If you have a need for some serious speed in your system setup, Adata hopes to be your Top Gun with its new flavors of XPG Series DDR3 memory. Now available at a blistering 2133MHz, Adata's new XPG Xtreme Series 2133X kits come in 8GB (2x4GB) and 16GB (2x8GB) dual-channel kits, though there's nothing stopping you from picking up a pair and running them in a quad-channel configuration.
OCZ today introduced new high-speed 4GB modules aimed at enthusiasts and prosumers. According to OCZ, the new sticks are ideal for intensive multi-tasking, gaming, or home server use.
"Usually high speed and high density don't go hand in hand, but our newly introduced high density 2133MHz memory solutions are engineered to do exactly that," said Alex Mei, CMO at the OCZ Technology Group. "Designed for more than just raw speed, these new kits deliver an excellent blend of performance, density, and reliability for a wide range of applications ranging from rendering video to smoother gameplay on the latest titles."
The new 4GB modules can be found in several of OCZ's memory products, including the Flex EX, Reaper HPC, and Platinum series, and are available in either 8GB (dual-channel) or 12GB (triple channel) configurations.
It wasn't that long ago when DDR2-1066 was considered high-end, and while DDR2 modules are still making a case for themselves with crazy-low prices, DDR3 continues to separate itself with insanely high clockspeeds. How high? Try twice as fast (on paper) as yesterday's top offerings.
Setting the bar is Corsair, who just released what the company rightfully claims is the world's fastest DDR3 memory solution in production volume. The new Dominator TW3X2G2133C9DF screams along at 2133MHz, the only kit on the market guaranteed to run at that speed.
"Our engineers have been working hard to achieve this astounding speed of 2133MHz," said John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair. "This is a tremendous accomplishment to be able to manufacture memory modules at this speed in production volumes," added Beekley.
The record-breaking modules aren't for the faint of heart carrying an MSRP of $575, with stock available right now.
