GeIL, a well-known maker of memory modules intended for overclockers and computer enthusiasts, said it had begun production of its DDR2 SDRAM products. For some reason the company now makes its new lineup in limited quantities.

The first shipments of DDR2 memory modules from GeIL are expected to commence starting from July, 10, 2004. The company will offer 512MB and 1GB memory modules both separately as well as in so-called dual-channel kits containing two memory modules certified to work with each other.

GeIL said its DDR2 modules certified to work at 533MHz clock-speed with CL4 4-4-12 latency settings. The PC2-4200 memory products from GeIL are made using 6-layer print circuit boards with special noise shield to those used by other high-speed memory module makers. The DDR2-series from GeIL will be supplied with aluminum heat-spreaders.

“As DDR2 memory becomes widely adopted later this year, it will be used to enhance major performance on desktops, notebooks, and servers as well as telecommunication and networking devices. All of GeIL’s DDR2 modules have been tested extensively in multiple DDR2 mainboards to ensure compatibility and performance at its rated speed,” GeIL said.

The newly introduced DDR2 memory products utilize FBGA memory chips for better stability, thermal efficiency, enhanced scalability and better overclockability. Additionally, DDR2 components themselves have some micro-architectural changes from the original DDR specs, such as, Off-Chip Driver calibration (OCD), On-Die Termination (ODT) as well as larger 4-bit prefetch, additive latency, and enhanced registers.
