DDR3 RAM prices have dropped significantly during the past few months and their sales are steadily increasing as they start filtering into most high end systems. Despite that, DDR2 RAM modules are still very popular because of their low prices, which make them by far the most cost effective solution for mainstream systems.
G.Skill are a renowned memory manufacturer and they have released many high performance products during the past months. That said, they haven’t forgotten about the mainstream market and they just released several new DDR2 kits for the mainstream market as well. Today we will have a look at a Pi Black series PC2-6400 4GB kit, which can operate at 800MHz while needing only 1.8-1.9V.
