Final Thoughts

DDR3 still hasn't managed to take over the memory market as the modules of choice; they are still to expensive for the common users, and clock for clock they aren't any faster than DDR2. However, DDR2 has reached its limits; 1200MHz clock speeds are the wall; only a few have managed this.

DDR3 is now approaching 2000MHz and beyond; systems are now able to reach FSBs beyond the 550MHz mark, and using 1:2 memory ratios will see them taking home some very impressive scores.

A-DATA's XMP kit is extremely impressive; it was able to obtain its desired XMP rating and even pushed out a little bit extra. While we did hit a wall not that much past its rated speed, it's still a great module to have, especially if you're running an X38 or X48 chipset.
