With 15 years of storage experience under its belt, Silicon Power will finally branch out next year into the highly competitive gaming market. With the launch of the brand's Xpower Turbine RGB DDR4 memory kits announced today, the Taiwan-based manufacturer aims to captivate eSports professional players and gaming enthusiasts.
Xpower Turbine RGB DDR4 modules are built with a 10-layer PCB and rely on a low-profile metallic heatsink for passive cooling. With a height of 37mm, there should be minimum compatibility issues with large air CPU coolers. The modules are also equipped with controllable RGB lighting that is supported on the majority of motherboards including Asus' Aura Sync, Gigabyte's RGB Fusion, MSI's Mystic Light Sync and ASRock's Polychrome Sync ecosystems.
