DDR SDRAM tests are a tradition with us - have 25 memory modules with a rating of DDR400 or higher, we looked at in recent months, it was cheap bargains that have turned out to be excellent models and expensive high-end stores that did not really get going. With today's test we take one last look at the DDR SDRAM standard and test five additional memory modules, we have not yet had the test, this time it's all luxury memory modules of different brands - among them this time are Corsair,TwinMOS, Adata and Corsair.
The alignment of the memory modules is different, the Corsair TwinX1024 3200XLPro example, is a memory that will shine above all with low latency, it can be operated at DDR400 settings with fast latencies and is therefore especially designed for the AMD range. The modules from Corsair, OCZ and TwinMOS other hand, are designed for high frequencies - they create a bus clock of 250 MHz or more, even without overclocking, and can be optimized by the manufacturer for such high frequencies, but they run on poorer latency.
We have already mentioned: It is likely that this is the last DDR SDRAM Roundup at, if not one or the other manufacturer takes a light-speed memory modules on the market. DDR2 is that is coming, the first motherboards with the new memory standard are already on the market and Intel is in the future almost exclusively with the new processors in the 775 set on this type of memory.
Since we have practically tested a complete market overview earlier, we also draw on the same test platform - our ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe has beaten already at high frequencies very well, the Pentium 4 ES enables high clock rates with respect to the FSB, without the processor to overclock, maximum of the modules were present at the OC-2.85V voltage tests.
In addition, we test the compatibility as always - this time with a ASUS A8V Deluxe vs Athlon 64 3800 + , but again due to the fact no performance tests because the board is unstable even at almost 220 Mhz was, the test system we do not want to explain once again - that's why we also refer the reader to an earlier review.
