We reviewed one of most high-end DDR2 memory modules available in the market today, Patriot PDC21G8500ELK, which is a 1 GB DDR2-1066/PC2-8500 memory kit, able to officially run up to 1,066 MHz at 5-5-5-16 timings. Check it out.
Here is a snippet:
"With the introduction of AM2 socket by AMD all new high-end PCs are finally using DDR2 memories. Right now the standard DDR2 speeds are 533 MHz, 667 MHz and 800 MHz, but Patriot was one of the first manufacturers to release 1,066 MHz models. These models are not only targeted to both Intel and AMD overclockers but also to regular users that have an Intel CPU running externally at 1,066 MHz and want to match the memory with the CPU external speed to achieve the maximum performance your system can deliver. Patriot has released a 1 GB kit (PDC21G8500ELK, 2x 512 MB modules) and a 2 GB kit (PDC22G8500ELK, 2x 1 GB modules), both with 5-5-5-16 timings. We will review the 1 GB kit and compare it to its main competitor from Corsair, TWIN2X1024-8500, which is also a DDR2-1066/PC2-8500 1 GB memory kit with 5-5-5-15 timings. "
