Memory companies continue to push the speeds of their modules higher and higher following the requests of computer hardware enthusiasts. GeIL recently announced the fastest DDR SDRAM devices ever running at 533MHz, speed meant to be achieved by DDR-II SDRAM memory only in 9 months time.

GeIL, a well-known company among overclockers and hardware enthusiasts positions its latest addictions to the Dual Channel Ultra Platinum Series of memory-module kits for use with dual-channel systems by power users community.

Both new versions of the GeIL Ultra Platinum Series products use 3.5ns memory chips, 6-layers PCBs and are equipped with copper heat-spreaders and may work at 2.6V ~ 2.95V voltage. The difference between the so-called PC4200 and PC4000 modules is just speed and timings: DDR500 modules use CAS2.5 7-4-4 timings, whereas DDR533 devices boast with CAS3 8-4-4 timings.

Memory kits are available in 512 and 1GB versions and come in retail package with neon green clear acrylic case and instructions. Do not expect them to be inexpensive, I should add.

I have to pause here to ask if RAM modules will in no time be using cooling fan. Check this out! CPUs by default are using fans and heavy duty fans are now being introduced as well as excellent cooling sinks are introduced. Later as the competition progresses to a very undisputable level, liqiudfied refridgiration will be introduced especially when a clock speed of 4GHz is attained by AMD Athlons. Graphic Cards are now using fans for cooling. I think the next level will be the RAM. How this would be is yet to be concieved by my mind considering that a RAM is a stick like module? Is going to be very wicked kind of imagination.

Ram Cooling has been around since the introduction of PC800 RDram as far as I recall. ThermalTake is a the market's current leading RAMsync manufacturer with their DDR-taylored heatsyncs going at just under $7.00 a pop. Check it out here
