DDR4 has been available for a respectable amount of time, and the industry is preparing itself to move across to the new DDR5 standard that was recently launched alongside the newest CPUs from Intel. But even with DDR5 on the market now, it will be a long time till the whole tech space moves onto it, so for now, there is still no harm is buying or using DDR4 if you can get good deals and all the performance you need.
For gamers, there isn’t a compelling argument for spending the extra on DDR5 and compatible hardware when the performance gain in games is negligible. So for the time being there is still plenty of value in going for a kit of DDR4 memory.
ASGARD VALKYRIE DDR4 3600MHz
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen memory from Asgard here, and I’m sure it won’t be the last, but I have to question, with the first kit from them that we reviewed being DDR5, why have we moved down to a DDR4 kit? As I mentioned, there is still a lot of value in DDR4, at this point in time it is looking like it may be easy to spec out and buy all the parts you need for a budget gaming rig that still has great performing memory for a cheap price.
Let’s see if that great performing memory can be found within the Asgard Valkyrie kit of memory. We’ve been sent this kit from Asgard to have a look at, this kit isn’t meant to be the best ever, this is actually the most budget memory we have looked at from Asgard, so this could be a great contender if you want to build something well performing and cheap that still manages to look good.
