Unmatched memory performance and stability

DDR4 Boost
XMP LED

With traditional memory design the memory signals are often distorted by electromagnetic signals from other components, making the system perform slower or become unstable. MSI introduces DDR4 Boost technology with optimized traces and fully isolated memory circuitry. This design ensures the memory signals stay pure for optimal performance and stability.

An added XMP LED highlights an active Extreme Memory Profile for the best memory speed and stability setting.
