Mushkin Releases 996580X2 DDR2 Memory

Mushkin today announced a new DDR2 800 MHz, 2x 2GB dual-channel memory kit, the XP2 series model 996580X2. The product targeted at the mainstream thru value segments. Mushkin adopted a simplistic product design which includes two modules without heatspreaders. The modules operate at voltages between 2 and 2.1V and DRAM timings of 4-4-4-12. The modules use an 8-layer black coloured PCB to reduce electronic noise. Mushkin plans to sell this kit for 46 to 49 Euros including taxes.

not too bad of a price wonder what chips they use. maybe it would be good for someone that doesn't overclock

so 900mhz maybe for 24/7. I would think this would be good for maybe someone who doesn't want to overclock the ram much. maybe a HTPC

I agree judging by the voltage and speed. ProMOS chips are very popular for manufacturers currently.

your ram uses Promos,powerchip maybe D9s not for sure take a look here http://ramlist.i4memory.com/ddr2/


after looking again i am thinking promos
but because of OCZ's low voltage rating i am thinking Micron D9s

DDR2 800 MHz ram is for the weak. 1066 or bust!

I'm looking into that, says micron d9 for chips produced before 2008. I bought these in the summer of 08

what kinda clocks do you get? If 1100+mhz @CL5 @2.2-2.3v then i think it would be D9s

I'll have to double check. never really did any work on the RAM but I'll give it a shot.

good D9's would give 1100 cas5 2.1v easy, however shit D9JLN wont do 1100 ;)

they can't be d9gmh/d9gkx since d9gmh and d9gkx can only be 1gb sticks

Cheers pos, Really useful link man :toast:.

That ram looks good and if the pricing is right then even better mushkin is usually way out of my budget.

900? No way. I own OCZ XTC Rev. 2 ram and they are ProMOS as well, I oc'd them to 1002MHz before with some help and they seemed stable on most of my stress tests. So expect this memory to do better.

4-4-4-12, 2.25V. It wasen't stable enough for Crysis on some of its levels so I slowed down. If my next mobo won't support it, I'm rolling with either Mushkin or Corsair.
