Team Group released a new kit of RGB memory with an astounding 6400 MHz speed rating. As part of their T-FORCE line of gaming-oriented memory, the new DELTA RGB is the first memory officially released to break the 6000 MHz barrier. Even amidst component shortages, we managed to get our hands on this rare memory. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about this new product launch from Team Group and show you what it can do when overclocked.
The new era of DDR memory is upon us. All of the DDR memory up until this point has been based on the same general architecture. Other than increased bandwidth, DDR memory hasn’t changed much since the beginning. The new DDR5 standard has been designed from the ground up and is fundamentally different from all computer memory before it. ADATA was kind enough to send us their newest release. We’re excited to get a hands-on experience with DDR5 and give you the full rundown of what’s new.
The XPG product line from ADATA has a new family member in the newly released SPECTRIX D45G DDR4 modules. They’re a strong offering in the RGB memory space with high XMP ratings and budget-conscious price tags. It seems like just yesterday that an XMP rating of 4400 MHz would cost you upwards of $300, and that was without the added RGB element. But today’s review item offers that speed at a super-competitive price point of just $149.99. We obtained a test sample, and we’re going to put this budget memory to the test.
Intel’s newly released Z590 chipset offers a few advancements over previous platforms, but perhaps the most influential is its memory overclocking capabilities. The changes Intel made to the memory controller frequency, have enabled companies like G.Skill to offer XMP ratings of 4800 MHz and above for mainstream motherboards. Today we’re testing and overclocking one such newly released product. The Trident Z Royal Elite comes with a whopping 5066 MHz XMP rating. We’re pretty excited to show you G.Skill’s latest release, so follow along as we break down what we liked and didn’t like.
If you’ve read our recent memory reviews, then you know we’ve been exploring the performance and overclocking characteristics of Samsung-based dual-rank memory modules. It’s been an enlightening dive down the performance rabbit hole, but the high price of those kits means that they’re out of reach for the average user. So, are dual-rank memory kits only for those with deep pockets? The new XPOWER Zenith kit from Silicon Power proves that you can have 32 GB of dual-rank magic and have money left to spend elsewhere.
Last December we reviewed G.Skill’s acclaimed Samsung B-Die-based dual-rank performance memory kit. Today, it remains one of the best performing kits on the market, but there’s a new challenger to the dual-rank 2 x 16 GB throne. Team Group quietly released their own ultra-performance Samsung B-Die-based dual-rank kit. The Team Group T-Force XTREEM ARGB is rated for 3600 MHz at shockingly low primary timings of CL14-15-15.
ADATA has a new flagship elite-level SSD out and we managed to get our hands on it. Announced at CES 2020 and finally released now, the XPG Gammix S70 boasts one of the fastest NVMe speed ratings within the market today. It’s not just about crazy Crystal Disk Mark speeds, ADATA equipped the S70 with a radical finned heat sink to keep the drive cool and always performing at its maximum potential. Furthermore, they managed to get this drive to the market with performance-competitive pricing. We’re pretty excited about the potential for this drive so join us as we give you the product tour and put it to the test for you.
G.Skill recently released a few new special kits of DDR4 that feature super-fast XMP profiles and including one that is dual rank. Within the enthusiast PC community, there’s been a whole lot of buzz about dual-rank memory modules and how they offer superior performance for some benchmarks and games. Simply put, this means there are ICs on both sides of the memory PCB for better interleaving and thus better performance. We reached out to G.Skill and they sent us their new dual-rank flagship product, the unbelievably fast 2 x 16 GB 4000 CL16-19-19 Trident Z Royal.
With DDR5 on the horizon, we have entered into the final phase of DDR4 DRAM IC production. Lately, speedy XMP profiles have emerged such as 4400 CL16 and 3800 CL14, which are a far cry from the early days of DDR4. Not to be out shadowed, companies like Micron and SK Hynix have been pushing the high-frequency limit and making great advancements there as well. Today we have the opportunity to test one such memory kit that’s pushing the high-frequency limits. ADATA sent us their Spectrix D50 Extreme, which has an incredible XMP rating of 5000 MHz CL19.
Modern games and applications are consuming more system memory than ever before. In recent years we’ve seen an increase from 8GB to 16GB and now even 32 GB is required in some titles for optimal game performance. Today we’re looking at a new 2 x 32 GB DDR4 offering from Team Group. The T-Force Vulcan Z is a budget-conscious product line targeted towards gaming enthusiasts. It was recently expanded to include a density option of 32 GB in a single stick. Team Group is known for delivering excellent price/performance, so join us as we see if this memory meets the status quo.
