A-DATA Gaming Series PC3-12800 (1600MHz) 8GB Kit - Total Value Rating (TVR)

A-DATA mix it up a bit and double the normal Dual Channel kit to 8GB. How's it fair in our testbed? Let's take a look and see.

Total Value Rating

 

The TVR graph is the TPR score divided by the price of the memory kit. The price of the memory kit is based on the list price of the model on Newegg.com. In the event the kit isn't listed, it will be based on the U.S. $ MSRP given to us by the manufacturer.

 

In the event we can't source a price from either, the product will not receive a TVR rating. As with our TPR graph, the amount of memory kits on the list will grow over time and the price of the model won't change from what it was when first reviewed. For this reason the U.S. $ price that the kit is based off will be included next to the name of the model.

 

In the event you want to find the TVR rating yourself based on the current price, all you have to do is simply divide the TPR number by the list price.

 

TVR numbers are rounded to the nearest whole number; 100.3 will be 100; 100.8 will be 101 and 100.5 will be rounded down to 100.

Because our tests don't show the best benefits when moving to more actual memory and instead benefits more from the speed of the kit, the higher price tag combined with the performance received at the default timings again don't do the kit a whole lot of justice.
