Qimonda AG today announced it is supporting NVIDIA Corporation’s nForce 790i SLI platform with its new 1GB Aeneon XTUNE DDR3-1600 DRAM modules. The combination of NVIDIA’s first DDR3 ready platform and Qimonda’s DDR3 memory technology offers gamers a path to intelligent scaling of graphics performance.




Qimonda has tested its Aeneon XTUNE 1GB DDR3 modules at overclock rates greater than 1680 MHz using a nominal supply voltage of 1.5V. The ability to provide high-level gaming performance at low voltage reduces the amount of power consumed and the heat generated, which reduces cooling requirements and can enhance system reliability and life expectancy.

“Gamers constantly look for ways to stretch system performance to get the best experience, and running system components at greater than specified speeds is a common technique for achieving that goal,” said Bryn Young, Director Memory Sales and Marketing, NVIDIA Corporation. “Qimonda has demonstrated its XTUNE DDR3 memory modules operating at impressive overclock rates while maintaining the nominal 1.5V supply voltage.”

“Qimonda leverages an inherent power saving advantage in its chip design, along with module design experience, to allow overclockers to reach maximum performance,” said Dr Carsten Gatzke, Vice President of Qimonda’s Channel and Retail Business Unit. “In conjunction with the NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI platform, the Aeneon XTUNE modules will allow gamers to obtain maximum enjoyment from their systems. This support is significant as it reflects our commitment to make our foray into the gaming market with the Aeneon XTUNE series which is specifically developed for the PC gamers and enthusiasts.”

Technical information on Aeneon XTUNE DDR3-1600
The new XTUNE DDR3-1600 is developed to harness the full potential of the latest chipset in the market including NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI platform at a power efficient mode. The memory module is available as 2x1GB kit. It is tested to run at 1600MHz at a latency timing of CL9 with the low supply voltage of 1.5V, providing a bandwidth of up to 12.800 MByte/s on module level. The memory modules also feature the Enhanced Performance Profile 2 (EPP2) to perform their full potential when used in the NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI platform.

Availability and pricing
The XTUNE DDR3-1600 Dual Channel Kit (2x 1GB) is available now through the authorized Aeneon sales representatives and distributors for US$ 340.

I was unaware GDDR3 @ 2000MHz was crappy for your standards. My 8800GT runs just fine, so I don't know what your troubles are... :wtf:
Yeah, 2k is all it can do. Increased V doesn't do jack either.

Now, if we had samsung chips...

Does Samsung even produce GDDR3 chips that fast? I know they've been working on GDDR4 for quite a while and even have GDDR5 samples working at insane frequencies, but I'm not so sure if their GDDR3 chips go beyond 2 GHz. Which (if it did), would be really odd, as I think some graphics card manufacturers owe us all an explanation why Samsung wasn't selected/included (perhaps they have a good reason, though).

Samsung's overclock, Qimonda's crash immediately after 2 ghz no matter what V you give them. It's kind of like buying a CPU that O/Cs 5 mhz while the other brand overclocks 200 (well, more like several hundred depending on which ones you have. It makes a big difference in perf. considering the g92s are bandwidth starved. You can get to 800 mhz core easy, but yields practically no benefit).

Qimonda is cheap, that's why they screwed us. I'm sorry, but I'll pay a few dollar premium for the best parts. I don't go out and buy an import with a american parts in it, do I? LOL

Unfortunately my few extra dollars stop at the GTS' price haha. I think it's the best bang for the buck, but you know, with gov't forcing us into a depression and all, it's a little expensive.

Upping the memory doesn't really do anything on the 8800GT. My card gets exactly the same frame rates with the mem at 950 or 1050, both with a core speed of 778 linked shaders. Haven't tried the stock 900 tho. Maybe I'll give it a shot, as a point of reference. Upping the core is way more beneficial, followed next by the shaders, then last the memory. The 1000Mhz you can get out of the Quimonda is more than enough.

But alas, I agree I'd rather have the Samsungs, if nothing else than for the piece of mind knowing that i can OC the snot out of them if I desire. lol.

Go high resolution and see what happens. It is very hungry for bandwidth.

Even in that case, the core speed is still more important/beneficial. 1000MHz is still plenty for 99% of all users out there. It might actually matter at what, 2560x1600?

Idk, I've seen benchmarks, no improvement at all above 800.

And my monitor can do 2500x1600 ;)
