It's been quite some time since out last memory review. Today we are having a look at one 16 GB dual channel kit from ADATA. This kit belongs to their XPG Xtreme Series and offers large capacity without cutting performance. Running at DDR3-2133 MHz, it isn't the fastest high capacity kit around. But ADATA is known for their quality better than oustanding high speed that you can't reach, so let's see what they came up with!

Below you will find the specifiations of the kit we tested.

Manufacturer ADATA
Series XPG Xtreme Series
Part Number AX3U2133XW8G10-2X
Type DDR3
Capacity 16 GB (2 x 8GB)
Frequency 2'133 MHz
Timings 10-11-11-30
VDIMM 1.65 Volt
Registred/Unbuffered Unbuffered
Cooling Passive Heatspreader
Waranty Lifetime warranty
Package Type Plastic Blister

This kit is the second fastest 16 GB kit ADATA currently have in their lineup. They also have a DDR3-2400 MHz in their XPG Gaming V2.0 series. These speeds should be fine enough for the majority of Ivy Bridge CPUs out there. For the record the integrated memory controller starts to struggle at DDR3-2400 for the vast majority. So offering higher rated memory will only target very few of us, even our processor which has one of the best integrated controller in the world can't do more than DDR3-2666 400 % stable.
Timings aren't that shy if you consider the rated speed and the capacity of one module.
