ADATA are no stranger to ram that looks a little more “gaming-esque” than other manufacturers such as their new XPG Dazzle, the XPG Z1 is no different. They design has a faux carbon fiber logo with angled red anodized heat sinks. ADATA’s XPG Z1 8GB sticks are pretty decent DDR4-3000 but 8GB just barely covers the minimum requirements of most AAA and big budget indie titles of 2017.
Packaging is similar to our review of ADATA’s XPG Dazzle sticks as we got directly, they were not in anything fancy (just bubble wrap) but all in all, the packaging on retail units is standard. They come blister-packed with each of the sticks on display at the front and a little blurb on the back.
Default timings are 16-16-16-36 making it slightly higher than their Dazzle set and other ram on the market which usually sits closer to 15-15-15-35. Voltage levels is industry standard being 1.35v and if you want to see any other specifications you can use the model number AX4U3000W4G16-BBZ.
