The Inquirer have looked into GeIL's latest method of pairing up the perfect duo of memory modules for their dual channel kits, this by means of a newly-developed "Dual Channel Making Machine" - interesting!

They also delve into the fastest DDR-II modules currently on market (not by OCZ, nor Corsair, but GeIL!), these being the "GeIL PC2-8600 MultiSpec DDR kit".

IN THE WORLD of enthusiasts, there are only couple of names when it comes to memory known for overclocking: Corsair, OCZ, G.Skill and GeIL. However, GeIL is the company which floated the most, with some models not even working on specs that were declared by the sticker - as remembered on the old 433 MHz specc'ed Golden Dragon modules.

However, things do change - GeIL used Computex Taipei 2006 as a place for releasing its fastest memory to date, which just happens to be the fastest specc'ed DDR-II memory modules out there. The retail package contains two memory modules with 1GB per module, and the company can thank the memory performance to their newly-developed Dual Channel Making Machine, a memory sorter which enables hand-picking sort of all 32 chips that are spreaded on two DIMMs. Once the sorter does the job, the ideal configured chips are being glued to the PCB and then retested again. End result is "dual-channel" memory from the memory chip onwards.
