In for review is the XPG LANCER RGB DDR5-6000 from ADATA. This is a 32 GB memory kit (2x 16 GB), featuring a speed of 6000 MT/s priced at ₱8,199 PHP (Shopee).
The XPG LANCER RGB DDR5 is available in black or white, with speeds ranging from 5200, 5600, 6000, 6400, 6800, 7200 and up to 8000 MT/s. Each stick comes with SK Hynix A-Die chips featuring a CL30-40-40 timing. This combination alone makes the LANCER an ideal candidate for memory overclocking.
Disclosure: ADATA sent the XPG LANCER RGB for the purpose of this review. The brand did not ask me to say anything particular about it.

Design, Layout and Connectivity
The XPG LANCER is an elegant looking memory kit despite its gaming heritage. You could still see its gaming genes via the well-defined lines and its RGB LED bar, but overall aesthetic points out to a more muted eye candy look. No wonder this kit received an award from Reddot and Taiwan Excellence. Now while it is not the tallest kit I have tested at 43.56 mm, it is still a tall one, so better check your CPU cooler’s clearance for possible compatibility issues that may arise.
Each module comes with an RGB lightbar slapped on top of the aluminum heatsinks. You may control it via XPG Prime, but various RGB lighting software from major motherboard brands will work too if that is your preference.
Like many DDR5 modules, the LANCER RGB features a single rank design with 8 memory ICs – each with 2 GB of capacity for a total of 16 GB per stick. The power management IC is located at the same area.
This memory kit’s part number is AX5U6000C3016G-DCLARBK. That basically means 6000 MT/s speed with 16 GB of capacity, operating at CL 30-40-40 timing under 1.35 V. This particular model is Intel XMP and AMD EXPO compatible.
Read, write and copy averages at 58.9, 81.077, and 59.772 GB/s respectively. Latency is rated at 67.8 ns, which is the lowest I have seen from a 6000 MT/s kit.
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is rated at 137,989 MB/s, while SHA3 (Secure Hash Algorithm 3) is at 4,026 MB/s.
As for Blender 4.0, the Ryzen 5 7600 with the LANCER RGB outputs 89.68, 64.02, and 47.71 SPM at its Monster, Junkshop and Classroom benchmarks respectively. These are pretty good numbers, aligning well with the Ryzen 5 7600 results at Blender’s leaderboards.
Procyon’s AI inference benchmark results are rather slow – as expected with our CPU running Windows ML.
As for content creation, the system scored fairly well at Procyon’s Photoshop (8537), Lightroom (5616), and Premier Pro (2790) benchmarks. Cross referencing my other DDR5-6000 results, this one is definitely faster.
Productivity scores are also way better compared to the last memory we’ve tested.
Now compression performance with 7-Zip starts at 96 GIPS, going down until it reaches 86.56 GIPS at the 256 MB test which is equivalent to almost 20 GB of RAM usage.
Gaming performance with the Ryzen 5 7600’s integrated graphics unit is okay. I was surprised that the Final Fantasy XIV result is the lowest though, even with our settings considered.
As far as thermals are concerned, the LANCER RGB stabilized at 58.5 ºC under OCCT’s memory stability test.
Now power is a bit erratic under load, even reaching 4.125 W at times. That said, we are looking at around 8 W peak for both DIMMs.
The XPG LANCER RGB DDR5-6000 is a 32 GB memory kit (2x 16 GB) from ADATA, priced at ₱8,199 PHP. Our particular unit features a speed of 6000 MT/s and comes in either black or white sub-models. The LANCER RGB has an elegant design on top of its RGB LED bars, making it a suitable kit for almost any builds. The XPG LANCER also comes equipped with SK Hynix A-Die chips and a CL30-40-40 timing, making it an ideal candidate for memory overclocking.
The memory kit’s throughput is impressive, with read, write, and copy averaging at 58.9, 81.077, and 59.772 GB/s, respectively. Latency is rated at 67.8 ns, the lowest I’ve seen in a 6000 MT/s kit. Encryption performance for AES and SHA3 is also notable. In 3D rendering and content creation though, the LANCER RGB performs well, surpassing other DDR5-6000 kits at my disposal. Productivity scores are also significantly better compared to the previous memory kit tested. Now compression performance with 7-Zip ranges from 96 GIPS, going down until it reaches 86.56 GIPS, which means you’d only loose about 10 GIPS from 2.6 GB to 19.3 GB of memory usage.
Gaming performance with the Ryzen 5 7600’s integrated graphics is acceptable, but don’t expect miracles with a measly iGPU paired to it. Thermally, the LANCER RGB stabilizes at 58.5 ºC under OCCT’s memory stability test which is inline with what I have seen as far as high frequency DDR5 kits are concerned. Power consumption is a bit erratic under load though, reaching 4.125 W at times, with a combined 8 W of consumption for both DIMMs.
In conclusion, the XPG LANCER RGB DDR5-6000 stands out for its elegant design, impressive throughput, low latency, and strong performance across various applications. However, potential buyers should consider CPU cooler compatibility due to its taller height. Overall, it is a compelling option for gamers and maybe even overclockers seeking a high-performance DDR5 memory kit.
