Mushkin's XP2-6400 is 800MHz
DDR2 with latencies of 4-4-3-10, and sits between 1.9V-2.1V.  Once techPowerUp! verified the RAM was stable, they tested it up to 568 MHz @ 5-5-5-15 by bumping the voltage up to 2.35V.  They were disappointed that they couldn't get the DIMMS down to 3-2-2-4, but they decided the overclocking capabilities it exhibited makes this RAM a good deal.

The new kid on the block is DDR3, with high frequencies, but also high timings.  TweakTown tries out a set of 1066 DDR2 and DDR3 DIMMs by overclocking the DDR3 to 1333 and 1500 with the best timings they can manage, and going gaming.  You can get a good idea as to whether the technology is mature enough that you want to switch, or stay with high speed DDR2.

Kingston has announced it's new lineup of low(er) latency DDR3.  The timings available on DRR3 will take some getting used to, as even these tightly timed DIMMs look sloppy compared to high end DDR2, but the as the actual clockspeed increases, those timings won't seem so bad.  The modules AnandTech tested are rated at DDR3-1375 @ 7-7-7-20, and when they were clocked up to 1520 @ 8-8-8-22 they left Corsair's Dominators in the dust.
