Mushkin PC3500 DDR SDRAM

Memory speeds continue to increase as the need for more bandwidth is required for all of todays games and applications. Mushkin not to be left behind has kept pace with the likes of Corsair, Geil and OCZ with their own PC3500 DDR SDRAM. Is the extra cost of Mushkin memory worth it? Read on as Cameron "Sov" Johnson gives us the answer.

Mushkin are one of the oldest memory manufacturers who have officially supported the overclockers. It was Mushkin who first brought out high speed PC133 SDRAM in the days of the Intel 440BX chipset, well before VIAs push on the standard.

 

Mushkin moved on to produce one of the first PC150 SDRAM modules for people wanting higher speeds out of their overclocking rigs. 150MHz was the last of the SDRAM modules that Mushkin was willing to produce, seeing that DDR SDRAM would be the future, and concentrated their entire R&D on PC1600 and 2100 DDR SDRAM modules.

 

Mushkins first DDR modules were not known for their overclocking abilities, and companies like Corsair, OCZ and Kingmax were able to capitalise on faster modules. Now with partners like Winbond for memory modules, Mushkin has moved towards the top of the DDR SDRAM market.

 

We have in our labs today the Mushkin PC3500 (DDR-433) memory modules. How does it stack up? Let's see.
