Mushkin DDR-2 533MHz using Infineon chip
64x64 module density
32x8 chip density
- The Packaging
Mushkin packaging is probably the best computer packaging in the world but with this said also the most expensive to ship.
Mushkin are the only company we know who can send two pieces of memory in a box the size of a Shuttle XPC small form factor computer. Mushkin ship their memory in an inflatable plastic bubble where the memory is seated safely inside. We absolutely love it but if you're buying from Mushkin and need the modules shipped overseas, the freight would be an absolute killer.
We would be more then happy to send a box of two modules around the world and know that they will come back together unharmed.
- The Modules
Mushkin are hiding their chips beyond a tightly bound heat spreader. As we mentioned, a heat spreader shouldn't really play too much importance on DDR-2 at the moment as it uses less voltage which mean it generates less heat.
It is an excellent looking heat spreader with the name Mushkin raised slightly and the words "Enhanced Memory" engraved into it. While Mushkin are using a heat spreader, they haven't made any misleading claims of it being better (like Corsair XMS which is just the same as their cheaper Value Select series with the inclusion of a heat spreader) then all the other memory so it is really only included for cosmetic reasons.
