In a press release issued today, GeiL announced the arrival of some extremely nice parts: 1000MHz DDR2 modules in a value series. Rated as PC2-8000, these are being released as part of GeiL's standard Value line, and is has pretty average timings for such a high speed at 5-5-5-15. The name isn't all that unique, “DDR2 Value 1000”, and there is not yet a single motherboard that officially supports RAM of this speed, but being able to run at a solid 500MHz is something that any overclocker will love.
”The GeIL DDR2 PC2-8000 1000MHz Value Series has been throroughly tested on Asus, MSI, and Gigabyte i955 motherboards in our lab for compatibility and stability to ensure best quality.”
They have been verified to be compatible with Intel's 955 chipsets and thus will likely work on 945 and up, and operate at 2.3V for 500MHz frequency. They will be available only as 1GB and 2GB kits. This is some very fast stuff!
