Qimonda AG announced it is supporting NVidia Corp.'s nForce 790i SLI platform with its 1Gbyte Aeneon XTUNE DDR3-1600 DRAM modules.

The combination of NVidia 's first DDR3 ready platform and Qimonda 's DDR3 memory technology offers gamers a path to intelligent scaling of graphics performance.

Qimonda has tested its Aeneon XTUNE 1Gbyte DDR3 modules at overclock rates greater than 1680MHz using a nominal supply voltage of 1.5V. The ability to provide high-level gaming performance at low voltage reduces the amount of power consumed and the heat generated, which reduces cooling requirements and can enhance system reliability and life expectancy, the company said.

The XTUNE DDR3-1600 memory module is available as 2x 1Gbyte kit. It is tested to run at 1600MHz at a latency timing of CL9 with the low supply voltage of 1.5V, providing a bandwidth of up to 12.8MByte/s on module level. The memory modules also feature the Enhanced Performance Profile 2 (EPP2) to perform their full potential when used in the NVIDIA nForce 790i SLI platform.

The XTUNE DDR3-1600 Dual Channel Kit (2x 1Gbyte) is available now for $340 through Aeneon resellers.
