Buffalo will soon be joining the ranks of the few memory manufacturers that can offer 1.2GHz DDR-2 parts. Planning for a release at the end of next month, the sticks will be marked with slightly-above-average 5-6-6-18 latency settings and rated for 1.2GHz, with promises of 1.25GHz being possible. The PC2-9600 parts will be sold under the name “Firestix”, and Buffalo isn't giving an MSRP, at least not yet. Likely you can expect them to be a cut above Corsair's and OCZ's highest-end DDR-2 sticks, at least until those companies start offering faster products. The modules will be offered either as a pair of 512MB or 1GB modules.
