Adata Launches a DDR3 2600MHz Memory Kit, Tells Games 'Come Get Some'

Didn't know "Overclockers" were a completely different species from "Gamers" with zero overlap. Prejudice tells me that the overclocker is a subspecies of the gamer tribe. But now I know they are separated by a common interest and goal. ~Watch the WebGuyFixingCars-farce :)



I put 16Gb of RAM into my latest build to support the CPU, SSD and GPU. I don't like waiting for Word or Excel to load and/or bring the whole system to a state of collapse owing to their morbidly obese coding. It works, too.

My theory of computer building is that if it can handle the games that are out there now, even MS can be handled!



Gamers are a bigger Consumer Base. If you want to move volume...Still, overclockers have to be drooling.



Is Adata basically saying, "Get on my level, son!"? I don't know if I could ever get on that level...



Now AMD just needs to get its APUs to run at these speeds, instead of the lowly 1866 Mhz that they have only rather recently attained :(

I'd like to think that they've achieved much faster memory access speeds for their APU already, since they're using GDDR5 as unified memory in the PS4 and if they haven't then the speed strikes me as being wasted.

I'd like to see an APU set to run at these speeds with the GPU "direct memory access" that AMD has said they're working towards.



y would this be marketed toward gamers? It would be more intelligent for a gamer to buy a decently quick kit and spend the extra money of good GFX. That being said, drop the price (that I am sure is insanely high) and this would be great for an APU setup.



Can't be that high if 16 GB, in 2 sticks, is available at 200 Mhz less for a mere $160.

Though since this is a dual-channel, 2 DIMM, kit a "real" Intel machine using it would need 2x of the kit, which would be pretty steep...but if you're using quad-channel Intel, price is no object (if it is, you're doin' it wrong).



I would rather have tighter timings then a faster clock. Because anything above 1600MHZ is pretty much useless to gamers.



There's a good chance it will run tighter at lower frequencies. That's typically how it works with higher frequency kits -- they hold tight at lower speeds, but are binned to run higher when you relax the timings.
