The suckers will be lining up to pay a premium price for this hyped 2600 MHz. RAM that doesn't deliver any significant improvement in system performance as confirmed by Tom's, Anandtech and many other sources. It's a pity that companies are not require to fully disclose the facts regarding their hyped products.

Wanna bet that I have the same performance in games with some 2133 Mhz modules??

No, because that's not the point.

Perfect match for my Atari 2600 emulator.

That's not the point though is it, heck I can argue the same about an i3 and 1600mhz RAM in a lot of cases, people like to overclock and bench surprisingly enough...

I have 2400mhz memory....I notice zero difference between 1600mhz and 2400mhz...pointless ram is pointless...Sure it increases those imaginary bench scores but other than that nothing....not one bit of difference.

Why not 2666? Is Sandy Bridge dead or something? Or maybe, just maybe... they're run by some religious nutbags.

I don't see the latency listed, if it's not C10 there's no point.

[EDIT] Didn't see that these were 8GB modules. Tom's Hardware has more detailed specs: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/adata-XPG-Gaming-2600MHz-ram,22122.html

That means these are using Hynix H5TQ4G83MFR 4GBit ICs, so they aren't going to be able to do low latencies like C9 at 2400 or C10 at 2600/2666. However, they can potentially reach 1400MHz by tweaking volts and timings (probably 1.70v+ and 12-14-14).
