Geil super luce lite rgb
Обзор и тестирование комплекта оперативной памяти DDR4-2666 Geil Super Luce RGB Sync из двух модулей суммарным объемом 16 Гбайт
В нашем распоряжении оказалась пока что новая и довольно редкая память – Geil DDR4-2666 Super Luce RGB Sync.
На данный момент найти ее в продаже довольно затруднительно, поэтому попробуем разобраться, насколько она интересна, на примере последней модификации на базе микросхем SK Hynix, присланной самим производителем.
Линейка Geil Super Luce RGB Sync
Geil Super Luce RGB Sync Dual Channel Kit – это семейство комплектов оперативной памяти DDR4, состоящих из двух модулей объемом 4 и 8 Гбайт, отличительная особенность которых – радиаторы черного цвета, оснащенные декоративной RGB-подсветкой.
Пользователям предлагаются частоты 2133, 2400, 2666, 2800, 3000 и 3200 МГц. Начиная с частоты 2666 МГц с таймингами 16-16-16, используются XMP-профили и для достижения заявленных частоты и таймингов пользователю необходимо зайти в BIOS материнской платы и вручную активировать XMP-профиль. По умолчанию же устанавливается конфигурация согласно стандартам JEDEC – 2133 МГц с таймингами 15-15-15 и напряжением 1.20 В.
Отдельно подчеркнем: существует линейка Geil DDR4 Super Luce Lite RGB, отличается она тем, что ее подсветка является неуправляемой.
Упаковка и комплектация
На тестирование прибыл комплект из двух модулей, которые помещены в блистер из прозрачного пластика и картонную коробку с «окошками», через которые видны этикетки самих модулей (серийные номера модулей совпадают и, скорее всего, являются серийным номером самого комплекта, а не модулей).
Какая-либо комплектация отсутствует.

Geil Super LUCE RGB DDR4 Review
1 Packaging & Contents » In our look at AMD Ryzen CPUs and memory, we can't forget to check out some RGB DIMMs, and Geil's Super Luce RGB DDR4 for Ryzen are ready for exactly that. With pretty much everything else gone full RGB these days, AMD memory hasn't been neglected at all, but with LED DIMMs seemingly affecting overclocking at the high-end for some Intel users, it only seems natural to take a look at how that might all play out on AMD's CPUs too. AMD's Ryzen CPUs have had a not-so-great start at all when it comes to memory, but these days, most of those issues seem to be a bit more balanced after several AGESA updates AMD offered to board makers to update and improve their motherboards' BIOSes. The unfortunate truth is that AMD and Intel have very different DDR4 memory controllers, so many memory kits certified for Intel CPUs just didn't work right with Ryzen at the speeds they were rated for. Going above AMD's own rated maximums for Ryzen requires a specific DIMM design, and even the 2666 MHz Ryzen supports requires 1R DIMMs, so getting more and more sticks out there on the market that are certified to work with Ryzen is a boon to those who want to build their own PCs without having to wonder about whether things are going to work right. What about if you have a somewhat weird AMD motherboard that doesn't exactly meet that high-end status? I've gone and made things unfair and put GieL's top-level 3000 MHz AMD RGB option through the gauntlet that is AMD's entry-level motherboards to see if they could live up to their ratings.

