Super Talent PC2-8000 DDR2 2GB Kit
Published: 10th January 2007 | Source: Super Talent | Price: |Introduction
With its headquarters in San Jose, California, Super Talent have been designing and manufacturing memory modules of all shapes and sizes for over 20 years. This may come as a shock to some of us, as in the UK at least Super Talent is a relatively unheard of name.
The Super Talent product line is divided into two major categories: Flash memory and DDR/2 memory. Today I'll be taking a look at Super Talent's high-end overclocker orientated DDR2 memory modules with speeds rated at DDR2-1000 and timings of 5-5-5-15. But first let's take at what Super Talent say about themselves:
|Engineered in Silicon Valley|
Counting 20 years of Memory Industry experience, Super Talent relies on technical research and its commitment to product development to deliver leading edge memory products to the market. Remaining at the fore-front of today's fast paced evolution in technology, Super Talent holds multiple patents on DRAM and Flash module design as well as on manufacturing processes. Actually, Super Talent is ranked among the top memory solutions manufacturers in terms of total patents applied under memory device categories.
Super Talent utilizes advanced technology and leading-edge components to produce high quality products with outstanding reliability. Our US based production facility stands as one of the largest and most advanced memory module factories in the USA.
Sold under the brand name SuperTalentTM, every memory product from the production line is subject to essential hardware and software testing standards for consistency and functionality. Our memory modules are rigorously qualified in Super Talent's compatibility labs, and are then tested and approved by many top motherboard manufacturers. Our intensive quality control and testing procedures are designed to ensure the highest possible product quality.
Service and Support
SuperTalent memory modules and USB drives are backed with excellent service and support, and a limited lifetime warranty.
The following information has been taken directly from Super Talent's website:
The T1000UX2G5 is a high performance 2GB kit of DDR2-1000 DIMMs that supports extreme clock speeds. It is ideal for Gamers, power users and overclockers, and is perfectly suited for the fastest new Intel and AMD platforms.
This kit has been tested and is guaranteed to operate at 1000MHz at 5-5-5-15 latencies at 2.2 volts. It has been tested as a matched pair of modules in a dual channel motherboard to ensure ultimate reliability, compatibility and performance.
These modules are clad in our custom blue cast aluminum high-efficiency (HE) heatspreaders for optimum thermal performance. Efficient cooling is essential to optimize speed and to preserve the life of the DIMMs.
- 2x 240-pin DDR2 DIMMs
- Non-ECC, Unbuffered
- 2GB kit (2x 128Mx64)
- DDR2-1000, 5-5-5-15 latencies
- Dual rank
- Chip Architecture: 2x 16 chips, 64Mx8
- Cast aluminum high-efficiency (HE) heatspreader
- SPD*: DDR2-800, 5-5-5-15 latencies
- Made in USA
- Super Talent Lifetime Warranty
These modules are tested and guaranteed to operate at these specs.
- DDR2-1000 / PC2-8000
- 5-5-5-15 Latencies (CAS, tRCD, tRP, tRAS)
- Test Voltage: 2.2V
- Tested on Asus P5WD2
- Tested as a matched pair in a dual channel motherboard
It's great to see that Super Talent modules are provided with a lifetime warranty, however they neglect to mention if this warranty covers the modules running at voltages higher than the rated 2.2v. As these modules are marketed at overclockers it would be good to see the warranty conditions clearly stated on the website.
The T1000UX2G5 modules are double sided and make use of D9GKX IC's manufactured by Micron. I've read mixed reports on how these IC's perform, but in general they should be better at achieving higher frequencies than the D9GMH used by many other manufacturers to achieve DDR2-1000.
