Companies are having some great success with the new A75 platform, achieving RAM speeds of 2400MHz+ DDR, strong overclocks and doing all that fun stuff we've become so used to doing with the AMD platform.
I think the biggest surprise about the A75 platform isn't that it just performs so well when you leave the clocks alone, but the fact that it can be overclocked so well and you can have so much fun with it. Hitting memory speeds of 2000MHz+ DDR while possible on the Phenom line up was quite rare, hitting higher was even rarer.
Last year we looked at a great kit of RAM from G.Skill. The Flare Kit came with a stock speed of 2000MHz DDR and a timing setup of 7-9-7-24 @ 1.65v.
The worst thing about the kit was that its compatibility list for motherboards was a little small and we ended up getting to only 2127MHz DDR. This was the best kit of RAM for the AMD platform, though. The issue is that you could only get so much out of the kit, not because of the speed it offered, but because of the AMD platform. It was picky about RAM, it didn't like running at high speeds and the Intel platform was offering RAM kits well in excess of 2200MHz DDR.
Since the launch of the A75 platform we've been using the Flare Kit again which had been gathering dust for months. Today, combined with the Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum we just reviewed, the AMD A8-3850 which has embedded itself in our heart so quickly and the G.Skill Flare kit, we will show you what this new platform is capable of when it comes to memory overclocking.
Because of the nature of the article, there's no real "format" to follow. Considering all the products we're using today have also been reviewed, there's no real need to go into great detail on the products. What we'll do is have a look at our testbed setup and then start to check out some screenshots of our memory clocks as we go higher and higher.
