Corsair Twin2X1024-5400C4PRO memory Review
10 September 2005
Conclusion: We were a little disappointed in the overall performance of DDR2. We would have thought the speed would have been more than enough to over come the low latencies and show a better performance than DDR1. However this did not appear to be that case, one reason is that you have to rely on the mainboard for your memory speeds. So if you have a mainboard that cannot handle the extra bandwidth, or has a high latency of it?s own, you end up loosing performance.
Conclusion: The Corsair TWIN2X1024-5400C4PRO is a fantastic piece of hardware. It has plenty of headroom for overclocking and also large aluminium heatspreaders that helps to keep the memory cool. It ran perfectly stable at the rated speed of 675MHz with timings at 4-4-4-12. Moreover, the LEDs that run on the modules is definitely a head turner as it is pretty bright and performs as memory usage indicator. Priced at USD335 / RM1273, it is currently the best bang for your buck!
Pros: Extreme speed, Plenty of overclocking headroom, Cool LED indicators, Best bang for buck
Summary: While there have been many reviews on DDR2, I fear early reviews for the new standard were unconsciously prejudicial. While PCIe/DDR2 technology continues to experience growing pains, Corsair has done an excellent job with what is arguably the fastest memory on the market.
