Well-known affordable memory manufacturer ADATA has just announced the availability of the refreshed XPG Xtreme Series DDR3 lineup, on its official website. Two kits are available with 8 GB and 16 GB total capacities, respectively.
The new ADATA
XPG Xtreme Series DDR3-2133X has a 2133 MHz working frequency and an operating voltage of 1.65V. The latency settings are 10/11/11/30 and these are claimed by the company to achieve a total bandwidth of up to 34.1 GB per second.
The memory modules use a high quality 8-layer PCB and selected memory chips that are specially designed for the XPG line.
The modules come with efficient heatspreaders that are in direct contact with the memory chips. We don’t exactly know what ADATA is trying to say with this, as the memory chips should, at least, have some thermal interface material to improve the heat transfer.
It’s likely that they’ve given up the low performance heat pads and now use some sort of TIM (thermal interface material).
The new kits also fully support Intel
’s XMP (extreme memory profiles) version 1.3.
The operating voltage is 1.65 volts and the prices stand at 89.99 USD for the 8 GB version and 189.99 USD for the 16 GB kit.
That’s around 70 EUR and 149 EUR, respectively, when it comes to the European market.
