Apacer debuts DDR4 memory at 2133 MHz

Apacer debuts DDR4 memory at 2133 MHz

The future of memory modules is clear now – the currently popular DDR3 memory will gradually be retired by the faster and more power efficient DDR4 memory that also offers larger RAM capacities for all kinds of needs. To help this transition Apacer has launched its own DDR4 memory, following suit with companies like G.Skill, ADATA, Corsair and others.

The new Apacer memory does not appear to be anything special, though, if we do not take the implemented DDR4 memory technology inside. The new memory runs at 2133 MHz and features voltage of 1.2V, just like most other DDR4 memory on the market now. Although there’s no official information on the memory latencies we suspect that the new Apacer memory works at 15-15-15-35 timings. Burst data rate is 17 GB/sec, which is in unison with the 2133 MHz operating speed, while the 1.2V voltage delivers 25 per cent energy efficiency when compared to the current DDR3 memory crop. Like we said – nothing special here.

The good news comes now – Apacer says the new DDR4 memory is fully compatible with the latest Intel X99 chipset and the Haswell-E platform, which launch today. This means that hardware enthusiasts who plan to get a Haswell-E system will have a richer choice and access to, perhaps, cheaper DDR4 memory than what most other premium brands offer.

The pricing of the new Apacer DDR4 memory is unclear as of now. The new memory will be on the market as soon as possible.
