Ships World's First 2GB 1333MHz DDR3 Module
San Jose, California - July 3, 2007 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and flash storage solutions, today launched three significant new DDR3 kits.
The W1600UX2G7 is a 1600MHz PC3-12800 2GB Kit (2x 1GB) that is tested at very aggressive 7-7-7-18 latencies at 1.8 volts. The W1600UX2G9 is a 1600MHz PC3-12800 2GB Kit (2x 1GB) that is tested at 9-9-9-21 latencies at 1.8 volts. Super Talent tests both these kits as a matched pair on a dual channel Asus P5K3 Deluxe motherboard. These kits are built with the newest gigabit IC's, using eight pieces of 128M x 8 chips to produce a single-sided module. According to Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James, "These kits were designed to shock hardcore tweakers and performance enthusiasts into a state of awe. Some of these kits have broken the 2000MHz barrier in our Compatibility Labs. Our 1600 CL7 kit sets a new standard in extreme performance memory." Street price on the W1600UX2G7 will be approximately $648, and on the W1600UX2G9 will be approximately $598.
Super Talent's new W1333UB2G8 is the world's first 1333MHz PC3-10660 2GB DDR3 DIMM. This product is tested at 8-8-8-18 latencies at 1.8 volts in a P35 based motherboard. Built with 128M x 8 DDR3 chips, the W1333UB2G8 is a two-sided dual rank module that will retail for approximately $417.

As members of Super Talent's Extreme Performance line of memory, these products come clad in black cast aluminum heatsinks. These DDR3 products are designed, built and tested in Super Talent's San Jose, California headquarters. Every Super Talent module built is hand tested in a motherboard under load to ensure the highest level of reliability, and backed with a lifetime warranty.

It's good to see DDR3 Memory taking hold so we can move on with faster and more efficient memory. Prices are still over the top, but we can expect DDR3 prices to drop as it becomes more standard.
