    Mushkin today announced its new XP3 series DDR3 modules at the CeBIT Mushkin booth (Hall 21, Stand A09). "It's our pleasure to announce the XP3 series modules at CeBIT this year", said Brian Flood, Mushkin director of product development. "Our latest eXtreme Performance modules provide enhanced bandwidth over the aging DDR2 technology and allow overclocked multicore processors to perform to their fullest."

    Part Numbers:
    • 991600 - 1GB XP3-12800 (DDR3-1600) CL7-7-6-18 1.85-1.9V
    • 996600 - 2GB (2x1GB) XP3-12800 (DDR3-1600) CL7-7-6-18 1.85-1.9V
    • 991601 - 2GB XP3-12800 (DDR3-1600) CL7-7-6-18 1.85-1.9V
    • 996601 - 4GB (2x2GB) XP3-12800 (DDR3-1600) CL7-7-6-18 1.85-1.9V
    • 991602 - 1GB XP3-14400 (DDR3-1800) CL8-8-7-20 1.9-1.95V
    • 996602 - 2GB (2x1GB) XP3-14400 (DDR3-1800) CL8-8-7-20 1.9-1.95V
    The XP3 modules will be available worldwide in the beginning of April.

    DDR PC3200 (DDR 400) was roughly at CL3 better ram could be had at CL2
    DDR2 PC6400 (DDR2 800)was roughly at CL4 average CL5 (remember this is double PC3200)
    DDR3 PC12800 (DDR3 1600) hasn't reached CL6 yet let alone CL5. I'll wait

    Remember PC12800 is double PC6400...see the coalition? Yet we are finding timings in the CL7s and CL8s and they want to call that extreme performance? You gotta be kidding me? No way am I buying into that! I remember when people complained about DDR2 when it 1st came out with timing at CL5 and CL6 (very expensive back then) and they tried to sell the idea "that's the way it was" low and behold they didn't sell well and other companies started to compete by using lower timing at CL4. This looks to me like the start of DDR2 all over again. Which makes me wonder what they plan on charging for DDR3 when it does reach CL5/CL6?

    the higher the speed the higher the lat, no way will it get to cas 5.

    Do you even know what those timings mean? Or how the amount of time they actually take is dynamic based on the clock speed of the chip?

    edit- sorry i sound kinda rude here, long day, the actual delay in time is decreases based on the mhz the chip is running at.

    edit2- basically what i was getting at is that considering the clock speed that those chips are running at they should give really excellent performance because of their high bandwidth, and the delay in ns actually isn't that high when you factor in the frequency its running at.

    +1 ^ besides thats at stock voltage and speeds thats what they can run at...1.9v? for the 4gb kit? id say you can run them at 2.1 2.2v if your ballzy and i bet you could tighten those.

    if you want refrance look at this

    http://xtreview.com/review198.htm

    and remember thats overclocked DDR2 vs DDR3, as DDR2 specifications state DDR2 400-800, DDR3 is 800-2200 i belive

    As in the case of DDR2 which only reinforces what I've said before. From DDR2 CL5 to DDR2 CL4, for example. So in all we will see a lower CL from DDR3 but we just have to wait.

    Thanks

    1600 CL7 is actually a little tighter than 800 CL4.

    my CT-5 sticks do 550@2-3-3-5(2.75v) im going to pop them in my new s939 rig and pumps some volts to see if i can do 600+ @2.0-x-x-x timings
