Silicon Power currently offers a broad range of products that span from memory cards to SSDs and from power banks to headphones. For several years the company has been offering mainstream memory modules too, but only this month it decided to enter the market of enthusiast-class DRAM.
Silicon Power’s XPOWER DDR4 memory modules rely on custom 10-layer PCBs to ensure stability while operating at speeds beyond JEDEC standards. The current lineup includes dual-channel 16 GB (2×8 GB) and 32 GB (2×16 GB) kits aimed at the latest platforms. Silicon Power will offer DDR4-2666 CL16, DDR4-3200 CL16, DDR4-3600 CL19, and DDR4-4133 CL19 modules featuring up to 1.4 V. Like other enthusiast-class DIMMs, the XPOWER DDR4 products feature XMP 2.0 technology to simplify setting their speeds.
Silicon Power offers two kinds of XPOWER modules: the XPOWER AirCool without any heat spreader, as well as the XPOWER Turbine with a heat spreader.
Silicon Power does not disclose memory chips it uses for its XPOWER AirCool and XPOWER Turbine DDR4 modules, but expect different speed modules to be based on different DRAM devices. In fact, since the company requires DDR4-4133 CL19 DIMMs to use 1.4 Volts, it has a pretty wide range of chips it can use since such a high voltage pretty much guarantees stable operation at high speeds.
All Silicon Power XPOWER AirCool DDR4 modules are backed by a lifetime warranty. Sales of these products are expected to begin in the coming weeks or months, depending on the region. Pricing is expected to in line with market trends.
It is noteworthy that Silicon Power is one of many companies that decided to start making enthusiast-class DRAM modules this year. Alongside Silicon Power, companies such as Antec, Colorful, GIGABYTE, and Inno3D have introduced their advanced memory in the last couple of quarters.
- Silicon Power Has a Host of USB-C Peripherals: MicroSD Card Reader, Dongles & Docks

No results found.
drexnx - Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - linkno rgb, no care.
RSAUser - Saturday, October 27, 2018 - linkWe should start treating having no RGB like the aux port, honorable mention and instant thumbs up for not having it.
Zingam - Sunday, October 28, 2018 - linkWut? You insane? What are you going to say next? Apple sucks?
spaceship9876 - Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - linkWe need Globalfoundaries and Intel to start manufacturing DDR4 to increase competition enough for prices to fall.
Dragonstongue - Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - linkyou expect Intel to make something and charge a fair price..... AH HA HA HA... GF seems "good idea" however IMO, maybe at some point they will, but likely their fabs are running full tilt to push out what they already do?
I could be wrong, but likely memory tech is very IP focused so if you do not have the IP to "allow it" serious lawsuits are likely to happen, probably why so few companies out there that make memory of any type.. I know for a number of years AMD had IP in regards to memory, and GF is a direct partner of them and IBM..time will tell?
Diji1 - Wednesday, October 24, 2018 - linkFab plants cost an enormous amount of money to setup and be successful.
eastcoast_pete - Thursday, October 25, 2018 - linkAny words on pricing?
