Home Reviews Memory Modules ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4-2800 16GB Memory Review

DDR4 memory is fast replacing the older DDR3 memory modules. Prices have already gone down significantly since the first DDR4 became available in the market. Today, we are going to take a look and review the ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 memory, the company’s first DDR4 memory geared towards enthusiasts and PC gamers. The memory kit that we have here is the ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4-2800 16GB CL17 quad channel kit which is primarily designed for an X99 system, but can be used on a Z170 system as well. In this review we will test the ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 on both an X99 system and a Z170 motherboard. Please continue reading and find out how this memory kit performs in our review below.

ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 Memory Review

The ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 memory is the company’s first overclocking memory module. Since it belonged to the XPG series, the company’s high performance line geared towards enthusiasts, overclockers and PC gamers, we expect that it would offer better performance compared to a typical DDR4 DRAM module. The XPG Z1 DDR4 was primarily designed to support the latest Intel Haswell-E platform (Intel X99-based motherboards), but it can also be used on the new Z170-based motherboards powered by an Intel’s 6th generation Skylake processors.

Compared to a DDR3 DRAM module, the ADATA XPG Z1 features superior power efficiency with a reduction of 20%, consuming only 1.2V versus the 1.5V of a DDR3 memory. It has a base clock speed of 2133MHz but can run up to 3300MHz (depending on the memory kit’s configuration). It features transfer bandwidth of up to 22.4 GB/s and fully supports Intel XMP 2.0 Extreme Memory Profile.

ADATA is using a high-quality 10-layer black PCB with 20z of copper in their XPG Z1 DDR4 DRAM modules for superior stability and cooling performance. It also features a stylish triangular heat sink with Thermal Conductive Technology (TCT) for great heat dissipation. The heat sink is available in red, gold and while colors.

I’ll discuss more of its features as we take a closer look at the ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 memory on the next page. Meanwhile, below are the memory’s specifications and some information based on the AIDA64’s SPD information.
