ADATA releases 3100 MHz DDR3 memory
ADATA memory has broken another frontier on the memory market – the Taiwanese memory maker has released DDR3 SDRAM that runs at full 3100 MHz.
The new memory product belongs to the high-end XPG V3 DDR3 overclocking memory line and has been designed to be super speedy and super durable. Designed for use with Intel Z97-based motherboards the memory offers CAS latency of 12 clocks and capacities of 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) and 16 GB (2 x 8 GB). The memory PCBs make the difference – they not only use high-quality components but also feature eight layers and 2 oz of copper. Big heatsinks cool the memory chips and ensure that all chips are sufficiently cooled. Hardware enthusiasts can remove the heat sinks if they feel like it, though.
Along with this ultra-fast DDR3-3100 memory ADATA has launched slower memory of the same class. The slowest models will run at 1600 MHz at CAS latency of 9 clocks. The capacity and cooling stay the same.
There’s no information on the pricing of the memory but we are sure that the 3100 MHz memory kits will be very expensive.
