Patriot Unveils Viper 4 Blackout: Compatible with Ryzen 3000, Up to DDR4-4000

By Anton Shilov

Patriot has expanded its memory offerings for enthusiasts with a brand-new family of products, the Viper 4 Blackout. The new lineup supports data transfer rates of up to 4000 MT/s and is tested for compatibility with AMD’s latest Ryzen 3000/X570 desktop platform.

Equipped with matte black aluminum heat spreaders, Patriot’s Viper 4 Blackout memory will be available as 8GB and 16 GB dual-channel kits rated to operate in DDR4-3000 CL16, DDR4-3200 CL16, DDR4-3600 CL17, and DDR4-4000 CL19 modes at 1.35 Volts.

Patriot’s Viper 4 Blackout memory modules use a custom 10-layer black PCB to guarantee great signal integrity, but the company does not disclose which chips it uses for its new DIMMs. Meanwhile, by default the modules come with a standard DDR4-2133 JEDEC profile, but they feature XMP 2.0 profiles to automatically set the aforementioned tested speed-bins.

One thing to note about the Viper 4 Blackout products is that Patriot specifically decided to offer devices for those who want an all-black system. Therefore, the memory modules come without any RGB LEDs, something that opposes today’s ‘RGB everywhere’ trend.

Patriot’s Viper 4 Blackout DIMMs are backed by a lifetime warranty and will be available shortly at $51.99 – $184.99 price points depending on exact kit models.
