LOTS OF… COLORFUL NEW MEMORY
Memory technology hasn’t really progressed in recent years. DDR4 is still essentially the same DDR4 we saw last year, and will see again next year. That didn’t stop the memory vendors from releasing a ton of new models though, with RGB-flavoured modules being all the rage in every booth and in almost every modded system across the entire show floor.
The GeIl Super Luce RGB Sync looked amazing with its white RGB theme. Geil also showed a prototype unnamed module with a mirror like chrome finish. Lovely!
G.Skill always has a full range of memory on display, including this year the Trident-X RGB Royal . It looks very similar to other G.Skill RGB RAM but features a crystalline covering that has a shimmering effect. It’s fast, too, with speeds of up to DDR4-4266.
Adata’s Spectrix D80 with its water cooling option looked amazing, and it performs too. In fact Adata had several lovely XPG kits on display.
We visited Crucial to have a chat, and while it didn’t reveal anything new, we did talk about the new TUF Gaming Alliance. This is an Asus program that brings together a lot of different vendors to ensure compatibility and matching aesthetics.
Of course there’s the Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB memory which combines speed with great looks and this is perhaps the one we expect to have the greatest success.
