Throughout this review, we will take an in-depth look at the features, performance, and overall value of the ADATA XPG Lancer RGB DDR5-6000MT/s memory kit to determine how it stacks up against the competition.


The ADATA XPG Lancer RGB DDR5-6000MT/s memory kit comes in a striking red box in a simple box. The front of the package showcases a detailed illustration of the DRAM module, highlighting its sleek heatspreader and vibrant RGB lighting. Below the illustration, an anime character named Mera known as XPG’s brand persona for their high-end pc components for gamers, overclockers and tech enthusiasts. It also highlights various RGB synchronization support that is compatible with almost every known motherboard lighting system, including Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync, and ASRock Polychrome Sync. Additionally, the packaging emphasizes the 1-click overclocking capability through AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 profiles.

On the rear side of the packaging, ADATA has taken a more minimalist approach, providing just the essential information. However, they have included a convenient QR code that users can easily scan to access more in-depth details about the memory kit. Importantly, the rear of the box also prominently displays the memory’s timings and voltage requirements both in the packaging and the carved holes. The sides of the packaging are kept simple and straightforward, focusing on brand recognition and identification.

Upon opening the packaging, users are greeted by a clear plastic shell that securely holds the two XPG Lancer RGB DDR5-6000MT/s memory modules. There are no free stickers or documentation.

The XPG Lancer RGB

The XPG Lancer RGB DDR5-6000MT/s memory modules itself showcase a sleek and modern design that perfectly complements the aesthetic of a high-end gaming systems. The front of the RAM is dominated by a black matte metal heatspreader, and also adorned with an intricate line pattern on its side, creating a visually appealing texture. At the bottom, the iconic XPG logo is prominently displayed.

At the back, it features the same design but with the sticker specification and the warranty sticker.

One of the standout features of the XPG Lancer RGB is, of course, its RGB illumination. The top of the heatspreader, the part most visible in your computer, has an elongated cross-shaped cutout.

This unique design allows the LED lighting underneath to shine through, creating an eye-catching effect. It also distinguish itself from other RGB memory modules, which typically have boxy, curvy, or other common designs.

Aside from the black variant, they also have the white variant.


The XPG Lancer RGB DDR5-6000MT/s memory modules feature new technologies and components that enables its impressive speed. At the heart of each module are the SK Hynix A-Die integrated circuits (ICs), renowned for its ability to achieve high speeds and tight timings making the rated speed of 6000MT/s and low latency of CL30-40-40 possible.

Further enhancing its stability and reliability, it has advanced Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC) on each module which regulates the power delivered to the memory chips for stable and consistent supply of electricity. This is particularly important for DDR5 memory, which operates at a lower voltage compared to its DDR4 predecessor, making precise power management essential for optimal performance and longevity.

Another significant feature of the XPG Lancer RGB DDR5 memory is its on-die Error Correction Code (ECC) functionality. ECC is a critical technology that helps maintain data integrity by detecting and correcting errors that may occur during data transmission. While ECC was previously limited to server-grade memory and select AMD processors, DDR5 memory like the Lancer RGB now brings this feature to a broader range of systems, including Intel-based platforms.
