Default "SLi" (Enhance Performance Profile-EPP) RAM lineups

For people that want performance RAM, there are only 4 manufacturers that make EPP RAMs. But a little intro.

"NVIDIA and Corsairís Enhanced Performance Profile specification is gaining support from other memory manufacturers. Marketed as SLi-Ready memory the Enhanced Performance Profiles are essentially an extension to the JEDEC SPD specification. Usually the SPD is programmed with a single set of memory timings. Enhanced Performance Profiles allow for two full profiles that include timings, memory voltage, drive strength, etc or four half profiles that only contain memory timings."


First off, Corsair. Of course they're well known for their reliable, high performance system memory. Their new line of EPP RAM increases their reputation even further.
http://www.corsairmemory.com/corsair...R2-800_CL3.pdf


Kingston EPP compatible modules include the HyperX lineup. Low latency DDR2-800 modules will be available initially. Latency is rated for 4-4-4-12 and available in 2x512MB and 2x1GB kits. Expect a premium cost over non-EPP modules. As Kingston is known to produce hand-picked overclocking memory, it wouldnít be surprising to see Kingston release EPP compatible DDR2-900, DDR2-1000, and/or DDR2-1066 modules in the near future.

OCZ Technology is the other company going for new EPP performance RAMs. The latest addition to the OCZ Technology memory lineup is the Platinum EPP Edition modules. Available as DDR2-900 modules with 4-4-3 memory latencies the Platinum EPP Edition modules are catered towards performance enthusiasts looking to extract more performance out of their socket AM2 systems. Platinum EPP modules will be available in single modules and dual channel kits.

Lastly on the list of EPP supporting memory manufacturers is the one I posted before. It's the Mushkin Redline. The latest addition to the Mushkin REDLINE memory lineup is the XP2-8000 REDLINE modules. These modules are available in single 512MB, 1GB modules or in 1GB, 2GB dual channel kits. Latencies are rated at a low 4-5-4-11 at a 1 GHz operating frequency.

It's a short little review, but it gives you guys some insight on what is best for you, if you're willing to pay a premium for these babies.

wooow, how retarded. Who needs SLI memory? If its aimed toward the enthusiast market, sorry, but a lof of them overclock anyways. I find SLI memory to be useless. Its just another thing that memory makes and nvidia can slap on to jack up the prices.

Well for the people who dont really know what all the memory options in thier BIOS's do this can be good. This way they can get the most out of their memory.

Yeah, but most of the time the BIOSes have already a dual channel function that they will enable, so why SLIing memory?

BIOS, by default, will in most cases enable Dual Channel. Mine says 1024MB RAM Dual Channel PC-3200. Automatically detecs and sets up.

Haha, another useless niche idea from nVIDIA. First they have Quad SLI, which is extremely useless unless you have two 30" monitors to use it with. Now they have SLI Memory which is even more useless because enthusiasts (thats the market I assume they are aiming at) like to overclock and push their RAM to it's limits.

I think it just makes it easier to OC. You have to admit though, that those are great RAMs. Low latency and high bandwidth make these sticks a performer.
