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
GeIL said its DDR2 modules certified to work at 533MHz clock-speed with CL4
“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.
