ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today announces that the XPG SPECTRIX D80 DDR4 memory module has been honored with an iF Design Award 2019 for product design excellence.
The SPECTRIX D80 features a liquid heatsink on its top side that benefits from a non-conductive fluid with a low boiling point to dissipate heat. It works in conjunction with an aluminum heatsink and thermally conductive materials on the PCB to offer hybrid cooling. ADATA first introduced a prototype liquid-cooled memory design (“Jellyfish”) during CES 2018 in Las Vegas to much excitement. The XPG SPECTRIX D80 is the realization of the concept’s viability for a commercially available memory module.
Equipped with programmable RGB lighting, the liquid heatsink isn’t just functional, but also visually captivating with the fluid completely illuminated for all to see. Users can customize the lighting effects by setting up patterns, pulse speed, lighting intensity, and more. Lighting control is intuitive with the XPG RGB Sync app, or users can use an existing RGB lighting control software from a major motherboard maker.
Made for avid gamers, DIY enthusiasts, and overclockers, the SPECTRIX D80 provides a wide frequency range from 2666MHz to 4133MHz. Also, preconfigured Intel® XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) 2.0 profiles allow for quick overclocking, doing away with the need for adjusting individual parameters in BIOS. For added reliability and dependability, the module uses high-quality chips chosen through a strict selection process for superior stability, even when operating at high speeds or under heavy loads. Earlier this year, the SPECTRIX D80 was overclocked to 5584MT/s, a new speed record.
