Performance and Stability

With traditional memory design the memory signals are often distorted by electromagnetic signals from other components, making the system perform slower or become unstable. MSI introduces DDR4 Boost technology with optimized traces and fully isolated memory circuitry. This design ensures the memory signals stay pure for optimal performance and stability.

Steel Armor technology is now also available for DDR4 Boost, offering better EMI-shielding and even better signal strength, for optimal memory performance.
