Though the memory manufacturers are still designing and building new DDR2 memory modules, DDR3 memory is here and being used. There are plenty of motherboards out there that utilize DDR3 memory, and new modules are being introduced monthly.

No, you have probably not yet heard of Aeneon. Aeneon is a division of a German company Qimonda, the world's third largest manufacturer of DRAM, part of Infineon Technologies AG. So, there is really nothing new about Aeneon but the name.


- The 1GB single module can be organized as 64M x 64-bit DDR2-1066 based on 8 components 64M x 8-bit DDR2 FBGA components.
- The single module is tested to run at DDR3-1333 at a latency timing of 8-8-8-15 at the standard DDR3 voltage value of 1.5 V.
- The Dual Channel Kit is coming with two identical modules tested together in DUAL CHANNEL MODE at DDR3-1333 at a latency timing of 8-8-8-15 on several platforms.

First Looks

The Xtune modules come in a hermetically-sealed hanging blisterpack that requires scissors or a knife to open. Inside is included an installation booklet written in English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, and Portuguese.

The heat spreaders are fairly heavy aluminum, and use thermal tape to make contact with the DRAM chips. They are very attractive, in satin black with raised letters, "Tune" and the Aeneon logo have a mirror finish, and the "X" is covered with shiny red paint.

The PCBs are blue. It's a shame they covered the cool blue boards with heat spreaders, but that's the way it is.

The modules have been tested to run in dual-channel at DDR3-1333, with timings of 8-8-8-15, at the standard PC3 voltage of 1.5v.
