Patriot Memory on Thursday unveiled its new memory modules rated to run at 2250MHz that can be overclocked further to 2400MHz. Just like competing offerings, Patriot Viper II Sector 5 memory modules are intended for work in dual-channel mode, hence, extreme performance enthusiasts with triple-channel memory sub-system will not be able to enjoy unbelievable clock-speeds.

The hand-tested Patriot Viper II Sector 5 memory modules can operate at 2.25GHz clock-speed with CL9 9-9-27 latency settings. The manufacturer did not specify voltage settings needed to achieve such extreme speeds, but they are more than likely to be higher compared to default DDR3 voltages. Although 2.25GHz is respectable clock-speed, Corsair recently launched 2.33GHz/2.40GHz memory modules for enthusiasts, who demand absolutely the best. According to Patriot, the Viper II Sector 5 can also hit 2.40GHz frequency.

“Our goal is to provide the hardcore enthusiast with a performance module that is actually going to perform at the specified timing with stability. Consumers can feel confident that what we advertise for our speeds and timing is true to the specifications. Additionally, users can expect headroom to reach faster speeds. We have been able to hit speeds over 2400MHz with these modules in our lab,” said Les Henry, Patriot's vice president of engineering.

Patriot Viper II Sector 5 memory modules are designed for LGA1156 platforms powered by Intel P55 core-logic and will be available in 4GB (2x 2GB) dual-channel kits. Patriot did not specify recommended pricing for a set of extreme memory modules.
