Only a week remains till the world get its hands on the latest DDR4 memory and Haswell-E HEDT CPUs. We have seen several DDR4 memory modules in the past weeks starting from Crucial Ballistix Elite, Corsair Dominator Platinum and Corsair Vengeance LPX. All of these are available for pre-order from Overclockers UK with high VAT taxes. Now the UK retailer has extended the pre-order list with the already announced ADATA XPG Z1 and Avexir Platinum DDR4 quad channel kits. ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 memory speed ranges from 2133 MHz to 2800 MHz while Avexir Platinum is only available with 2400 MHz in 16 GB and 32 GB kits.
ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 Memory available for pre-order
ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 memory is available in quad-channel kits in 16 GB and 32 GB capacities. Pretty much all the DDR4 kits have similar specifications but ADATA steps up a notch by introducing tighter CL 13-13-13-31 timings on its low latency 2133 MHz kit. ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 memory kits are rated to work at 1.2 v with support of Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) 2.0 and come with a lifetime warranty.
The list of memory kits is given below:
|ADATA XPG Z1 (AX4U2133W4G15-QRZ)||16 GB||2133 MHz||15-15-15-35||£199.99|
|ADATA XPG Z1 (AX4U2133W8G15-QRZ)||32 GB||2133 MHz||15-15-15-35||£399.95|
|ADATA XPG Z1 (AX4U2133W8G13-QRZ)||32 GB||2133 MHz||13-13-13-31||£439.99|
|ADATA XPG Z1 (AX4U2400W4G16-QRZ)||16 GB||2400 MHz||16-16-16-35||£239.99|
|ADATA XPG Z1 (AX4U2400W8G16-QRZ)||32 GB||2400 MHz||16-16-16-35||£469.99|
|ADATA XPG Z1 (AX4U2800W4G17-QRZ)||16 GB||2800 MHz||17-17-17-39||£349.99|
|ADATA XPG Z1 (AX4U2800W8G17-QRZ)||32 GB||2800 MHz||17-17-17-39||£666.66|
ADATA XPG Z1 16 GB 2133 MHz kit is something one would keep an eye for since its priced similarly to DDR3 modules. The rest do have faster speeds and high capacities but the prices are on the higher side. This is common since UK imposes a hefty 20% VAT on computer hardware. Never the less users of Haswell-E will have plenty of options to choose from although ADATA did not introduce any 2666 MHz kits in its XPG Z1 line up.
