    GeIL PC3500 Platinum Ultra Review


    (Page 1 of 5 )

    With new systems main bottleneck being memory bandwidth faster memory modules are needed. NVidia has recently released the nForce 2 chipset that can run memory at 400MHz DDR dual channel, when overclocked. Intel has also announced plans for new chipsets (Springdale and Canterwood) that will also use dual channel 400 MHz DDR SDRAM to power the new Pentium IV'ss with the 800MHz QDR system bus. And VIA and SiS have been trying to make a 400MHz motherboard for several months now. So clearly the need for PC3200 (400MHz DDR) SDRAM is there but why would you be concerned about PC3500?


    INTRODUCTION

    A few points to make before we get started

    1. PC3700 = 466MHz DDR = 233.00MHz Memory Bus
    2. PC3500 = 433MHz DDR = 216.66MHz Memory Bus
    3. PC3200 = 400MHz DDR = 200.00MHz Memory Bus
    4. PC2700 = 333MHz DDR = 166.66MHz Memory Bus
    5. PC2400 = 300MHz DDR = 150.00MHz Memory Bus
    6. PC2100 = 266MHz DDR = 133.33MHz Memory Bus
    7. PC1600 = 200MHz DDR = 100.00MHz Memory Bus
    8. and lastly when I refer to noise I am not talking about audible noise, I am talking about thermal noise

    With new systems main bottleneck being memory bandwidth faster memory modules are needed.

    PC3500 is essential for overclocked or the new 400 MHz dual channel boards. Obviously, if your an overclocker your going to want to push the memory bus beyond what it is rated to run, so PC3500 gives you the assurance that the memory is not limiting your overclocking ability (to a point). And for dual channel boards some of you may know that PC3200 memory modules are not working so well with both sticks of memory installed. The same problem is what happened to the Via and SiS 400MHz chipsets. They can run one stick without problems, however, when two sticks of memory are installed the noise in the system increases and if the memory has not been engineered to handle it, memory related errors will start popping up. The same thing happens when you overclock the memory bus…it generates more noise in the system. 


    ABOUT GeIL 


    "... GeIL the fastest-growing DRAM manufacturer in Asia: growing at twice the rate as the average DRAM company in the mist of a stalling economy.”  Copied directly from GeIL’s website.

    Unlike several other memory resellers, GeIL designs, manufacturers, tests, and packages their own DRAM.  GeIL began manufacturing memory modules in 1997.  They created the GL2000 and Golden GeIL chips in 1999.  The GL2000 chips are what is used on the PC3500 Platinum Ultra memory that is being reviewed, as well as, the older PC3500 and PC3200 memory that has been reviewed here at OCAddiction previously.  GeIL has won awards for their extensive memory testing programs.
