AMD Spider platform RAM from Kingston

1,066MHz DDR2 modules
By: Lars Göran Nilsson | RAM News | Posted: Nov 20, 2007 8:56 am

Kingston has announced a range of DDR2 modules for AMD's newly launched Spider platform and we're talking 1,066MHz modules with a rather high latencty of 7-7-7-20. These are 1,066MHz modules and they operate at 1.8V. The reason for the DDR3 like latencies comes down to two reasons, first of all the high clock speeds, but secondly and most importantly, these are ValueRAM modules and not the faster HyperX type.


We can somewhat forgive the high latencies for the target market and the price seems to be fairly reasonable as well at US$170 for a 1GB kit and US$340 for a 2GB kit. An individual 512MB module goes for US$89 and 1GB modules for US$178. You'll most like be able to find them for less than the MSRP though, but you might as well stick with some cheaper DDR2 800 modules at lower latency.
