High-End DDR2 Comparison
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
With many affordable PC2-6400 modules hitting speeds of 1000Mhz and above, justifying the purchase of a high-end DDR2 memory kit has become much harder. However, for those who wish to attain the highest levels of performance, the question is no longer whether to buy, but which kit to buy. TweakTown has put together an interesting comparison between high-end DDR2 memory kits from Kingston, Geil, and lesser-known brands such as ADATA and Winchip.
Lets see what they had to say:
Kingstons PC2-9600 memory has managed to impress us immensely with its speed as well as overclocking abilities. While 600MHz may seem good to most, our final speed of 622MHz gives us just a bit more speed for your dollar. To this end we have given the Kingston PC2-9600 our Must Have Editors Choice Award.
I found this article a little weak, however I cant argue with their pick for Editors Choice. The Kingston PC2-9600 may not be an excellent overclocker, but most people arent going to complain with 622Mhz. Also, its not too expensive for such a highly-clocked memory kit, particularly one that has Micron D9GKX ICs.
