Patriot Signature Line DDR4 SODIMM Memory

Even though we spend most of our time looking at fancy and more frequently, flashy, memory kits designed for overclocking and maximum gaming performance, most systems out there don’t need and often can't use the extra abilities of these kits. With most systems locked to a maximum JEDEC speed in the 2133 to 2666 MHz range, kits that are built to hit 3000 or even 4000 MHz and above are simply wasted on a locked platform. While this may be blasphemous to some, most systems don’t have RGB and some people prefer not to have it. Can you imagine how distracting an office at work would be with dozens of machines lit up like a disco? When you don’t want or need all the bling and OC headroom, Patriot’s Signature Line of memory has you covered. Today we’ll be looking at a pair of SODIMM’s made for laptops and other portable or small form-factor systems.

GeIL Super Luce RGB Sync DDR4 Gaming Memory

Almost three and a half years ago GeIL’s Super Luce memory was one of the first LED-equipped memory modules to do something besides just light up.  The iLuce Thermal-Beaming technology would indicate module temperature by varying the temp of the breathing effect of the lighting. A few years later, most of the world has learned that DDR4 memory just really doesn’t get too hot. So what do you do with all of that lighting? Well in this era, you convert it to RGB and use it for the best gaming aesthetics of course! To really ice the proverbial cake, the RGB lighting effect is controllable from many of the industries RGB control software such as ASUS’s Aura Sync, Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion and MSI’s Mystic Light sync to seamlessly blend into the rest of your perfect gaming system.

Intel Optane Memory Data Drive Acceleration

When Intel’s 3D XPoint technology hit the market as Intel Optane Technology, it could do wonderful things to your computer, but only in the right configuration. To take advantage, you had to couple an Optane module to a SATA based drive. Not long after, larger drives big enough to hold your entire system became available, but only for the deeper-pocketed enthusiasts. Many users couple a smaller PCIe storage drive with the OS to a large mechanical Hard Drive for storage and Intel has now opened up Optane Acceleration to kick your data drive into high gear as well. Those smaller 32 and 64GB Optane modules can now be put to good use, and we’ll be looking at how this typical SSD+HDD configuration can benefit from Intel Optane Acceleration Technology.
