Team Xtreem takes DDR3 beyond 2 GHz

Team Group might have missed our recent DDR3-1333 shootout, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t moving forward: It’s DDR3-2133 provides the highest data rate we’ve yet seen.

Rated at CAS 10 using 2.1 volts, Team’s Xtreem PC3-17000 modules use custom heat spreaders to increase cooling, stability, and visual appeal. Beside it were Xtreem DDR3-1866 CAS 8 and DDR3-1600 CAS 7 modules, all available in 2x 1 GB sets.

Buyers not quite ready to take the DDR3 plunge might instead be interested in the firm’s Dark series DDR2 sets, available in 2x 512 MB, 2x 1 GB, and 2x 2 GB kits. Enhanced CAS 5 latencies at DDR2-1066 and CAS 4 at DDR2-800 promise to keep these "old standard" modules at the forefront of PC performance.

Team Xtreem is available at data rates up to 2133 MHz

Dark series DDR2 offers enhanced latencies at 800 and 1066 MHz
