Price and Availability

The Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 memory module is now available in the US. At the time this review was published, availability is somehow limited or out of stock. The price of the DDR4-3000 16GB (2x8GB) dual channel memory kit was around $89.99, so I’m not quite sure how much is the DDR4-2800 variant. But you can check the latest pricing and availability by following the links below.

Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 Dual Channel Review: Conclusion

The Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-2800MHz 16GB dual channel memory kit that I tested performed relatively well. It somehow was able to perform on par with other memory kits like the Klevv Cras DDR4. I was able to overclock it even further to 3000MHz which gave it a slight boost in its performance. Overclocking the memory a step higher than its rated speed will not always produce a noticeable performance but it’s good to know that you can still push it a little bit further specially when you need to.

Aesthetically speaking, the Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 looks good, it’s simple but it works, specially with a red and black themed motherboard. And having the option to remove the serrated red fins gives it a little bit of flexibility. The last Viper 4 kit we reviewed had a green PCB. As you can see, this kit has a matte black PCB, and it looks way better than the kits with green PCB. I think every memory manufacturer nowadays, specially those who are targeting the enthusiasts and gamers, should use a black PCB.

In terms of pricing, the Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 is an affordable solution. It’s cheaper actually but it still performs on par with some of the more expensive memory kits in the market. The only problem is availability. At the time I published this review, availability is very limited, most of the time it’s out of stock. I’m not sure if your local stores have these kits, but it would be great if they have it on stock.

Overall, like the quad channel Viper 4 DDR4 kit, this dual channel variant is a good solid performing memory as well. Honestly, this is not the fastest DDR4-2800 out there. There are other memory kits with the same clock speed that can perform (tad) better than this kit. But because it’s more affordable, this makes it a good option specially for those who are on a tight budget. If you can find one, the Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-2800 16GB is definitely a highly recommendable product.
