A Newly Released Memory Module for May
Introducing the DDR4 2666 SODIMM and UDIMM Memory Modules
To meet the needs of evolving performance standards, we’re introducing the DDR4 2666 SODIMM and UDIMM memory modules. Compatible with a range of upcoming platforms and motherboards, the two modules are an important upgrade for users in the months leading up to a DDR5 launch.
Previous models’ memory speeds only reached 2400Mbps. Now, users can install DDR4-2666 memory modules onto a platform with a better user experience and smoother PC performance without taking any overclocking risk. The DDR4 2666 SODIMM and UDIMM memory modules enable higher stability and performance for advanced gamers, multimedia pros, and DIY enthusiasts who want the most reliable performance enhancement they can afford.

An SP Charity Story from Spain
On the 15th of April, a school in Spain specializing in helping troubled youth, received eight Slim S55 120GB and two Slim S55 240GB SSDs from us. The high school, known as Tirant Lo Blanc, celebrated their 50th anniversary last year.
Around 650 students, aged 11-20 years old, can learn arts, math, marketing, electronics, electrical engineering, computers, literature, and much more. They can also take classes to learn a skill like electronics, electricians, various computer fields, and marketing.
Here’s what their teacher Xavier Gregori shared with us:
“We have very good students without any problems. We have not very good students. And, we have students with a lot of problems. The most typical problem is that they don’t want to study. They are too young to realize that they have to study. We have students with economic problems: some of they don’t have enough money to buy books, pencils, even food.”
“Some of the students before the school didn’t do anything. Some of them used to smoke drugs in the street. Silicon Power can help us because we use computers. The students were very happy, because they’ve never worked with SSDs. I told them about the speed of the SSD. They want to test them in our old computers.”
Still, the school needs more help.
“We need modern computers (i5 and above), because we work with old computers. Any technology products could help the students to learn about electronic products: for example: computers, tablets, telecommunications.”
By helping the school, Silicon Power has given Spanish youth the opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed. We look forward to further helping Tirant Lo Blanc and other organizations that need our assistance.
Silicon Power Influencers
Nikola is a student of IT and a Youtuber from Serbia. His hobby is video editing, so he needed a lot of space for huge, clunky HDDs in his backpack to store all of his video files. But, those are troubles of the past. With a waterproof Bolt B80 that fits in his pocket, he can store anything…even underwater!
Charlene is a travel and lifestyle influencer from Malaysia. She’s always on the go. She had issues with her adventures lasting longer than her phone battery. She also had issues with storing all of the photos and videos she accumulated. SP supplied an Armor A65 and pink S105 to help her tell her story and provide content to her followers.
Jesuel is from Uruguay. He is a computer maintenance and repair technician. In his free time, he is a passionate gamer with a growing channel on YouTube. He got in touch with us because he wanted to improve his seven year old computer with one of our SSDs.
After using our Slim S55 for a week, he told us that his computer was experiencing very positive changes in speed and performance. He told us his “computer has been revived!”
