I’ve always loved music, ever since I was young. I have fond memories of sitting in the car with my parents and siblings going on a trip somewhere, listening to Linkin Park at full blast and all of us singing along. Since then, I’ve always been a fan of music, listening to all sorts of genres, from the heavy metal of bands like Bullet For My Valentine and my favourite band, While She Sleeps, to the lighter side of things with artists such as Novo Amor or Porter Robinson. My music taste covers the entire spectrum of musical genres, if you can name a genre, I can probably name at least one song I enjoy from it.
Of course, in music, you don’t get very far without instruments, and I have two favourites; One of those is the guitar, I love the guitar for its versatility and what you can do with it. My other favourite instrument is the piano, a beautiful sounding instrument that I truly believe can fit in all genres of music, don’t believe me? Think about it, you’ve probably heard it in pop, rap and even metal, it works just about anywhere you can put it. But what has any of this got to do with memory? Well, what we have here today is a kit of memory from Asgard called Bragi.
ASGARD BRAGI DDR4 3600MHz
Bragi is the name of a god, the Viking god of music, is it starting to make sense now? Yes, this memory is themed around music, to achieve this theming, Asgard has designed the kit to look like piano keys. This kind of approach is very unique for memory manufacturers, often there will be inspiration from certain things, like how gaming chairs are designed like car racing seats. As far as I’m aware, this is the first time a memory manufacturer has set out to make a product like this, it’s not just inspired by the piano, it’s imitating it, with some tasteful RGB of course.
We’ve seen memory from Asgard before, and what we found was that the design and the build quality of the product are fantastic, even a lot of care has clearly gone into making the unboxing experience as pleasant as possible. Our issue with the other kit we reviewed, however, was the performance, it wasn’t able to keep up with some of the other kits we looked at. By no means would I have described it as bad, but it felt more like a product you buy for its style and not its performance.
With this kit, we’ll find out if Asgard has what it takes to hit all the right notes and make us sing thier praises, or will they fall flat and have us wishing for something else?
