At the end of 2007, I was able to take a look at some shiny new DDR3 memory from Aeneon, the Aeneon XTune DDR3-1333 Memory. This was the first DDR3 memory that I had on the bench, as well as the first time I was able to test some Aeneon memory. Over the past few months I've been able to take a look at a few other brands of DDR3, but today we are going to look at some more Aeneon DDR3, this time we'll be looking at the Aeneon XTune DDR3-1600 Memory.

I am very interested to see how this faster XTune memory will perform compared to some memory from other makers, as well it will be interesting to see how it compares to the XTune DDR3-1333 that we tested a few months ago. Our past experiences with Aeneon memory has been very good, so we will see if they can continue to raise the bar.


First Impressions:

Well my first impressions were pretty much the same as when I opened the XTune DDR3-1333 Mhz kit a few months ago, this memory is identical in looks to the 1333 Mhz version, even the packaging looks very similar. Once again this is some sharp looking memory; the black heatspreaders will look nice in pretty much any system.
