Kingmax is a Taiwan-based company that was founded in 1989 by Mr. Joe Liu. Their main focus is on creating DRAM memory products, however, they have more recently moved into networking products as well. Over the last few years, Kingmax have built up quite a name for themselves. This is because they continue to provide high quality memory modules at affordable prices. Kingmax had a reasonably large stand at this year's ITExpo and had a few interesting products on display.
Kingmax were very generous in allowing us to put together a PC that would be placed in their stand to demonstrate Kingmax's DDR333 memory and wireless networking products. Throughout the duration of the show, Cameron "Sov" Johnson manned the Kingmax stand, making sure all of the PCs were up and running as well as helping visitors with any questions they had. The specs of the PC we put together are:
* Intel Pentium 4 2.2GHz
* Epox 4SDA+ Mobo
* 512MB DDR-333 Kingmax Memory
* 64MB Leadtek GF3 Ti500
* 30GB HDD
* SB Audigy
* 16x DVD ROM
* 40x 20x 10 Acer CD-RW
As you can see, it is a very decent setup and certainly worthy of the task at hand.
Kingmax also had one of their soon to be released DDR400 memory modules on display, as well as their DDR333 modules that have been available in stores for some time now. Considering that there is currently no JEDEC standard for even DDR333 modules, DDR400 is a big step forward and it could be quite a while before we see chipsets that officially support DDR400 memory, as DDR333 motherboards have only recently hit retail channels.
Also on display was Kingmax's range of TinyBGA memory modules. TinyBGA is a unique DRAM packaging size used in conjunction with advanced DRAM module technology that allows for greater memory capacity, higher thermal dissipation and most importantly, a lower price. Kingmax were displaying many different types of their TinyBGA modules, ranging from SO-DIMMs, to Micro-DIMMs, to Long-DIMMs.
Kingmax also had a wireless network setup between a laptop and desktop PC that they used as a second PC to demonstrate their wireless networking products. This PC was networked with the TweakTown PC, and thus enabled us to get some multiplayer gaming going to amuse visitors.
