Mushkin XP2-8500 Memory Review

Price: $359.99 US


When you hear the name Mushkin, you think quality products. Today we will be looking at one of the top-of-the-line sets of performance memory made by Mushkin. This is a 2x1024MB kit rated at 1066MHz with 5-5-4-12 timings. Recently, Mushkin has started shipping all of its top line modules with EPP (Enhanced Performance Profile) programming for a truly plug and play experience.

Mushkin was founded in 1994 and is based out of Denver, Colorado. Mushkin is best known for its “Enhanced“ line of products for not only its memory modules but also its latest endeavor into the power supply market. Customers of the company’s products are as diverse as NASA, Apple and right on down to the enthusiast market.

Closer Look:

The packaging is your standard flip open clamshell type enclosure. The modules are a press in fit to prevent any damage during transit.


This set of modules includes features such as enhanced frequency, enhanced timings and Frostbyte Tecnology. These modules are rated at 5-5-4-12 at 1066 MHz.

After looking at these modules, I could not wait to see how well they would perform. Time to get them installed and see what they can do.
