First review of the year 2009 and i would like to start by saying Happy New Year and wishing the best for all of you. May 2009 bring joy and happiness to everyone on earth.
Up until about twelve years ago memories did not exceed 128MB, used to run at a maximum of 133MHz and Dual Channel was just an imaginary concept. Since then we have embraced dual channel memory kits that can go up to 12GB and run at speeds up to twenty times faster. Of course with the introduction of the new Intel Core i7 family of processors and the all new X58 chipset companies started introducing various DDR3 Triple Channel Kits designed specifically for that platform which according to manufacturers is of the same importance like when we jumped from single to dual channel memories.
Chaintech was founded in 1986 and immediately started manufacturing quality motherboards of ultra performance, stability and compatible design. Soon afterwards they started manufacturing graphics card of impressive performance and quality. In 2005 Chaintech changed its name to Walton Chaintech following its controlling interest acquired by Walton Advanced Engineering, one of the pioneering IC testing and packaging house. In the same year, Walton Chaintech officially became one of the members in the PSA group (Passive System Alliance). Later on in 2006 Chaintech having stopped all mainboard manufacturing activities jumped onto the memory market by creating a new brand name called APOGEE with the intend to bring customers product varieties with the advantages of strong capabilities of IC sourcing, packaging, testing and embraced by the vertical support chain of PSA Group. Their APOGEE Memory Modules are processed in the flow of "Wafer-in" to "Module-out", and all modules are produced in-house under strictly quality control.
Today we are in the happy position to announce that we are the first World Wide to review their latest APOGEE GT TRIPLE CHANNEL DDR3 2GHz 6GB Kit. This kit features 8 layers on each module and runs at the incredible speed of 2000MHz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.95V. Due to the high quality of the modules they should prove to be quite the overclockers but even if they don't, 2GHz speed is already breathtaking and certain that it will not disappoint. This review is the first in which i will be using my first brand new i7 setup.
