Taiwanese high performance DRAM and NAND manufacturer Adata Technology has announced the launch of its latest XPG V2 series overclocking memory. The new XPG 3100 V2 memory modules, made with "special cooperation" from motherboard manufacturer Asrock, run at 3,100MHz with CL12 14-14-36 latency settings and a voltage of 1.65V. The new dual-channel memory is "designed to bring ultimate performance to gamers using Intel Core fourth-generation processors" and the Z87 platform.

Adata XPG V2 3100 features

  • Supports Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Profiles) version 1.3
  • Supports dual channel mode
  • RoHS compliant
  • Complies with JEDEC standards.
  • Uses high-quality 8-layer printed circuit boards and aluminium heat sink, effectively reducing the memory module temperature
  • Adopts Thermal Conductive Technology (TCT) thermal technology for heat dispersal
  • Supports Intel Core processors and the latest fourth-generation Z87 platform
  • Lifetime warranty

Adata's XPG 3100 V2 memory modules are initially only available in 4GB capacity and will ship in dual-channel optimised 8GB kits. At its default DDR3 1333 speeds the memory has a CAS latency of 9-9-9-24 using 1.5V, while at DDR3 3100 speeds it's at 12-14-14-36 using 1.65V. To implement these top speeds the modules are directly overclocked using Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Profiles). These memory modules, when running at 3,100MHz, will provide a bandwidth of 24,800MB/s.

Adata XPG V2 3100 specs

  • Model: XPG V2 DDR3 3100
  • Timing: DDR3 1333 CL9-9-9-24 at 1.5V
  • Density: DDR3 3100 CL12-14-14-36 at 1.65V (XMP Profile 1)
    8GB (4GB x 2)
  • Performance: 3100MHz (Frequency)
    Peak transfer rate: 24,800MB/sec
  • Voltage: 1.65 Volts
  • Colours: available in black or gold finishes

In the pictures of the modules above you can see the modules with their characteristic extruded heat dissipating fin design and Thermal Conductive Technology. The pricing of the Adata XPG 3100 V2 memory modules is unknown at this time.

That's a monster!! A wonder what DDR4 would offer by then!
Monster, yes. But… why? You'll shave .5 seconds off of unzipping an archive, gain 1fps in your average game, and never notice it the rest of time. It's just not worth it. We need a change in architecture to see real progress.

Oh, nevermind. This is just more rampant measurebating.
Out of curiosity would it make much difference if you had a ram drive. Although I have no experience of using one it occurred to me that it might be a situation where there would be a significant difference.

I have never seen any ram disk/drive investigation which talks about it although then I haven't gone liking into it.

APU gaming.

with frequencies like this, it is comparable to 16 GB of 1600MHz ram and even superior to 16 GB of lower end 1333MHz RAM
