Antec Katana Series 7 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200 MHz Memory Review

Today we have a very unique item from Antec. We have the Katana Series 7 RAM in front of us today. Let’s get real for a second, we have two types of RAM today. We have the boring RAM that has no lights, very little style, but has the performance power to make your jaw drop. On the other hand we have RAM that has such an extremely cool design we are willing to sacrifice any amount of performance to get that look. Don’t get me wrong I am a huge fan of fancy RAM but I am also a gamer and a person that loves to benchmark systems. So performance is also important to me. Anything that runs RGB is going to be theoretically slower or require more power to achieve the same results just because of the LED factor. You have to power those light some way and some of those light shows require a software suite to do so. You just need to know what you are wanting to achieve when choosing your new set of memory. 

One of the most unique things about the Katana is the look of the RAM when the lights are off. The lightbar is a shiny chrome and doesn’t even look like it would even light up. The finish is truly mirror like. Then all of the sudden you get this beautiful RGB blasting through and it looks amazing. So this RAM has a great look, even when the lights are off. Lets not waste anymore time and get to the review and see what this RAM has to offer!

Taking its name from the Japanese samurai sword and drawing inspiration from the silhouette of the blade, Antec KATANA is ready to amaze you by its metallic shine and soft lighting, providing an infinite possibility for your dream build.
