Review: V-Color Manta XPrism RGB DDR5 6800 MHz CL34 2 x 48 GB

Full review here:


V-Color is a company (from Taiwan established in 2006) for which we have already reviewed two other DDR5 kits. One was the ROG Manta XSky series, with a frequency of 7000 MHz and CL36 latency; the second one was - Manta XPrism 6200 CL36, which is from the same series as the product we will present today. This time, the sample is from the (very) high-capacity kits (2x48 GB), reaching up to 6800 MHz; here, it’s a 6800 CL34 version. This series in the V-Color offers frequencies up to 8400 MHz. There are three color variants:


It’s a series with an XMP profile. Our sample is not the highest frequency kit (from the upper end of the scale for 2x48 GB kits) from the Manta XPrism series, with a 6800 MHz clock, CL34-46-46-106, at 1.4 V. The series range is from 5600 to 8400 MHz (but that’s very picky with the motherboards). Overall, the V-Color Manta XPrism RGB DDR5 memory kit is an interesting option for those looking for high-performance memory with low latency and RGB lighting.

A quick reminder - DDR5 is the newest technology to hit the market, make headlines, and break world records. DDR5 already set spectacular results in overclocking (of course, using the LN2), even at 11648 MHz (single channel, using the Intel platform). DDR4 RAMs operate on a single 64-bit bus, while DDR5 has two 32-bit buses (plus, in both cases, an additional 8-bit for ECC). As a result, a single module is identified as a Dual Channel, while two are identified as Quad Channel. However, the solution does not match the throughput of HEDT platforms with processors with a four-channel controller. The internal (A / B) channels of DDR5 RAM also share the RCD (Register Clock Driver), which provides more output signals and more extended pulse reading (8 vs. 16). The DDR5 comes with a Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC) from the most important things you need to know. It’s responsible for controlling voltage changes, optimizing the energy draw, and making it less demanding for the motherboard controller. The DDR4 nominal voltage is 1.2 V; for the DDR5, it’s 1.1 V. Typical XMP voltage for the older type of memory is 1.35V (sometimes 1.45 V); now, it’s mostly 1.25 V. Speaking of the XMP, till now, it was 2.0 revision, with the introduction of the DDR5 we’ve got the rev 3.0. The main difference is that the number of profiles has increased from three to five (three for the manufacturer settings and two placeholders for the users).


The RGB can be controlled via the following:

  • Asus Aura Sync
  • Asrock Polychrome RGB
  • Gigabyte RGB Fusion 2.0
  • MSI Mystic Light Sync

The height of the memory module is 41.7 mm/1.64 inches, so it’s a relatively low-profile form, which should cause rare problems with the (air) CPU coolers.


We’ll check the kit on two platforms, with Z790-based motherboards (Asus Z790 Maximus Hero) combined with the Intel Core i9 13900K and the Asrock X670E Steel Legend combined with an AMD Ryzen 9 7900X. The used GPU is the Nvidia Geforce RTX 4090, so it shouldn’t be a limiting factor for memory performance. 


We are traditionally going to try and squeeze something more out of it. You can always stay safe and stick to the advertised frequency and latencies using XMP 3.0. The default parameters and visual aspects look attractive, so we must check the performance then. A limited lifetime warranty backs the V-Color Manta XPrism RGB series. For this kit, you’ll need to pay 499.99 USD (!)

In conclusion, the v-color XPism RGB memory series offers impressive design and performance that meets expectations. With a default frequency of 6800 MHz and XMP 3.0 profile, it caters well to Intel users, with overclocking potential up to 7200 CL36. The low-profile heat spreader ensures compatibility with larger air CPU coolers, while the 96 GB option provides ample memory for most users, especially in DDR5-based gaming setups. Despite its high capacity, the price is competitive at $499.99 USD. Awarded the "Guru3D Silver" award, this kit delivers speed, overclockability, and capability, making it an excellent choice for Intel's 13th/14th generation, particularly with a Z790 chipset motherboard. For AMD platforms, the 6400 MHz variant offers sufficient performance at a lower cost of $369.99 USD.
