    MSC – German manufacturer of high-end electronics and memory modules – introduced today their DDR3-lineup under the CellShock brand which will be available immediately. The new product line includes two 2GB memory kits with 1600MHz (CS3222270) and 1800MHz (CS3222580) nominal working frequencies that boast competitive features compared with the other existing solutions. Based on Micron DDR3 ICs and binned to aggressive CL7-6-6-18 (1600MHz) and CL8-7-6-21 (1800MHz) timings both products represent the lowest latency 1600 and 1800 kits available on the market. Both DDR3 kits are already available in stores. Their recommended retail price is set at $439 and $499 respectively. CellShock modules come with 5-year warranty.

    nice to see timings getting down a bit on ddr3 they dont look to shabby, if anyone wants to send me some i will gladly do a review (oh and a board supporting ddr3 and a 8800ultra to) :toast:

    Dayum that really is fast (he says here looking at my 808MHz DDR2 modules.....), I want some.

    Damn that's really fast. I'm still on 553 mhz ram :banghead:. They're already scaling beyond official speeds.....awesome, wait...close to beyond official speeds

    So how long before you think we see CAS6 2000MHz? lol

    Why does it matter?

    You're not going to see a performance improvement over DDR2 1066Mhz unless you can overclock your FSB to 1000Mhz (4000 effective), because DDR2 1066Mhz saturates the maximum ~500Mhz FSB reached by today's motherboards. Or, if you can cool your P35 chipset with LN2, then you may need DDR2 1200Mhz memory to saturate it.

    Still Trying...

    DDR3 Modules for those who bite, chew, and swallow hype… or who simply can!

    Yes, it’s nice to know that engineers and manufacturers are continually advancing DDR3’s performance. However, these (as well as previous and subsequent modules) will be marketed and sold as superior to DDR2, sadly. And many sheep will follow. This, in spite of the fact it has not come close to matching the performance available on mainstream DDR2 kits (much less high-end).

    I know – the business end of the deal dictates these (lesser performing parts than the previous generation) will help finance initial investments and further development.

    But, until timings reach – at least – 300MHz per CAS (Column Address Strobe) latency figure, these will take a back seat to DDR2. All of those eye-catching high frequency figures mean nothing when paired with high CAS latencies. Granted, MSC Intros CellShock DDR3 is (and an increasing number of other products are becoming) the exception and the trend will continue down the path of lower latencies. But, until then, there’s no real advantage to DDR3 over DDR2. No need to test – we can all do the math:

    DDR1 = 400 MHz / CL2 = 200 MHz (per Column Address Strobe)
    DDR1 = 500 MHz / CL2.5 = 200 MHz (per Column Address Strobe)
    DDR2 = 800 MHz / CL4 = 200 MHz (per Column Address Strobe)
    DDR2 = 1066 MHz / CL4 = 266 MHz (per Column Address Strobe)
    DDR2 = 1333 MHz / CL4 = 333 MHz (per Column Address Strobe)

    MSC Intros CellShock DDR3
    DDR3 = 1600 MHz / CL7 229 Mhz
    DDR3 = 1800 MHz / CL8 225 Mhz

    Some might argue DDR3 can be overclocked and, hence, improve these figures. However, that argument is moot considering there are DDR1 and DDR2 products which far surpass the standard figures (above), when overclocked or when timings are tightened.

    DDR3. It’s getting better… but, just not there yet (as it was with DDR1 over DDR2 for quite some time).

    so I'd say DDR1800 should be fairing pretty well right about now considering DDR2 will be at its top end limit to compete with ddr3.

    Add in an AMD system where you won't be FSB bottlenecked and I bet the game will change quite a bit.

    Theoretical numbers aren't always what you see when it comes to memory.....

    Superpi sure says its fast :D

    Theres potential in DDR3 when it matures most definitely. 1156Mhz already.

    Really, you all are gasping at nothing here. These arent new numbers by a long shot and the price is quite high. Not to mention, I have never heard of this company before today.

    latencies are still high and I could have sworn I saw a news post awhile back from another mem maker with these speeds and lower timings (like 6667 or something like that)

    You have never heard of CellShock ..? They are a german company have been around since 1979 , mind you i have never tried their stuff so dont know how good it is. Most likely you can't get cellshock in the States ..?

    It has only been available in england for about 9-12 months, i made a post here and another forum and none of the americans had heard of it then, i imagine they've only gone international very recently, from what i've read about it so far, it's very good stuff though
