The Crucial story starts with Micron Technology, Inc., one of the largest dynamic random access memory (DRAM) manufacturers in the world and the only one based in the U.S. Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, Micron manufactures DRAM chips and assembles them into high-quality memory modules for sale to original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") worldwide. Over the past 26 years, Micron has learned that when you make some of the very best memory in the world, lots of companies want it, from computer makers to wireless device manufacturers to printer producers.
But then Micron asked, well, what about the end user? What about the everyday folks who want to upgrade their existing systems with OEM-quality memoryóthe home desktop user, the IT network guy, the student notebook user? Why don't we offer our memory to the public, at factory-direct pricing? So in 1996, Micron responded to a growing demand for high-quality memory upgrades among end users who wanted the best possible performance from their systems. Micron launched Crucial Technology in November of that year, and for the first time, end users had the opportunity to buy directly from the manufacturer the same memory modules bought by the world's major OEMs for original installation in their systems.
This review is some what different to what I am normally used to as our purpose for this review is to seek out the truth, we have all heard and seen some of the newer games released lately on the pc platform are memory hungry. I remember the day when booting up a game would take 128 mb and at that time 256 was the amount to have. Recently though since the emergence of dual channel 1 gig has been the standard. However, the signs are there that times are changing and to play some of the latest games you need more like 2 gig.
Now I donít know about you but I personally think 2 gig kits are pretty expensive and I believe around 50-60 percent of gamers wonít be planning this sort of upgrade due to the cost involved. So step forward Crucialís 3200 value 2 gig kit. Priced at $321 dollars (or $289 if you visit Crucial before Christmas) and £219 respectively would it be good enough to make the gamer used to performance ram with low timings make the switch to a value 2 gig kit as the price is too high and out of there reach for a low latency performance 2 gig set? Well thatís what we are here to find out.
