Introduction

DDR3 has been around for quite a while now and has slowly been gaining market share through use on the Nvidia 790 and Intel X48/38/P45 chipsets. It has to be said though that on those older chipsets the performance gains over high specification DDR2 were not always huge but that changed with the release of Intel’s Core-i7 platform.

As our i7 launch article demonstrated there were some massive increases to be had from the new triple channel memory architecture in both theoretical and real world tests. Since the release of i7 and X58 motherboards a large number of triple channel kits have hit the market and today we have three of the more impressive versions on our test bench. Each will be put through a selection of real world tests to find out which of them is worthy of your hard earned cash.
