Aeneon is another of the companies trying to keep DDR2 competitive, having just introduced the XTune DDR2-1142 2GB kit. With timings of 5-5-5-12 and that extra bit of speed, these modules can compete with some of the other top name brands. Unfortunately, they are not for sale yet but you can see how they perform at Tweaktown.
"XTune is Aeneon's brand of enthusiast level memory modules. While our first encounter with the XTune was less than fantastic,
we don’t reject companies from coming back with new products to try out. Today we have the newest addition, being a DDR2
package. That’s right; DDR2 still lives and it’s definitely not going anywhere soon.
The kit sent to us is the DDR2-1142MHz overclocked pack with 2x1GB modules for a total of 2GB in Dual Channel; ideal for both
Intel and AMD. These modules aren’t rated for Phenom’s 1066MHz memory controller, but that shouldn’t stop it from working with
a bit of a boost in memory voltage."
