takeMS Releases Triple-Channel DDR3 Memory Kits for Intel Core i7 Processors

The German company takeMS has now released their JEDEC-compliant triple channel DDR3 memory kits for the Intel Core i7 processors. The RAM requires 1.5v for memory voltage, and tops out at 1333Mhz. An entry-level version providing 1066 MHz speed is also available. Both variations are being offered in 3GB and 6GB kits.

The German company takeMS has now released their JEDEC-compliant triple channel DDR3 memory kits for the Intel Core i7 processors.  The RAM requires 1.5v for memory voltage, and tops out at 1333Mhz.  An entry-level version providing 1066MHz speed is also available.  Both variations are being offered in 3GB and 6GB kits.

takeMS International’s memory kits require a minimal power drain, which helps to reduce the energy consumption of the entire CPU and also alleviate some of the stress on the memory controller. As most will know from an earlier Core i7 article, unless the BIOS setting is changed, Core i7 processors automatically clock down once a temperate/power draw/TDP threshold is reached.  Since the TakeMS memory modules run at 1.5v for energy consumption, takeMS customers may be able to overclock their computers more than those using 1.65v or higher DDR3 modules (or equal speed).

Although OCZ, Corsair, Patriot, G.Skill, Gingle, and Kingston all have released their DDR3 modules earlier than takeMS, don’t count them out of the game. The takeMS DDR3 modules are definitely a top contender in the memory module industry. takeMS focuses on high quality standards and a reasonable price to performance ratio, and the company offers a 10 year warranty on its memory modules to back it up.  The element that really makes the modules stand out, though, is the low voltage requirement, which will be quite interesting to many buyers.

Intel Xeon 7460 Six Core Processor

Although most people are looking forward to the Intel Nehalem CPUs, an upgrade that maintains the mPGA604 socket platform is very attractive for many in the server space. Additional cores and performance tweaks can have a significant impact with server operations. Intel's Xeon 74xx series processors, formerly known as Dunnington, pack a mighty benefit in just moving up from a quad-core processor to hex-core solution, having six cores on a single die. However, the enormous 12MB to 16MB L3 cache also helps to ensure all six cores can access high performance main memory a lot more effectively. The massive L3 also limits the "cache syncing" traffic required between CPUs, which has been an important bottleneck for prior Intel server platforms. Boasting a 10% to 20+% performance increase per core, two additional cores per CPU package, and an easy upgrade path that only requires a BIOS update, the newest Xeon 7460 is certainly worth consideration for those that would prefer a simple upgrade for now.
