It seems like just yesterday having 2GB of RAM made a system an ultimate gaming rig, and now here comes Super Talent with their 4GB DDR2-800 kit. At first glance one might wonder if Super Talent is shipping memory kits with 4 1GB sticks, but thankfully the answer is no. There are two 2GB DDR2-800 memory modules in the kit, and it looks like they'll be hitting the street for about $438 a kit.
"San Jose, California - March 26, 2007 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and flash products, today announced a new 4 GigaByte 800MHz DDR2 memory kit that is ideal for gamers and enthusiasts. The new T800UX4GC5 is a matched pair of 2 GigaByte 800MHz DDR2 non-ECC unbuffered 240-pin DIMMs. This kit has been tested and is guaranteed to operate at 800MHz in a dual channel motherboard at 5-5-5-15 latencies at 2.1 Volts. Each module is constructed using sixteen 128Mbit x 8 FBGA chips organized into a dual-rank 256M x 64 module, and clad in Super Talent's blue cast aluminum HE heatspreader."
With most desktops having four memory slots, it is entirely possible that the new ultra-high end gaming machines might have up to 8GB of memory.
