DDR2 memory market is a confusing area for many
people right now. The fastest memory speed AMD
and Intel officially support is DDR2-800, for
some time the major manufacturers have been striving
to release memory which far exceeds this speed.
In the past we have reviewed modules from Geil
and Corsair with DDR2-1066 ratings which should
be more than enough to sate the appetite of power
hungry users, however the products we are testing
today are capable of even faster speeds.
up is OCZ’s PC2-8800 Gold which despite
their expensive design are a reasonably priced
product for the high end user (£290). Our
second review product comes from Corsair who are
pushing things even further with new modules rated
at PC2-8888 and a Cas setting of 4, however it
would be safe to say, at £470 for a 2 gig
kit they won’t be selling en masse.
