Aeneon XTUNE 1GB DDR2-1066 Dual Channel Memory Kit
March 24, 2008

In late 2007 Bigbruin.com was approached to review some high performance 1333MHz DDR3 memory by a company that I wasn't particularly familiar with. After the review of the Aeneon XTUNE 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3 dual channel memory kit was completed I realized that Aeneon could become quite a familiar name in the enthusiast memory market with a few other products offering similarly strong performance.

And that is what brings us to this review. While Aeneon is presently working on their next DDR3 offering (a 1600MHz kit), they do have a few DDR2 products in their XTune line up worth checking out. With 1GB and 2GB kits rated at speeds of 1066MHz and 1142MHz, they have enthusiasts running most modern AMD or Intel systems covered with high speed memory options.


This review is going to take a look at a PC2-8500 (1066MHz) kit rated for 5-5-5-15 timings and 1.8V. While a 2GB kit is available, we have a 1GB kit to check out. While the current rock bottom prices of memory and the demands of operating systems like Windows Vista make a 1GB less than desirable, it should provide a good idea of the type of performance buyers could expect.

Before taking a look at the kit provided for review, let's look at some of the published data taken from the Aeneon website...

Packaging:

The images below show that Aeneon packs their performance memory modules much like other brands do. The clear plastic shell provides a good look at the product, as well as at a bunch of the features and specifications printed on a paper insert.

While it may be trivial to have an issue with the packaging, I just don't like the kind that has to be destroyed to be opened.
