DDR3 is getting faster, and now that we are seeing DIMMs reaching the 1800MHz range, most boards actually need to be overclocked to reach those speeds. Without one of the more overclocking friendly boards, you probably won't be able to hit full speed. X-bit Labs had the chance to try two new modules, and contrast them to the three they have previously seen in the same speed range with a little help from an X38 board.

Legit Reviews puts Corsair's TWINX Dominator Dual Channel 1800MHz DDR3 against it's self in a battle of timings. It is rated to run with 7-7-7-20 at 1800MHz, but LR discovered that at 1333MHz, it can run at 4-4-4-12 timings. Of course the obvious next step was to run it at those to speeds, as well as 7-7-7-20 at 1300MHz, to see what differences appear.

Over at Benchmark Reviews you can see SuperTalent's new W1800UX2GP 2GB RAM kit, which runs 1800MHz @ 7-7-7-21 and needs only 2.0 volts to do it. As you might expect, there are quite a few options with RAM that runs this fast, by backing off on the clock speed you can get tighter timings, or you can try to push it faster on the FSB, though not too much further.

X-bit Labs has gathered RAM at several different speeds and latencies to see how well DDR3 is doing at taking over DDR2s spot in the hearts of enthusiasts. You shouldn't expect to see a clear cut victor though, even though DDR3 has jumped from 1333MHz to 1800MHz in a very short time, many tests depend on low latency, and that doesn't begin to touch on the current pricing of 1800MHz modules.

Crucial's Ballistix PC3-12800 CL8 can hit 1780MHz, with 8-8-8-20 timings at a voltage of 1.8V, for under $700. While that won't break any speed records, and it resists any attempts to tighten the timing , PC Stats still likes this memory for anyone looking for reliable RAM with a rock solid warranty.
