Mushkin Enhanced, a global leader in high-performance computer products, announced today the release of two new Blackline Ridgeback 2000 MHz parts. Equipped with the sleek yet aggressive Ridgeback heatsink, these kits, composed of 4GB modules, provide blazing-fast DDR3-2000 performance. The high-density modules will leave additional memory expansion slots unpopulated (compared to 4 x 2GB and 6 x 2GB kits), allowing end-users to further boost their memory capacity in the future. Another benefit of the higher-density modules is the ability to run in the recommended “one DIMM per channel” configuration, which lessens the load on the memory controller and allows the best results for overclocking.

“These new high-density overclocking memory kits usher in a new era of performance computing. Typically, when higher capacity DRAM becomes available, the overclocking results are mediocre. However, through our unsurpassed research and product development process, we’ve been able to push these 4GB modules to speeds that rival and even surpass most 2GB DIMMs available today,”said Brian Flood, Mushkin Enhanced director of product development.



Part Numbers:
  • 996953 – 8GB (2x4GB) PC3-16000 (DDR3-2000) 10-10-10-27 1.65V
  • 998953 –12GB (3x4GB) PC3-16000 (DDR3-2000) 10-10-10-27 1.65V

I don't know, timing wise yeah, but usually you can get about the same clock speeds out of both... and that seems to be reflected in how awful those timings are.
