“Just in time for the gaming season, the Crucial Ballistix high-performance memory line is getting an upgrade of its own – introducing Crucial Ballistix PC2-8000 (DDR2-1000) high-performance memory – the fastest Ballistix offering yet,”
Though the latency on these modules is a bit high at CL5, the sheer speed of these is going to make up for it. No motherboards on the market yet officially support DDR2-1000, the majority of boards not even supporting DDR-800. This is still an absolute incredible way to go for an overclocker though, and offers plenty of headroom for upgrades in the future. Even at the low voltage of 2.2V, I can imagine these things are quite the cookers. I expect to see memory modules requiring heavy duty ramsinks or perhaps even active coolers in the near future.
