No C-Beams Glittering Here
If you are (im)patiently awaiting the arrival of your Ryzen 3 chip, or just have it sitting on your wish list, you may well also be looking for some new DDR4 to go with it. GeIL would like you to consider their line of Orion DDR4 specifically designed to work with AMD processors and is available in frequencies ranging from 2666MHz, 3000MHz, 3200MHz, 3600MHz, to 4000MHz. The specific kit being reviewed at Modders Inc is the 16GB DDR4-3200 with timings of 16-18-18-36.
The testbed used is comprised of a AMD Ryzen 9 3900x on a ASRock B550 Extreme 4 and they test it against G.SKILL’s Flare X of the same frequency. Performance was as expected but that wasn’t why it got the Must Have Award. The simplicity of setting the frequency in the UEFI is where this kit really shined, it is truly just plug and play. The other nice thing is the price, currently running just under $60.
