Apacer a lansat noua serie Aeolus de memorii DDR3 (1800MHz si 1600MHz) pentru overclocking. Acestea folosesc cel mai avansat proces de productie de la Micron Technology, in configuratie DDR3 / 1Gbit / 128Mx8. Arhitectura dual-channel asigura o latime de banda maxima de 28.8GB (1800MHz) / 25.6GB (1600MHz) cu latente scazute (CL7-7-7-20), conferind memoriilor Apacer Aeolus DDR3 o performanta excelenta in categoria de memorii DDR3 1800MHz / 1600MHz.
Exceptand vitezele mari de functionare si latentele scazute, aceste memorii sunt dotate cu un sistem activ de racire care reduce temperatura din timpul functionarii cu aproximativ 20 de grade C. Aceasta solutie eficienta de racire asigura viteze mai mari in overclocking dar si o stabilitate crescuta a acestor memorii.
Grace Lo, Senior Director of Apacer's DRAM Division, explains that the operating frequency for DDR3 overclocking memory modules has risen to 1600MHz, 1800MHz and even 2000MHz. If memory die is operating for an extended period in a high-frequency, high-voltage environment, the memory chip will inevitably reach a high temperature. This heat must be dissipated as rapidly as possible to ensure that the stability of the memory module is not compromised; extended periods of high-temperature operation could affect the module's lifespan. Most of the overclocking memory products on the market today ignore the importance of the heat spreader to overclocking memory performance; the vast majority of commercial overclocking memory module products continue to use traditional, standard-sized heatsink designs that reduce the temperature by only around 3 to 5 degrees. Heatsinks of this type are simply unable to cope with the high temperatures created by DDR3 overclocking. As a result, many overclocking enthusiasts complain that memory module heatsinks are completely useless.
Apacer's new DDR3-1800MHz/1600MHz memory module provides 2GB of memory capacity in a dual-channel (2x1GB) package, and supports Intel's latest XMP (Extreme Memory Profiles). When used with a motherboard that supports Intel XMP, the chipset will automatically read the memory module's SPD (Serial Presence Detect) and will then automatically perform overclocking, enabling the user to experience all the excitement and power that overclocking has to offer.
