Inno3D teases new iChill gaming RAM with RGBs

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Aug 13, 2018 3:02 am

Inno3D is better known for its custom GeForce graphics cards but now the company is stepping into a new market: gaming memory, in the form of their new iChill RAM.




The new high-end iChill RAM will be in capacities between 4-16GB and speeds of between 2400-4000MHz with an interesting heatspreader to keep it cool. A set of gaming RAM couldn't be complete without RGBs, with Inno3D giving its new iChill gaming RAM some RGBs to seal the deal.


Inno3D has explained its new iChill gaming memory: "The hatching product family will crawl out of its shell under the name i CHILL and will come in various capacities of 4GB up to 16GB at speeds of 2400MHz up to 4000MHz and with ultra-low latencies up to 15CL".

GIGABYTE to show off AORUS RGB RAM at Computex 2018

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Jun 4, 2018 2:39 am

Computex 2018 - GIGABYTE is reportedly set to unveil AORUS RGB memory because, well, why the hell not, right?




The company will be unveiling new 16GB kits at 3200MHz (2 x 8GB) powered by their RGB Fusion technology, so when mixed with an AORUS motherboard you're going to get RGB perfection.


The only issue here is that you'll be locked into AORUS with both the motherboard and RAM, so if you shifted to another motherboard manufacturer, you're not going to have a good time with this RAM. Hmm.

G.SKILL launch world's first DDR4-4700MHz RAM, sports RGB

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Feb 6, 2018 1:31 am

G.SKILL has just unveiled the fastest DDR4 on the planet with their new Trident Z RGB kit coming at a blistering 4700MHz, one-upping the already record-fast 4600MHz kit, also made by G.SKILL.




The latest Trident Z RGB kit arrives in a 16GB (8GB x 2) kit packing Samsung's best DDR4 B-die ICs, and tighter timings of CL19-19-19-39 that require 1.45V. G.SKILL's previous Trident Z RGB 4600MHz kit would only work on Intel's latest X299 motherboards at the time, but the new 4700MHz kit will work on the new Z370 chipset from Intel.




G.SKILL hasn't said when their new 4700MHz DDR4 RAM will be available, but we should expect it sometime in Q2 2018.

G.SKILL releases DDR4 Trident Z RGB kit at a huge 4266MHz

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Nov 27, 2017 6:51 am

G.SKILL has just announced the latest in its goal towards being the best RAM manufacturer on the planet, with the new Trident Z RGB series memory kit coming in at 32GB and a huge speed of up to 4266MHz.




G.SKILL is using hand-picked, high-performance Samsung B-die DDR4 IC components that allow their latest G.SKILL Z370 DDR4 Trident Z RGB memory to come in three different flavors. First, we have 16GB and 32GB kits of DDR4-4000 with 17-17-17-37 timings at 1.35V, while the DDR4-4133 kit comes with the same latencies and capacities, but sees the voltage bumped up to 1.4V.


The flagship DDR4-4266MHz kit comes with slightly higher latencies of 17-18-18-38 at 1.45V and only in 32GB (4 x 8GB sticks).


G.SKILL's latest RAM will be available starting in January 2018.

Kingmax release the Zeus Dragon DDR4 memory series

By: Shaun Grimley | More News: RAM | Posted: Nov 16, 2017 10:34 am

In somewhat of a welcomed change, Kingmax have released the Zeus Dragon DDR4 memory series that features absolutely no RGB illumination, and it looks great!




The aluminium alloy heat sink not only acts to dissipate heat efficiently, but the blend of both Eastern and Western style dragon symbols creates an appealing and elegant finish. Kingmax claim that "the luxurious etchings present the superiority of the dragon and display the assertiveness and dignity of royalty".

Samsung increases DRAM production, cheaper prices in 2H 2018

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Nov 2, 2017 12:37 am

Samsung is ramping up its DRAM production, with the company setting itself up to expand two of its DRAM manufacturing plants in Hwasung and Pyeongtaek, both in South Korea.




Samsung will be re-purposing some of its 2D NAND flash at its Hwasung plant, which will then be used to boost DRAM production, which should start in Q1 2018. The Pyeongtaek-based plant is also being refitted, with DRAM manufacturing clean rooms that will be built on the plant's second floor.


But we all want to know when cheaper DDR4 will be here, which is what Samsung is going to be able to offer once DRAM production is up, but don't expect anything until the second half of 2018. The PC industry isn't the only place where increased DRAM production will alleviate shortages, as smartphones and tablets also use lots of DRAM these days. DRAM stock has been depleted over the last 9 months or so, with RAM prices skyrocketing up by to 100%.

G.SKILL launches super-fast 64GB DDR4 SO-DIMM kit

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Oct 29, 2017 4:59 am

G.SKILL doesn't ride in the slow lane, with the company announcing their new Ripjaws series DDR4-3800 RAM kit in SO-DIMM form, the fastest SO-DIMM RAM on the planet.




The new Ripjaws SO-DIMM memory is aimed at mini-ITX gaming PCs, with ASRock's latest X299-E ITX/ac being one of the motherboards that will work with the 32GB kit of SO-DIMM. If you were to mix this with Intel's new flagship Core i9-7980XE, you'll have one of the smallest, and one of the most powerful rigs money can buy.


As for specifications, G.SKILL has their new Ripjaws DDR4 SO-DIMM kits in three different speeds: 3200MHz, 3600MHz, and 3800MHz. They all come with different timings, with the 3200MHz and 3600MHz kits coming in at 16-16-16-36 while the 3800MHz kit is slightly higher with 18-18-18-38. Something to take note of, the 3200MHz kit can be purchased in a huge 64GB kit if you need it.

G.SKILL amps RGB RAM with new 32GB DDR4-4266MHz kits

By: Derek Strickland | More News: RAM | Posted: Oct 13, 2017 7:36 pm

G.SKILL has supercharged its new enthusiast-grade TridentZ RGB RAM kits with big capacities to match the 4000MHz+ frequency speeds.




G.SKILL today announced the fastest 32GB RGB RAM kit on the market with its new TridentZ DDR4 configuration. The kit, which is yet another example of G.SKILL constantly pushing the RAM bar further, includes 4x 8GB modules clocked at 4266MHz with CL19-23-23-43 timings and 1.4V of power draw. And of course each module is flavored with scintillating prismatic flux via RGB lighting, adding a splash of beauty to any build.


As company the touts, this RAM breakthrough was achieve just a week after Intel's 8th gen Core processors and the new Z370 chipset motherboards came to market. The new 32GB TridentZ RGB DDR4-4266 kit was stress tested on an ASUS ROG Maximus X Hero motherboard alongside a new Intel Core i5-8600K CPU.
