ADATA’s Extreme Performance Gear (XGP) product line is catered toward tech enthusiasts looking for high -performance gaming hardware. Now introducing the Spectrix D50 DDR4 which will be capable of speeds up to 4800MHz. Most importantly for some people in today’s Pc building world, it’s all about the “Look good feel good” type of vibe. Fortunately, the Spectrix D50 DDR4 is equipped with the latest in RGB technology and a sleek appearance.
XGP has a big line up of RAM but the D50 is designed for the tech-heads who like to tweak their settings. In this case, we are testing model number # AX4U360038G18A-DT50 XPG DDR4 D50 RGB 16GB (2x8GB) 3600MHz PC4-28800 U-DIMM Desktop 288-Pins Memory CL18-20-20 2 piece set priced at $94.99. It supports both Intel and AMD depending on your processor of choice. On the Intel side, it works with XMP 2.0 which allows you to overclock without having to restart and go into the BIOS every test. During this test, we did not overclock it past the XMP 2.0 setting which produced some amazing benchmarks we will share in a later video comparing RAM at this price point.
Not only is the MHz fast on this set but its RAM socket is PC4 with a transfer rate of 28800MB/s. Its fast RAM all the way around perfect for someone who is looking to build a desktop to play AAA titles at max settings. On the video editing side if you are looking to edit anything above 4k resolution or use heavy motion effects/particles in After Effects you might want to look at upgrading to a 32GB set. If you’re a gamer creating live streaming content or postproduction game footage videos 16GB is your sweet spot and you should never have issues for anything under 4k resolution.
I think the hype about the D50 is the design and appearance. It’s sleek sporting a 1.95mm tungsten Grey heat sink, It is a really clean design. Its RBG panel is robust stretching across the entire module and even adding a triangular viewpoint on the sides. It’s a ton of lighting for a RAM stick! You can tune your lighting between 3 RGB modes which include static, breathing, comet, and as a bonus you can also set it to sync with your sound. ADATA’s XPG RGB Sync app or RGB software from any major motherboard brand will allow you to adjust your RGB settings with ease. I do think we can do a bit more than only 3 settings for RGB lighting effects right now but I am sure it’s on the way.
I look at this product for more of the hard-core PC builders who are not only concerned with performance but want to maximize the style of their PC build. You can find RAM with almost identical stats at a marginally cheaper price point, but will you not get this type of design. Here is a price list for the SPECTRIX D50 DDR4 RGB Memory Module.