GeIL Super Luce RGB Sync DDR4-4133 Review: Higher Voltage, Lower Price
Taiwan’s Golden Emperor International Limited (GeIL) puts itself back in the spotlight with DDR4-4133 rated at a mere CAS 19, pushing its latency-to-frequency ratio beyond expectations for a mere $240. That high data rate comes at a high voltage level, the dangers of which are probably exaggerated, given that Intel has already certified even higher-voltage parts. But speaking of extra voltage, that’s exactly what our test platform needed to make these modules stable.
- High DDR4-4133 XMP data rate
- Good CAS 19 timings for its data rate
- Mid-priced among performance RGB memory
- Requires motherboard RGB software to control lighting
- XMP settings require high 1.40V DIMM
- Full stability required even higher-than-rated voltage on our motherboard
If you don’t mind its 1.40V setting or even adding a bit more to get it stable on some boards, the Super Luce RGB Sync DDR4-4133 offers great XMP performance at a moderate price.
Extreme memory kits get extreme ratings by blatantly violating Intel’s memory voltage precautions. The history on this is fairly short: In 2013, a bunch of companies released 1.35V UDIMMs using the previous DDR3L SODIMM spec, in preparation for Intel’s upcoming restrictions. Hardly anyone remembered that this memory existed two years later when Intel finally implemented those restrictions, but they did notice that 1.65V “Performance Memory” damaged a few CPUs. Overclockers quickly found that keeping the memory voltage within 0.50V of the memory controller was enough to stave off the damage, so the workaround memory was to increase the memory controller voltage to at least 1.15V.
Fast forward to today, where the ubiquity of DDR4 has made DDR3L a distant memory, and 1.35V is the most widely-accepted standard for the “performance” variations of this 1.20V standard. Intel has said that nothing exceeding 1.35V should be used, but includes memory with voltage levels as high as 1.50V on its own XMP Certification List.
GeIL’s Super Luce RGB Sync DDR4-4133 uses its 1.40V rating to boast 19-19-19-39 timings at its high data rate. Anyone who thinks that CAS 19 is outrageous at any data rate should probably do some math, as it results in similar response times to DDR4-2400 CAS 11. Latency is rated in cycles, and faster cycles take less time.
We already know that these are the venerable “B-Die” Samsung IC’s, and can derive from their DDR4-2133 default a K4A8G085WB-BCPB part number. While hardcore tuners can debate about why the better-rated BCTD (DDR4-2666) and BCRC (DDR4-2400) IC’s aren’t outpacing these in the overclocking arena, we’re simply interested in results that prudent readers can replicate.
Each DIMM is topped with a white light diffuser and covered in stamped-aluminum heat spreaders. The color we observed was slightly more vibrant than some of the other white-covered RGB kits we’ve tested, and this appears to be due to less opaqueness in the diffusers rather than any improvement to the LEDs beneath.
GeIL does not supply its own RGB software, instead relying upon the RGB suite available with compatible motherboards. Motherboards that don’t have an RGB suite are stuck with the kit’s unsynchronized rainbow scroll pattern.
As with most competitors, GeIL's DRAM carries a lifetime limited warranty.
Test & Comparison Hardware
We compared GeIL’s Super Luce RGB Snyc to our latest review samples. While the difference in XMP data rate appears unfortunate, the low latency of Trident Z Royal and Nighthawk Legend parts should at least put them in the running in regards to tuning capacity.
A Z390 motherboard from Asus hosts Intel’s Core i9-9900K, while MSI’s GTX 1080 graphics card and a Toshiba/OCZ RD400 SSD minimize any remaining system bottlenecks. We locked the CPU at 4.80 GHz, and apart from GeIL’s 1.40V XMP, we set DIMM voltage to 1.35V.
Latency Tuning, Overclocking & Benchmarks
Consistency comes from the fact that the three top kits use the same Samsung ICs, so using the same voltage gets us, in most instances, the same minimum stable timings.
Lowest Stable Timings at 1.35V (Max) on ROG Maximus XI Hero (BIOS 0602)
GeIL Super Luce RGB Snyc GLS416GB4133C19DC
G.Skill Trident Z Royal F4-3200C14D-16GTRG
T-Force Nighthawk Legend TF7D416G3200HC14ADC01
Adata XPG Spectrix D41 AX4U320038G16-DT41
Programming is the biggest difference between the GeIL, G.Skill, and T-Force kits, where the DDR4-4133 comes with looser advanced timings. While our Asus motherboard does a reasonable job of compensating advanced timings for changes in frequency, the DDR4-4133 kit’s timings appear to be even looser than those the motherboard automatically applies to the two DDR4-3200 C14 kits. And so it hits a higher data rate, even when reduced to our standard 1.35V test voltage.
Before we go on to performance tests, we should note that the GeIL DDR4-4133 kit was not completely stable at XMP values on our motherboard. After first refusing to boot, our motherboard recovered by using its MemOK function to raise VCCIO and VCCSA to around 1.25V. When the memory still failed an extended stability test, we manually increased its voltage to 1.41V to completely cure the issue.
When combined with our own custom 1.41V setting, Super Luce RGB Sync’s higher XMP settings produced the best bandwidth of any kit that uses two single-rank DIMMs.
Unfortunately, the two DDR4-3200 C14 kits were our best performers when overclocked to DDR4-4000. The gains were minimal, but you can see them in the test results of our F1 2015 and 7-Zip File Compression benchmarks.
Priced at $240 when we wrote this, the Super Luce RGB Sync DDR4-4133 was only $14 pricier than the T-Force Nighthawk Legend DDR4-3200 C14, and around $50 cheaper than the Trident-Z Royal DDR4-3200 C14. Of course, the Royal’s price reflects a specific aesthetic treatment that has no bearing on performance.
Our value chart seems to indicate that your best option would be to sacrifice a little performance with the Adata DDR4-3200 C16 kit and save a bunch of money. But since you’re not willing to sacrifice any performance, your next best option appears to be purchasing a DDR4-3200 C14 kit and overclocking it to its limit. But there are no guarantees in overclocking…unless the overclock you seek comes stock as an XMP value. But even then, the XMP voltage of this memory did not make it stable at its rated data rate, at least on our motherboard.
Our previous testing showed that the Team Group kit only performs well on Asus boards, and with the G.Skill kit’s pricing issue, perhaps the best option for people who want maximum performance at middle pricing isn’t even listed. But if you want a kit that’s guaranteed to run DDR4-4133 and don’t care about the extra voltage needed to get it there, the GeIL Super Luce RGB Sync DDR4-4133 gives you a high data rate for its middle price.

GeIL today announced the Super Luce RGB Lite DDR4 memory range. If you're a fan of GeIL products, you may remember that GeIL have recently released the Super Luce RGB Sync variant. These modules are practically identical with only a few subtle differences.
There is no software support for The Super Luce RGB Lite, this means you can't customize your RGB LED settings and are locked with the manufactures preset lighting. The Super Luce RGB Sync supported a cable that connected to your motherboard, allowing customization via software.
As for performance, as expected they're identical. Both feature single and dual-channel kits up to 32GB (2x16GB), speeds of DDR4-2133MHz to DDR4-3200MHz and are available in black and white finish. Backed with lifetime warranty, GeIL also offer AMD variants of the Super Luce RBG line up for those AMD Ryzen builds.
