In short: With more companies releasing DDR5 memory kits in preparation for Alder Lake and the upcoming Zen 4 platforms, it’s not easy for early adopters to choose which one to buy, unless they’re Lego fans. Galax is launching some memory modules that are Lego compatible, like its RTX 3090 Gamer Edition last year.
As reported Expreview (by using VideoCardz), Galax Gamer DDR5 RGB memory has a unique feature: it can be used as a Lego part. Available in red or blue, they come with an ARGB strip at the top that allows you to attach other Lego pieces to the modules.
The unusual combination of a renowned toy manufacturer and computer hardware is not new to Galax. Last year, the GeForce RTX 3090 Gamer Edition graphics card joined the Hong Kong company’s line of unconventional graphics cards, which includes the RTX 2070 Super / 2080 Super EX Pink Editions.
Meanwhile, Lego DDR5 will initially only be available in 2 x 16 GB kits, followed by 2 x 8 GB and 2 x 32 GB configurations. They will offer the standard 4800 MT / s JEDEC, but there is no mention of overclocking, price or availability here – expect more details when Alder Lake arrives.
Unfortunately for Lego fans planning to upgrade to a DDR5-capable platform, Galax memory kits such as the Lego-style RTX 3090 are expected to be released only in China. It’s a shame, as combining both of them on one PC would be pretty cool if you’re into that sort of thing.
Just this week, GeIL and G.Skill released DDR5 memory kits ahead of the release of Alder Lake. As for Lego, the company recently unveiled its largest set: the HMS Titanic, made up of 9,090 pieces.
