GIGABYTE Outs AORUS RGB Memory with AORUS Memory Boost Feature

GIGABYTE expanded its AORUS RGB DDR4 memory family with two new kits that introduce a proprietary performance enhancement dubbed AORUS Memory Boost. Exclusive to GIGABYTE's AORUS-branded motherboards (listed below), and requiring a BIOS update to use, AORUS Memory Boost is a toggle that runs the memory at a clock-speed and timing combination that's a notch above its highest Intel XMP profile. For example, the memory kits debuting with the feature today feature an XMP 2.0 profile for DDR4-3600. Flicking on AORUS Memory Boost runs them at DDR4-3733, in essence making it an additional memory profile that's exclusive to GIGABYTE motherboards.

The memory kits being launched today are GP-AR36C18S8K2HU416R and GP-AR36C18S8K2HU416RD. The former is 2x 8 GB (16 GB) dual-channel, while the latter is 2x 8 GB (16 GB) with two dummy modules. These dummy modules fill up vacant DIMM slots, look and light up like real modules, and could boost the aesthetics of your build without having you spend on two additional real modules. Out of the box, the memory modules (real ones) in these kits run at DDR4-2667 with 19-19-19-43 on Intel processors and 20-19-19-43 on AMD ones. The included DDR4-3600 XMP profile has timings of 18-19-19-39. GIGABYTE didn't mention how AORUS Memory Boost affects timings. Out of the box, the module voltage is 1.2 V, and the XMP profile dials it up to 1.35 V. The dummies work with whatever module voltage you specify in the BIOS, and interface with GIGABYTE RGB Fusion software. The company didn't reveal pricing.
