Just a couple weeks ago Kingston made headlines when they launched the world’s fastest DDR2 memory modules. The new speed grade was called PC2-6000 and runs at a frequency of 750MHz with 4-4-4 timings. Today we take a look at PC2-6000 memory versus PC2-5400 memory and see which comes on top.
By using the just released Corsair XMS PC-5400UL modules Legit Reviews has managed to surpass the 1000MHz memory barrier by a hair. This was done by running at 500.3MHz or 1000.6MHz DDR2 at loose 5-5-5-15 timings. Did we mention that this was also done on the new Intel Dual Core CPU?
Corsair Memory is moving to a new bigger building with more office space and we were on hand to take a peak months in advance. We also saw some unreleased Ultra Low latency DDR2 675MHz memory that they are showing off at IDF this week. How does 3-2-2 timings at 675MHz on DDR2 sound?
