Memory manufacturers heading to +1000MHz DDR2

AnandTech writes that memory manufacturers at Computex were showing more and more high-speed DDR2 parts now that AMD announced it will support DDR2 memory early next year.

Corsair for instance was showcasing PC2-8000 DDR2 (1000MHz DDR2) and OCZ also had its DDR2-1000 memory at display for the press.

GeIL on the other hand was presenting its 1066MHz DDR2 memory, with an error-free demo cycling Memtest-86.

However, AnandTech wasn't too optimistic since they have revealed some time ago that not many of the current DDR2 memory modules can reach 1066MHz. Go here for some pictures.
