High performance memory kits have evolved over the last few years, both in styling and technology. Styling has shifted to heavier heat sinks, LED light bars, and fancy RGB control software. The technology has done what it inevitably will by producing greater speeds and densities at generally lower cost as DDR4 has matured. The latest processors and graphics cards have been nearly impossible to get over the last six months, but memory pricing and availability have remained steady. With no end to the global shortages in sight, let's dig into a product you can actually buy at MSRP!
Neo Forza started out as an I/C design house that then turned OEM for a variety of international brands over the past 15 years. Neo Forza possesses strong resources focusing on core technologies. From research and design to specific productions meant to exceed the testing benchmark, Neo Forza keeps pushing over technical boundaries, providing topnotch performance and quality.
Neo Forza has leveraged that extensive experience to streamline their wafer screening process: Each Neo Forza design focuses on a single timing bin for each frequency step across the entire product stack. A Neo Forza 3200 MHz kit will offer the same timings and performance regardless of the naming convention or external appearance.
The Neo Forza Faye is a no-nonsense option for those who eschew the RGB trend for a classic look. The Neo Forza Faye kit I have for testing today is one of their high-end kits: 32 GB (2x 16 GB) at 4400 MHz, 19-26-26-46 timings, and 1.45 V. While 3600 MHz is the sweet spot for Ryzen builds, ultra-high-speed kits still offer great benefits on Intel platforms. So let's see how the Neo Forza Faye performs!
|Tested Capacity:||32 GB (16 GB x2)|
|Tested Voltage:||1.45 V|
|PCB Type:||8 layers|
|Form Factor:||288-pin DIMM|
