There is a long trend in marketing to latch on to a trending idea and use it relentlessly regardless of whether it relates to a given product or not. The most notorious in the hardware industry is the adding of "gaming" to anything and everything. These "gaming" optimized products often feature bold color schemes and radical marketing friendly names and, in recent years, a liberal application of RGB LEDs.
To be clear, I am not against having products with distinctive looks, nor do I really mind the overuse of "gaming" in marketing as that is the target audience. However, I do find it refreshing when I come across a product that is advertised as exactly what it is. The XPG SPECTRIX D60G is just such a product.
The XPG SPECTRIX D60G is a "DDR4 RGB Memory" kit; it says so right on the front of the box. This is a memory kit that has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate RGB LED solution for the memory market. The XPG SPECTRIX D60G has more RGB lighting per square millimeter than any other memory module on the market, and a massive "diamond cut" diffuser to show it off.
It's not all about looks, though. No matter how pretty a kit, performance has to be there to match. The XPG SPECTRIX D60G comes in speeds of up to 4133 MHz, with my two kits coming in at 3200 MHz. I now need to find out if the XPG SPECTRIX D60G can truly outshine the competition.
