We took a ride זיכרון Definitely special - the XPG D80 has different aesthetic properties than the rest
In the last three years, the desktop computer market has changed to a new fashion. Plastic and Plexiglas are not enough - the user wants a computer that will not only be strong but will also look good. It began In cases with glass doors, he continued with fans containing colored LEDs and light bulbs, and today RGB is simply found in every possible hardware component. Even my drives SSD Some today there are colored lights.
The product in this review we have seen Already at the CES exhibition in January. The prototype seemed a bit odd and intriguing but not very nice and did not attract too much attention. Now, the advanced memory is well dressed and as a finished product lands in markets all over the world.
Get to know XPG D80 - the liquid-cooled memory
there are A large number of models This memory is DDR4. It comes in a dual channel (two sticks) or a square channel for Intel's super-AMD. The model we received for the review contains two sticks, each with an 8GB volume and a speed of 3600Mhz. This speed is considered too fast for most platforms AMD And therefore it is possible to consider the evaluation as being suitable mainly for Intel.
The memory timings are CL17-18-18-39. These are fairly reasonable timing, as a large part of existing 3600Mhz systems come with CL18-18-18-40 timings and north of it. It is also very important to note that ADATA makes use of the most advanced memory components on the market here known as B-die's סמסונג. These are the chips that are capable of reaching peak speeds and manufacturers choose them only for the most advanced systems. These chips are relatively compact and in practice they are printed only on one side of each stick זיכרון.
The heat sink of this memory consists of aluminum on its sides in the shape of a fan. The upper part contains liquid. The same fluid exists in a beautiful quantity in the translucent capsule at the top of the memory. Below this capsule there is a series of colored LEDs that you will see in action later on. ADATA does not specifically specify what liquid Cooling This is, but if I have to guess, it is probably a liquid similar to M3's Novec. It is a transparent vegetable oil. It does not conduct electricity but also conducts heat.
Our test system
- Core i7 8700K 3.7Ghz
- Gigabyte Z370 Ultra Gaming
- ADATA SP610 512GB SSD
Before some performance tests - here's the D80 in a fashion show.
Here are some more תמונות Stills from the testing system:
This is definitely a unique memory in his appearance. Light through the special liquid gives a different aesthetic than what we usually see from different memory producers. Highly recommended for those who want more vibrant colors.
Performance tests - זיכרון Fast vs. Slow
Here are some of our performance tests for this memory. We compared the speed with which it reaches others and is more standard in the market.
These are the two profiles built into the memory in question. One has a runtime of 3600Mhz and the other 2667Mhz with appropriate values. The AIDA64 memory performance test shows the speed differences between these two modes. The read speed in the fast mode is 50GB compared to 37GB "only" in the 2667Mhz mode. The access time between the CPU and the memory is 49 nanoseconds in the faster mode and 53.7 nanoseconds in the slower mode.
For comparison, this seems to be memory DDR4 At a basic speed of 2133Mhz and completely CL15-15-15-35 timings. The read speed decreases to 31GB per second and access time increases to 61.4 nanoseconds.
Winrar's built-in compression test is excellent for visualizing differences in speed between Processors And different memories. The next test is actually a game running on the built-in graphics core of the CPU,Core i7 8700K.
Out of curiosity I ran this test. This test includes running the game GTA V on minimum settings at FullHD resolution. I have to admit in general that I am surprised by the amazing level of optimization they have done to the game. The image quality is slightly lower than what you will see on the console Playstation 4 (but higher than 3, it is important to note) but the game is quite worn without using an external video card at all.
עם זיכרון Definitely quick that the experience has improved for the better. I do not expect any reader to run a system with such advanced memories and no video card, but this is an experiment I have wanted to do for a long time and share with you. Of course, when your loyal servant has more serious built-in graphics chip-based systems, the issue will be examined in depth again.
It is clear that the emphasis in this series of memory is the special aesthetic. The D80 is a kit for connoisseurs who want beauty alongside speed with select chips that can be even faster, Cooling Super-advanced, although not necessarily needed but good to have,RGB The Witches.
The cost is not particularly cheap compared to sticks זיכרון Normal but lower than the competition. זיכרון With similar characteristics at the speed of competing companies such as the Trident-Z RGB Will cost you about $ 255. Evaluation of ADATA Is priced at only $ 235. Thus, you pay on similar hardware, with a slightly different price and lower appearance. Not bad, not bad at all.

Remember these medals? We decided that they would make a comeback. We like some color in our awards and these great heritage medallions with a variety of products. We will happily commemorate this award with our recommended star. The memory kit recommendation spectrum is for those who want a combination of speed, design, and capabilities The fast Potentiality. If you are the one who nods to these three - you have our recommendation.
