Breathing life back into DDR2

Subject: Memory | January 11, 2008 - 02:31 PM |

PC2 9384 translates into DDR2-1173, or an actual speed of 586MHz.  If your board can handle that FSB, the fairly low timings of 5-5-5-15 will help to speed up your system, and as the warranty will still cover you at 2.2V, you should be able to get some overclocking out of these DIMMs.  TweakTown had difficulties finding a board that could keep up with PNY's DDR2 XLR8 PC2-9384 2GB Memory Kit, so keep that in mind if you are looking at investing in them.

If you are more interested in DDR3, then check out Ryan's review of Corsair's Dominator DDR3 1800MHz Intel XMP, for some powerful DIMMs that give you some nice options when you are setting up the system.

"Intel still supports DDR2 quite readily, and even X38 and upcoming X48 motherboards will both have DDR3 and DDR2 memory

controllers as options on select boards, so you still have the flexibility there depending on what board you get.

Today we are testing out another somewhat unknown company to us; while we have heard of PNY before, we haven’t seen them

in the extreme memory range which they are pushing for today with the new PC2-9384 DDR2 memory kit we have been sent."
