Corsair & OCZ ram the competition aside

Subject: Memory | August 9, 2006 - 01:44 PM |

Anandtech pits Corsair's DDR2 CM2X1024 6400C3 (3-4-3-9 @ 800) against OCZ's Ti Alpha PC2-8000 VX2 (4-4-4-15 @ 1000).  Both have headroom to overclock, and run at different stock voltages.  Find out what can be done with these DIMMs on an Intel Core 2 Duo X6800 system.

"Corsair has a long and illustrious history as an innovator in the memory market. For many years the

only recognizable brand of enthusiast memory was Corsair. OCZ has firmly established itself in recent

years as one of the most creative makers of enthusiast memory with innovations like Extended Latency

memory and high-voltage VX DIMMs for extreme overclockers. It was no surprise then, given the history

of these two companies, to be contacted for a look at their newest and fastest DDR2 memory.

Both memory companies consider the modules tested here the best DDR2 they currently offer on the

market. It is surprising then to see Corsair rate their DDR2 at DDR2-800 with specified 3-4-3 timings.

OCZ rates the new Titanium Alpha at DDR2-1000 at 4-4-4 timings. As seen in the past, both OCZ and

Corsair are often quite conservative in their ratings of their best memories. We were curious to see

what these "best-of-the-best" could really do in our new Core 2 Extreme memory test bed."
