    Transcend Information Inc., a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-performance memory modules, today launched 4GB aXeRam DDR3-2000 memory kits for use with Intel’s LGA1156 Core i5 and Core i7 platforms. The XMP-ready DDR3 kits are designed to operate at a blazing-fast clock frequency of 2000 MHz with an exceptionally low voltage of just 1.65V.

    Featuring memory bandwidth up to an incredible 32GB/s, Transcend’s new aXeRam dual-channel memory kit is rated at 2000MHz with timings of 9-9-9-24, allowing performance enthusiasts and gamers to take their Intel Core i5 platform to the next level of memory overclocking performance. The Core i5, based on Intel’s new Nehalem architecture, is the first Intel processor to integrate both a 16-lane PCI Express 2.0 graphics port and a two-channel DDR3 memory controller, enabling all input/output and manageability functions to be handled by the single-chip Intel P55 core-logic.

    To ensure extra stability and signal integrity at high clock speeds, all aXeRam modules are comprised of 128Mx8 high-quality DDR3 FBGA chips and use robust eight-layer PCBs that fully comply with rigorous JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standards. The aXeRam DDR3 memory modules use premium DRAM chips and high thermal efficiency aluminum heat sinks with cooling fins to delivering amazing overclocking performance while maintaining cool temperatures.

    The memory kit includes two identically matched DDR3 2000MHz modules and is now available in 4GB (2GBx2) capacity.

    I wonder what kind of IC's are used? Maybe HCFO's or maybe the new Hypers?

    Really? :eek: Transcend made some of the best DDR2 on the market back a couple of years ago. Actually I have a hard time deciding what was the "best DDR2 ever" between my Buffalo Firestix, Transcend AxeRam, or early Crucial Ballistix.

    Check out this old thread. You'll see what the old Transcend sticks were capable of:

    Their aXerams are killer. Not sure what the first chips you mentioned are Paulieg, but I would hope these are hypers or something similar. They come out with this after I get my tridents!
