Winchip PC2-9600 DDR2 RAM
Ever since Intel released the 3 series chipset, DDR2 has had the wind taken from its sails so that DDR3 could make waves. This was meant with the best intentions, but as DDR3 was released to the public it didn't take long for people to realize it was still too immature to compete against DDR2 in regards to performance. This put the weight of the world back on the shoulders of DDR2, which has just earned a reprieve from execution. But now that manufacturers are tooling up for DDR3 production, there are only a few names remaining on the shrinking list which are still releasing high-performance system memory for the DDR2 platform. Winchip still knows that DDR2 has performance potential left in it, and offers the 1200MHz PC2-9600 2GB DDR2 RAM Kit to Benchmark Reviews for testing.
Since desktop computer sales have suffered yet another decline for the second straight quarter of 2007, it makes perfect sense for computer enthusiasts to just wait a little longer for technology to catch up to the DDR3 platform and stick it out with DDR2. Nobody expects DDR3 to suddenly land on the scene and proclaim victory, at least nobody with a memory for what happened when DDR replaced SDRAM and DDR2 replaced DDR. Until the next-generation of 45nm Intel CPU's arrive, which will feature enough of a performance gain to warrant a new system based on the Yorkfield and Wolfdale cores, DDR2 is still plenty strong. In fact, with companies like Winchip still pushing out 1200MHz DDR2 (PC2-9600) modules, there is no legitimate reason to make the move.
This article will be the first in a series of reviews which size up a few of the last and final offerings to the DDR2 market. Over the next few weeks, Benchmark Reviews will feature a review from some of the less commercial names in the memory industry. In this review, Winchip begins our series with their DDR2 1200MHz PC2-9600 2GB RAM Kit. We utilize the new P35 chipset to make our basis comparisons, and even size it up against DDR3.
