Kingmax "Hardcore Series" DDR-466 and DDR-500 Memory

Kingmax has recently brought their new line of "Hardcore Series" and affordable DDR-466 and DDR-500 memory modules to the market. We test with an ABIT IC7 MAX3 motherboard and see just how far we can ramp up the clock speeds of both sets of memory.

Introduction

 

The last product that grabbed our attention from Kingmax Technology was their DDR-433 memory based on the highly popular and very affordable SuperRAM series. Over the past few months the memory market has died down a lot when it comes to performance memory. Toward the end of last year we saw a lot of memory companies hitting the peak as they pushed the limits of extreme memory speeds. Folks such as Corsair have been able to do a little bit more, as has OCZ, but as a result it comes at such a high price that it just isn't realistic for a lot of users.

 

We first got word that Kingmax were working on DDR-466 and DDR-500 modules at Computex 2003 and we were pleased to find that they decided to follow the very popular and high quality BGA technology that Kingmax which helped put the company in the position they are in today.

 

Kingmax could have simply decided to follow their SuperRAM series and release it in DDR-466 and DDR-500 but they have gone all out this time and moved back over to the beloved BGA memory which has done quite well in both of our Dual Channel memory comparison articles in the past.

 

Let's get stuck into it and see what Kingmax have done with their BGA technology at DDR-466 and DDR-500.
