DDR5 has gone down in terms of pricing as the DDR5 platform matures with higher speeds and non-binary memory modules being released in the market. However, these new highspeed kits and large-capacity DIMMs are considered overkill for most people. So, that’s why we’re checking out the Adata XPG Lancer 32GB 6000MHz CL40 kit as its specs to price are ideal for most consumers.

The Adata XPG LANCER DDR5 memory comes in speeds of 5200 MT/s to 7,200 MTs with CAS latencies varying from CL30 to CL40. Additionally, The XPG Lancer DDR5 is available in either black or white heat spreaders as well as RGB variants. Our specific review sample is the 32GB(2x16GB) DDR5-6000 CL40 kit with a black heat spreader.

Adata XPG LANCER DDR5 – A Closer Look

The XPG Lancer comes in a fancy and shiny red packaging with a render of the Lancer DDR5 memory at the front. Like most brands, the specific configuration of the kit is shown via a sticker positioned on the lower right side of the box. There are also badges showing EXPO and XMP compatibility – this makes the XPG Lancer DDR5 memory one of the few memory kits that have both EXPO and Intel XMP support as most brands have specific kits that are for Intel and AMD.

Apart from the memory modules themselves, there are no additional items included like stickers or any documentation.

The XPG Lancer has one of the cleanest yet stylish-looking heat-spreader designs in the market. I for one don’t mind the lack of RGB as its design will clearly fit any build theme.

As mentioned earlier, its clean design makes it fit almost every build. Its xx mm height also makes it compatible with most air coolers.

The Adata XPG LANCER DDR5 managed to peak at 59.3°C throughout our testing making it one of the hottest DDR5 kits in our test suite. However, it’s worth nothing that 59.3°C is still relatively low as far as DDR5 temperatures goes as you a lot of headroom before reaching the 95°C TJMax JEDEC standard especially if you want to overclock.

Conclusion

Adata XPG Lancer 32GB 6000MHz DDR5 Review 032

Overall, the Adata XPG Lancer DDR5 performs on par and in some cases better than similarly specced kits thanks to the balance of high frequency, low latency timings, cool temps and price. Speaking of price, our XPG Lancer DDR5 6000 MT/s C30 kit retails for Php 7,195 on Lazada making it one of the cheapest priced 32GB(2x16GB) DDR5-6000 kit in the market – and if you spend a bit more you’d get aRGB lighting tighter timings for the RGB variant. What seals the deal with the XPG Lancer DDR5 is its support with both AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 as users can switch platforms without the extra cost of getting another compatible kit. Not to mention the availability of the white variant which is still considerably rare for DDR5 memory modules. That said, the XPG Lancer DDR5 is an ideal memory if you’re looking for a high performance, low cost memory without having to worry about platform compatibility all while having good aesthetics that would first most, if not all build themes.
