Less than a year after hopping into the memory market, Chaintech has decided to tackle the enthusiast memory segment. As DigiTimes reports, the company has cooked up Apogee GT memory modules with speeds of either 800MHz with 4-4-4-12 latency timings or 1066MHz with 5-5-5-15 timings. The modules have capacities of 512MB and 1GB and will come out as 1GB and 2GB dual-channel kits. Chaintech is also prepping 2GB modules and 4GB dual-channel kits for the second or third quarter of this year, DigiTimes says.
All Apogee GT modules come with a vertical-style heatsink that looks very much like the one Corsair introduced on its DHX XMS2 Dominator modules last summer. DigiTimes suggests that the Apogee GT modules may fare well against the competition because "Chaintech and its sister companies are involved in the entire RAM manufacturing process, from the original wafer, to burn-in and testing, to module assembly and packaging." This fact could allow Chaintech to cherry-pick top samples from each batch without having to pay premium prices.
