Low-latency, high-speed modules maximize performance of Intel(R) 925 and 955 chipsets

releasing PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) and PC2-5300 (DDR2-667) low-latency
memory, designed specifically for computer gamers and power users
seeking maximum system performance and stability at a competitive

to provide leading-edge performance in motherboards based on both the
