest kit of DDR4 memory, debuting the XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4 kit, and yes - it features glorious RGBs.

ADATA's new XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4 kit comes in speeds of between 2400MHz and 4000MHz, making it perfect for your new enthusiast/high-end gaming PC, including the new X299 chipset from Intel. SPECTRIX D40 adds in that RGB awesome sauce on top of the DDR4 RAM being available at up to 4000MHz, making it perfect for those who need it super-fast, but not want to lose out on looks.

 

adatas-new-xpg-spectric-d40-rgb-ddr4-x299_06

 

The XPG team worked with Intel to make sure the new SPECTRIX D40 was ready for X299, with the SPECTRIX D40 SPD (serial presence detect) settings work with Intel XMP 2.0, making sure that the RAM is running at their intended clock speeds, and not lower due to no XMP 2.0 support. ADATA has also used 10-layer PCBs, two ounces of pure copper and heat sinks made from aluminum alloy. This isn't a half-baked DDR4 kit, that's for sure.

 

You can also use the new ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D40 with ASUS Aura Sync, lightning up your entire system (if you have the right parts) beautifully.

G.SKILL launches quad-channel DDR4-4200 kits for X299

G.SKILL just don't stop with their lust for taking over the RAM market, announcing their new quad-channel DDR4 kit designed for Intel's next-gen Skylake-X CPUs and the new X299 platform.

 

skill-launches-quad-channel-ddr4-4200-kits-x299_07

 

We now have G.SKILL's latest flagship 64GB Trident Z DDR4-4200 in quad-channel with 4 x 16GB DIMMs, while there's a dual-channel Trident Z DDR4-4400 Black series, ready for the new Kaby Lake-X processors. Samsung is providing their 20nm 8Gb DDR4 DRAM modules, available in 3600, 3733, 3800, 4000, and 4200MHz, with voltages from 1.35V to 1.4V.

 

The faster Trident Z kits have higher latencies of up to CL19 on DDR4-4200, while the slower kits will have their latencies at CL16. G.SKILL loves RGB LEDs, so there are two variants of X299 ready DDR4: Trident Z, and Trident Z RGB.

G.Skill TridentZ DDR4 hits 5.5GHz with Core i7-7740K CPU

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Jun 18, 2017 11:52 am

G.SKILL are constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible with DDR4 overclocking, so it comes as no surprise that they've hit a massive milestone: 5.5GHz on DDR4.

 

skill-tridentz-ddr4-hits-5ghz-core-i7-7740k-cpu_09

 

The new 5.5GHz barrier was reached with Intel's fresh X299 chipset and their new Core i7-7740K processor, with G.SKILL's TridentZ DDR4 RAM, with the MSI X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard used by Taiwanese overclocker Toppc. The RAM in question used Samsung's impressive 8Gb ICs which were pushed to their limits, with Toppc hitting 5GHz on a Skylake-based Core i5-6600K last year.

 

G.SKILL Corporate Vice President Tequila Huang said: "DDR4 5.5GHz has been our next target after we achieved DDR4 5GHz last year. We are extremely excited to finally make it happen together with Samsung components, MSI X299 motherboard, and Intel Core X-series processor. We are seeing amazing overclocking potential for these newly released hardware and we believe that more overclocking benchmark records will be achieved very soon by professional overclockers worldwide".
