You might remember recently we talked about a new company called MetaRAM, started by former AMD CTO Fred Weber, that is set on expanding the amount of memory a system can access without the dramatic price increases we are used to. Of course, "expensive" is term that depends on the one using it, but TheInq has some shots of a demo system from IDF that can support up to 288GB of memory using the MetaRAM technology on the upc

US Modular is far better known for portable storage, usually flash based, but they are moving in to the field of DDR2. The first module up for review is the 2Gb dual channel Cold Fusion DDR2-800 kit, which runs at 4-12-4-4 at 2V. The Tech Lounge was shocked to see it beating out DIMMs from Corsair and other big names, but this kit has an Achilles' Heel, it does not overclock well. The other problem is that it doesn't seem to be for sale anywhere.

Or at least a bit higher on your Vista rating. With the wonderful drop in pricing that DDR2 is going through, 4GB kits are no longer something you have to sell a body part to afford. Many kits are appearing, and today Overclockers Club reviewed Mushkin's XP2 8000 Redline 4GB kit. Along with the increase in size has come a decrease in the amount of overclocking possible, and a loosening of the timings, but the scores still remain impressive.

Going with the highest speed DDR3 you can find is an expensive proposal. Kingston's HyperX DDR3-1625 2GB Memory Kit isn't cheap by any means, but it does provide you with 1625MHz RAM and a low latency for a DDR3 module. Think Computers did find some issues when using this memory at full speed on X38 and P35 m

Crucial, and other memory manufacturers, are doing a great job of keeping DDR2 alive as DDR3 matures. Speed increases are continuing, and the prices just keep getting better, which has prompted 4GB kits like the Crucial Ballistix Tracer
DDR2-800 4Gb kit. CPU3D tried the kit and it's blinking LEDs out and found that not only is this kit a cheap date, it enjoys going all the way.
