Remember that God-awful (in our opinion) Commando assault rifle-shaped PCIe SSD by Apacer? The company decided to extend some of that styling onto its latest Commando series DDR4 memory variants. The new Apacer Commando DDR4 memory series comes in 16 GB (2x 8 GB) dual-channel kits, in frequencies of DDR4-3466 CL16 (originally announced in Q4-2017 with looser CL18 timings) and the new DDR4-3600 (EK.16GA4.GFAK2). Its module design features a distinctive heatspreader with an ornament that looks like the top attachment rail of certain assault rifles or carbines.
The newer DDR4-3466 variant comes with tighter timings of 16-18-18-36 (against the original’s 18-18-18-42), and a module voltage of 1.35V, while the DDR4-3600 variant does its advertised clock speeds at 17-19-19-39, and 1.35V module voltage. Both kits are XMP 2.0 compliant, so the advertised speeds can be enabled with one click in your UEFI setup program. Available now, the DDR4-3466 kit is priced at 254€, while the DDR4-3600 kit goes for 379€.
