While a lot of memory module manufacturers have been talking about DDR3 clock-speeds of about 2.0GHz and beyond, not many have so far managed to introduce such blazingly fast memory. However, A-Data, a large maker of memory modules, as well as Walton Chaintech, recently unveiled their PC3-16000 products.

A-Data Vitesta DDR3-2000X memory modules can operate at 2.0GHz with CL9 9-9-24 latency settings and 2.05V – 2.15V voltage settings. A-Data sells its Vitesta DDR3-2000X as 2GB dual-channel kit (two modules per 1GB), though, pricing of such memory modules is unknown.

Walton Chaintech, the company that used to be known primarily for its graphics cards and mainboards several years ago, also plans to introduce its Apogee GT Blazer-series memory modules, which will feature 2.0GHz clock-speed and CL9 8-8-24 timings, reports VR-Zone web-site. Pricing of such memory modules is also unclear.

The highest speed memory modules presently available from well-known memory module brands, such as Corsair Memory or OCZ Technology, can work at about 1.8 – 1.86GHz.

While 2.0GHz clock-speed may be considered as a milestone for memory modules, this milestone may be too high for the vast majority of chipsets and mainboards available. Theoretically, memory controller of the latest Intel X38 can handle 2.0GHz memory; however, according to people with knowledge of the matter, in reality it depends on the actual ASIC. Therefore, not many enthusiasts will be able to take advantage of 2000MHz memory modules at present.
