Mushkin announces low-latency PC2-8000 memory

— 4:29 PM on June 2, 2006

Mushkin has introduced new XP2-8000 modules and matched memory kits in its REDLINE range of high-end memory. The modules are rated for operation at a cool 1,000 MHz—200 MHz above the stock memory speed for AMD's new Socket AM2 platform—and feature low 4-5-4-11 latency timings.

Denver, CO, June 1, 2006- Mushkin Enhanced, a leading manufacturer in high-performance computer components, is proud to announce the addition of the XP2-8000 DDR-2 memory module into the legendary REDLINE class. REDLINE, synonymous with cutting-edge performance, is recognized globally as the best performing memory available today. "The addition of the XP2-8000 to Mushkin's REDLINE class should excite enthusiasts worldwide, as only the best performing modules make it into this class," said Lee Groninger, Director of Mushkin Sales and Marketing, "This XP2-8000 definitely upholds the reputation put forth by previous DDR-1 REDLINE modules." The XP2-8000 REDLINE will be available in both 512MB and 1GB capacities and is rated 4-5-4-11 at 2.2V.
The new REDLINE modules don't appear to support Enhanced Performance Profiles, but their 4-5-4-11 timings are nonetheless quite competitive. For example, Corsair's XMS2-8000UL kits (PDF) are rated for operation with 5-4-4-9 timings, while OCZ's PC2-8000 Platinum XTC Extreme Edition pairs are rated for 4-5-4-15. The OCZ kits have a voltage rating 0.1 V below the Mushkin and Corsair offerings, though.
