While many people think DDR4’s days are numbered, it’s not, as Intel’s next-generation Raptor Lake processors will still support DDR4. Lexar recently introduced their new ARES RGB memory, which is very similar to their ARES DDR5, except we get some pretty sweet RGB lighting this time around. Today we’ll be looking at the only kit Lexar offers with this memory, a 16GB (2x8GB) kit running at 4000MHz with timings of 18-22-22 at 1.4V. Let’s see what this memory is about.
Special thanks to Lexar for providing the ARES RGB DDR4-4000 16GB memory kit for review.
The ARES RGB DDR4 memory comes in Lexar’s standard packaging. On the front we have a picture of the memory and a sticker that lets us know its capacity and speed.
If you scroll to the back, you’ll find some memory information and a list of specs.
If you open the box from the inside, you will find the memory in a kind of clamshell package that is nicely protected.
