Today we're reviewing a high-performance memory kit from Kingston Technology. The HyperX Predator DDR4 modules are part of Kingston's HyperX - Gaming series of products, which are unique products that have been created specifically with gamers and computer power users in mind. We've got our hands on the 4600 MHz CL16-26-26 kit and plan on giving it a thorough review from an overclocking perspective. So join us as we give you the grand tour of this memory and show you what makes it worth considering for your next purchase.
Crucial developed the Ballistix MAX series of DDR4 memory for gamers and performance enthusiasts looking to push beyond standard limits. Composed of the highest-quality memory ICs, the Ballistix MAX was born with overclocking and high-performance computing in mind. With overclocking at the core, the Ballistix MAX series has been optimized to work with both AMD and Intel platforms. Read on further to see what we find.
So the year is 2021, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has already landed, showing us that 32GB of RAM could now be the new "sweet spot" for gamers moving forward, not to mention for those who use their machines for work and play. So it begs the question, is 64GB really all that overkill now that gamers are transitioning to 32GB? Remember, it is not so different from when 16GB was the sweet spot and people considered 32GB to be overkill, well look where we are now. However running 64GB has been known to come at a price. Not just what comes out of your wallet, but we are also talking performance. As 64GB Kits come in a kit of 4x DIMM Modules arrangement (sometimes more), it has been well documented that running a 64GB kit a its maximum rated XMP ratings and beyond that can be much more difficult due to additional stress on the CPU's memory controller. We figured it was time to delve into this topic to see if you can run 64GB and maintain performance. We reached out to TeamGroup who were kind enough to send us a 64GB Kit of XTREEM ARGB 4000 CL18 just for this purpose. Read on to see what we find.
Back in June of 2018, Corsair launched the Vengeance RGB Pro line of DDR4 modules. That product line was targeted at budget gamers and became popular because of its excellent price/performance for being RGB memory. If you didn't have deep pockets to get the Dominator series, then the Vengeance RGB Pro was your best bet within Corsair's product line. That memory, which is now iconic in the computer world, just got a makeover. Today we are reviewing the Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro SL, in black. Join us as we check out this memory and give you a full product tour.
In September, Team Group released a new product line that's targeted at creators. You might be used to seeing T-Force branded items from Team Group, but their new line is T-Create. They are marketing this line to content creators and creative professionals, but what exactly does that mean? Follow along and we'll give you a product tour with performance overclocking and attempt to answer that question for you.
Team Group has made a name for itself by delivering new and innovative designs for memory and storage solutions. Today we're taking a look an older DDR4 kit of theirs, but it's interesting to us primarily because it's the fastest kit they offer. In recent year's we've seen the gold standard for Samsung based memory modules increase from 4000 MHz all the way up to 4800 MHz in terms of XMP rating. The T-Force Xtreem doesn't fuss around with flashy RGB LED's, instead, the series delivers a super high-quality aluminum heat sink with speedy XMP ratings all the way up to 4500 MHz. We already hinted that they are Samsung based, but follow along as we put this memory to the test and see what kind of overclock profiles are possible.
Crucial developed the Ballistix MAX series of DDR4 memory for gamers and performance enthusiasts looking to push beyond standard limits. Composed of the highest-quality memory ICs, the Ballistix MAX was born with overclocking and high-performance computing in mind. Being Crucial's highest-tier DDR4 offering, our interest was peaked, to say the least. We've obtained a test sample of this memory and we're going to put it to the ultimate test. Join us as we overclock this memory and give you a full product tour.
There's as new breed of ultra-premium computer components that come with inflated price tags, but in return they add a bit of extravagance to an otherwise mundane computer build. We've got our hands on just such a product up for review today. Corsair recently released the Dominator Platinum RGB, in white. They released a similar line in 2019, but this newly enhanced 2020 version defines what premium computer memory can be. Follow along as we put this new version to the test and show you what makes it an ultra-premium kit of memory.
In December of 2019 Team Group released the T-Force Xtreem ARGB memory modules. This addition to the company’s gaming memory lineup features a radical new design with a mirrored heat spreader that is also opaque and illuminated from behind. In the modern DDR4 arena, companies are constantly breaking new ground with design elements to attract customers. They’ve done enough to attract our attention, but we’d also like to know how the memory performs. Beyond just a flashy exterior, the T-Force Xtreem ARGB modules were designed to be fully compatible with both AMD and Intel platforms. Today we will be reviewing this new offering from Team Group and putting it to the test with overclocking.
Similar to the launch of Ryzen 3000 series, the newly released Threadripper 3 series introduces greatly enhanced memory overclocking capabilities. To test out thees new overclocking capabilities, Corsair sent us a kit of their popular Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory modules. Using the new Threadripper 3970X CPU, we will evaluate the performance of this memory and investigate its strengths and weaknesses. Originally intended for Intel platforms, the Vengeance LPX will be put to the ultimate compatibility test on the TRX40 platform.
