Mushkin PC150 HSDRAM

 

 

Mushkin Enhanced Memory Systems, based in Denver, Colorado has been operating its memory and components e-commerce website since 1994. It was one of the first 'boutique' computer e-stores on the web. The recent Mushkin merger with Ramtron International provides customers with an end-to-end solution for specialized computer memory. Mushkin can now access the chip design and manufacturing capabilities of Enhanced Memory Systems, also a subsidiary of Ramtron, in addition to its own expertise in module manufacture, e-commerce software for retail/B2B, and unparalleled customer service.

 

Fortunately, a very good friend of mine living close to myself recently purchased some Mushkin HSDRAM and was kind enough to let me borrow it for a few days to do some tests on for this roundup. The Mushkin HSDRAM like most other PC150 SDRAM modules are PC133 modules tested to do 150MHz.

 

Mushkin Memory Features

 

PC150-232 Specification:

 

Maximum Rated Operating Frequency = 150MHz

 

CAS Latency = 2

 

RAS to CAS Delay = 3

 

Precharge Delay = 2

 

Device Cycle Time = 6.6ns

 

6 Layer PCB

 

On-Board Serial Presence Detect (SPD)

 

JEDEC PC-133 SDRAM DIMM Compatible

 

Like the OCZ Enhanced memory the Mushkin HSDRAM uses a 6 layer PCB to allow better overclocking, however they have elected to put chips on both sides of the PCB, this does sometimes (not in all cases) reduced overclockability to some extent.
