TwinMOS 256MB DDR400 Memory Review (Page 1)

JEDEC have only just approved the PC2700 memory standard, and we are already seeing a lot of memory manufacturers coming out with their DDR400 modules even though JEDEC are still in the works of approving it. Asher "Acid" Moses takes a look at one such PC3200 module from up and coming Taiwanese company, TwinMOS. Does it have what it takes to compete with the well known memory brands in overclocking tests? Read on and find out!

Introduction

Although there isn't yet an official JEDEC specification for DDR400 memory, we are already starting to see DDR400 modules popping up all over the place from a variety of different manufacturers. In the past we have taken a look at DDR400 modules from Corsair and Kingmax, and each were impressive in their own way. While Corsair's module is directed at hardcore overclockers, Kingmax's product is targeting the mainstream, more price conscious market.

The latest DDR400 module to hit our labs is manufactured by TwinMOS and you could say it is in between both the Corsair and Kingmax modules. While it does offer very impressive overclocking potential, it doesn't cost you the premium that Corsair's memory does.
