A-DATA intros 4GB DDR3 RAM sticks for Macs, PCs

updated 04:25 pm EDT, Tue July 28, 2009


Taiwan-based A-DATA announced on Tuesday it will soon release single 4GB DDR3 DRAM modules as part of its performance memory offerings. The high-capacity sticks will be available in the U-DIMM configuration for desktop applications, SO-DIMM for notebooks and unbuffered ECC-DIMM/ECC Registered DIMM for workstations and servers. Other than the higher capacity, A-DATA touts less energy use than when using two sticks to achieve the same total capacity.

Tests have shown compatibility with newer Intel Core 2 and Xeon systems as well as all Core i7 systems. No pricing or release dates for the 4GB memory sticks have been released. [via SlashGear]

    Mac Mini

    What is the maximum amount of RAM that a new Mac Mini can take advantage of? 8 gigs would be great, but I think I read that it can't address more than 6 gigs.

    Are they going to be the ultra expensive sticks, or are they using the new fabrication processes that have started to be announced the past week or so?

    No Way

    A while back I bought three A-DATA USB thumb drives, of which two were DOA. There's no way I would trust their RAM in any of my computers.

    I stick with Kingston, Corsair, OWC or Mushkin. None of these have let me down yet.
