ADATA XPG V2 2800MHz 8GB Memory Kit Review

SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. It should provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software.

Sandra is a (girl’s) name of Greek origin that means “defender”, “helper of mankind”. We think that’s quite fitting.

It works along the lines of other Windows utilities, however it tries to go beyond them and show you more of what’s really going on. Giving the user the ability to draw comparisons at both a high and low-level. You can get information about the CPU, chipset, video adapter, ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals, AGP, PCI, PCI-X, PCIe (PCI Express), database, USB, USB2, 1394/Firewire, etc.

Native ports for all major operating systems are available:

  • Windows XP, 2003/R2, Vista, 7, 2008/R2 (x86)
  • Windows XP, 2003/R2, Vista, 7, 2008/R2 (x64)
  • Windows 2003/R2, 2008/R2* (IA64)
  • Windows Mobile 5.x (ARM CE 5.01)
  • Windows Mobile 6.x (ARM CE 5.02)

All major technologies are supported and taken advantage of:

  • SMP – Multi-Processor
  • MC – Multi-Core
  • SMT/HT – Hyper-Threading
  • MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE 4.1, SSE 4.2, AVX, FMA – Multi-Media instructions
  • GPGPU, DirectX, OpenGL – Graphics
  • NUMA – Non-Uniform Memory Access
  • AMD64/EM64T/x64 – 64-bit extensions to x86
  • IA64 – Intel* Itanium 64-bit

Sandra Mem Band

ADATA’s 2800MHz modules are almost tied with Avexir’s 3000MHz kit in the Sandra memory bandwidth test. The 2800MHz CL12 kit cannot match the bandwidth of the slower-clocked, but lower latency Corsair and Patriot kits.

Sandra cache bandwidth

Cache bandwidth paints a similar picture to the memory bandwidth test. ADATA’s 2800MHz XPG V2 modules trail the 3000MHz chips from Avexir by around 2.2%.

sandra cache & mem latency

As we have observed in the past, the high-frequency memory kits show excellent latency results. In Sandra’s Cache and Memory Latency test, ADATA’s XPG V2 memory kit is able to take a clear second place, outpacing the next contender – Corsair’s 2400MHz Vengeance Pro set – by almost 5%.
