ADATA Launches XPG V2 DDR3-2800 Memory Kits

Adata is rolling out some new memory modules: the XPG V2 DDR3-2800s. According to Adata, the XPG V2 memory kits are optimized to be used with the fourth generation of Intel Core processors and the Z87 chipset. At first, the kits will appear in two versions: one with two DIMMs of 4 GB and another with two DIMMs of 8 GB, making for a total of 8 GB and 16 GB, respectively. The modules will have timings of 12-14-14-36, a memory speed of up to 2800 MHz, and will require 1.65 V to accomplish this.

The modules will be built using the 2 oz copper PCB with eight layers, as well as feature aluminum heat sinks with an eye-catching design.

The company has released no information about the kits' pricing or availability. What we do know is that the two kits will both be available in two different colors: Gold and Tungsten Grey.

    Wow. This RAM looks NICE. Wish they had lower speed and cheaper modules with the same heatsinks but in blue as well because they really catch the eye.

    hmm isnt it bad to use overclocked ram (1.65v)? unless they changed it for haswell
  • TheBigTroll
    Fast ram still doesnt do much to increasing your performance. the timings are also loose as hell

    Clocking it at 1600mhz and lowering the latency will do a lot more for gaming then 2800mhz at that latency
