Specifications

The following specifications have been taken directly from Kingston's website:

"KHX:DDR2 - It's Here - HyperX DDR2 memory, the next-generation evolution of DDR memory technology. Like all Kingston HyperX products, HyperX DDR2 modules were specifically engineered and designed to meet the rigorous requirements of PC enthusiasts. HyperX DDR2 offers faster speeds, lower latencies, higher data bandwidths and lower power consumption. HyperX is available in single and dual channel memory kits. "


Kingston HyperX PC2-8500

• Power supply : Vdd: 1.8V ± 0.1V, Vddq: 1.8V ± 0.1V
• Double-data-rate architecture; two data transfers per clock cycle
• Bidirectional data strobe(DQS)
• Differential clock inputs(CK and CK)
• DLL aligns DQ and DQS transition with CK transition
• Programmable Read latency 5 (clock)
• Burst Length: 4, 8 (Interleave/nibble sequential)
• Programmable Burst type (sequential & interleave)
• Timing Reference: 5-5-5-15 at +1.8V / 5-5-5-15 at +2.2V
• Edge aligned data output, center aligned data input
• Auto & Self refresh, 7.8us refresh interval (8K/64ms refresh)
• Serial presence detect with EEPROM
• High Performance Heat Spreader
• PCB : Height 1.180” (30.00mm), single sided component

To summarise (as the above will probably mean very little to most of us), the HyperX PC2-8500 runs at a stock speed of DDR-1066 with timings of 5-5-5-15 and requires 2.2v. Those of us with budget motherboards should check that they have the ability to provide the memory slots with 2.2v as during this review I found that the Abit board we used had a maximum of 2.3v selectable, which ended up being 2.25v effective.

"Today i take a look at the blisteringly fast PC2-8500 (DDR2-1066) kit from Kingston to see if all this memory bandwidth is really required!"

Hey my mouths watering now, like a kid at Christmas I'm going to be when my 2GB kit arrives, very nice review I'm going to review my kit when it arrives but you'll have to forgive me in advance as it won't be as good as yours I don't have a clue how to do those graphs.
