With memory prices continuing to plummet, now is a great time to be looking for memory upgrades. There is competition from both Intel and AMD, and the Red brand has thoroughly fixed the memory issues of generations past. No longer do users have to worry about memory compatibility or shopping for expensive AMD-branded kits. With 3200 MHz natively supported on the new Ryzen platform, options for enthusiasts have never been more open. Thermaltake is best known for their cases and power supplies, but the brand has expanded a great deal to include both AIO and custom liquid coolers, peripherals, and even desks and chairs. The company has put a particular emphasis on developing comprehensive, user-friendly RGB solutions with broad compatibility and control options. Thermaltake brought that RGB expertise into the memory space with the Thermaltake TOUGHRAM RGB and is now expanding it with the new Thermaltake TOUGHRAM XG RGB!
The Thermaltake TOUGHRAM XG RGB comes in speeds of up to 4600 MHz and capacities of up to 16 GB (2x 8 GB). To aid in both appearance and performance, the Thermaltake TOUGHRAM XG RGB also features an aluminium heat spreader with a sleek dual-tone finish. Finally, it boasts software certifications with all four major motherboard vendors, as well as Thermaltake’s own comprehensive software. If you have ever wished you could synchronize your RGB memory with Alexa voice commands over a voice compatible controller, Thermaltake has you covered. With ever-increasing flexibility and control, this is an amazing time to be a lighting enthusiast.
The Thermaltake TOUGHRAM XG RGB kit I have for testing today features a Ryzen-optimized XMP profile: 16 GB (2x 8 GB) of 3600 MHz memory at 18-19-19-39 and 1.35 V. With a new aesthetic and promising RGB from a well-known brand, all that is left is to see how it performs.
