Today, we take a look a 2GB kit of PC2-6400 Low Latency memory, which is one of the most recent additions in Kingston's HyperX series. Kingston's KHX6400D2LLK2/2G kit consists of two low-latency DDR2 800MHz modules that operate at 4-4-4-12 memory timings. Read on to see how this kit performs our on Intel test platform.
In November of 2005 I reviewed Kingston's original PC2-6400 memory kit versus six other kits of memory and found it leaving me wanting more from the kit. The engineers at Kingston have obviously been working on improving their performance numbers and found a winning combination. The move from Infineon to Elpida IC's have allowed Kingston to reduce memory timings and improve the overclockability of these modules. The difference between CL5 and CL4 was obvious during our benchmarking and in DOOM 3 testing it was clear that having a CAS Latency of 4 was a major advantage. As we stated in the introduction C4 timings seem like the way to go without breaking the piggy bank trying to afford C3 memory.
