Patriot Viper DDR3 1600 Tri Channel 6 GB Kit - Patriot Viper DDR3 1600 Tri Channel 6 GB Kit

One of the most amazing things about the Core i7 platform is that it took DDR3 and brought it to maturity. On previous platforms the gain from moving to DDR3 from DDR2 brought negligible results. When Core i7 and Triple Channel memory hit the market and memory bandwidth jumped from 8-10 GB/s to above 30 GB/s, in some cases, DDR3 made people stand up and take notice. While Core i7 is the most powerful platform we've ever seen, the processor didn't triple its performance, but it did triple RAM performance. RAM performance is the single largest gain on the Core i7 platform, so we've been paying a lot of attention to RAM kits. We're lucky enough to have a 6 GB kit of Patriot Viper Tri Channel memory that runs at 1600 MHz and timings of 8-8-8-24 to take a look at today. Let's take these beauties for a spin and see if they can satisfy our discriminating taste for high end RAM.
