Article: DDR2-667 and DDR2-800: An 11-kit Overclocking Comparison

As DDR2 solutions continue to gain higher clock frequencies and tighter timings, we review the overclocking potential of eleven kits from the categories of PC2-5400 (DDR2-667) and PC2-6400 (DDR2-800). The last few months we haven’t seen many large changes in the memory market other than confirming the change in standards from DDR to DDR2, a large part of which can be accredited to the AM2 launch which had both Intel and AMD supporting a unified memory solution again. The popularity of Core 2 chips among enthusiasts has also greatly spurred the popularity of DDR2 because it is the only memory standard compatible with the, as of right now, performance-crown-holding processors.
