1 TwinMOS Twister X   2 x 512MB PC2 6800

It’s been a while since we’ve taken a look at TwinMOS Memory modules. This
time, we take a look at their DDR2 Twister X series. From the label on the kit, the RAMs are rated PC2-6800 and I was curious about
the rated clock speed as most of the manufacturers rate their memory as PC2-6400
(DDR2 800mhz) for easy reference and identification. 6800 means it is rated
to run at 425MHz, DDR2 850MHz, though at what timings and voltage – this is
not stated. We explore this pair of Memory and uncover some rather pleasant surprises…

on.

Instead of showing you what RAM chipsets lie below the heatspreaders now, I’ll
let you guess as we go through the results – see if you make a correct guess
at the end of it.
