In today's venture we will be pitting the A-DATA Vitesta against our trusty old OCZ XMP test kit which we have been using for quite some time in our test bed. These modules have proven to hit over 1700MHz, but for today's result we kept it to the same 1688MHz for both. The OCZ memory was able to lower its timings to 7-6-7-20 for the XMP tests as well as the OC tests. Will this give it any extra boost? Let's find out.

Starting off with the pure synthetic bandwidth tests, we see that both modules at 1333MHz indicate no difference in performance; both run the same latencies.


At 1600XMP mode, we see OCZ just a tiny bit ahead. At OC mode, OCZ still have a couple of points in its favor, but nothing extensive.
