Patriot lets out its new Vipers
Low latency DDR3 kits
Patriot has announced its newest Viper II DDR3 kits which will feature an all new Viper heatsink and low latencies. The new Viper II series comes with a total of five different kits, three triple-channel 6GB kits for Intel Core i7 and two DDR3 4GB kits for some AMD loving action.
The top of the line is its PV236G2000LLK Viper II 6GB kit that works at 2000MHz with 8-8-8-24 latencies at 1.65V. Other announced Core i7 triple kits include 6GB PC3-15000 working at 1866MHz with 7-8-8-24 latencies and PC3-14400 working at 1800MHz with 8-8-8-24 latencies.
The 4GB Viper II lineup consists of PC3-14400 working, just like the 6GB Core i7 kit, at 1800MHz with 8-8-8-24, but at a bit higher voltage of 1.9V. The second one, PV234G1600LLK, works at 1600MHz but has a tighter latency of 7-7-7-20 at the same 1.9V.
All kits use a new Viper II aluminum heatsinks. We had a chance to see these at this years CeBIT show, where Patriot was still deciding which one to use on its new Viper lineup, and back then, prototypes of this heatsink looked really good and felt like a solid piece of aluminum ready for some high performance kits.
