Adata Releases XPG DDR3-2600 Gaming Memory

By - Source: Adata | B 16 comments

Adata has released its flagship gaming memory SKU, a 16 GB kit with two 2,600 MHz DDR3 DIMMs.

Adata has released a new top-model in its XPG Gaming V2.0 DDR3 memory lineup. This is a 16 GB kit that has two modules of 8 GB of 2,600 MHz DDR3 memory. The memory modules, as the name indicates, is targeted towards gamers and enthusiasts.

The DIMMs have timings of CL11-13-13-35. They also run on a higher voltage of 1.65 V. In order to make the 2,600 MHz clock speed attainable, Adata has included support for the 1.3 release of the XMP (Extreme Memory Profile).

The units are also covered by a big heat spreader, which should make the units run more stable and cool. The heat spreaders are fastened firmly with two screws.

So far there has been no word on official MSRP pricing or availability.

    I want a nice sex of 2x4gb or 2x2gb with crazy speed, low voltage and low timings, so I can use it in overclocking!

    Kind of an odd name as it will not help your games any more than say DDR3-1066. Read the reviews, SSDs and supper fast RAM are just money down the...

    Why oh why would it be considered gaming ram is beyond me! Voltage is high, heat spreader is useless on DDR3, timing is nothing exceptional. All in all, this is just another set of RAM. Maybe it's a gaming set because it's greenish like Nvidia's card?? Would like to hear from the manufacturer on that. I can't help but wonder why is Tom posting this. If it's sponsored, it should say so to be honest.

    Plus on Intel rigs you can't really use it unless you want your warranty voided.

    Sounds far from perfect to me, Still needs a little work. So maybe back to the drawing board for a little fine tuning.
