ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4-2400 Memory Review



For bench-marking memory bandwidth we use AIDA64’s ‘Cache and Memory Benchmark’


As we can see our memory bandwidth performance has increased quite a bit on our overclocked configuration when compared to stock. While this isn’t the best performance we’ve seen out of a memory kit, it is within reason.


For bench-marking memory latency we use AIDA64’s ‘Cache and Memory Benchmark’


Like bandwidth, memory latency has improved substantially with our overclocked configuration. That being said, it is still falling behind other kits we’ve tested quite a bit.


Maxon’s Cinebench is a benchmarking tool based on their Cinema 4D software. It measures CPU performance by rendering a photo realistic 3D scene.


Our performance with Cinebench is actually pretty good, and surprisingly fairly consistent across all the configurations. Very interesting.


WinRAR is easily the most well-known file archiving program. In our test we use the application’s built-in benchmark utility in order to determine memory performance.


WinRAR always seems to be mostly CPU limited, while there is some variance between each configuration, it isn’t enough to even think about memory bottlenecks.


7-Zip is an open-source, completely free file archiving application which utilizes LZMA2 compression. We use their built-in bench-marking utility to measure our systems performance when compressing files.


Here we can see a slightly larger variance than with WinRAR, our overclocked configuration seems to be nearly 1 megabytes per second faster than the others. This is also in line with other kits we’ve tested, which shows that like WinRAR, 7-Zip is going to be more CPU limited than anything.

ADATA is no stranger to the DRAM market, they've been making high quality memory kits for both the consumer and enterprise markets for years, as well as consumer flash storage such as flash drives, SSDs and memory cards. Today we'll be reviewing the latest in their XPG gaming and enthusiast series: the ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4-2400 quad channel memory kit; which promises improved cooling efficiency and, DDR4 performance. PACKAGING, PRICING & SPECIFICATIONS  Taking a look at the packaging we'll see that all four of the DRAM modules can be clearly seen from either the front or back with the  labels facing…

A Good Kit!

the ADATA XPG Z1 offers respectable performance, some low-level overclocking and a rather cool design, and for the right price is a very appealing memory kit.

  1. Msimax Overclocker

    looks like you might have Samsung chips have you tried trd tcrp 16 or 17 when overclocking ? they don’t scale at 15

    • Hi thanks for the comment, and the tip!

      I did in fact try 16, but not 17 when overclocking. Unfortunately, due to time constraints we don’t get to test the RAM as vigorously as we’d like when overclocking, I still have this kit installed, so I may just try turning it up to 17, and report my findings, time allows.

      Thanks again for your feedback.
