The development of mobile memory chips is becoming faster day by day. It’s not been eight months since those speedy eMMC 4.5 chips were introduced and now Samsung’s next version of NAND is already here. Indeed, the South Korean company says it’s now in mass production of what it believes as the world’s fastest embedded memory.
Apacer has just introduced the ARES DDR3-3000 series with record-breaking clock rate reaching DDR3 3226 MHz at 2013 Computex Taipei. The ARES series is actually available in 2800 MHz, 2933 MHz and of course 3000 MHz options. Apacer will be offering two different dual-channel capacities: 8 GB (2x 4 GB) and 16 GB (2x 8 GB).
Mushkin will be expanding both their Stealth and Redline memory lines with new 2800 MHz kits. These DDR3 kits will be available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB kits with timings of 12-14-14-35 at 1.65V. The Stealth line has a sleek black matte design and is made for value and performance. Redline on the other hand has a vibrant red design and is made for overclockers.
We have been a huge fan of Avexir memory since they first came out. Their modules offer great performance, but I’m sure many of you know them for their colorful designs which will really light up the inside of your case. At Computex they are showing a few different memory modules to go with certain motherboards, of course ones that light up and a very unique PCI-Express light accessory.
We have not heard much from Crucial lately, but they do have some good announcements coming out of Computex this week. They have announced new additions to their Ballistix performance memory product family. These new additions include Crucial Ballistix Sport XT DDR3 memory kits and Crucial Ballistix Sport SODIMMs.
We know Corsair for many different types of products these days from cases and gaming peripherals, but they started out as a memory company and still make memory to this day. At Computex Corsair has announced a new memory kit series in the Vengeance Pro Series of DDR3 memory kits.
Want to talk about some fast memory? How about 3000 MHz memory? Well G.SKILL has just announced their fastest DDR3 memory kit. The 32GB (8GBx4) TridentX DDR3 kit operates at 3000 MHz with timings of 12-14-14-35 at 1.65V. This new kit is designed for the latest 4th Generation Intel Core processors and the Z87 chipset.
ADATA has announced the successor to their very popular XPG memory series the XPG V2 Series, which is specifically designed for 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors and the Z87 platform. The XPG V2 modules all feature 2oz copper, 8 layer PCB (Printed Circuit Board) aluminum heat spreaders employing Thermal Conductive Technology (TCT).
If you did not know Kingston has been celebrating their 10th Anniversary of HyperX this year. We actually reviewed their 10th Anniversary HyperX kit not that long ago. Continuing their celebration they have updated the printed circuit boards (PCBs) to black on two of their memory line the HyperX Beast and the new HyperX Black.
It looks like Corsair has another first on their hands. They have just announced their new Vengeance Extreme 8GB dual channel memory kits, which are rated at 3000MHz! That makes them the world’s fastest rated production PC memory kits! These new 2x4GB kits have timings of 12-14-14-36 at 1.5V. They are air cooled and use simple “racing red” heat spreaders. Corsair will also include a Kingpin cooling memory cooler for overclockers who want to use LN2.
