Super Talent, a leading supplier of advanced memory modules, said on Monday that its latest development, Project X memory modules, currently available on the market, already feature support for extreme memory profiles (XMP), a capability that lets system platforms to automatically set maximum possible performance for memory sub-system.
“Project X was designed to support XMP from the very start, so every Project X kit we’ve ever shipped already supports XMP. We’re very happy to bring new performance enhancing features like XMP to market through our partnership with Intel. XMP replaces the pain of tweaking every individual memory parameter with the simplicity of selecting a single performance profile to optimize memory timings,” said Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James.
Super Talent’s Project X represents the family of most advanced memory modules from the maker. At this point the manufacturer promises that Project X memory combines “blistering fast clock speeds with aggressively tuned latencies”, which is indeed true, as Super Talent’s W1800UX2GP are the first DDR3 PC3-14400 memory modules in the industry that can operate at 1800MHz with CL7 7-7-21 timings at 2.0V voltage stock settings. In addition, SuperTalent offers W1600UX2GP modules that can function at 1600MHz with CL7 6-6-18 latency settings and 1.8V voltage.
Project X memory modules employ an extreme cooling solution that offers double the surface area and 106% more aluminum mass than standard heat spreaders. With Super Talent’s special thermal adhesive, this cooling solution provides superior heat dissipation that results in a cooler, faster memory device, the company claims.
Extreme memory profiles (XMP) are SPD (Serial Presence Detect) settings that are activated once memory modules are installed into a system with a mainboard that supports such settings. It is projected that XMP will be supported by mainboards based on Intel X38 chipset and will allow memory modules to function at higher clock-speeds with aggressive latency settings to provide additional performance.
