    AENEON, a Qimonda AG brand, announced the availability of its new XTUNE DDR3-1333 CL8 memory modules. DDR3 is the upcoming memory technology which will be mainly used in high-end desktop platforms. The XTUNE DDR3 series is the AENEON solution for these platforms addressing enthusiasts’ highest performance needs as well as enabling fast, stable and reliable system operation. The XTUNE DDR3-1333 memory modules are offered in dual channel kits with two identical modules (2x1GB) tested to run at 1333MHz at a latency timing of 8-8-8-15 at the standard DDR3 voltage value of 1.5V. The 240-pin DIMMs are equipped with gold contacts and a high-quality heat spreader to avoid critical operating temperatures. The XTUNE DDR3-1333 Dual Channel Kit 2x1GB is available now through the authorized AENEON sales representatives and distributors for $400.

    well at least the prices are coming down some.

    these are nice looking memory too and I love the heat sinks.

    Moving from DDR to DDR2 was the same thing, high latencies needed to acheive high clocks. But the thing is, the trade-off is pretty good. Double the latency might be a pain or AMDs that love low latencies, but running at higher speeds allows higher memory throughput.
    And, I just imagine that running at double the speed, having double the latencies will be cancelled out, so 1333MHz @ 8-8-8-15 ends up being less than half the latency needed for some DDR2 modules to run at 667MHz (of course, older/lower end modules apply here). Should cancel out the higher lats, atleast that's how I see it, but I could just be talkin' crazy talk.

    Also, it's still just being released, give it some time, I'm sure someone will be able to run DDR3 at 1600MHz-1800MHz with those latencies at some point, with 1333MHz being acheived at much lower.
