You are located in central California, just south of San Francisco. The weather is always nice, the location is perfect, and business couldn't be better. Flash memory is taking off like the latest shuttle launch and DRAM memory requirements are always rising. With over 160 patents in memory technology & manufacturing under your belt and over 20 years of success dating back to the days as MA Labs, you have evolved into the single largest memory module production manufacturer located in North America. You are none other than, Super Talent Technology Inc..

Always at the leading edge of DRAM technology, it was no surprise to see the press releases this past summer from Super Talent regarding DDR3 modules. Then in the early fall, the new heat sink design was announced and their top-end DDR3 modules were outfitted sporting the new design. With increased surface area and increased mass, Super Talent aimed to further push the DRAM cooling envelope with the Project X memory heat sink.

The DDR3 market is growing steadily now that DDR3 motherboards have entered their second generation of compatible Intel chipsets and is predicted to make the turn to mainstream sometime in 2007. Back when DDR2 was first introduced , prices were astronomically high and look where they are now. The same appears to be holding true with DDR3 and the high prices appear to be taking that first step in coming down. Also like DDR2, some of the highest performance memory kits were released early on and continue to hold their own today. Super Talent is again at the front of that effort to push the envelope with the W1800UX2GP Project X DDR3-1800 Cl7 2GB kit that we will be test driving today. So buckle up, hold on to the roll cage, and prepare to be launched into the elite world of high frequency, low latency DDR3 memory!
