Memory

GIGABYTE last year entered the memory market with its Aorus RGB and GIGABYTE-branded DIMMs, designed for enthusiasts. To some degree the project was experimental with conservative DDR4-2666 and DDR4-3200 speed bins built on Samsung B-die ICs, typically known for much higher performance. At CES the company introduced faster Aorus RGB DIMMs that not only top at DDR4-4000, but do so using SK Hynix C-die ICs.. In the near future GIGABYTE plans to add DDR4-3600 at CL18 and DDR4-4000 16 GB (2 × 8 GB) dual-channel kits to its Aorus RGB Memory lineup. The modules feature regular 1.35 V voltage for enthusiast-class DIMMs, they are also outfitted with XMP 2.0-enabled SPDs for one-click overclocking beyond JEDEC specifications, and they are equipped with aluminum heat spreaders with...
