Our feelings about the Kingston PC1066
RDRAM we bought from Mushkin are mixed at best. At the memory's stock speeds,
RDRAM is simply a monster and can dish out memory bandwidth and performance
that's not rivalled by any other memory system.
When teamed up with a powerful P4 533 MHz based processor and an i850/E based
motherboard you're going to have top performance.
With memory prices rising the two sticks of 256MB Mushkin PC1066 RDRAM is a
tad pricey at $400 USD, it's about the same price as a low
very hot and we're left
wondering if it is almost time to start putting a fan on these types of memory
modules... In an enclosed case PC1066 would be quite a hot spot and difficult to
cool by convection alone.
As far as enthusiasts and overclockers are concerned, our overclocking
attempts were good, but not amazing. The PC1066 from Kingston wouldn't go
past 136 MHz while maintaining its maximum RDRAM frequency. Still, if you
want the fastest memory currently available in 16-bit flavor as far as RDRAM is
concerned, Kingston's PC1066 is a really good option to consider... just be
weary of that high price!
