QUOTE: Once upon a time consumer memory kits were plain and boring, with bare RAM modules exposing the sensitive components. Then, in 2003, the Patriot Memory series changed landscape by adding metal heat shields to dissipate heat away from the IC’s. Not only did this add a fresh new look to SDRAM, but it offered stability for overclockers. Fifteen years later, Patriot Memory is still assembling their own SDRAM and evolving the technology. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we examine Patriot’s new Viper RGB DDR4 PC4-25600 3200 MHz gaming memory.
