DDR2 to the Max - High-end kits Tested

Winchip 2GB DDR2 Memory kit



Winchip are a new company on the memory scene. Winchip was once a name in the CPU market, IDT produced the Winchip CPU during the Socket 7 days when Pentium was king. Now Winchip is a memory company producing memory modules. Our first product from them is a 2GB offering. We were given the modules in clear plastic casing, no other paraphernalia was included due to the early nature of these modules.



Winchip's first set we have been given was a 1200MHz DDR2 memory module kit, these with timings of 5-5-5-15 at a max voltage of 2.35v. The modules come with a rather sexy heatspreader which sits above the memory in order to move the heat away from the modules. This principle works by convection cooling, moving the heat to the top of the spreader where cool air from the internal case fans can blow over the modules much more effectively than the standard alloy heatspreaders like those seen on both Kingston and Geil's modules today.
