ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched XPG SPECTRIX D40 DDR4 with variable and programmable RGB lighting. Based on top-selling XPG Dazzle DDR4 modules, SPECTRIX D40 swaps single-color LED for multi-chromatic RGB. It also ships in speeds from 2400MHz to over 4000MHz, vastly faster than the max 3200MHz on Dazzle. With support for Intel XMP 2.0 and highly efficient cooling, SPECTRIX D40 combines tantalizing RGB aesthetics with raw performance and overclockability, catering to enthusiast gamers, case modding artists, and competitive overclockers. SPECTRIX D40 has also been validated for AMD AM4/Ryzen.
Programmable lighting, over 4000MHz, and Intel X299 optimization for gamers and case modders
Smart RGB lighting with ASUS AURA Sync compatibility
SPECTRIX D40 modules integrate a multi-color RGB lighting element in the heat sink with a pre-set cycle active by default. However, users can control lighting sequence and intensity among other variables via software interfaces. One such app is popular ASUS AURA Sync, supported by all current ASUS motherboards. SPECTRIX D40 includes a controller that has been tested AURA Sync compatible, giving users of ASUS motherboards extensive control over RGB effects, including on/off if desired.
Pushing DDR4 speeds forward
Having reached full maturity, DDR4 continues to improve and SPECTRIX D40 embodies efforts to achieve better performance. Modules are available with a factory overclock of over 4000MHz, and start at 2400MHz. SPECTRIX D40 complies with Intel XMP 2.0 requirements to enable easier and more extreme overclocking. At 4000MHz, modules are effectively twice as fast as entry-level DDR4, resulting in tangible performance gains in applications, from gaming to benchmarking.
Intel X299 optimization
Since SPECTRIX D40 stands as a flagship product, the XPG team worked with Intel to ensure best performance on the similarly premium X299 platform. SPECTRIX D40 SPD (serial presence detect) settings work with Intel XMP 2.0 parameters to ensure memory modules clocked to 2666MHz or higher operate at their intended speed, as opposed to lesser modules that may downclock to 2400MHz or even 2133MHz due to lacking XMP 2.0 support.
Advanced cooling and power management
SPECTRIX D40 modules use meticulously sorted and tested chips plus bespoke ADATA-made 10-layer PCBs and robust circuitry. PCBs incorporate two ounces of pure copper, while heat sinks use aluminum alloy. Heat dissipation efficacy is assured, and power management compensates for the RGB lighting to make sure performance remains stable at all times, even when highly overclocked.
