The XPG brand has a number of different products for consumers to pick from. The Hunter, GAMMIX, and SPECTRIX lines are their three current highlights for the DDR4 DRAM market. Today, we will be looking closely at a special collaboration between XPG and ASUS.
The SPECTRIX D50 SKUs range from 3600 MT/s to 4133 MT/s, with listed DIMM sizes being 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB. In this review, we will cover the XPG SPECTRIX D50 ROG CERTIFIED RGB 16 GB (2x 8 GB) kit rated for 3600 MT/s. This memory kit was created by taking the successful SPECTRIX D50 SKU and turning it into an ASUS-branded version that is validated on Intel ROG motherboards, designed to provide the best results without having to worry about compatibility issues.
ADATA is one of the largest manufacturers of flash memory and DRAM in the world, with a reach across the globe. Founded in 2001, ADATA has steadily grown into what it is today: a leader in the industry. ADATA has multiple product lines to fit different markets, with the XPG subdivision targeting PC enthusiasts and branded as such.
Even though DDR5 has now reached the consumer market, it is short in supply as early adopters try to make the best of it. While DDR4 manufacturing is slowly winding down, it is still a huge market. As such, the demand is high enough to warrant new products. With steady advancements over the years, with memory kits ranging from the entry 2133 MT/s to a blistering 5066 MT/s, it is no surprise that the XPG brand is looking to continue to serve consumers with solutions to a problem that has been around since the invention of the computer: compatibility. This collaboration allows consumers to enjoy ADATA XPG memory without the need for a motherboard and CPU that are just as "Xtreme" to run it.
The XPG SPECTRIX D50 ROG CERTIFIED RGB 16 GB kit I have for review today follows modest 17-21-21-43 timings at 1.35 V. The XMP profile of 3600 MT/s is ideal for both AMD and Intel platforms, as running its rated frequency requires little intervention. In fact, this memory kit is certified for ASUS ROG Z490 and Z590 branded motherboards.
