Super Talent Technology are already known on these pages for their high-performance solid state drives, but the memory company also specialises in speciality RAM under their Project X banner. Intended for gamers and other users who demand excessive performance from their systems, Super Talent are claiming their new Project X DDR3-1800 4GB kit is the first on the market offering that much memory running at that fast a speed. Rivals, apparently, have only managed DDR3-1600.
The company manufacturers their own chips, as well as the toothy aluminium head spreaders you can see in the photos. These boast double the surface area and 106-percent more aluminium mass than standard heat spreaders, and are joined with Super Talent’s own thermal adhesive. The result is “aggressive latencies” and a lifetime warranty.
Of course, you pay for all that performance; those of you who blanch at the sight of standard Crucial RAM should look away now. The DDR3-1800 4GB kit – comprising two 2GB sticks and the heatsinks – is priced at around $499. It’s available today from eWiz.
