seems like a good idea. I dont have a need for either the software or RAM, but may be a good idea if your building for someone else.

Mushkin did this a long time ago, bought a 4GB kit from them and got Vantage with it, think was over a year ago.

Hmmm are they just giving them away because they just have alot in stock maybe? And most people building new systems are going to DDR3 for obvious reasons..? just a thought.

Yup. Right around the time Vantage was released.

It sometimes does make a difference. Some companies program the spd chip with lower timings for 'stock fsb speeds' so even if people are putting them in oem mashines where overclocking isn't possible, they'll be faster than whatever they replaced.

"Even with the emergence of DDR3, DDR2 technology is far from becoming obsolete," says Les Henry, Patriot's Director of Engineering. "Incorporating our Viper II heat shield technology into our high-end gaming for DDR2 gives the consumer a choice. And by combining our products with Futuremark's state of the art software it becomes a real win-win for the consumer."

Except for the fact that a good 75-80% of the people that would want a copy of Vantage with their RAM are the people that are buying DDR3 for their rig anyways...

I got a couple of copies a while back when I bought some Mushkin RAM. Several companies have done this throughout the years.
