PNY launches high-performance XLR8 Gaming RGB Desktop RAM


Global memory manufacturer, PNY Technologies, has increased its push into ANZ making available its new XLR8 Gaming RGBTM 3200MHz DDR4 desktop memory range.

PNY was founded in 1985 and named itself Paris, New York as a play on its original range of shipping destinations. Today, PNY Technologies is a leading manufacturer of memory and flash storage and its products are found around the globe.

PNY has been making inroads into the Australia and New Zealand market with extreme performance memory, NAND flash products and professional gaming graphic cards. Today, it has announced the availability locally of its new XLR8 Gaming RGBTM DDR4 range.

PNY Director – Sales, ANZ & Oceania Richard Clarke explained, “PNY has made a serious commitment to Australia and New Zealand in terms of launching new and exciting products in 2020 and beyond. XLR8 Gaming RGB DDR4 modules are the first of these as they provide dynamic, ultra-high performance experience for gamers, modders and enthusiasts alike by combining RGB customisation with overclocking capability. XRL8 RGB DRAM also uses a selected aluminium alloy heat spreader with a state of the art surface finish technique and design to create an extraordinary look and feel.”

XLR8 Gaming RGB is compatible with major motherboards and is ready-to-sync with Asus AURA SYNCTM, Gigabyte RGB FUSION 2.0, MSi Mystic Light Sync and ASRock Polychrome SYNC1 for an ultra-high quality RGB experience.

The range provides ultra-high performance and a superior computing experience thanks to the aggressive overclocking, heat spreader and XMP 2.01 support. XLR8 delivers PNY’s fastest speeds, highest bandwidth and lowest latencies which in turn maximise PC stability and responsiveness during memory-intensive gaming and application use.

XLR8 includes a Limited Lifetime Warranty and is supported by live tech support. It operates at 3200MHz and is backwards compatible with 3000MHz, 2933MHz, 2800MHz, 2666MHz, 2400MHz and 2133MHz.
Other key features include:

  1. Faceted, 3D geometric design and aluminium alloy construction create an extraordinary look and feel while providing heat dissipation to keep the modules cool under pressure.
  2. Brilliant LEDs and frosted light guide lens provide a wave of continuous colour eliminating shadows and dark spots by utilising a dual-sided 5x2 LED configuration.
  3. RGB sync allows for total control of colour and patterns creating an endless array of different combinations resulting in the ultimate lighting experience.
  4. 3200MHz (PC4-25600), 1.35V operation with 16-18-18, CAS 16, tRas36 timing.

The PNY XLR8 Gaming RGBTM range is available now in Australia from mWave and in NZ from PB Tech in 32GB (2x16GB), 16GB, 16GB (2x8GB) and 8GB configurations.
