Howdy people. You know, if there is one thing that Core i7 processors will drive upwards .. it'll be sales of DDR3 memory. See the processor now has a memory controller integrated into it's core logic, and the good thing is .. it's designed for high frequency DDR3 memory. In fact it loves it so much that Intel decided to design a triple channel memory controller, which makes a big difference.
We understand, it's a bit of a bold move by being forced from 2 DIMM modules towards three in your PC, but trust me when I say .. it's worth the effort. The memory performance without any doubt is making a difference on the new Core i7 platform managing it's overall performance increase, and this is the reason why you have seen many press-releases from memory vendors releasing new triple channel ready memory kits.
Very blunt, a triple channel memory kit is nothing other than high frequency, low voltage DIMMs that you guys already know, the difference is that that there's now three DIMMs in the packaging.
Now I've been using Core i7 triple memory in several flavors already, and guys .. even if you won't purchase the fastest memory available in the block, the difference is orgasmic. Today will test a triple memory kit from none other than OCZ technology, renowned for their speedy part we'll take a look at their OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Gold Low-Voltage Triple Channel memory. Memory that is capable of 1600MHz DDR3 CL 8-8-8-24 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS) and comes with a lifetime warranty.
