Memory maker Apacer has released a new 4GB memory kit that features two 2GB DDR2-800 memory modules with CL5 timings.
The Apacer 4GB DDR2-800 memory module conforms to the JEDEC standard, and uses 1GB (128Mb´8) pin architecture, with cutting-edge 70nm process technology and FBGA chip packaging. It provides high frequency and low power consumption by comparison with memory modules produced using older production process technology. Maximum bandwidth is 12.8GB per second (in dual-channel mode); the working voltage is just 1.8V.
Apacer's 4GB (2GB´2) DDR2-800MHz desktop PC memory module pack is ideally suited for use with memory-intensive game software where memory capacity can have a major impact on how smoothly the game plays. Most game software today requires a lot of memory. If memory capacity is insufficient, the hard drive provides "virtual memory" for the game; however, hard drive read speed is far lower than memory read speed, so as soon as the PC switches over to using the hard drive to provide virtual memory, the gamer notices a pronounced slowdown in the game. Increasing memory capacity is thus the key to improving game performance.
