Aeneon, a brand from memory maker Qimonda, debuts new 1066MHz DDR2 XTUNE memory modules designed for overclockers.

With the XTUNE series Aeneon is the worldwide first memory vendor, providing high-performance memory modules without the need of higher supply voltages. The 1066MHz Dual Inline Memory Modules (DIMMs) operate at the standard DDR2 voltage value of 1.8V. This results in higher reliability and longer lifetime.

The XTUNE memory modules support the Enhanced Performance Profile (EPP) standard, simplifying the usage of the overclocking feature. The standard provides an easy to use solution as the overclocking settings are preconfigured on the modules and can be read out by all motherboards supporting EPP. If the EPP feature is enabled the system parameters are automatically adjusted to the overclocking parameters supported by the memory module.

The XTUNE DDR2 memory modules are available with densities of 512MByte (AXT660UD00-19D) and 1GByte (AXT760UD00-19D). Both single modules are tested to run at 1066MHz at a latency timing of 5-5-5-15 at the standard DDR2 voltage value of 1.8 V. The modules can be organized as 64M or 128M x 64 bit respectively based on 8 (16) components of 64M x 8-bit DDR2 FBGA chips. XTUNE DDR2 memory modules are offered in dual channel kits with two identical modules (2x512MB or 2x1GB) tested together in dual channel mode at 1066MHz at a latency timing of 5-5-5-15.

The 240-pin DIMMs are equipped with a high-quality heat spreader to avoid critical operating temperatures. For non-overclocking usage the DIMMs support 800 MHz (5-5-5-15) operation in industry standard mode. The new overclocking DIMMs will be available through the authorized Aeneon sales representatives and distributors starting May 2007.
