    Well if you associate minimalist design with Apple then yeah.... but in all honesty most of apple's 'minimalist' designs have been inspired by designs from far earlier, often in other areas of tech. Earlier braun stuff is often shown to have a large inspiration on the design of the work by Apple/Jony Ive.

    In all honesty though the thing with minimalist design is that when you get rid of all the bling that companies seem to think users want you will eventually boil a design down to fundamentally the same design on the same thing... in the case of ram heatsinks it is literally either 1 or 2 pieces of metal connecting to the ram modules on the side.


    As to the design, personally I quite like this minimalist look, I just with they'd do more motherboards (they do a threadripper one, then ruin it with a huge rgb logo on the board...) and graphics cards like it... I don't really want all the bling and rgb rubbish, hell I don't want a see through window on my case either but that seems harder and harder to get now too. I do wish they were 3600 rather than 3200 though, that seems to be the sweet spot for ryzen from what I've seen.

    We see the Designare brand for creators as an analogue to the Aorus brand for gamers


    I was under the impression that "Creators" already have a lifestyle brand, it's called Apple and do they actually need/want need their own lifestyle brand for PC components? Imho most people I know, who could loosely be branded as creative types, couldn't give a toss what's inside their box, just so long as it works and how it looks on the outside.

    Eitherway this kind marketing bollox is totally putting me off my next Gigabyte purchase which was going to be a Z390 Designare. I'll just buy another (cheaper) Aorus Z390 Pro

    God I'm in a ranty mood today

    They look really smart and classy to me. Anyone that don't like Gigabyte could always paste some Wrigleys chewing gum labels over the name. lol.

    :
    I'm a creative type, do it for a living in fact, and I spent time making sure the inside of my case was colour co-ordinated etc, blue ram to match the blue accents on the motherboard etc, even though there is no window on the case lol. I'll be doing it with my upgrade too, in fact I'll probably go even further with the next one but then I might be a little outside your definition because I like pc's as well as a hobby...

    I've been looking at the Z390 Designare too. It's pretty expensive, but if you want / need Thunderbolt 3 on the PC, there aren't all that many alternatives...

    Yep that's why I'm considering it. Currently have a Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 pci-e card in the Aorus Z390 Pro and that works well but I was looking for a more integrated solution for the next build.

    Really at the end of the day I need to give up my Hackintosh habit and then I wouldn't be held hostage to Apple's hardware requirements.

    Well, if they classify themselves as Creators, like that with the capitalisation and everything, they're probably also the type to title themselves as Social Influencers too, I imagine... in which case Apple is indeed right up their.... err... alley.

    Daft as this is, ikea isn't really minimalist either, it would fall under 'scandinavian' because they seem to have been given their own term for the 'design language' that they seem to employ.

    Well, it has been quite Minimalist/Scandi at times... and still has its moments even today.
    All depends on how you define the already highly subjective terms... But rather than derail this thread, which is about RAM, I'll just post a link and suggest we take it to a new thread if you're interested?
