Patriot Memory, a leading supplier of advanced memory modules and NAND flash-based devices, this week unveiled the world’s highest-performance memory modules to date, which can operate at 2.50GHz.
Patriot’s new Viper II-series “Sector 5” edition offers a number of clock-speed options for dual-channel DDR3 memory kits, including 2133MHz, 2250MHz, 2400MHz and 2500MHz. The PC3-20000 memory modules, which function at 2.50GHz, come with CL9 11-9-27 latency setting amid 1.65V ~ 1.7V voltages. The timings of the modules are slightly more aggressive compared to those on 2.50GHz products by G.Skill that were recently launched. In addition, Patriot does not issue any recommendations regarding what mainboard to use. Patriot’s new Viper II-series “Sector 5” edition will work with any Intel Core i7/i5 processors in LGA1156 form-factor and a high-quality mainboard.
"Patriot has been delivering some of the fastest overclocking memory in the world, and our latest solution takes the crown as 'World's Fastest Memory’. […] With Viper II-series sector 5 edition 2500MHz modules we are showcasing our expertise and deep understanding of the enthusiast market to push the boundaries and achieve new speeds and performance capabilities with DDR3 memory,” said Les Henry, Patriot's vice president of engineering.
Patriot’s new Viper II-series “Sector 5” edition modules will be offered as a 4GB kit (2 x 2GB modules). Pricing is unknown.
