Introduction

Neo Forza Logo

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 has 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 became an 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 production to exceed the testing benchmark, Neo Forza keeps pushing over technical boundaries, providing top-notch 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 of the kit.


The Neo Forza Mars kit I have for testing today is one of their middle spec kits: 16 GB (2x 8 GB) at 3600 MHz, 18-19-19-39 timings, and 1.35 V. 3600 MHz has become the new gold standard for Ryzen builds, driving new focus into memory kits targeting a previously obscure specification. Let's see how the Neo Forza Mars holds up in this ultra-competitive segment!
