Fans of DDR4 memory modules with fancy lights have another option as ADATA is shipping its XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4 memory. These sticks run at 2666MHz and feature integrated RGB LEDs with ASUS Aura Sync support. Availability is expected by late July or early August.
ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today announced that its upcoming XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4 has been certified compatible with ASUS AURA Sync software. This allows users of ASUS motherboards to personalize the RGB lighting elements built into D40 modules with choice of color range, lighting sequence, and more. SPECTRIX D40 modules have been optimized for the Intel X299 platform with a starting speed of 2666MHz. They are also compatible with AMD AM4 motherboards. Designed for gamers, overclockers, and case modders, SPECTRIX D40 DDR4 modules provide more options and customization features and support the trend towards builds that incorporate sophisticated RGB and LED.
Compatible with ASUS AURA Sync - flexible RGB customization
SPECTRIX D40 DDR4 modules have been fully tested compatible with popular ASUS AURA Sync software. Users of ASUS motherboards can easily control the RGB lighting on D40 modules via a convenient and intuitive interface. RGB effects, color sequence, intensity, on/off and additional features are all accessible to users thanks to guaranteed compatibility with AURA Sync, providing extensive case modding and personalization choices.
Faster baseline on Intel X299 and AMD AM4 support
SPECTRIX D40 modules have an SPD, or serial presence detect, configuration that defaults to speed of 2666MHz on the new Intel X299 platform and compatible processors such as the top-end Core i9 range. This compares favorably to other DDR4 module series that start from a slower 2400MHz. D40 modules are also compatible with the AMD AM4 platform and Ryzen processors.
Considerable overclocking potential
Owing to effective heat spreaders and conductive PCB materials, SPECTRIX D40 modules can be overclocked over 4000MHz on air and with no special cooling solution. Speeds may vary by BIOS and motherboard, but in all cases D40 modules are made for a combination of design and performance, without one coming at the cost of the other.
Currently, SPECTRIX D40 product availability is planned for late July/early August. Additional details will be made available when applicable.
