XPG's Caster series DDR5 memory modules promise fast data rates and tight CL timings
XPG has just revealed their CASTOR series of DDR5 memory modules, promising their users speeds of up to 7,000 MT/s, RGB and non-RGB module options and per module capacities of 16 GB.
With their CASTER series of DDR5 memory modules, XPG's offering their users speeds of 6,000 MT/s, 6,400 MT/s and 7,000 MT/s. The company has listed their 6,000 MT/s modules as having CL40-40-40 timings, while their 6,400 MT/s modules feature tighter CL36-36-36 timings. Sadly, the timings of XPG's 7,000 MT/s modules remain unknown.
With DDR5 memory, users gain access to tremendous boosts in overall memory bandwidth, delivering more data per transfer while also transferring data at a much higher rate. DDR5 can deliver blazing-fast data transfer speeds, making DDR5 ideal for a variety of workloads.
XPG targets their CASTOR series of DDR5 modules at "Gamers, Esports Pros, and Tech Enthusiasts". These modules support Intel's XMP 3.0 technology, and high-end Power Management Integrated Circuits (PMIC) to offer users enhanced stability.
XPG has also confirmed that the company has new HUNTER series DDR5 memory modules in the works, succeeding their HUNTER DDR4 DRAM products with 5,200 MT/s speeds and a new heatsink design.
What follows is XPG's Press Release for their new CASTOR series of DDR5 memory modules.
DDR5 memory availability is set to improve significantly in early 2022, though it will be awhile before DDR5 becomes as affordable and widely available as DDR4.
PR - XPG Unveils CASTER Series DDR5 DRAM
XPG, a fast-growing provider of systems, components, and peripherals for Gamers, Esports Pros, and Tech Enthusiasts, today announces the XPG CASTER DDR5 DRAM series. The XPG CASTER, which comes with and without RGB lighting, is rated for 7000 MT/s and comes equipped with On-Die EEC and PMIC for enhanced stability and reliability. Both the RGB and non-RGB variants feature capacities of 16GB.
Running at 7000 MT/s, the XPG CASTER is a new breed of DDR5 that is over two times faster than standard DDR4 DRAM. With blazing-fast data transfer rates, users will enjoy a smoother and seamless gaming experience. With support for Intel® XMP 3.0, overclocking is incredibly and straightforward. It allows users to avoid cumbersome BIOS settings and never-ending adjustment of overclocking parameters.
The XPG CASTER series is also equipped with built-in On-Die EEC for real-time error correction and Power Management Integrated Circuits (PMIC) for enhanced stability and reliability.
With their steel gray heat sinks, bold triangular RGB light , and streamlined shapes, XPG CASTER series DRAM exude a sense of speed, sophistication, and futuristic styling. Users can set the RGB lighting1 the way they want it. They can choose from different effects (static, breathing, and comet) or sync the lights with their favorite songs via Music Mode. All this can be done through RGB control software from all the major motherboard brands.
All-New XPG HUNTER DDR5
In addition to the XPG CASTER series DDR5 DRAM, XPG will also launch the all-new XPG HUNTER DDR5 DRAM later this year. This new module is the successor to the XPG HUNTER DDR4 DRAM and offers upgraded performance of 5200MT/s and a refreshed heat sink design.
