While Corsair began as a memory maker and branched out into cases and power-supplies, Antec is taking the opposite route, starting out as a case and PSU maker. The company set up the new AntecMemory brand, complete with a new logo. Its first product is the mid-range "5-series," with the possibility of the entry-level 3-series, and high-end 7-series, for sheer driving computing pleasure. The 5-series DDR4 module features either an all-white or black+white heatspreader, with an RGB LED diffuser at a corner. For now, it only comes in 8 GB single-module kits. The module ticks at DDR4-3000, with timings of 16-18-18-36, at 1.35V. There's also an ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance co-branded kit, complete with the urban camo pattern.

It looks like there is money to be made in this market. I was under the assumption that it had thin profit margins.
