Acer Predator Talos 32GB DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory Kit Review

Overclocking

Disclaimer: Overclocking is never guaranteed, so that the results may vary depending on certain conditions and various hardware configurations. I am not recommending overclocking if you do not know what you are doing. High voltages may damage hardware, and the warranty will not cover it.

 

Predator Talos uses a less popular Samsung D-die IC, which isn’t overclocking as well as the well-known B-die used in the top overclocking series like the previously reviewed Predator Apollo DDR4-3600 CL14. It doesn’t mean we can’t overclock it at all, but we will be limited to about DDR4-3733 or one step higher. On our setup, the DDR4-3733 was the limit which was working at CL16 while relaxing the timings didn’t help in achieving much higher frequency, and we could boot at DDR4-3800 with some stability issues.

The best results were at DDR4-3200 CL14-17-17 1.45V or DDR4-3600 CL16-20-20 1.40V. DDR4-3733 required 1.45V, while results were really close to the DDR4-3600.

Predator Talos seems like an interesting RAM for those who want high performance and optimal compatibility but do not necessarily want to push their RAM to the limits. Our comparison suggests that the higher frequencies, even though faster, are not giving a much better game experience.
