Next-generation DDR3 memory is just about two quarters away, but suppliers of high-speed memory modules for enthusiasts have already come close to the initial DDR3 speed-bins with their DDR2 offerings. Patriot Memory, a division of PDP Systems Inc., said Wednesday it would demo the world’s first 1302MHz memory modules at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
“Patriot is committed to pushing the envelope when it comes to offering the fastest and highest quality memory solutions to the market. The introduction of our PC2-10100 series will hopefully show that we are dedicated to becoming the memory company of choice for the gaming and enthusiast community,” said Paul Jones, Patriot chief executive.
Earlier it was considered that 1.20GHz is the maximum speed-bin for DDR2 memory modules and chips, meanwhile, DDR3 memory is expected to debut in Q3 2007 with speed-bins up to 1.33GHz, which means that Patriot’s new PC2-10100 memory modules are not only beyond “virtual maximum” of DDR2, but are pretty close to the PC3-10600 standard.
