Patriot Gamer 2 AMD Edition PC3-12800 8GB Kit Review - PCSTATS.com Patriot Gamer 2 AMD Edition PC3-12800 8GB Kit Review
Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 4:05PM | Filed under: Memory| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"AMD systems are a little picky when it comes to RAM. Sure, most RAM will work, but quite often when we start to hit high speed kits they can have problems running at stock speed on an AMD platform. With the launch of the new 990FX chipset that's ready for Bulldozer along with the new Llano platform which has shown strong memory performance, it was only a matter of time 'till we saw some AMD specific kits." The first in a long while comes from Patriot and is part of the Gamer 2 series with the particular kit we're dealing with being labelled "AMD Edition", which of course means it's designed for AMD systems. Coming in at 1600MHz DDR, the PC3-12800 8GB kit carrying a 9-9-9-24 @ 1.65v - 1.7v isn't a really high speed kit. It is of course an 8GB kit, though, which does tend to impact the speed we have. Combined with the fact it's an AMD one as well, we see that the speed can be limited a little more again. Still, hopefully we'll see some overclocking potential from the kit."
