At launch, ADATA will be offering densities starting from 8GB to 32GB for both single sticks and dual kits.

Aside from the known standards such as PMIC for direct power regulation and ECC support to help next-gen rigs to be more stable across the board, enjoy these slick RAM kits and its lighting with the RGB edition controllable through major motherboard manufacturer’s software where ADATA has been partnering with and tested that includes the names of AORUS, ASROCK, ASUS, ASUS ROG, GIGABYTE, and MSI.
