TwinMOS announced Twister, and no in this case Twister is not the family game, and also not that stormchasers movie from Warner Bros Twister is a new line of DDR Ram modules meant for overclockers.

Their new Twister line of memory consist out of DDR333/400/433/466 and DDR500 modules. Something eye catching about them is their heatspreader, which will probably keep them cooler (A badly applied memory heatspreader can be worse than no heatspreader for memory, it can actually trap the heat). The DDR466/500 modules have timings of CL2.5 2, 4, 8 at 2.5V. The DDR333/400 and DDR433 modules are able to work at CL2 2-4-8 according to TwinMOS.

  The company named the new product line - TwiSTER after the core concepts incorporated into the technology with "S" standing for "speed" and "TER" standing for "terrific" to approach over-clocking power users¡Bgaming enthusiasts and business customers with its high performance and speedy yet steady retrieval of data. The DDR WLCSP module under the TwiSTER line is produced with WLCSP technology, enabling steady data transmission and effective thermal reduction.
WLCSP: Wafer-level chip scale packaging, refers to the packaging of the entire wafer instead of individual chips diced from the wafer -- a technique producing packaged chips 20% larger than the original. WLCSP involves packaging the entire wafer before the dicing process, producing packaged chips the same size as the original.
