PNY reveals their XLR8 series of Gaming DDR5 memory

Today, the PC market has entered the DDR5 era, ushering in a new era where PCs will feature more bandwidth than ever before. Not only are MT/s rates improved with DDR5, the amount of work that can be achieved per transfer has also increased, making DDR5 a true generational leap over DDR4. 

PNY has just revealed their new XLR8 series of gaming DDR5 memory modules, offering gamers RGB and non-RGB modules that feature speeds of up to 5600 MT/s with CAS latencies of 36. These modules offer DDR5 users lower than normal latencies and high DDR5 clock rates. 

PNY has tested their new DDR5 memory modules with motherboard manufacturers like ASUS, MSI, ASRock, and Gigabyte, ensuring that their new memory modules are fully compliant with the latest motherboards. These DRAM modules also feature XMP 3.0 support, allowing Alder Lake users to easily access the performance of these new DRAM modules. 

Speeds of 6,400 MT/s have already been reported by PNY with their XLR8 Gaming MAKO modules, and kits featuring that level of "out of the box performance" are due to be released later this year. 

Below is PNY's press release for their XLR8 MAKO series of DDR5 memory modules.

PR - PNY Announces Specifications and Availability of XLR8 Gaming and Performance DDR5 Desktop Memory

PNY today announces specifications and availability for its upcoming Desktop Performance and XLR8 Gaming DDR5 memory products. The three models include the overclocked XLR8 Gaming MAKO and MAKO RGB models, running at 5600MHz and a CAS latency of 36, as well as the PNY Performance model that follows JEDEC standards.

Unparalleled Design

The XLR8 Gaming MAKO and MAKO RGB modules have been designed to meet the needs of gamers and enthusiasts. The designs for both modules feature aluminum heat spreaders with elements inspired by the powerful, fast and aggressive Mako shark from which they get their name. An XLR8 logo and GAMING text is proudly emblazoned on the side of the module and silver angled relief lines are machined into the heat spreader to reflect other components’ lighting and provide unmatched flair and style.

The MAKO RGB model comes equipped with super bright RGB LEDs which are diffused with a geometric polymer light pipe offering a superior RGB lighting experience. Users will be able to control their module lighting with major motherboard RGB control and sync software, delivering a seamless user experience.

DDR5 for All

PNY is continually developing solutions for all PC users to improve their computing experience and their latest DDR5 models bring that to another level. PC users looking to upgrade to DDR5, but don’t require the additional flair or out-of-the-box overclocking, aluminum heat spreader or RGB illumination of the Mako line, the PNY Performance DDR5 is a great upgrade that takes advantage of the latest in DRAM technology.

Rigorously Tested

PNY has been rigorously testing these modules with its motherboard partners, including ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI, to ensure the most extensive compatibility and aggressive overclocking possible. During the comprehensive testing XLR8 Gaming MAKO modules have been pushed up to 6400MHz. DDR5 kits featuring this “out of the box” overclocked performance will be available in Q4.

As all models are compatible with Intel® XMP 3.0, XLR8 Gaming MAKO is able to deliver extreme overclocking and allows users to easily get the most out of their MAKO DDR5 modules. Top-tier components and select ICs combine to deliver aggressive speed, low latency and the bullet-proof
reliability gamers and enthusiasts rely on PNY for.

With the recent announcement of Intel Alder Lake CPUs, DDR5 will soon become the standard for gamers, enthusiasts and modders for creating the best computing experience. Additional CPU manufacturers are expected to release processors with DDR5 support in 2022.
