Will all the enthusiast kits transition to 30nm in a few months? Seems like if they don't samsung could undercut the whole enthusiast market.
nice, where to actually them in europe? (Germany/UK that will ship to the DK)
That memory was available in US even before Christmas 2011. So most of enthusiast just don't know about it. Some Asian guys did first reviews long time ago.
Where did you find them for $30 OP? Cheapest I could find was at Microcenter for $47.
Yea I think he mixed up the price of the 4GB (2GBx2) and 8GB (4GBx2) kits.
im pretty sure micron,elpida, and Hynix are already pushing 30nm to the shelves. I seen something about a month back about Elpida testing is 20nm production already
Where in Canada can you buy these?
Ah, you know, that's the price for a single stick on the samsung website. You can find the singlesided 2 GB sticks for less than $15.
They can be purchased from Samsung directly:
And, it looks like the price dropped a little bit on the Samsung site, too.
Samsung has 20nm products on the go too(listed as under development). When I heard the kit was coming, I thought it might be 20nm!
full listing and spec sheets here:
These things rock! If I ever am able to upgrade from LGA775 and get DDR3 then I'm for sure getting these and doing 1.45 V @2133 MHz 11-11-11-28. That really seems like a good OC.
hmm that's not for europe ._.
Thank you for the in depth detail's
Excellent work, as always TPU Rocks!!!!
Thank you to all who helped me get these screaming!
I have 4 sets of these and they rock, and to think samsung have 20nm to come too later ( hopefully for desktop )
They worked great in my 2 intel setup ( 775\1155 ) and my AM3 setup.
And according to there site they are rated 1.35v to 1.50v.
Love the review and if any thing the packaging is the 1st thing about them lol.
from the listing on the Samsung site, yes 20nm products will come in desktop sticks too, but it looks liek they will all be 1.35v, although there should be LP and normal PCBs, too.
I went through every spec sheet, seems 1.5 V sticks are the normal-sized PCB, and the 1.35 V is the LP PCB.
oh looks like oc uk got them: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-017-SA
Even their spec sheet on their site as changed too as they used to say 1.35-1.50v
All so remember that Samsungs warranty on this ram is 8 years and 3 months.
Does anybody knows where to buy this memory in Europe ?
Wow, a lot there is changing it seems, nearly half the spec sheets now give 403 errors at hte moment, but when i checked on Monday, they worked fine.
Also, it's a "Limited Lifetime" warranty...i know it says 99 months, but...lifetime is lifetime!(considers lifetime may be product lifetime)
Unfortunately, not at the moment. I did mention as a con that this kit has limited availability depending on where in the world you are.
oc.uk got them cadaveca: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-017-SA
i wrote that if u scroll up ^^;
Hah, it wasn't showing yet, page hadn't update, thanks for the link, i think quite a few people may use it!
I like how that listing adds "superpi stable too!".
Uh, if it doesn't pass superpi, in my experience, it's not stable! no wonder they quote higher clocks!!!
and then their 9-9-9-27 clocks didn't reach 1866 @ 1.35 V? weird...must be sub-timings.
can you test these on an amd platform too? (am3+ or fm1)
I have. The scaling for OC is very similar, although a wee bit more voltage for the DIMM itself is required for some reason. I use X79 for reviews as the clocking is really good, and the performance is great for showing real differences in performance. If, in the future, there are kits specific to a platform that requires testing on that platform, I'll adjust the test paltform at that time.
Or do you have a different question?
I always test ram on all current platforms. That means AM3+, FM1, 1155, and 2011. It clocks very much the same on 1155, but both AMD paltforms seem to have a bit more trouble in OC, but to me, this is normal.
I have not yet tested with an FX chip(I used an 1100T), but I will do that when time provides(maybe this weekend). I have several other reviews I am working on so my time is quite limited at the moment. During the day I'm taking care of my son while testing(which works great as he likes to see all the new parts too), and during the night I can be found on the TPU BF3 TeamSpeak, as there are quite a few of us that play nightly.
LuLz. While writing this post, I went and got my son a snack, had to reboot the test rig doing memtest, and change some settings becuase it was showing errors. AND I switched laundry. Memory testing takes a fair bit of time, but it fits really well with all the other things I gotta do, so if there is something specific you are looking for let me know, and I can take a look. If I don't have an answer in a couple of days, remind me, as the hectic schedule I've got means I sometimes forget things.
those ram's i really become love them cuz of u dave, great work mate
I am currently using a 1090t so thats why I was wondering how well these kits work on amd platforms. I just purchased a pair of these... I couldn't resist after reading your review
