Kingston HYPER-X DDR2 9600 - 1200 MHz


Today up for review is the HYPER-X 9600 RAM that Kingston has kindly decided to send us for review. Before we get started there are a couple of things that we should know about this RAM. Firstly, this is the fastest DDR2 RAM available from Kingston, so if you are looking for buffing up your system for some extreme performance, this would probably your best and also most expensive choice. At first glance this RAM looks great:


 Power supply : Vdd: 1.8V ± 0.1V, Vddq: 1.8V ± 0.1V  
 Double-data-rate architecture; two data transfers per clock cycle  
 Bidirectional data strobe(DQS)  
 Differential clock inputs(CK and CK)  
 DLL aligns DQ and DQS transition with CK transition  
 Programmable Read latency 5 (clock)  
 Burst Length: 4, 8 (Interleave/nibble sequential)  
 Programmable Burst type (sequential & interleave)  
 Timing Reference: 5-5-5-15 at 1.8V / 5-5-5-15 at 2.3 - 2.35V  
 Edge aligned data output, center aligned data input  
 Auto & Self refresh, 7.8us refresh interval (8K/64ms refresh)  
 Serial presence detect with EEPROM  
 High Performance Heat Spreader  
 PCB : Height 1.180” (30.00mm), single sided component  


 Clock Cycle Time (tCK) CL=5    2.5ns (min.) / 8ns (max.)  
 Row Cycle Time (tRC)    51.5ns (min.)  
 Refresh to Active/Refresh Command Time (tRFC)    105ns  
 Row Active Time (tRAS)    39ns (min.) / 70,000ns (max.)  
 Single Power Supply of    +1.8V (+/- .1V)  
 Power    2.025 W (operating per module)  
 UL Rating    94 V - 0  
 Operating Temperature    0 C to 55 C  
 Storage Temperature    -55 C to +125 C  

While there are certainly lower latency ram sticks available out there, few will run 5-5-5-15 at 1200MHz speeds.
