After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

  • A-DATA Vitesta 800 Memory Review



    We have actually been sitting on these memory modules for quite some time in hopes of finding a comparable module to use in our benchmarks. However, as time progressed (overnight it would seem) the DDR2 market exploded from virtually nothing to an abundance of modules both filling the Low Latency and high-speed memory markets. Despite this overnight change you'll find that even the older modules with relaxed timings are still competitive and overclock quite well. This happens to be the case with our DDR2 800 Modules from A-DATA. While these particular modules have been moved to their mainstream memory lines the Vitesta name lives on to support their Low Latency and High Performance products.

    Of course the last item we wish to discuss isn't really a feature but more of a "perk" and happens to be the "Sexy" red heatspreaders. There isn't much more I can say about them except that the new versions are quite nice. They feature a red anodized coating with the A-DATA logo in raised letters and a rough machined finish. If you get a chance be sure to check them out. You can also find a close up of these heatspreaders in our Day 1 coverage at CES.
