Kingston HyperX PC3-11000 DDR3 Memory Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
While DDR3 is still too expensive to be considered mainstream technology, it is still interesting to see what the future holds. Virtual Hideout has just posted a review of the Kingston HyperX PC3-11000 DDR3 memory kit.
Heres what they had to say:
These modules seemed perfectly tuned for nothing more than the most serious users expecting only the best performance no matter the objective. Silent PC users will love the fact that these modules remain so much cooler than performance DDR2 modules which means there is no need to worry about ever increasing thermal issues. Kingston's DDR3 2x1GB Kit operates so much cooler than the previous generation and is very solid memory kit. One thing is for sure, the ASUS P5K3 Deluxe WiFi-AP Edition Motherboard and Kingston HYPER-X PC3-11000 Memory make one perfectly extreme combination!
They managed to reach 1480MHz 7-7-7, which is about average for this particular memory kit. It may not sound impressive compared to the 1600Mhz and above that certain hand picked memory kits are achieving, but its pretty decent. On a side note, this articles performance comparison between DDR2 and DDR3 was a bit weak, I would have definitely liked to see some more games benchmarked.
