Aeneon XTUNE Memory

Though no concrete list of list of technical specifications is available, information included with the memory modules and on the website provides a few details:

• 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.

Though the press releases show timings of 8-8-8-15 at 667MHz (DDR3-1333, PC3-10600), the SPD has a little bit of a different story, detailing 8-9-9-25 at the same speed. Hopefully, this issue will sort itself out in testing.

The Aeneon modules arrive in a standard blister pack—the kind you have to fight with scissors. The front showcases the two modules, while the back lists a short description in a variety of languages. The included manual is in just as many languages, elaborating on the details of the lifetime warranty and describing proper installation of the Aeneon modules.

The Aeneon XTUNE memory modules have attractive blue PCBs cooled with heavy aluminum heat spreaders. The XTUNE logo, along with the other designs on the heat spreader, is textured. Unlike most memory I have handled, the sticker on the back of the heat spreader provides no details on the stock timings, frequency, or voltage of the RAM, but rather just provides a model number. Everything seems in order here, continue on as we test out these modules and try to do some overclocking.
