GeIL Unveils Orion Series Memory, Up to DDR4-4000 with 32 GB Memory Modulesby Gavin Bonshor on June 11, 2020 11:00 AM EST
GeIL has announced its newest family of DDR4 modules, the Orion series. Available in two versions, one standard and one for AMD platforms, the Orion series offers SKUs ranging from single 8 GB sticks up to 64 GB kits with two matching 32 GB memory modules. Meanwhile the new modules will be available at memory speeds ranging from DDR4-2666 up to DDR4-4000.
Clad in in either Racing Red or Titanium Grey for something a bit more subtle, GeIL's Orion series of DDR4 memory is offered in kits specially designed for AMD's platforms. And for hardware purists (or closed case owners) out there, the Orion range omits the use of RGB LEDs for a more clean-cut look. Meanwhile it's interesting to note that, at least going by the photos provided by GeIL, the Orion modules look surprisingly tall for otherwise simple, RGB-free memory. Unfortuantely we don't have the physical dimentions of the DIMMs, but users with low clearance coolers and the like may want to double-check that there will be sufficient room.
Onto the technical specifications, GeIL plans to make the Orion flexible with both single and dual-channel kits available. These range from 8 GB to 32 GB modules, with the highest spec kit topping out at 64 GB of DDR4-4000, with latencies of CL18 and an operating voltage of 1.35 V.

|DDR4-2666||19-19-19-43||1.20 V||8 GB (1 x 8 GB)
16 GB (1 x 16 GB)

32 GB (1 x 32 GB)
32 GB (2 x 16 GB)
64 GB (2 x 32 GB)

At present, GeIL hasn't unveiled pricing for any kits in its Orion series, nor has it provided details of when they will hit retail channels.

PeachNCream - Thursday, June 11, 2020 - linkNo RGB and fairly reasonable branding that omits youngster-targeted naming! It still isn't quite bare green PCB with ICs levels of classy, but its a huge step in the right direction toward building or upgrading a meaningfully functional computer from parts.
rrinker - Thursday, June 11, 2020 - linkThe last two machines I built use GeiL memory, and I think the two before that do as well. Mainly for that reason - they don't have ridiculous-looking heatspreaders, RGB, or silly graphics. And the price is usually good at a particular size and speed. If you really want, they do make some pretty wild stuff with RGB, I'm just glad they offer fairly basic stuff that works good as well.
Operandi - Thursday, June 11, 2020 - linkOne of the first systems I built had Geil RAM. Pretty sure it was DDR2 and had simple flat anodized heatspreader that came in a few different colors and simple "Geil" logo badge in the center. Pretty much the best looking RAM ever.
Morawka - Sunday, June 14, 2020 - linkGeil makes the best-looking budget RGB RAM right now IMO. The only real competition is Team Vulcan, and their heat spreaders are huge and tacky.
hMunster - Monday, June 15, 2020 - linkNo youngster-targeted naming? "Geil" is a German word for "horny", "sexually arousing" and/or the original meaning of "gay" (before it meant homosexual).
TheinsanegamerN - Monday, June 15, 2020 - linkWell given young people are having way less sex then previous generations I'd say it really isnt appealing to them.
