    Geil showed off 2 prototypes (A and B), both having some unique headspreaders. The functionality is the same on both. The voltage can be adjusted up to 3.0V with a screwdriver. The curcuits reside on the top of the memory, thus making it higher than the usual. No fancy LEDs, no scrolling text, just cold, calculated funktionality.

    This looks interesting... I wonder how its going to work... it looks like a DDR booster and memory combined in one... It would be interesting to know what happens when you set DDR voltage to above 3V on your mobo...

    Also, I'm curious to find out if this PCB is any better than Brainpower.

    is this DDR or DDR2 tho?

    if it powers off a floppy connector, it may just be powering itself, completely bypassing the system power...

    It should be DDR1, becouse of the Vdimm = 3V. ;)

    Edit: Ok, it is DDR2 -

    It is powered separately, so mobo voltage does not matter...
