XtremeResources today takes a look at a set of DDR2 memory modules by PDP systems memory division, Patriot. XR's very own Frank "Gooch" takes the Patriot PC2-5600+ XBLK Dual Channel Memory Kit through their paces installed on the Asus P5ND2-SLI Deluxe with Intel Pentium 4 530J aboard.
The move to the DDR2 memory subsystem seems to be picking up momentum lately as there are numerous memory manufactures offering higher speed grade modules compared to several months ago. Intel is the first to utilize DDR2 and AMD continues to stay with DDR and may move up to DDR2 in the future. Today, we will examine and test the PC2-5600 modules from Patriot on the nVidia C19 platform with Patriot's XBLK PC2-5600+ 1GB dual channel kit and see how it does.
