    Comment?

    Well having benched the memory. I think they perform well (and they do over 1800 as you can see in the review, at CL7.) 1800 MHz at CL7 = 900 MHz at CL3,5 by DDR2 standards. So I think that is not very bad at all. DDR3 will eventually manage 1800 at CL6, 2000 at CL7. But I am sure we will see these numbers as DDR3 memory matures over time.

    It will only get better from here on out. The interesting part is, that the A-DATA modules only cost 150€s. Which is rather cheap for DDR3 in this speed range.

    cheers

    Well the cheapest 1200 MHz CL5-5-5-18 DDR2 Kits sell for round 100-105€s around here in Europe...so I think the ~50€ premium is justified, especially as it does 1800 at CL7. Sure prices will drop even further ;)

    cheers
