DDR-400 Dual Channel Memory Roundup - Part 1

By: Shawn Baker | Editorials in RAM | Posted: Jun 22, 2003 4:00 am



Kingmax are one of the largest memory manufactories in the world and we saw this for ourselves when Kingmax were kind enough to let us tour their factory when in Taiwan for Computex last year especially thanks to our counterparts at Kingmax Technology Australia (namely Ken Barsley) who supplied the samples for this article and all our previous content.


Kingmax are not a company who concentrate on overclockers but one who want to simply produce a lot of high quality memory module that does what it says - if it goes further it is a bonus.





Module Size: 2 X 256MB


Package: 184-pin DIMM


Features: DDR PC3200


Configuration: 16 Meg X 16 Kingmax


Error Checking: Non-parity


Speed: 400MHz


Voltage: 2.5V


SDRAM Timings: CL=2.5




Kingmax are the first memory module we have since so far which offers a retail packaging. Kingmax has chosen to go a very simply design that simply states the speed of the memory module and its size along with a few other items such as the technology used, in this case TinyBGA. The packaging isn't fancy but it is nice to see something slightly more exciting then a simple antistatic bag.




Kingmax use a technology as talked about in the Terminology section of the article known as Tiny BGA.




We will see later on if this new technology makes any difference as far as performance is concerned. It is definitely worth noting that the modules offered by Kingmax are the cheapest and we will see if this carries over performance and if it is able to keep pace with the more expensive modules.
