Super Talent announces 1866MHz DDR3 kits

By Justin Mann on July 30, 2007, 8:03 PM
In a press release issued today, Super Talent announced their latest entry into the high-end of the DDR3 market. Sitting at latencies of 8-8-8-24, Super Talent is offering an overclocked 1866MHz DDR3 kit. This new 2GB kit requires higher voltage than other DDR3 modules, likely due to the high clock speeds involved:

The W1866UX2G8 Kit, the world's first 1866MHz 2GB Kit (2x 1GB), supports ultra low 8-8-8-24 latencies. This Kit is built with the fastest available, carefully screened DRAM chips, and is hand tested as a matched pair on a dual channel Asus P5K3 Deluxe motherboard at its rated specs at 1.9 volts.
You can read the full press release in the comments section.

The as-of-yet-untapped market has seen many people rush to be first towards various milestones, so it's becoming harder to be impressed by the claims. While Super Talent's entry certainly does sound fast and may indeed be the fastest in the market currently, both its $625 price tag for the kit and another vendor's urge to claim the top spot will likely work against them.

Its impressive on paper but until some real-world benchmarks are done, I'm not convinced yet to spend $600 on DDR-3 modules.

I'll never be convinced to spend more than $300 on RAM
