PNY Launching XLR8 MAKO Overclocked DDR5 Memory

Feed Your Alder Lake CPU with DDR5 RAM up to 6400 MT/s

DDR5 is the new hotness, and PNY has a couple of new product lines for this new standard via their Desktop Performance and XLR8 Gaming DDR5 memory models. Of particular interest to enthusiasts is the XLR8 Gaming MAKO modules, available with or without RGB lighting, and offering overclocked XMP 3.0 profiles out of the box up to 6400 MT/s.

The XLR8 Gaming MAKO and MAKO RGB modules have been designed to meet the needs of gamers and enthusiasts. The designs for both modules feature aluminum heat spreaders with elements inspired by the powerful, fast and aggressive Mako shark from which they get their name. An XLR8 logo and GAMING text is proudly emblazoned on the side of the module and silver angled relief lines are machined into the heat spreader to reflect other components’ lighting and provide unmatched flair and style.

The MAKO RGB model comes equipped with super bright RGB LEDs which are diffused with a geometric polymer light pipe offering a superior RGB lighting experience. Users will be able to control their module lighting with major motherboard RGB control and sync software, delivering a seamless user experience.

At the top of the stack rests the XLR8 Gaming MAKO DDR5 6400MHz model, a 32GB dual-channel kit (part number MD32GK2D5640044XR) with its rated 6400 MT/s (PC5-51200) speeds achieved with a CAS latency of 44 at 1.4V.

PNY’s premium XLR8 memory features our most aggressive speeds, highest bandwidth, lowest latency and power consumption, and most advanced thermal performance for maximum PC stability and responsiveness during memory-intensive gaming and application use. PNY XLR8 DDR5 memory modules are rigorously engineered and tested to ensure peak performance in even the most challenging gaming environments.

In addition to the overclocked models PNY is also introducing their Performance DDR5 memory at JEDEC standard speeds, 4800 MT/s (PC5-38400) at CL40 / 1.1V. And all models – overclocked or JEDEC – come with a lifetime warranty and “24/7 U.S. based technical support”.
