New ZADAK Twist DDR4 Memory, Up to DDR4-4133 and 256 GBby Gavin Bonshor on May 6, 2020 12:00 PM EST
ZADAK has announced its latest range of DDR4 memory, the Twist series. Designed for users looking for a lower profile alternative to its previous memory brands, the Twist features aluminium heatsinks and is available in 8 GB to 32 GB modules with speeds of up to DDR4-4133, including a 256 GB of DDR4-4133.
With a black and silver-finished aluminium heatsinks, ZADAK keeps up in the style stakes with its new Twist series. The heatsink measures in at 1.38 inches in height, which is lower profile than the vast majority of ZADAK's current range, but cannot officially considered to be low profile in terms of specification. The heatsinks themselves are constructed from anodized aluminium without RGB LED lighting and are backed by ZADAK's limited lifetime warranty.
Available in multiple capacities ranging from 8 GB to 256 GB kits and speeds from DDR4-2666 to DDR4-4133, it offers multiple kits for many different use cases. Each kit will be available in multiple capacities from 8 GB DIMMs to kits featuring 32 GB UDIMMs, for maximum capability across multiple platforms. For reference, Intel's 10th gen Comet Lake desktop can accommodate up 128 GB, while HEDT platforms such as AMD's Threadripper 3000 series can use the 256 GB (8 x 32 GB) kits.

As an added bonus, there's no RGB on these kits either. At present, ZADAK hasn't revealed when its Twist series will be available in retail channels, nor has it unveiled any scope on pricing.

MenhirMike - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkFor a moment, I was getting excited for 256 GB Modules, but it's "just" a kit. Good stuff though, but 32 GB is still the biggest Unbuffered DDR4 module.
deil - Thursday, May 7, 2020 - linkTitle is misleading a bit. I thought a second that we "just" got availability on 32GB sticks and someone made some lr-vista-x-quadbuffered monster that have 250GB per stick.
jchang6 - Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - linkFor a very important class of application, round-trip memory latency is absolutely critical, that performance is practically the inverse of latency. In this class, the cost of DRAM is practically irrelevant. DRAM vendors are reluctant to manufacture a custom low latency design. We can get some improvement by cherry picking part and a heat sink for low temp. But we can get more by disabling the upper half of each bank that furthest away from the sensors. The 8Gb DRAM chip has 17 row pins for 131072 rows, Can a DIMM vendor simply provide fake numbers in not using the last row pin (hard wire to zero). Disabling the upper half cuts the max distance by a factor of two?
