GeiL's Booth

Geil's booth had a very enthusiast and overclocker friendly theme with matching products and displays that demoed their bold claims.

Getting past the 1GHz speed mark seemed to be all the rage with many memory vendors in Computex 2005. Considering Geil's heritage, it didn't come as a surprise when they showed us their fastest offering - a matched pair of DDR2-1066. A demo system with this memory pair was running tests in a continuous loop to assure customers that they do work to specs.

On the DDR side of things, Geil had two interesting products worthy of high mention. Shown here is a pair from Geil's Ultra X series, which class them as extra low latency memory. What's special is that they offer the lowest operable CAS latency of CL1 at DDR400 speeds – quite a breakthrough if we should say so ourselves. Now we need boards that offer such low latency operation!

The other breakthrough on the DDR front was achieving a new speed grade of DDR-700 and that's at a CAS latency of 2.5. Take note that this is DDR1 memory, not DDR2. We weren't able to snap a shot of the memory modules as they were used within a demo system.

Geil's highly decorative Golden Dragon series using WLCSP memory packaging is now available in speed grades all the way up to DDR500, which is up from DDR400 previously.
