MSC – German manufacturer of high-end electronics and memory modules – today launches their DDR3-lineup under the CellShock brand which will be available immediately. The new product line includes two 2GB memory kits with 1600MHz and 1800MHz nominal working frequencies that boast competitive features compared with the other existing solutions:

 

Based on the much sought after Micron DDR3 ICs and binned to aggressive 7-6-6-18 (1600) and 8-7-6-21 (1800) timings both products represent the lowest latency 1600 and 1800 Kits available on the market. This was possible due to Cellshocks advanced binning process and an ultra low noise PCB optimized for Micron DDR3 ICs.

It is important to note that overclocker CellShock modules boast relatively low nominal voltage set at about 1.7-1.9V. It gives us some hope for high overclocking potential above the claimed default specs.

DDR3-1600 and DDR3-1800 kits are already available in stores. Their recommended retail price is set at ?439 and ?499 respectively. CellShock modules come with 5-year warranty.
