Leading memory modules maker GeIL unveiled recently its new series of DDR2 SDRAM modules with 533MHz clock-speed with reduced latencies aimed to bring exceptional performance for desktop computers powered by Intel’s latest i915- and i925X-series platform chipsets.

“The latency of DDR2 SDRAM is approaching that of DDR SDRAM, so the results of the systems with the new memory look quite pleasing now. In fact, DDR2-533 with 3-3-3 timings brings the performance i925/i915-based systems one level up. Computers with Intel’s new chipsets have a higher performance than i875/i865-based systems – you only have to use memory with aggressive timings,” said Ilya Gavrichenkov, CPU and platform analyst fro X-bit labs.

GeIL offers 533MHz DDR2 memory modules with CL3 3-3-8 latency settings in capacities of 256MB, 512MB and 1GB for single-channel packages as well as pairs of such modules as dual-channel bundles. Pricing for such memory is unknown.

To guarantee high speeds amid low latency settings GeIL had to increase memory voltage to 1.95V and use special low-noise 6-layer print circuit boards. GeIL equips its 533MHz SDRAM Ultra DDR2 DIMMs with aluminum heat-spreaders.

GeIL is, however, not the first company to introduce DDR2 SDRAM with reduced latencies. Companies like OCZ Technology and Corsair Memory have already introduced their DDR2 modules with latencies similar to GeIL’s.
