Kingston shows off PC2-6000 (750MHZ)

Above is an image of our kit that we will be reviewing shortly

Today Kingston showed off samples of their PC2-6000 memory, which the fastest DDR2 memory that we have seen to date. For those that don't know PC2-6000 is running at 750MHz DDR2! The modules that we have seen are 256mb modules and carry the part number KHX6000D2/256. Under closer inspection they were found to be running a 32mb x 8 single sided configuration on a JEDEC reference PCB.


:prayer: DDR2 750MHz!

Nice to see Kingston come out with some high speed memory. Seems like its been a while since they had any trully fast good memory out there. I used to like HyperX 2 years ago when there was nothing faster but now i dont think they even have anything that will do 2-2-2-x at DDR400. I guess i can see why as they are transistioning their productlines to DDR2.

DDR2 is a touchy subject as in today's meetings DDR3 is now appearing on roadmaps to replace DDR2 in late 2006. AMD is currently "skipping" DDR2 for the time being according to our contacts inside AMD. This puts the memory companies in an interesting position that doesn't happen too often. When DDR replaced SDRAM it was an easy move as it went from one to the other and all the companies moved over. Right now we have DDR1 being kept by AMD, DDR2 accepted by Intel, FB-DIMM's by the server crowds and last but not least is the flash memory market that blew up over the past year. So the transition to DDR2 is really not an easy switch since not everyone switched over.

As far as Kingston low latency memory they recently came out with PC-3200 Ultra Low Latency memory which runs at 2-2-2-5 timings. I know for a fact that the Ultra Low memory is using Samsung TCCD IC's on the reference PCB's.
