Mushkin Announce First DDR-2 Redline

"Mushkin Announce First DDR-2 Redline"

Search News

Mushkin have recently announced the first DDR-2 entry to the "Redline" class of memory.

The new addition, branded "XP2-8000" will be available in 512mb and 1GB sticks, and are rated to run 4-5-4-11 at 2.2v.

The introduction of these sticks is bound to excite enthusiasts worldwide, as it is well known that only the best modules make it into the Redline class.

Lee Groniger, Director of Sales of Marketing, says that "This XP2-8000 definately holds up the reputation put forth by previous DDR-1 Redline Modules".

Mushkin can also expect increased sales if these sticks prove to be a success, as the introduction of AMD's new AM2 socket, means that both top end systems from AMD and Intel will be using the often criticised DDR-2 memory.

If previous experience is anything to go by, then you can be sure that Mushkin are introducing another top-end product to the overclocking world.

These sticks are expected to be hitting retailers int he next couple of weeks.

There are many ATX cases that utilise some of the features of the upside-down motherboard - but these cases are not BTX.

Yeah, but IMO BTX is dumb. They shld keep ATX, FTW!!!!

Gotcha my mistake, I do not like that Dell's layout one bit. Makes phase many times harder and tube routing a pain.
I'll stick to ATX.

Agreed. Intel Never heard the phrase 'If it an't broke don't fix it'?

Can't say that now, Conroe is a good thing, would you rather have them staying with netburst?

the dell BTX layout is iNtels BTX layout by the book, Gateway has it the same way to

I suppose I just dont like the extra internal case junk that comes along with the BTX form factor. The whole duct-work that goes to the HSF just seems a bit to gobby.

Yeah maybe but its is very quiet. A dual core P4 being cooled only by a case fan so you don't even notice the PC is on :eek:

BTX has it's merits for sure, but I think it was a definite push from Intel towards alleviating heat stress on components from their power hungry, heat inducing CPU's. BTX is an attempt to correct those flaws, re-enforcing standardisation for component design and placement. By standardising the motherboard topology you also gain a bit more control of extraneous costs in terms of accounting for design variations. Everything becomes standardised and, technically at least, that means everything is less expensive to build (more than likely not for PC enthusiasts such as us though). Not to mention that with only one fan, your PC should be quieter as well. :yumyum:
Imho ATX has already undergone numerous transitions and evolutions becoming slightly more BTX each time (for example using heatpipe tech instead of traditional fans on chipset controllers etc). I think more peeps will adopt BTX once the lines between the two become considerably more blurred.

So Conroe wouldn't work atall in ATX motherboards?

AFAIK conroe was another new architecture, so an advancement in chip technology. Not just re-jummbling a motherboards layout.

Admittedly it is clever, and not actualy a bad idea atall. I just think there isn't much point given that ATX is so flexible.

@ kemp: Yeah the single case fan idea is good. But the HS in the BTX dell that i worked on was big enough to live under.
