There is speak that DDRii memory is nearing the end of its life, and while this could be fact to a sure extent, I imagine it to be more of the against. While DDRiii is on the horizon and will assume memory frequencies well beyond 1GHz, from the time this storage is first freed to the time it is adopted, that could even be well over a year from yet. After all, DDR2 just perfectly substituted the actual DDR memory last year, despite being freed way back in 2004. Just that both AMD and Intel have converted entire their platforms, sales of DDRii memory are much powerful.
The official blueprint for a DDR2-800 anamnesis bore is 1.8 volts of power, and you are accomplishing able-bodied if you can acquisition any DDR2 modules that assignment altogether in all systems application those settings. The actuality is best DDR2-800 modules are aloof overclocked DDR2-667 modules. Therefore, in best instances users are bigger off purchasing PC2-5300/5400 (DDR2-667) memory, rather than the added big-ticket PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) memory, which in aspect is the aforementioned thing. The alone advantage in purchasing DDR2-800 anamnesis in that case would be that it will accomplish at this abundance application the defined timings and voltage declared by the manufacturer.
Currently there is no curtailment of anamnesis modules that affirmation to assignment at 800MHz and beyond. For example, OCZ Technology offers a absolute of 9 anamnesis kits that accomplish at 800MHz with 13 added that beat this frequency. However, not one of these 800MHz kits uses aloof 1.8v, rather they all crave at atomic 2.0v, with some acute 2.2v or more. This is not such an affair if these modules can POST (Power On Self Test) at 1.8v, as the user can again access the BIOS and accomplish the all-important adjustments to advance stability.
OCZ has gone a little crazy with DDR2 memory, creating 9 different series. Perhaps one of the best arresting are the ablaze red ATI CrossFire Certified anamnesis modules. These ATI CrossFire Certified anamnesis modules were aboriginal appear aftermost September 2006 and back again we accept not heard or apparent abundant from these. Other than the business circuit put in the columnist release, there has been little advice to go on. What we apperceive is that these modules are advised and certified for CrossFire platforms by ATI, and that is about the aggregate of it.
