Default First look : Qimonda/Aeneon PC12800U-C9

With all the rumors (facts ?) that Qimonda is on the verge of banckrupcy, one could almost forget that they still make memory

Actually, Qimonda was one of the first to introduce their Core i7 specific memory modules, and one of the first to introduce them at speeds up to 1600Mhz. Have a look at the package that came in:


The memory modules themselves look rather basic, but they're's nothing wrong with that. The heatspreader design looks and feels very pleasing. We're talking a cas 9 set here, which theoretically makes them a little slower than the Geil modules from our previous post. Qimonda has a different manufacturing process though, so testing will have to make out if they can be competitive - or not.

Overclocking wise, it's clear that these cas 9 modules are not scaling as well as the Geil's, have a look :

Cas 7 : 7-7-7-24-1T @ 680Mhz

Cas 8 : 8-8-8-24-1T @ 760Mhz

Cas 9 : 9-9-9-27-1T @ 840Mhz

Still decent gains (remember : we're testing command rate 1 here !) over stock speeds, so all-in-all not a bad performer at all.
