ADATA has recently officially released their next generation high performance XPG DDR3 memory module – the ADATA XPG V3 DDR3 overclocking memory module. The XPG V3 features speeds of up to 31000MHz and comes in dual channel kits. The XPG V3 DDR3 is geared towards PC enthusiasts and PC gamers who use 4th Gen Intel Core Haswell / Haswell Refresh / Devil’s Canyon, and upcoming 5th generation Broadwell processors; and the latest Intel Z97 platform. Check out the rest of its features and specifications below.
ADATA XPG V3 DDR3 Features
The Thermal Conductive Technology for Great Heat Dissipation
With speed up to 3100 MHz and transfer bandwidth reaching 24.8 GB/s, the ADATA XPG V3 series once again pushes gaming to the next level. It supports Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) version 1.3 and utilizes the Thermal Conductive Technology (TCT), which reduces the system temperature effectively. It enables every chip have contact with the heat sinks directly, ensuring IC and PCB operate in an environment of equal temperature for the best stability, even in full-speed operation.
No Crash with Great Stability
Thanks to the detachable fins extended upwards and 8-layer PCBs with 2oz copper, the ADATA XPG V3 series provides superior cooling performance and stable data transfer. The 2oz copper can greatly decrease electric resistance and consumes less power for higher efficiency. It also helps to improve the integrity of signal transfer by the lower EMI (ElectroMagnetic Interference), enabling overclockers to get excellent benchmarks in the circumstance of great stability and stable signal.
Beautiful and Durable – Inside and Out
The detachable fin heat sinks can be replaced and fastened by screws, making the ADATA XPG V3 series more durable for long-term use. In addition, there’s one more pair of fins included in the package for the 1st lot of shipment, allowing users to exchange the fins and create the coolest rig! For safety and excellent service, all XPG gaming modules are RoHS compliant and come with a lifetime warranty.

Price and Availability
As of today, ADATA hasn’t revealed its manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the ADATA XPG V3 DDR3 memory modules. Expect that DDR3-1600 is the cheaper once, and then price goes up as the memory’s speed goes higher. Expect also that the DDR3-3100 will be one insanely expensive memory module. I’ll try to post update once the XPG V3 becomes available to order online.
Just a note, in my experience with testing different memory modules that comes with different speed, there is no really significant performance difference to the memory modules running at 1600MHz or 1866MHz compared to memory modules running at 2400Mhz and higher. There’s a difference, but in real world application, the difference is not that noticeable and sometimes you can’t tell any difference at all. For a PC gamer just get a 1600MHz or 1866MHz, and then invest more on graphics card.
