PNY Technologies is making a push into local markets by launching its XLR8 Gaming and Performance DDR5 Desktop Memory into Australia and New Zealand.
With more users turning to Intel Alder Lake CPUs, DDR5 will soon become the standard for gamers, enthusiasts and modders for creating the best computing experience. Additional CPU manufacturers are expected to release processors with DDR5 support throughout 2022.
The new PNY models include the MAKO DDR5 6000MHz Desktop Memory and the MAKO DDR5 6200MHz Desktop Memory. PNY’s DDR5 Mako low profile desktop memory offers modules that are only 32mm tall.
PNY product manager, Kevin Chang explained, “PNY have made a serious commitment to Australia and New Zealand in terms of launching new products such as the new PNY XLR8 Gaming and Performance DDR5 Desktop Memory. These exciting new products provide a dynamic, extreme performance experience for gamers, modders and enthusiasts alike.
The new modules also provide a superior computing experience thanks to the aggressive overclocking, heat spreader and XMP 3.0 support, delivering PNY’s fastest speeds, highest bandwidth and lowest latencies. These, in turn, maximise PC stability and responsiveness during memory-intensive gaming and application use.”

PNY says that the new XLR8 Gaming Mako modules have been designed to meet the needs of gamers and enthusiasts. The designs for both modules feature aluminium heat spreaders with elements inspired by the Mako shark from which they get their name. An XLR8 logo and GAMING text is emblazoned on the side of the modules and silver angled relief lines are machined into the heat spreader to reflect other components’ lighting.
PNY has been testing these modules with its motherboard partners, including ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI, to ensure compatibility. All models are compatible with Intel XMP 3.0 allowing factory overclocking to get the most out of the Mako DDR5 modules.
Performance DDR5 Mako DDR5 6000MHz Desktop Memory and the Mako DDR5 6200MHz Desktop Memory are available now from all authorised PNY XLR8 resellers across Australia and New Zealand.
