GeIL Launches Evo Spear Phantom Gaming Edition Memory, Designed For SFF Systemsby Gavin Bonshor on May 17, 2019 3:00 PM EST
Following on from a wide range of ASRock Phantom Gaming branded products, memory manufacturer GeIL has announced its new Evo Spear Phantom Gaming Edition memory, which is designed for use in small form factor systems. Available in frequencies ranging from DDR4-2400 to DDR4-3200, the Evo Spear Phantom Gaming memory is being pitched for use with ASRock's Phantom Gaming motherboards, with kits available specifically for both Intel and AMD models.
Based on and designed for use with ASRock's Phantom Gaming series of motherboards, the new GeIL Evo Spear Phantom Gaming edition memory will be available in DDR4-2400, DDR4-2666, DDR4-3000 and DDR4-3200 versions with latencies ranging from CL17-19; the higher rated kits are likely to be the models that run with looser CAS latencies, with the slower rated models likely to feature tighter timings. The lower end of the Evo Spear Phantom Gaming kits come with voltages of 1.2 V, where the higher spec models will run at a higher voltage of 1.35 V. Each kit also includes an X.M.P 2.0 profile for easy and one-click overclocking capabilities.
One of the most predominant aspects of the GeIL Evo Spear Phantom Gaming memory is the design. The low profile heat spreaders which have been designed for small form factor systems feature a stealth black aluminum frame with a silver sticker with the ASRock Phantom Gaming branding covers the right-hand side of the modules. On the flip side is primarily black with a small white GeIL sticker on the right-hand side for a simplistic, yet elegant look. The GeIL Evo Spear Phantom Gaming memory will be available for purchase as single modules and in kits up to 64 GB in capacity.
The current availability and pricing of the GeIL Evo Spear Phantom Gaming series memory for both the Intel and AMD platforms are unknown as of yet, but we have reached out to GeIL for more information and we will update as soon as we have it.
Update 05/21: The GeIL Evo Spear Phantom Gaming memory kits that will be available in both 8 GB and 16 GB capacities, but the pricing will be unveiled after Computex 2019. The speed and latency configuration of the Evo Spear Phantom Gaming memory kits that will be available include the following:
DDR4-2400 CL 17-17-17-39
DDR4-2666 CL 19-19-19-43
DDR4-3000 CL 16-18-18-36
DDR4-3200 CL 16-18-18-36

shabby - Friday, May 17, 2019 - linkGaming ddr without rgb? No way...
Mr Perfect - Saturday, May 18, 2019 - linkSanity returns to the DRAM market! Hopefully they make some DDR5 kits too when that launches.
PeachNCream - Saturday, May 18, 2019 - linkSo RAM companies have been selling "gaming" memory outfitted with stupid LEDs and gigantic, totally pointless heat spreaders. Then, in order to appeal to a different market segment, they generously shrink the totally pointless heat spreaders and drop the LEDs and slap a SFF gaming sticker on and imply that the company is somehow doing us all a favor in making customized RAM just for people that have smaller systems? Yet underneath all of that is the exact same PCB with the exact same RAM. And somehow, no one at any of these companies expects that potential customers will see the stupidity. Its a great time to kick the PC gaming habit.
peterfares - Saturday, May 18, 2019 - linkEither the marketing and LEDs works on people and gets them to pay more money, or they know that it's all stupid gimmicks and just don't care. I'm in the latter category, I don't care about the RGB crap. I'll buy whatever has the performance I want at the right price. Why would I quit PC gaming just because of some silly RGB RAM kits.

Dug - Sunday, May 19, 2019 - link"latencies ranging from CL17-19"
Wow, they're really pushing the limits.
Dragonstongue - Monday, May 20, 2019 - linkLOL, they must be. CL of 17-19 though that says nothing about all the other sub timings either which are likely just as if not even more "loose"
