Antec is one of the old-timers in the PC industry, known for their high-quality power supply units and cases which continues to be one of the competitive brands in the market today. We checked out the Antec booth at the recently concluded COMPUTEX 2019 convention at Taipei, Taiwan to check out their latest products including their new cases and the latest addition to the Antec Memory line. Let’s check them out below.

Check out our Antec product reviews here.

Antec Memory Katana Series



Antec started its own memory product line in 2017 with the 1 Series and 3 Series memory modules which are plain DDR4 memory kits and the 5 Series with RGB lighting. AT COMPUTEX, Antec introduced its latest addition to the Antec Memory line-up – the Antec Memory Katana Series (7 Series) DDR4 memory. The Antec Memory Katana Series is named after one of the traditional Japanese swords that were used by the samurai, and the design of this RAM stick was inspired by the styling of the sword. The aluminium heatsink builds the texture of black steel by means of CNC machining process and detailed surface modification. It also creates the image of the Japanese sword through the sleek outline. We got a first-hand look at the Antec Memory Katana Series memory modules which features RGB lighting with support for synchronization with the ASUS Aura Sync RGB software.



It comes with a silver metallic top that shines with or without the RGB lighting. For builders that prefer a stealthy PC build without RGB lighting, the Antec Memory Katana Series memory can still offer aesthetics without the flashy lighting. The Antec Memory Katana RGB Memory comes with a matte black heatsink.
