Kingmax DDR-400 SDRAM Review - Specifications

Just recently there has been a great deal of talk about DDR-400 memory. Talk regarding supply for current and future chipsets including nVidia's nForce2 and the SiS 648. Kingmax were the first to bring DDR-333 memory to the market and again they have come out first with their DDR-400 SDRAM. There's been talk of poorly performing PC3200 memory from the Taiwanese company before now, Kingmax confirmed to us these were not modules with actual 5ns chips like the authentic DDR-400 memory from Kingmax which Cameron "Sov" Johnson bench tested today!

TweakTown Rating: 9.5%      Manufacturer: Kingmax

Capacity Options: 128MB/256MB/512MB

 

Performance range - 200MHz (DDR400, CL2.5)

 

Double-data-rate architecture; two data transfers per clock cycle

 

Bi-directional data strobe (DQS)

 

Differential clock inputs (CK and /CK)

 

DLL aligns DQ and DQS transition with CK transition

 

Auto & self refresh capability

 

Single 2.5 + 0.2V power supply (for DDR-400 2.65v Specifications)

 

Programmable Read latency 2, 2.5 (clock)

 

Programmable Burst length (2, 4, 8)

 

Programmable Burst type (Sequential & Interleave)

 

Edge aligned data output, center aligned data input

 

Serial presence detect with EEPROM

 

PCB Height: 1,181 mil

 

As you can see, Kingmax has done its work on producing a stable memory module. While being rated at CL2.5 for DDR-400, this memory is rated at CL2 for DDR-333 operations, so very easily you can use it on any current DDR-333 board with a minimum of fuss and a full burst of power.

 

Now that we have looked at the specs, lets take a look at the module!
