Adata begins to officially sell DDR4 memory modules, unveils prices

Adata, one of the world’s largest independent makers of memory modules, this week introduced its first commercial DDR4 memory modules designed for high-end desktop (HEDT) PCs based on Intel Corp.'s Core i7-5800/5900-series “Haswell-E” microprocessors. The company even revealed recommended prices of its DDR4 products for the U.K. market.

At present Adata offers 8GB and 16GB Premier-series DDR4 un-buffered DIMMs rated to run at 2133MHz (2.133GHz) with 1.2V voltage setting. The modules come without heat-spreaders and are not designed for overclocking, which is quite strange, given the positioning of Intel’s HEDT platform in general as well as the Core i7-5800/5900-series “Haswell-E” microprocessors in particular. It is likely that enthusiast-class DDR4 memory from Adata will be released sometimes in September, when the new chips from Intel emerge on the market.

The DDR4 2133 U-DIMM is available through selected retailers and distributors for the MSRP of £55.99 for 8GB and £111.99 for 16GB, reports Hexus citing Adata’s press-release.

It is noteworthy that the 2133MHz DDR4 memory modules from Adata are actually more affordable than enthusiast-class 2133MHz DDR3 DIMMs, which is clearly a good news. If other makers follow Adata, then DDR4-based systems will not be significantly more expensive than DDR3-based PCs.

KitGuru Says: While it is clear that all memory module manufacturers will offer 2.13GHz DDR4 DIMMs this year, it will be interesting to see how high leading makers will push their enthusiast-class offerings. We do know that Crucial is working on 3GHz Ballistix DDR4 products, but what about even higher frequencies? Will the “Haswell-E” chips be good DDR4 overclockers? At present there are more questions than answers.
