Thanks to the release of the Intel Canterwood and Springdale chipsets memory has become a huge part of the computer industry again. Memory is one of those products where demand can be high one day and low the next. While we are currently in high demand for it, companies all over the world are producing faster memory.
Recently in our Dual Channel DDR-400 roundup we saw the latest in memory modules battle it out for top spot. Two brands really shined in our article, one being Crucial and the other being Kingmax. Both modules did exceptionally well yet our particular Crucial modules were able to outshine the Kingmax product when it came to overclocking.
Kingmax have been in the memory game a long time, 10 years to be exact and have created quite a good name for themselves. People may remember back when we were using SDRAM, Kingmax were the first company to release PC-150 to the market, thanks to its success we saw other companies like Mushkin then follow.
Kingmax have decided to go out on a limb and release a memory module that isn't aimed at the average user and instead that little overclocker that is inside of all us - something Kingmax have never really gambled with before now. Some people will go out big and purchase expensive memory modules who want to get the absolute best performance out of their system but if you're only a regular overclocker or new to the game you may be better off with something a bit cheaper. These particular PC-3500 or DDR433 modules are going to be perfect for a lot of people who have just moved over to the Canterwood/Springdale chipset and want to up their FSB a little bit and get a little extra performance out of their systems - just like we all want.
Thanks to Ken from Kingmax Australia we are the first website to have a look at these new modules. Let's check them out!
