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.
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.
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.
