Kingmax offers DDR4 memory with nano coating
The Taiwanese maker of computer memory Kingmax has presented a new DDR4 SDRAM memory line that comes with a nano coating. Thus the new memory line continues the Kingmax tradition of offering memory with nano technology – a few years ago we got DDR3 modules from Kingmax with the same technology inside (or on them to be more precise).
The nano technology is called “Nano Thermal Dissipation Technology” and helps the memory chips dissipate heat in a faster, easier and more efficient way. In fact the new technology is said to be so effective Kingmax claims that the memory that uses it does not need any heat sinks. Moreover the technology is said to lower memory chips’ temperatures so much they run with temps that are 10 per cent lower when compared to traditional memory with heat sinks. The technology is based on a thin layer of diamond-like carbon particles and silicon. The layer fills in the microscopic cracks on top of the memory chips so the end result is better cooling.
The new DDR4 memory with a nano coating belongs to the Kingmax Nano Gaming line of gaming memory and can be used with PCs on the Intel X99 chipset and Haswell-E processors. The memory is also fast – depending on the model it runs between 2666 MHz and 3400 MHz and is available in 4 GB and 8 GB memory modules. There’s also support for XMP 2.0 and the required voltage sits between 1.2V and 1.35V.
No word on pricing as of now.
