Wintec, a leading manufacturer of memory, recently came out with the AmpX series. Built with low latencies, it can potentially run faster than other memory modules costing several times as much. Mike Mackenzie puts the memory through its paces to see whether it lives up to its potential.
When DDR2 was first released, most memory could only run with extremely relaxed latency. Relaxed timing of memory modules has never been a real issue for Intel processors, so Intel was quick to prove the added bandwidth of DDR2 RAM to their chipsets. Original DDR2 modules were capable of running in sync with the processor with latencies of 55512. Later modules were capable of running at 266 Mhz with lowered latencies of 44412, and most recently, with the introduction of the 1066 Mhz chipsets, manufacturers started to produce memory modules that are capable of running at 337 Mhz with the same latency of 44412, increasing bandwidth up to 5400 mbps.
Wintec Industries is one of the leading manufacturers of memory modules. Recently, they started to produce their own line of memory. The AmpX series has been developed with the latest technologies and uses memory modules known for running low latencies similar to the timing of DDR RAM. It can potentially run faster than most memory modules, at a fraction of the cost.
Today we have a Wintec Amp X PC25400 Dual Channel Kit rated to run at DDR675 at 44410 with the standard 1.8v. How will these modules perform beyond that? Could they possibly run these speeds with low latency? Lets find out.
