E-mail Print PDF

Taiwan-based memory maker GeIL launches the EVO X-- a DDR4 RAM series described as "the world's first fully RGB illuminated DDR4 memory module."

EVO X memoryThe modules are compatible with X99 and Z170 motherboards, support speeds ranging from 3000 to beyond 4000MHz and feature a Hybrid-Independent-Light-Module (HILM) design separating the lighting circuitry from the memory module. According to the company this means the illumination does not interfere with the module, providing maximum performance.

The EVO X supports motherboard RGB interfaces and applications from various vendors, including Asus Asura, Gigabyte Ambient LED and MSI Mystic Light, via motherboard 4-pin RGB header connection. The lighting module synchronises with motherboard, graphics card and RGB UI compatible components for a "seamless illumination experience."

One can also control the lighting manually, even on motherboards lacking RGB support, by connecting the EVO X to the motherboard fan connector. This enables a "sliding hot switch" with 7 RGB colour rotation (breathing red, breathing green, breathing blue, blue, yellow, purple and white).

The memory modules and kits are available with either glossy white or matte black heatspreaders.
