The folks at Adata announced an insanely fast DDR3 memory kit that can hit speeds up to 2600MHz, though it's interesting the company is taking aim at gamers instead of overclockers. It's true that PC gamers have a played a pivotal role in driving demand for increasingly faster components, but it seems to us this is the kind of kit a professional overclocker would have more interest in.
Regardless of the target audience, Adata's new XPG Gaming v2.0 Series DDR3 2600G DRAM 8GB modules come in dual-channel kits "designed and engineered to bring optimum performance" to Intel's Ivy Bridge processors and the Z77 platform, Adata says.
The modules support Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) verson 1.3 and are rated to run at up to 2600MHz with latency timings of 11-13-13-35 at 1.66V (XMP Profile 1). These 16GB kits (2x8GB) feature 2-ounce copper 8-layer printed circuit boards (PCBs) and Adata's Thermal Conductive Technology (TCT) to keep cool.
No word yet on price or availability, though as a point of reference, you can find Adata XPG Gaming v2.0 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-2400 kits selling for $160 street.
