     DDR2-1000 : Super Talent too

    After OCZ and Corsair, Super Talent released DDR2 memory certified at 500 MHz. It is called DDR2-1000 or PC2-8000 depending if it is the chip or memory module that is named. Latencies announced for this 2x1GB set, which name is T1000UX2G5, are of 5-5-5-15.

    Super Talent isn't the first one to release DDR2 modules at this frequency. Corsair did it last May with latencies of 5-4-4-9 at 2.2V. In 2005, Crucial released too last August the Ballistix PC2-8000 in 512 MB and 1 GB versions certified with timings of 5-5-5-15 at 2.2V. However, the number of chips that support this configuration is very low and Corsair had to stop this series. The Crucial Ballistix PC2-8000 are no longer in stocks too.

    The DDR2-1000 race started end of February when OCZ announced the PC2-8000 Gold XTC in 512 MB and 1 GB modules certified with timings of 5-6-6-15 at 2.1V. Corsair had to answer to this release and launched the 6th of March 512MB PC2-8500 (or 533 MHz) modules with timings of 5-5-5-15 at 2.2V. They are available in single (CM2X512-8000UL) or twin sets (TWIN2X1024-8500). OCZ's answer was the announcement the same day of the PC2-8000 Platinum Enhanced Latency XTC and Platinum XTC Extreme Edition in 512 MB and 1 GB versions. They respectively work with timings of 5-5-5-15 and 4-5-4-15 at 2.1V.

    The war is apparently going on for high frequency DDR2 modules despite minimum performance gains with current DDR2 platforms (Pentium 4/D). Prices are also, according to our sources, almost 50% higher than DDR2-800 modules. Athlon 64 Socket AM2 or Intel's future platforms that will natively support DDR2-800 and will more easily and efficiently utilize DDR2-1000 in Overclocking will probably make them more interesting. However, according to the latencies and prices nothing is less sure.
