GeIL has grown to be one of the larger RAM manufactures these days. They mainly cater to overclockers and gamers with their fast memory. They have value RAM, Golden Dragon Series which uses Wafer Level Chip Scale Package chips, and Ultra series which is very high performance RAM. GeIL manufactures SODIMM modules for use in laptops including a Golden Dragon series. They also recently introduced a line of memory designed specifically for Apple desktops and laptops. This particular dual channel kit that GeIL sent over is PC4000 which runs at 500MHz. Below is a table of memory speeds to give you an idea of their rating, DDR speed, and MHz.
GeIL’s website offers a good amount of information on their products. Below are some specifications that I pulled from their website. The latency on this RAM is quite high due to the high speeds of the RAM. Normally with faster RAM you are going to see higher latency times to make up for the RAM being pushed so fast when it comes to speed.
The memory comes packaged in a clear acrylic retail case which is more than enough to keep it protected. Within the acrylic case you can see the modules which are individually packaged air tight inside of anti static bags. There is also foam padding around the RAM to keep it in place providing even more protection. It is nice to see when companies put this kind of care into the packaging of their products.
The modules are very hard to take pictures of because they are so reflective. On the left side of the modules there is the temperature thermometer which acts like look like a mood ring changing color when the heat changes. Though this is a simple idea it is very cool to see implemented on something like this.
