    Transcend Information Inc. (Transcend), a global leader in the manufacture of high performance memory modules, is proud to unveil aXeRam™ DDR3-1800+ Extreme Performance memory. Designed specifically for hard-core gamers using only top-binned, premium quality DRAM chips and custom high-purity aluminum heat sinks with cooling fins, the aXeRam DDR3-1800 dual-channel kit delivers amazing high-speed overclocking performance while maintaining cool temperatures and rock-solid system stability.

    Transcend’s 2GB aXeRam DDR3-1800 kit’s two identically-matched 240-pin unbuffered 1GB DDR3 1800MHz DIMMs are carefully matched for use in dual-channel configuration, which together provide memory bandwidth of up to 28.8GB/s. To ensure extra-stability and signal integrity at high clock speeds, all aXeRam modules use robust eight-layer PCBs that fully comply with JEDEC standards. The aXeRam 128Mx8 DDR3 DRAM chips are selected with the strictest quality and performance standards and are manufactured using small Fine-Pitch Ball Grid Array (FBGA) packages to assure better thermal dissipation, electrical efficiency and improved overclocking performance. Transcend’s aXeRam DDR3-1800 modules also support new Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) technology, which allows users with high-performance motherboards to easily overclock their memory with aXerRam’s built-in aggressive speed-maximized profiles, or manually input their own memory timing parameters to take their system to the next level.

    There's no 3 channel desktop platform, as and when 3-ch boards do come out, they'll continue to sell these in kits so people buy two of them and end up buying an extra module, or dual-ch + single module. Either way these people profit.

    I imagine they use some form of Micron chips in these. We've seen kits out with 2000mhz ratings, so I bet these puppies will oc to probably 1850 to 1900 at the most, if we are lucky. Should be interesting to see someone review them :D

    1800 MHz @ 1.8v, 8-8-8-24, imagine at slightly higher voltage, say 2.0v.
