In comparison, the XPG v2 and Gaming modules offer extended height heatspreaders and 2oz copper 8-layer PCB. In addition to those 1600, 1866 and 2133 speeds shared with the v1, they are also available in faster 2400 and 2600, and in the case of XPG v2, 2800, 2933, 3000 and 3100 speeds. Price-wise, there does not seem to be much variation between the different ratings, at least until getting above the standard 2133 DDR3 ceiling. Stepping up to 2400 or 2600 requires laying out roughly 10-30 percent more, while going above that commands an exponential increase in cost. But staying within the limits of the XPG v1 range they are all about equal in price so the choice comes down to what speed your system supports.
Let's get the ADATA XPG v1.0 Black memory kit installed and see how it performs.
