GeIL add the Super Luce RGB Lite Series to their range

By: Shaun Grimley | More News: RAM | Posted: Sep 20, 2017 10:55 am

GeIL today announced the Super Luce RGB Lite DDR4 memory range. If you're a fan of GeIL products, you may remember that GeIL have recently released the Super Luce RGB Sync variant. These modules are practically identical with only a few subtle differences.




There is no software support for The Super Luce RGB Lite, this means you can't customize your RGB LED settings and are locked with the manufactures preset lighting. The Super Luce RGB Sync supported a cable that connected to your motherboard, allowing customization via software.


As for performance, as expected they're identical. Both feature single and dual-channel kits up to 32GB (2x16GB), speeds of DDR4-2133MHz to DDR4-3200MHz and are available in black and white finish. Backed with lifetime warranty, GeIL also offer AMD variants of the Super Luce RBG line up for those AMD Ryzen builds.

ADATA has just unveiled its latest kit of DDR4 memory, debuting the XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4 kit, and yes - it features glorious RGBs.




ADATA's new XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4 kit comes in speeds of between 2400MHz and 4000MHz, making it perfect for your new enthusiast/high-end gaming PC, including the new X299 chipset from Intel. SPECTRIX D40 adds in that RGB awesome sauce on top of the DDR4 RAM being available at up to 4000MHz, making it perfect for those who need it super-fast, but not want to lose out on looks.




The XPG team worked with Intel to make sure the new SPECTRIX D40 was ready for X299, with the SPECTRIX D40 SPD (serial presence detect) settings work with Intel XMP 2.0, making sure that the RAM is running at their intended clock speeds, and not lower due to no XMP 2.0 support. ADATA has also used 10-layer PCBs, two ounces of pure copper and heat sinks made from aluminum alloy. This isn't a half-baked DDR4 kit, that's for sure.


You can also use the new ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D40 with ASUS Aura Sync, lightning up your entire system (if you have the right parts) beautifully.
