Thats very odd timings considering there older kits 998691/998692 are 1600 MHz with timings of 6-7-6-18 which are better...

6-8-6 indicates Elpida BBSE, perhaps they have been stockpiling BBSE that can't run tRCD 7 at 800MHz and had enough on hand to put up another part number. BBSE is always limited by tRCD. BBSE that can do 800MHz+ @ tRCD7 might not be so plentiful anymore either, hard to say. those older kits smoothie quoted are quite old now and lots of things can change in that time in IC land.
