Keep your eye on DDR2

It won't be too much longer before AMD's Socket AM-2 is available, so it's time to keep an eye on DDR2 modules. DriverHeaven looks at the SuperTalent T800UX2GC4 PC2-6400 2GB kit, while it may be hard to find this kit for sale, the speed it provides makes the search worthwhile.
Don't forget to check out Jon's review of two of Corsairs' DDR2 kits, the 5400UL and the 8000UL.
'AMD will present the AM2 socket this summer, which supports DDR2 PC6400 RAM. Intel based
motherboards can already use such RAM and so we have most manufacturers entering a 'memory war',
with every RAM manufacturer trying to design and release high speed DDR2 modules while offering
good value as well. This 'memory war' seems to get interesting as Super Talent, a less known
company among the enthusiast circles, released the (for the time being) fastest PC-6400 2GB kit
currently available. The T800UX2GC4 kit consists of two 1GB modules, rated to run at 800MHz DDR
and 4/3/4/8 timings.'
