Kingmax PC3200 TinyBGA revisited
Kingmax recently gave word that production of PC3700 and PC4000 TinyBGA memory is going into mass production over the next couple months. While we wait for them we have the original PC3200 which we looked at in our first round up. Since our last round up Kingmax gave word that they wanted us to push these sticks to the max and thanks to the latest Abit Canterwood motherboard and its 3.2 Volt of V Dimm to play with we now have the opportunity to push these stick further then ever before. Kingmax didn't seem to mind if we killed the sticks they sent us due to extreme pushing on the voltage side of things. To a degree, they encouraged us to push them.
Last time we were very impressed with what Kingmax were capable of and it scored very respectively with only some freakishly fast Crucial modules beating it. This time we have strapped the modules into our brand new ABIT Max 3 motherboard and pumped them full of voltage. The speeds may surprise some and give people a little faith in cheaper memory.
While we did have a look at these modules in the past, if you haven't had a chance to read the other or can't be bothered, we will give you a quick run down on what the Kingmax modules have to offer now.
Module Size: 2 X 256MB
Package: 184-pin LONG DIMM
Naming: DDR PC3200
Voltage: 2.5V (2.6V Recommended for Dual Channel Operation)
CAS Latency: 2.5
Kingmax offer a full retail packaging solution which is fantastic for computer shops who want to display the memory. The packaging is a nice little cardboard box with a little window in it which shows the sticker on the memory. The sticker on the memory states the speed and part number. People are able to see what they are getting without having to take it out of the box.
The particular modules used feature a different kind of memory which is normally seen on graphics cards. TinyBGA was best explained in our last guide and here is a direct snippet of what was said:
Tiny BGA is a technology that is really only seen on video cards, fortunately Kingmax have been able to implement it into there own line of memory for normal PC use. Tiny BGA helps by reducing modules size, lowering prices, increase signal integrity and help reduce temperatures
TinyBGA seemed to keep the competition on its toes last time but this time we are looking at a lot more memory including some of the fastest on the block. We will see if Kingmax's TinyBGA has what it takes to play in the big league.
