The Mushkin 1GB XP4000 2-2-2 REDLINE Dual Pack was tested at 250MHz (DDR500) 1T command rate. It was tested using the ultra low timings of CL 2-2-2-5. The memory was set to run at 1:1 synchronous with the CPU and with the vDIMM set at 3.3v. Testing was done under Dual Channel configuration. For comparison, we used another UTT based memory capable of running the same settings, the G.Skill Extreme PC3200 2-2-2-5 1GB Kit. Because the Mushkin 1GB XP4000 2-2-2 REDLINE Dual Pack can also run at the incredible latencies of CL 1.5-2-2-5, we also included the results generated from these timings.

DDR500 at CL1.5??!! :drooling:

Sweet P4 ram, but meh hardly any benefit for Athlon 64 from that huge 7k bandwith ;) , now 2 gigs running at that would be impressive.

Actually since Athlon64 like low cas, I would think it would benefit from 1.5.

It probably would. But on the order of 1-2% at best total performance improvement.

I have the ram. Havent pushed it, but runs 261 2225 with a divider no problem. BTW, cas 1.5 and cas 2.0 have the same oc ceiling. Actually, some are reporting that cas 2.0 has a 1-2 mhz LOWER oc celing than cas 1.5. But neways, I hit this speed and stopped messing with it. No need. Good ram.
