Three Way DDR-550 Memory Rumble - GeIL, OCZ and ShikaRAM

While companies around the world prepare to introduce DDR-II memory modules to the market place in their various channels, DDR kicks on. We've compared DDR-550 (PC4400) memory modules from GeIL, OCZ and ShikaRAM at their default speeds and overclocked, as far as we could take them, on our ASUS Pentium 4 platform.

Introduction

 

While DDR-II is not too far off, the technology as a whole is going to be out of reach for a lot of people. It will not only involve a new motherboard but also a new processor which is going to make it quite an expensive upgrade. And if you really want to do it right, you should also be looking at a PCI-Express graphics card to go along with the whole package - simply just more dollars to something that is already going to be quite an expensive upgrade for the average consumer.

 

Today we are looking at some of the current generation DDR memory from a couple of our regular memory manufacturer friends - GeIL and OCZ - we also see a company come into the spotlight called as ShikaRAM who have only just began concentrating on the end-user.

 

We are looking at PC4400 memory (or DDR-550) today. It is 275MHz memory - it's for people with extremely high clocking Intel Pentium 4 processors. While 275MHz is a great achievement for DDR, we will also endeavor to find out how much further they can go.

 

PC4400 memory is not cheap, so sit back and find out what you should be spending your hard earned dollars on for your overclocking adventures.
