G.SKILL Flare X DDR4 Review
     Mon, Sep 11 2017 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The release of Ryzen quickly prompted G.SKILL to revive the Flare branding (as Flare X) to give consumers out the box high-performance and stability for their new AMD system. Available in 2133MHz/2400MHz/3200MHz in various dual or quad channel kits in up to 64GB capacities (quad channel support for the AMD ThreadRipper CPUs

HyperX Alloy Elite Review
     Fri, Sep 08 2017 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The model in for testing today isn’t exactly a direct evolution of the Alloy FPS, though it does carry over a similar style. We’ve now got dedicated media controls, along with a volume-roller, a novel new light-strip along the top of the keyboard, handy buttons for lighting and gaming controls and a wrist rest for added comfort. On paper, the additions certainly sound good, and at only £20 more than the Alloy FPS, it seems to represent good value.

ADATA Debuts XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4
     Mon, Aug 28 2017 | 12:33P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

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.

SPECTRIX D40 modules integrate a multi-color RGB lighting element in the heatsink 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.

www.pcstats.com

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 heatsinks 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.

     Fri, Aug 25 2017 | 10:59P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to memory, Kingston is one of the first names people bring up. HyperX is Kingston’s high-performance division, that focus’s developing the best peripherals for gamers and users that demad the best performance. They are constantly updating their product line to meet the needs of gamers and enthusiasts. When a new chipset is released, HyperX is always found on the motherboard’s compatibility list. When Ryzen came out, there were many issues with memory compatibility, however HyperX was one of the first to be fully certified. We take a look at the HyperX Predator DDR4 3200MHz memory kit on an AMD Ryzen system and an Intel Kaby Lake system to see how it performs.

HyperX Predator DDR4 Review
     Fri, Aug 25 2017 | 3:59P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By default, HyperX have made their Predator DDR4 conform to the JEDEC 2400MHz CL17 standard, rather than 2133MHz CL15, do even if you do not go into the BIOS to enable the XMP setting, you will be sat at a higher frequency than what is commonly found, and you will of course have the peace of mind of a lifetime warranty backed by those awesome HyperX guys.

Team Group T-Force Delta RGB 2x 8 GB DDR4
     Fri, Aug 25 2017 | 3:12P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Team Group's Delta RGB is one of the best memory kits we ever tested. They are the perfect match for your ASUS ROG motherboard with ASUS Aura Sync. Offering full top-to-bottom RGB LED goodness when installed into a case, these sticks provide an ultra-wide viewing angle for their Force Flow RGB LEDs, making them perhaps the best RGB option for those non-standard-layout case designs.

Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4-3000C15 32GB Review
     Thu, Aug 24 2017 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Vengeance RGB modules Corsair has some seriously good looking DRAM modules on the market. The customer receives an RGB illumination, which in combination with the black heatspreader, looks rather compelling. Apart from that the specs are interesting as well and DDR4-3000 should add a little performance.

GeIL EVO X DDR4-3200 16GB Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Aug 18 2017 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As we’ve said before 2017 seems to be the year of RGB, almost all parts of our PC’s now come with RGB options. One of the first company’s to come out with RGB memory was GeIL. Their EVO X DDR4 kits really pushed the envelope and many other memory makers followed suit. While this kits are a little older they are still a great choice when adding RGB lighting to the inside of your case and their performance is quite good as well. Today we will be checking out the GEX416GB3200C16DC kit which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit operating at 3200 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V. Let’s take a look at this kit and see if it adds the extra bling to our system that we were looking for!"

Ballistix Sport LT 16GB DDR4 SODIMM Memory Kit Review
     Thu, Aug 17 2017 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Besides the small performance bump in the encoding/rendering productivity applications, we have also seen lower loading times in various memory hungry games such as Forza after the upgrade and the stuttering was gone. One other aspect is that by using a larger memory quantity, we will also decrease the wear from the boot drive (a usage example would be working with a larger project in Adobe Premiere). Even if the RAM did run at the same frequency as before, the speed bump is mainly due to the switch from a single-channel (stock) configuration to a dual-channel."

Toshiba EXCERIA PRO M501 MicroSDXC Card Review
     Wed, Aug 16 2017 | 1:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The EXCERIA PRO M501 card from Toshiba has proven itself as being one of the speediest from the bunch we have tested so far, succeeding to even surpass the Lexar Professional 1800x read speeds in some usage environments. Write-wise however, the Lexar Professional distances itself quite a bit, offering speeds around 197MB/s, while the EXCERIA PRO M501 can go up to 130MB/s when writing large files, very close to the rated manufacturer speeds."

.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3000 32GB
     Wed, Aug 16 2017 | 12:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As of today there are quite a lot of different DDR4 RGB memory options out there. Out of all of them one really stands out and it is the kit we see most often in new builds, it is G.Skill’s Trident Z RGB DDR4 memory. G.Skill has taken their already popular Trident Z memory and added a controllable RGB light bar to the top. This combination makes for a great light show inside of your case and is a great compliment to the RGB LEDs that might already be on your motherboard, graphics card, CPU cooler, and LED strip. Today we will be taking a look at the F4-3000C15Q-32GTZR kit, which is a 32 GB kit running at DDR4-3000 speeds with timings of 15-16-16-35 at 1.35V. Are these the ultimate RGB DDR4 modules? Read on as we find out!"

Crucial memory products are unique compared to the majority out there because of one simple fact. They actually make their own RAM. The Crucial brand is owned by Micron and Micron makes the memory chips themselves. When you see RAM from companies such as Kingston, Corsair, ADATA, etc. They are all using DRAM chips made by one of three manufacturers

Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0
     Fri, Aug 04 2017 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the extremely small size and the ability to connect via USB 3.0 and microUSB, the Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 is definitely a handy little flash drive to carry around. If your mobile device supports USB OTG (On-The-Go) you will be able to sync or backup your files with ease, and perhaps you could use it to free up some valuable storage space on your phone or tablet.
