Transcend Information Inc., a worldwide leader in memory and storage products, today launched an 8GB aXeRam DDR3-2000 memory kit that contains two identically matched 4GB memory modules. With a combination of high capacity, high clock speed and exceptionally low voltage of just 1.6V, the new modules are ideal for hardcore gamers, overclockers and professional users reap the benefits of a 64-bit operating system.

64-bit processors have become mainstream in mid-range and high-end systems due to their ability to support memory capacities larger than 4GB, which is essential for memory-hungry applications such as HD video editing, large databases, virtual server farms, etc. With 8GB of total capacity, a clock frequency of 2000MHz and timings of 9-11-9-24, Transcend’s newly released dual-channel kit is a comprehensive memory upgrade solution—especially for systems with modern processors running more advanced operating systems.

Transcend now offers a complete line of aXeRam Extreme Performance DDR3 memory, including an 8GB and 4GB DDR3-2000 dual-channel kit, a 6GB DDR3-2000 triple-channel kit, and its top-of-the-line 4GB DDR3-2400 dual-channel kit, all of which have been certified for use on Intel P55-based or X58-based motherboards. Assembled with high quality finned heatsinks and backed by Transcend’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, these DDR3 memory modules ensure even the most demanding users get the most out of their high-end systems.

What bothers me about them is this Transcend’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. So does this mean when they stop making them you lose your warranty due to eol?.

I had some Axeram 1200 which failed way after they stopped making them but they did replace them with 2x2GB 1066.

I love their AxeRams, was in my old system and they clocked like a beast and ran stable. I agree with the LLW though, that did kind of tick me off.

I ordered 8GB of DDR3 RAM in 4GBx2 modules last Black Friday. I expect to be lost in an ocean of memory with memory leakage problems being a thing of the past!
