G-skill & Team Xtreem

G-Skill

Now that memory is getting clocked higher and higher it also gets hotter and hotter. And that's where the G-Skill active memory cooling could come in handy.

This year G-Skill didn't present us any record breaking speeds, but they more focussed on cooling. Here you can see the new heat spreader design.

The focus was on cooling, but also capacity. This is demonstrated by the 4 Gb DDR2 kit, working at 1 GHz.

Or what about an 8 Gb (2*4 Gb) kit ?

Next to the regular memory we see also more and more SSD showing up and G-skill wants also a bit of that pie.

Team Xtreem

The eye catcher Team Xtreem is presenting us is a 2 Gb set of DDR memory, operating at the amazing frequency of 2133 Mhz. This should be the highest frequency for computers available now.
The downside of this frequency is that the memory timings are quite a bit worse (10-10-10-30). Also the voltage is quit high. We're talking here about 2.1 to 2.2 volts. Don't forget that official JDEC standards state that DDR3 should work at 1.5 volt.

Not a new record, but DDR2 at 1200 Mhz is also a nice achievement.

More DDR2 "Dark" series...

Team Xtreem has also introduced the Elite series. Offering both So-dimm as regular memory. The target audience for these memory modules are people that want decent memory with decent warranty service.

What's up with all the companies making their own passive cooler instead of just putting an S1 on the G92 cards?

in-house dev+production most likely cheaper than licensing their tech

I doubt it, the pricing of the S1 cooled GT of ECS @ Newegg BEFORE Newegg jacked up the price (was below 200 when it started).
