Superior Overclocking Performance: DDR3-1600X triple channel over 2000MHz
Just recently A-DATA has introduced a new cooling solution, specifically designed to meet the requirements of A-DATA's performance X series of memory modules. However, with the latest development, it has made one a step further towards its goal of claiming the supremacy in the high-end computer memory market. Bear in mind that the memory controller integrated on Core i7 processors provides three memory channels, i.e. it is capable of accessing three (or six) memory modules at the same time, in parallel, in order to improve performance. Triple-channel architecture gets a 50% increase of available bandwidth compared to a dual-channel architecture running at the same clock speed.
In order to fulfill pros' overclocking demands and to provide top-end users with the best memory solutions, A-DATA announced today that A-DATA OC-Lab achieved an astounding speed over 2000MHz and a memory read speed of 20,515 MB/s in triple channel configuration. This frequency was achieved using A-DATA DDR3-1600X memory modules paired with an ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard and Core i7 CPU.
