Apacer Real500 PC4000

1. Introduction

Apacer Technology Inc. manufactured its first RAM module back in 1998. After 7 years in the market place, Apacer has expanded its product line to include MP3 Players, embedded flash solutions, USB Flash drives and multimedia storage solutions. Apacer recently released a series of RAM modules that promise high speed performance for both DDR and DDR2 configurations.

In this review, we will be testing the Real500 PC4000 DDR-RAM modules where Apacer's engineers have managed to reach 500MHz frequency in a DDR module. We received 2 DDR modules, tested by Apacer to work in Dual Channel mode (2x512MB).

Apacer developed their own chipset for these memory modules, the Apacer AM3A5608FRT-3B. However, it should be clarified that there are two kinds of Apacer PC4000 memory modules on the market. Below you can see the other PC4000 model, offering CL3 and can be easily discerned by the gold heat spreader. These modules (as with the one in the picture below) do not use the Apacer chipset but instead, the well known Samsung TCCD. There is a wide range of manufacturers, like OCZ and Corsair, who also use the Samsung chipsets.

The Apacer chipset offers 500MHz maximum running frequency, at 2.5V (~2.9V maximum voltage, CL3).
