ADATA Releases 8 GB DDR3-1600 Memory Modules

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash application products, today introduced new industry-leading, single piece 8 GB DDR3-1600 high-density memory modules. Known for industry-high standards of quality control and meticulous device engineering, the new modules will meet and exceed expectations of customers who seek performance and quality in DRAM products.

With this launch ADATA is continuing its tradition as an industry leader in DRAM product line-up. These 8 GB Premier Series DDR3-1600 single piece memory modules allow users to boost system performance over the limitations of memory slot availability.

The Premier Series 1600Mbps DDR3 240-Pin (Unbuffered DIMM) are standard pin design modules operating at 1.5 volts, with bandwidth up to 12.8 Gb/second (PC3 12800). The memory modules are made of cutting edge high density 4 Gb DRAM, so they operate faster, consume less power, and hence operate at cooler temperatures. All the modules are in accordance with JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council, JEDEC Solid State Technology Association) and RoHS design and production standards, simultaneously ensuring compatibility with all computer systems adopting the same standard, and are ecologically sound products. ADATA Series memory modules come with lifetime warranty and service, providing consumers the best protection.

Product Features

- 8GB
- 240-Pin Unbuffered DIMM / 204-Pin SO-DIMM
- Complies with JEDEC specifications
- Utilizes FBGA (Fine-Pitch Ball Grid Array) package
- RoHS compliant

8GB sodimms? :3

just thinking of 16GB of ram in my laptop hurts my brain.

I could load a Blu-ray to a ramdisk, then feed a 2011 socket CPU with enough data to keep it processing at 100% continuously until that video stream is compressed. I'd love to say this is a great idea, but...

32 GB of RAM currently runs around $190 for a good pair of 4 channel sets. A good 60 GB SSD runs at $90. With the price premium attached, 64 GB of RAM will probably run over $600. I could get 32 GB of RAM, 2 60 GB SSDs to run in RAID, and have enough money left over to purchase a medium performance video card.

Why would I want 64 GB of RAM then? The one or two programs that could utilize that amount of RAM are out of the consumer pricing range, and the ramdisk is an expensive and foolish proposition.

Maybe whenever the 8 GB sticks reach reasonable levels this is worth looking at. Otherwise, this is useless to 99% of users. Though I bet this is an excellent bit of news for those that run servers.
