I am old enough to remember when home PCs started to become more and more popular however, upgrades to the PCs were extremely expensive. A 250 megabyte hard drive, that’s right I said megabyte, could cost upwards of $500.00 and RAM was extremely expensive. I remember the cost of an 8 megabyte module being over $1000.00. Thankfully the laws of supply and demand took place and these upgrades are no where near those costs any more. A decent 8 Gigabyte memory kit can be had for less than $50.00.
ADATA has recently released their high performance XPG memory kits to the masses. The kits come in the 8 and 16 Gigabyte flavors with a variety of speeds and timings. The ADATA XPG DDR3 2133 memory kits feature a heat spreader with unique channels and cooling properties. How does this kit fare in our tests? Read on to find out.
