Lexar has announced its entry to the DRAM market, where the company plans to offer memory solutions for both laptops and desktops.
Lexar is mainly known for its flash storage products, including SD cards and, more recently, SSDs. Now, the company says it is “excited to announce its entrance into the DRAM market”. Lexar will offer two DRAM options for consumers, for laptop and desktop platforms. Both kits offer speeds of 2666MHz and operate at 1.2v, which Lexar claims makes them “ideal for the new smart home offices and classroom setups”.
